Staff blog: Burgman v Tmax: the jury's out

One or two readers have commented that they doubt the Burgman 650 is as good as some other big scooters out there, like Yamaha’s Tmax or BMW’s C600 Sport. This week I’ll be finding out.   I'm doing a group test of six big scooters, also including the Honda Integra, Aprilia SRV850 and BMW C650GT.   I’ll be doing my 160-mile commute on each of ...

Staff blog: I've got to stay up - someone on the internet doesn't like the Burgman

Every time I write a blog on the Burgman, I seem to become embroiled in debate with critics of the scooter.   I don’t know why I feel the need to convince others to like it. It reminds me of that joke about internet arguments, where a wife asks her husband if he’s coming to bed and he says: “No. ...

Staff blog: In defence of the Burgman, pt 1

I’m experiencing mild frustration at some of the preconceptions I’ve encountered about the Burgman.

So far five reader comments have ...

Staff blog: How much?

I got a shock when I saw the price of new standard rear tyre for the Burgman 650 ABS Executive from a Suzuki dealer: £184 plus £30 for fitting.   The first one has just been replaced during the 4000 mile service, which costs £135. So that’s a total of £349.   I do 800 miles a week commuting to ...

Staff blog: A question for readers

I’ve been accused of being over-critical of bikes in the past. A spot of rust after a couple of months and I have a whinge about it in print. “What about the positives?” a manufacturer once complained.  So I’m not going to do that this time. I’m going to report that the Burgman 650 ABS Executive is a fantastic, underestimated ...

Staff blog: The myth of the Burgman's small tank

I've established the Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has a much longer tank range than it’s credited with.   Some reports have estimated it at 150 miles, probably because the fuel warning starts flashing at about 130. In fact you’ve got a bar left on the gauge and at least 40 miles in the tank at that point.   There’s ...
