Burgman Number 7

Post by Normsthename »

I am part Exing my Yamaha Xmax 300 for a new Suzuki Burgman 400.
I know a thing or two about Burgmans because this one will be number 7 😁
First Burgman I had was a 400 in 2002 and to date I've owned 3 x 400's and 3 x 650's
I love the Xmax 300, the engine is amazing for performance and economy, but I just can't stretch my legs out like on the Burgman.
I collect the new steed on Thursday 😊

Be interesting how the two compare once you have had time to get used to the new scoot.

Enjoy the new Burger. Yes we’d like a “compare and contrast” from someone who’s had the older style and knows the nitty gritty’s. I was tempted by a new model but after five years of owning mine from new I just can’t see a reason yet to swap. icon_thumbs_up.gif

I think Yamaha are missing a trick not making a blue core 300 proper scooter but with a proper swinging arm too.

I know I twitter on about it a lot but I`m sure a decent roomey scooter with really good and preper suspension and an encased rear chain or belt would be a really good seller.

Hope you enjoy the new Burgman, they are nice.

I'd like to see it with a 350cc motor too.

Picked up the New Burgman 400 this morning.
On my way to the shop it was p*ssing down, but once I arrived it stopped.
Did the swap over and I was on my way.
The roads were still wet and my new bike was going to get dirty 😢
First impression after stepping off of the Xmax 300 onto the Burgman was the comfortable riding position with legroom available.
The seat also felt really soft compared to the Xmax, I know the material that they used on the Xmax 300 was very prone to getting stained with water marks.
One thing I will not miss on the Xmax 300 is the rubbish selector switch.
I don't mind the keyless part, but the switch was really difficult to use. It really needs a redesign.
There is not much difference in performance, the Burgman has approx. 4 hp extra but has to lug an extra 36 kg.
I did about 35 miles trying to dodge the local showers before I admitted defeat and headed home.
The Bike was not too dirty and a quite wipe over with Autoglym Fast Glass and it looked OK.
I recently bought an electric Spray gun and I am going to ACF50 the scooter when it will get a good clean beforehand.
Very pleased with the Burgman, after owning several in the past its like putting your favourite slippers on 😂

I could do with some new slippers,
What is the clutch pick up like on the new B400. My K9 model did judder a fair bit. Is the storage space much less on the slimmer arse one? Its a great scooter, enjoy.
