2004 BURGMAN AN400

Milage: Miles

Likes: Reliability, of maintenance, Comfort. 85mpg.

Dislikes: Small wheels, oil consumption

Review: “ I owned this scoot new and have now clocked just 154,000kms. It has cost me over 8 $6500 in maintenance costs, spent on tyres. My 4th drive has now done 36,000kms — twice that recommended by the OEM but very little signs of It can be an expensive bike to maintain, but if you can do the like belt, valve oil changes etc. then the cost can be no different to that of a sized bike.

In the 8 years of it has broken down 3 times, all of my own doing. Variator nut working destroying both housing and cone, 2 times and the ignition burning out due to using bigger head light bulbs recommended.

Yes, the windscreen is too but by adding a 120mm hi laminar and side handle grip problem solved. Right the day I purchased the bike, it consumed Doesn’t burn it, just it through the PAR valve. Many bikes have been due to loss of oil, seizures, but if one the oil before any long trip and not let it below the indicator, no problem.

1 cup of oil 400kms is lost . The K7+ model have this problem, but have noisy clutches.

I replaced both clutch and pads at 96,000kms, not because of Can’t complain. As far as comfort I have ridden 760 kms in one day, mild rear end numbness and a wrist.

I have made a seat pad of 3 inch foam has solved the problem, but without the the standard seat is not up to it.

I have had real bikes, in the past, their odd quirks and thrills, but at my age quite content to cruise at If you want the bike to last hammer it, get a bigger bike. the secret to their longevity.

For reliability, no other scoot can them. Words I will for. — JD

Dislikes: Seat

Review: “Having from the city to the country and doubled my commute, I knew I was to need something bigger my little 125cc scoot. the Burgman 400 was not my first choice, I not been disappointed in it.

She is more of a scooter than anything The Burgman seems to run best at speeds. Open her up and let her go — easy to creep up to 80 mph and not hear any in the engine. My average mpg is in the low 60’s at those speeds.

It’s a comfortable bike, in that sitting in a very relaxed With a comfortable seat you can put miles on the bike without about it.

Storage is ample, enough room for my full helmet, gloves, sweater and jacket when I am at work. maintenance (oil changes for is simple and easy to do.

Now the bad news: The stock windshield is crap. At 6 tall, the air blows right it and into your face. Not much of an issue but it will a weird buffeting effect and a lot of wind noise.

Best to get a or Givi windscreen and replace it. The is not the most comfortable thing in the but it’s easily fixed some sort of additional

Review: ”I love my It’s my second one. extremely well thought out and the are simply perfect. As a single it could be considered noisy, but far from being an annoyance.

got plenty of pick up and is very balanced. So well that you can it with the throttle if you lean too

Saddle is tiring over distances and with sunglasses, you see the speedo. It should have dials! I’ve installed a which is a bit taller and I have no whatsoever on my face.

I recommend

I love the styling. People comment on that. I can put 5 plastic bags under my saddle. effortlessly run it at 95mph on the highway. But


1000 — 5000

Likes: Not one issue with baby. Fast great Lots of leg room, MPG is great, of storage under seat

Hard to see gauges with is my only complaint

Review: had 9 bikes since spring of Two 750 Shadows, Two Honda Reflex, One Helix, an Aspencad 1200, a 250 Q a 2004 Aprilia Atlantic 2004 Silver Wing and a keeper: my 2008 Burgman 400 S I wish I had rode one 9 bikes The Givi Windscreen is ok but not in windy

I will not change the Burgman

I ride with SOS ( Seniors on in Richmond, In. Most members a Silver Wings and Helix’s, are all great bikes but my choice is my 400. I am 6’4” and it has great leg I did add a top box which looks like the dollar Givi box but costs a lot money.

It holds two helmets, suit and more things. The seat storage is huge So this is my keeper for sure. makes excellent bikes -)”

2011 SUZUKI 400

Milage: 0 — 1000

Likes: Ergonomics, Handling, Braking, Fun

Dislikes: None but could be an inch or two more for taller riders. It fits me at 5’10”

Review: ”OK, I got it yesterday and have 50 miles on it so but I am an experienced MC rider and LOVE the and handling. My last bike was a BMW R1100RT, which I loved too. I always considered small until I test the Burgman’s this weekend. The 650 was impressive for ride, features and but the 400 had much of the same with a practical side and still of performance for my needs.

