When it comes to day to day comuting and and even some weekend fun, this bike delivers. Lets start with the pluses. First and for most, this bike is very comfortable. The seat is broad and cushy, the reach to the handlebars is not far and there is plenty of room on the floor boards for leg movement to help with longer trips. The adjustable backrest helps out too. Wind protection is great for the most part. Second, the power from its 400cc single is quite suprising. Third, handling is superb for such an upright riding bike and the factory tires grip very well. I would almost say that it flicks back and forth through the twisties quite well but you find the centerstand pretty soon when pushing the bike's limits. Forth, the storage is freakin awesome. The bat cave that is under the seat will easily hold 2 full face helmets or 40$ worth of well placed groceries and the dash storage is very handy for many things as well. I can fit a 1 liter bottle of soda in the glove box it is so deep. Plus there is a 12v power outlet to charge your cell or anything else inside there too. The cons, The power is good but the CVT lacks enough top end to cruise long distance in my opinion. At an indicated 75 MPH the tach reads 7200 RPM and the redline is at 8500. Wind buffeting from the stylish shaped windshield requires the wearing of a helmet at minimum to save my eardrums from jumping out of my head. This bike is an excellent daily driver and errand runner for which I use it every day. It won't keep up with too many bikes but that's not what it was built for. This would make an excellent starter bike for many people to get used to riding.

I have had my scooter a little over a year now. It is the best thing I have ridden. I rode motorcycles in the past. I have done some 300-mile day rides on it. I do most of my grocery shopping on it. The only time I don't ride is when it rains or gets down in the 30's temperature wise. The only negative thing is the windshield. I added a Laminar Lip, which really cut down on the buffeting. I will probably ride it until it won't go anymore.

I'm incredibly impressed with this little 400cc Scooter. It continues to surprise me in almost every 2 wheeled manner. From comfort to control to acceleration, it seems to have very few faults. Once accustomed to the riding position, I find it's quite stable in the twisting mountain roads as well as the expressway. I've never felt anything but confident in any given situation. Acceleration although not exactly stellar does make you realize just how little HP you need to remain safe and still be faster than most automobiles amongst us. Although slow by motorcycle standards, it would be unfair to compare. After all you wouldn't compare a Prius to a Mustang GT? Accelerating into traffic is never a worry. Overall, the comfort is great for a 4 hour stretch, then you start to feel the burn, but this thing is so competent it does leave you wishing for more. I owned a 650 Burgman which is the Goldwing equivalent in the scooter world and I mean that in every comparable sense. It is large, heavy, smooth, and comfortable. It took me and my girl from Boston to Asheville NC and back without a complaint, with the exception of its weight and the barely 50 mpg it returned giving a cruising range of 180 miles tops. The 400, at 60-65 mpg, gives close to the same comfort and equal performance solo as the 600 was 2up - I happily traded down as they say. I feel I have lost only weight in the transaction. It is a definite large leap forward from the Honda 250cc Reflex that started this whole Hi-way capable scooter infatuation I'm experiencing. As I said in the beginning, it is a near perfect scooter. A perfect 5 star Scooter has yet to be built but I personally feel Suzuki is on the right track.

Just got this vehicle 2 weeks ago. For eight months I have been looking at cycles to ride again. For me it has been 30 years since I've had a bike. I lost my left leg 2 years ago due to an accident which happened 23 years ago. I went to several dealers and tried out every bike I could find with a heal/toe shifter, but found that was just about impossible for me to operate and all the dealers agreed. I did my research on the Honda SilverWing, Yamaha Majesty, and the Burgman 400. For price, style, and reliability I chose the Burgman 400. Well I love it. I joined the American Legion Riders and I'm able to keep up with the big boys. Everyone likes the looks and how it handles and one member is now thinking about getting one for his wife. I only have 350 miles on it but love the way it handles and have to be careful on speed, was doing 82 mph the other day without realizing it. So far I've been averaging about 62 miles per gal. of gas and know when I get it broken in and do more trips and less around town I should get even better mileage. Being 59 years old, out of shape and having had a real hard time getting on and off a large cycle, this is just perfect for me. The Burgman 400 has more than enough power and speed for me. If you feel you want even more power you could step up to the Burgman 650, but personally, could not see spending the extra money for what would have been an overkill for me. About the only downside for me is the windshield, it is small and just doesn't quite do the job, but all the scooters I looked at seem to have the same problem. For a really fun time I recommend this scooter for anyone, oh, and it has a lot of storage under the seat as well.

I have a 2006 Burgman 400. I was leaning toward purchasing a Suzuki Motorcycle, but I thought the Burgman would be a better choice for the area I live in and the type of riding I would be doing. I am very happy with my decision. It rides and handles well, gets good gas mileage (avg 55-60mpg), and has enough power to get you out of tight situations. I have had it up to 70 mph, but I don't think I would be comfortable taking it on the Interstate. I have no problem riding in highway traffic at speeds up to 55 mph. It is an excellent choice for someone who wants good transportation and who doesn't need the speed or power of a motorcycle. My only complaint is that I would like to be able to stretch my legs out a little further than the scooter design/set up allows.

According to Suzuki, the 2007 Burgman 400 has a lot of changes from earlier models. I can vouch that it has amazing performance and fuel economy at the same time. I have had it up to 95 mph and I'm sure it would do more because I didn't hold it there but for a few seconds. I check the fuel mileage every time I fill up and I have averaged over 65 mpg. One time during the break-in period I went 207 miles on only 2.85 gallons. That is an amazing 72 mpg. I have only one complaint. The windshield is not as good as they claim. Their advertising claims it is larger and provides a smooth flow of air around the rider. There is quite a bit of wind buffeting around my head and shoulders at highway speeds. I would like to get a taller and wider windshield, but I haven't found any available yet. Overall, I love it. The larger wheels and tires give good stability on the highway even at speeds in excess of 80 mph.
