Suzuki Burgman 400 test


Initiator of the new wave of maxi-scooters- the Suzuki AN 400 Burgman has been in the two wheel game for over two years. The competition is in pursuit of what this new sector will generate- the appearance of a BI-cylinder 650cc. The Burgman 400 has profited from concentrating on its initial vocation- the city- At around 6000 euros- close to 2000 euros less than its principle competitors- the Burgman 400- certainly puts the brakes on the price.


A high windjammer- spacious foot rests- and an especially comfortable riding position. As it should- being a scooter of this depth- the equipment is complete- gas gauge- clock- temperature gauge- and hand brake light. Security has been considered with a parking brake and a contactor protected by a magnetic mechanism. The rear view mirrors offer good visibility and the lights are of good quality.

The Suzuki comes equipped with two stands; the opening of the foot stand leaves an easy access to the rear stand. The 400 has been well thought out for the comfort of the passenger. It comes with a real seat back- an ergonomic seat and finally well-positioned grips.

The Burgman 400 comes with many storage areas- an empty pocket- glove box- a gas trap and a trunk with 53 litres of capacity- easily enough room for two helmets or a large nap sack.


To power this beast- Suzuki uses a 385cc liquid cooled monocylinder carburetor system. Vibrating is controlled by balance beam. Docile and progressive- it looks to adapt to urban usage and to allow easy access to a large number.

The statistics are here for remembering- the mono cylinder develops 32 horsepower at 8000 rpm and produces 3.3 mkg of torque at 6000 rpm. Its the performance of a scooter and not of a 400cc motorcycle.

The chassis built on a coarse tubular steel frame is solid- a scooter type fork that has a large diameter of 41mm and a mono- shock at the back. The brakes are coupled with the front and rear brakes operated by the left lever. The right lever engages a single action piston for the front disc.

A cable that engages the rear brakes is used to lock the scooter in gear while parked.

The Suzuki wants to be all everything- not just for the eyes but for the wrists too. The mono cylinder runs smoothly- well aided by a classic transmission- using the integrated variation at the oscillating arm. Soft and neutral this scooter is perfect for everyday traffic.

It’s the ease of controlling that wins the day for the Burgman. Perfectly at ease in congestion- easy to handle and natural- the Suzuki unveils its talents in town- a real go anywhere machine. However- the Burgman doesn’t fair well on the open road and can’t be mistaken for a motorcycle.

However- without going into the concept of scooters- the Burgman 400 wants to be efficient n the fast lanes and his stable at its top speed at 130km/h. Security obliged- the coupled brake system is also one of its strong points.