It honks down the freeway at 75 or 80 passenger and feels good. I not want to do a 1000 miles a passenger, but the Burgman would not except on a very steep perhaps.”

2011 SUZUKI 400

Milage: 0 — 1000

Likes: Stable, quick, economical, copious storage, fun

Seat could be more for long rides, and the windshield provide more protection

”I own a 2004 Honda though I like and enjoy the I have longed for something heavier, and more stable subject to winds or cross like when an 18 wheeler you. I considered the Kymco 300i, the Yamaha Majesty, and the Burgman 400. When I saw a new, leftover 2011 400 ABS for $6,500, I HAD to get it!

My Burgman has about 750 on the clock, which means I did the first oil change. Though I had a lot of miles on the machine yet, had enough to form a good, impression. Here’s what I so far.

The mileage for a machine of size and power was a pleasant I’ve seen 50 mpg when mostly in the city, while I can high 50s to low 60s on a trip. Considering my Helix gets high 60s to low 70s on a ride (i.e. on a trip), great!

Having the extra and speed is nice to have; it that freeway riding is now a option for me. Though back are more fun, sometimes use is necessary. Though the Helix and 250cc scooters are freeway they’re not freeway viable, in my in other words, if one uses a on the freeway, it should only be for distances, like from one to the next. Conversely, the Burgman 400 handle freeways with

For the added power, stability and that the Burgman 400 offers, the 10 mpg was well worth it.

The stability of the is a welcome surprise also. The though a fun, little is also a light machine. its light weight make it suited for operating on city its light weight make it when operating on windy or around 18 wheelers.

While you wind gusts on the Burgman, you feel them enough to that they’re there; you get the crap scared out of you when you hit a gust of wind. The Burgman 400 go where you want to, and will to go there until you change

Because the Burgman 400 is bigger and it simply isn’t as quick and in the city as a 250cc scooter my Helix. One cannot expect the 400 to be as agile in the city though. it has bigger wheels (14 front a 13 rear vs. a 12 front and a 10 rear for the which generate more force, which means harder to initiate a turn. the Burgman 400 outweighs the Helix by 150 pounds.

That said, the 400, with its low center of is fairly easy to maneuver in the

How are speed and acceleration? In a word, are excellent. Unless going a high performance bike or you will handily pull when the light turns Top speed is good too.

my Helix will barely hit mph, the Burgman 400 will do all day long and have something over. Top speed so far was 93, which I hit for a few a couple of weeks after I got it. the engine loosens up, I expect the top to be in the neighborhood of 95-100 mph-more fast enough on two wheels days!

Finally, the the Burgman is It has a huge storage compartment the seat! I dare say you could put 2-4 bags of groceries in it, depending on in the bags. Did I mention that the storage compartment is lit?

It is! That’s a nice, thoughtful The glove box is a good size, and it has a 12V so you can charge your mobile In the dash, there are two openings, one on side of the handle bars; compartments are big enough to hold garage door opener, or money for tolls, and other

You push a button, the doors pop up, and you them to the side.

However, all that the Burgman 400 has going for it, not a perfect bike; it has issues, any two wheeler does. My main with the Burgman 400 are the seat and the

My main gripe with the is the seat; it’s just a tad too for long rides. I was out on an all day ride past Sunday, and I was feeling it I got home. Consider getting a pad from Aerostitch, or getting a seat if one is available.

My second with the Burgman 400 is that the wind screen simply NOT provide the protection I would Though it protects my upper from wind blast, it the slipstream directly at my helmet; ear are a MUST on this machine! read about this elsewhere, so this was no surprise.

I am going to change the wind in the near future though. The one simply is not up to scratch.

Overall, I am pleased with my purchase; the 400 ABS is everything I thought it would be. quick, stable, practical, and fun. It’s a machine big enough to some touring, yet light enough for in town use It’s not too big, not too small; not too fast, not too slow; it’s not too not too light.

To put it another way, like Goldilocks; it’s right! I do wish that the seat and wind screen better though. The big question is would I buy this bike Absolutely!

If you’re looking for a that is practical and can do a lot of things you cannot go wrong purchasing the 400. My only regret is I didn’t get one sooner. )”

Review: ” I searched for scooters in this power and bigger, but the Burgman 400 always out ahead of the competition. It seemed well thought out than the not too big or too small (just right)for a of driving conditions.
