Is the Xciting 250 better than a

I used to own a Kymco Bet — Win When the Xciting 250/500 coming out everyone was so eXcited getting one. I was down at the and while I didn’t get a chance to one, I did get to look it over a lot the differences between the 250 and the 500 are basically the of discs for the front brakes and the size, what I saw is applicable for the

Storage for a scooter owner, is a consideration…otherwise, we’d be buying a wouldn’t we? I walked up to the Xciting and Id see an improvement over my much B-W. I didn’t. The Xciting storage isn’t much than the B-W . which is why almost all owners invest in a top box. The Burgman 400 has the largest underseat of any maxi-scooter sold in the USA.

You can fit two full-face helmets under with room to spare. Or way to look at it is what I do each day mine.

I can fit a Nolan N102 helmet TourMaster jacket and with those bulky jacket liner, gloves and have enough room over for a pair of shoes if the seat I had planned to buy a top box, but I find anything to put in it. I looked at the also, and while it has almost as storage, the area is split two parts. An advantage to the Majesty is the pillion storage area can be without opening the seat.

would be handy for when you are and have a lot of things tied on top of the seat. Otherwise though, it as practical or as large. Under the the Burgman also has two small pocket enclosures that are enough to put your tie-downs, kit, etc inside and out of the way of the main area.

In the front fairing, I was again in the Kymco Xciting. My Bet-Win had a hook in front to hang from. With the huge fairing of the Xciting, I expected a storage bin. There much. What was there was as much as only one of the two small in the Burgman’s front fairing, big enough to hold sunglasses and a other small items.

The in the Burgman is that there are two of smaller bins…and also a full-width lockable storage under them. The left has the battery, so it only goes in way. But the right side in over a foot and is large that I can put a gallon sized bag in there stuffed with food, socks, toiletries and a for homeless people I find on the off-ramps.

The point is that it is huge in and totally lacking on the Xciting.

The seat is supposedly lower the B-W seat, but it was so wide, I couldn’t the ground as easily as on the B-W. As mentioned on the Kymco forum, the seats are hard and the Burgman far better. And I think you’ll the Burgman 400 ergonomics fit a wider of rider sizes than the or Majesty. (Blackbeard can give you details on his experience of looking at all I can attest to this much.

After riding for an hour to in the mornings, I look forward to back on the Burgman 400. The is very comfortable for me. While the has more horsepower, it also has weight.

I think if you read the made on both the Kymco and the BurgmanUSA forum, you’ll people disappointed with the top end of the (@90 mph) and people who run their 07 Burgman 400s 100 mph, both indicated and

I don’t think you’ll a more economical 400-500cc out there than the Burgman The Kymco Xciting 500 gets 50 mpg, which some think is good. Many of us of the new Burgman 400s average 65 mpg.

So not only does the keep up with the larger Xciting, it beats it for efficiency.

When I finished looking at the I was disappointed. I had expected great from Kymco. The Bet-Win and scooters had seemed well out, and Kymco had a clean to design from with the

But I think they did a poor job of it by not good use of the opportunity. It was like the designing the Xciting hadn’t looked at the competition and tried to on what they saw. The the square” in adding features, but make the most of what had.

I hadn’t expected it, but I got on my little B-W 250 and thought I was getting on the bike…even though it was a much design and about $1000 in cost than the Xciting 250 I had at. If you look at Burgman 400 reviews, note of the model year reviewed. Suzuki redesigned an good bike in 2007 and just about everything on it. the only thing left was the general shape and name.

Prior to 2007, I’d say the Yamaha set the standard. After the redesign, I Suzuki raised the bar and has set a higher
