2013 Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Drive And Review: The Scooter For

I’m a cruiser owner. I’ve got to that image has something to do my pride of ownership. I like how my looks, and I like what it about me.

I recently parked my in Brea, California at Suzuki Suzuki Motor of America, headquarters, and rode off on a Suzuki 650 ABS for a two-week test drive.

The is a mega-scooter. A casual observer not immediately recognize the difference a scooter and a motorcycle, but to riders self-evident. A motorcycle is built its engine, which occupies the position in the bike.

In order to mount a the rider must swing a leg the seat.

To mount a scooter, the just steps through the and sits down. If a Harley-Davidson Softail is a prototypical motorcycle, a Vespa is the prototypical scooter. the Harley rider reclining in the feet out in front, hands up on the bars.
