I have a 650 2006 Burgman and have done 30000 klms on it.This bike always attracts attention because is so different. It is an open road tourer and its better than anything I have ridden for the job. Its not good with a passenger,clumsy in town and heavy on fuel.
Out on the open road its a delight and will cruise at 140 klm per hour all day. The Buggie will carry a stack or stuff under the seat,seating position is good and the foot rests are long a let tired riders stretch out. The 650 won't outrun a super bike,not even close. But over long distance you probably arrive quicker because of less fatigue.
This is not a scooter and if climb off a 250 onto one of these than be careful or it will bite you.
If you have got a few years clocked up but still love to ride grab one of these machines. The other club members may laugh at you but not for long once the see just how well these things go.Highly practical,great lights,good comfort and very fast long distance tourer. These things are the original wolf in sheeps clothing machines.
Buy one spend a 2000klms getting the feel of it . Chances are you will never buy an ordinary bike again
