You cannot compare a or a BV to a Burgman 650, which is in a different price and category

However, what is rather to my Italian eyes is the fact Burgman 400’s price is than Scarabeo’s in the US!

In Italy, Burgman 400 is considered as a range scooter and it comes at � ca (9000+ $). A Scarabeo 500ie can be at 5500 � ca (8000+ $).

Well if a is possible, it should be between 400 and Scarabeo 500. Briefly, as to I read, Burgman is more but

has a higher fuel consumption, is and more tourist-oriented. Scarabeo has performance, better brakes in its category), lower fuel (record in its category) is lighter and its position is similar to a motorbike’s. has a more scooter-like driving higher footrests, lower wider handlebars. Scarabeo is fit for taller riders, but it all boils to personal taste.
