The Suzuki Burgman 125 is a beautiful bike. It is sexy and stylish. I passed my CBT last year then saw the Burgman in a shop window and had to have it. Although as a rookie rider who had only ridden a scooter twice before, at first I found it a bit heavy to maneuver for parking etc but soon got used to it. I have since passed my motorbike test and love cruising and commuting on my bike. Because of it's size I feel safe and able to hold my own on the road. It is pretty nippy too and... (read more)

I've had my baby burger for nearly 3 years now, and in that time it has been an expensive bike to maintain, partly due to garages not being honest and not doing the work they should have done though.
The biggest pain for me is the rate she goes through tyre's and pads, it's quiet alarming!
Up untill March this year, she was going fine, now though she struggles to get past 30mph, so today I am replacing the Clutch roller's to see if that makes a difference.
Aside from all the problems I... (read more)

First off I would like to say I'm writing this review as I get the impression some reviews are FAKE
I have owned this Suzuki Bergman 125 k8 injection for about a year in that time it has been 100% reliable
This Burgman excels in 3 main areas
2. Storage capacity
3. Engine performance
it starts first time every time I just have to touch the start button for 1 second and it fires up .unlike the Italian piece of _ _ _ _ it replaces.
The Aprillia I owned while on paper was... (read more)

I passed my CBT and decided I loved being on 2 wheels. Had a look at several bikes (manual and automatics) and settled with my 2006 (55 plate) K6 125 Burgman. I'm 6 foot 1 inch, bought it off eBay (which on reflection wasn't such a good idea) but love as much now as I ever have!
Let's start with the good points. There's lots of under seat storage, even for a 6th form college student doing maths, physics, chemistry and biology which has a lot of books and handouts to go with them. It's got a... (read more)

Generally not a bad scooter, plenty of underseat storage, and handles well. Now for the downside it simply does not like water whether it be rain or standing water the engine cuts out and doesn't want to start again for a few moments - not a great confidence booster when stood at traffic lights and even worse when waiting to make a right hand turn. Dealer has no idea on rectifying the problem. (read more)

Absolute joy. Massively comfortable, compared to my old vespa 125 et4. And just as reliable. I expect a bit of trouble, hell it's only a little 125 at the end of the day. And it does get used a lot. But over all the benefits overcome the negatives. Great all weather protection, and reduced wind noise.
Rolls Royce of 125's compared to other little scooters. (read more)

Love the suziki burgman bike. Injection model, - starts every day. Wonderful storage-rooms!! Brakes are very good! This is my third Suzuki, and I have been very satisfied. Problem is, - I dont know anything else!! The bike uses 0,32 litre pr 10 km. I cant find anything I dont like with the bike. For getting to work in a town, between 2 rows of cars, it is perfect. But it is also a cruiser! If I had the time, I would take it on a tour round europe. You sit like a king on this bike! (read more)

I have had the pleasure of owning my Suzuki Burgman 125cc for about two months now. I have covered just over 1000 miles. In this time I had ridden in Heavy Rain and could not be more pleased. The scooter is agile, responsive and generally a pleasure to drive. I feel safe riding it and the machine has a good road presence due to its size.
I took her in for the all important 600 miles Service and no major issues or problems have occurred. All in all this is a very nice Scoot. I currently make... (read more)

Had nothing but trouble with my Suzuki Burgman, bought it in Jan '08 on a 57-plate.
It regularly cuts out in wet weather, and I've had it back to the dealer seven times for problems. Not only does it cut out, and take a minute or two to start up again, but I've had a broken speedo cable, an under-seat light that won't go out and flattens the battery, and it also burns oil.
It's currently been off the road for nearly two weeks after cutting out at 65 mph, and even the RAC patrol was... (read more)

I have had Suzuki Burgman 125 for a nearly two years now and it was an excellent commuter and little bike to learn on. the fairing and tall screen was great in winter. being 6 ft it is the only scooter that I can ride without looking silly, it had plenty of leg room and the seat was very comfortable both for rider and pilion.

In my opinion the Burgman 125 is one expensive horrible bike. I think its good when bought new for a couple of years, once it started to wear out it was very expensive for me to maintain. I would never buy this bike second hand or thats older than 3 years.
I think the spares are very expensive
Very expensive for me to get it repaired as it seems to take a couple hours to get to anywhere near the engine.
Starter motor change cost me about £250

bought my Suzuki Burgman 125 from a dealer with 400 miles on the clock. First of all in wet and cold conditions scooter stalls. Took it back to dealer who could not find anything wrong. Then exhaust broke at weld phoned dealer who got in touch with Suzuki who said to take the exhaust off so they could examine it that would mean a week delay for answer. Then the brake pads needed changing and now revs up slow and when i reach 30mph that is it - no more power! Had Honda before this and no such... (read more)

After the first service (600 miles) it has started to splutter to a halt on occasions and there doesn't seem to be a pattern to it.
The dealer said it was due to cheap supermarket fuel so i took it to a main petrol station and it still does it !! it seems to lose power after about 3 miles and stalls. when i restart it will only tick over and when i try to accelerate , it stalls again....after a few minutes it will eventually start again. darned annoying as my commute to work is 7 miles...

Overall the Suzuki Burgman is a good bike for learners of advanced riders it can keep up with all traffic on the roads and is an overall stylish modern bike. The good points for me is that the bike looks stylish on the road, it handles very well and is reliable. Another good pont is that the bike is vry cheap of fuel comsuption I only have to put 5 euro in the tank and it lasts me for one week but saying that im not going miles on the bike, except a full tank of petrol is only 8 or 9 euro. ...

My Suzuki Burgman was a great machine for nearly 4 years. Reliably got me to the station every working day during that time and around the country at the weekends - even started to use it to get to the airport. Carried all sorts under seat and on rack. Then suddenly developed starting problem. Despite 2 visits to the dealer to strip the carburettor + doses of Silkolene FST, it is a lottery in the morning and evening. Really frustrating and my trusty stead is now a liability as it can not be... (read more)

Having not riden a bike for over 20 years it was a big step to go back. I knew praying was worth it, I never dreamed I would be able to afford a Suzuki Burgman. All those prayers were worth it, It is a smooth ride, handles well and is very forgiving for a novice. As a busy mother it has lots of storage, something that was lacking in a number of other scooters. (read more)

I thought long and hard on what scooter to choose and it was a toss up between a T-max, Pantheon and the Burgman. I chose the Suzuki Burgman 125 cos I got such a good price, £500 cheaper than the T-max. Should have realised you get what you pay for. On the day of collection it wouldn't start, so the dealer put in a new battery. I drove home all of 25 miles and next morning, dead as a dodo! I'm well peeed off.
