Milage: 0 - 1000 Miles
Likes: Style, mileage, weight. handling
Dislikes:
Seating

Review:
Good power for a 230 pound rider, 82.1 mph on average Good "back roads" rider I am 6 feet tall and seat is for a shorter rider, the alternate seat for the European model would be better suited. I have owned the Bergman Executive in the past and that seat worked very well (flat seat for rider). Well built machine and hopefully will be reliable.”

Review:
Great little scooter. Suzuki though can add some minor features that would make the 200, the Scooter to desire. But till than this scooter is well worth it. I was a Honda guy, my first Honda I was 4 and it had training wheels. I love the Suzuki.”

2014 SUZUKI BURGMAN 200
Milage: 0 - 1000 Miles
Likes: Handles well in the mountains. Ok on freeway, but not a cruiser. Getting 75 mpg.
Dislikes:
Seat is a bit harsh on bumps. Felt good in showroom but not on street. Applying foam modifications that help immensely.

Review:
Great bike, and met my expectations. Seat mods should eventually create a comfortable ride. Hope parts will offer a seat add on sometime.


2014 SUZUKI BURGMAN 200
Milage: 1000 - 5000 Miles
Likes: Fun to ride, 80+mpg, great on mountain roads and adequate on freeway
Dislikes:
Seat needs improvement.

Review:
Five foot eleven / 185 lbs. / 68yrs. / former Norton owner / male. Love the ride but had to add cushioning to make bumps bearable. The 200 is adequate for all my needs but would have gone bigger if I was in a different situation, only because "bigger is always better". Storage under seat is a great plus, and love the hand signs from other riders who think I'm on a "real" bike.”

Likes: Everything so far. I'm 5 ft 6 inch about 170 cruises at 55 no problem, takes bumps great, lots of pickup
Dislikes:
None so far

Review:
I like this smaller scooter. At around 350 pounds, it handles very well. I commute 12 miles one way to work country road. It does 55 mph no problems. I’m still breaking it in at 400 miles. The seat was an issue but after getting used to it, it’s not a problem expect maybe on a long ride. I just got to adjust and move around.

High winds move the scooter. It takes a little getting use to that. So far I love this Burgman. I'm 62 and still love riding everything. Snowmobiles, horses.....whatever with or without a motor. I got it for 1000 below MSRP due to it being a 2014. I would recommend although not for a real tall guy. Thanks!”

Review:
In & from Australia, the scooter is just great. At 5'7" or 175cm I found the riding position cramped. Whilst I carefully modified the under seat structure and losing some helmet space, I had a professional upholsterer modify the foam but still able to use the original seat cover. This made a 100% improvement with at least another 4 inches of legroom, perfect. To that I advise replacing the standard plug with one of your own Magnum Tuning(US) "Brisk" plugs. After that, enjoy your great scooter. Mine has reached 135 kilometres and hour and at 100 kilometres an hour gets 36.8 kilometres per litre. You work it out for miles etc but it's extremely economical.

I think it is a genuine freeway-highway ride. Cruising depends on your interpretation of the word but the scoot will cruise at 110ks plus happily and is ultra smooth and very stable doing it unless on bumpy "back roads"? Maybe there's a difference living in other countries but our back roads in Australia are more likened to trail bikes which are better for dodging Kangaroos and other wildlife. I can't fault the scooter albeit we didn't get the ABS model and whilst the metallic grey does look great, it's an unsafe and "sorry I didn't see you" colour for scooters and motorcycles. Owned 2
AN400 Burgmans and whilst they too are great, just a bit heavier and bulky for this old codger (64) to handle.”

Milage: 1000 - 5000 Miles
Likes: Lots of space, can handle weight,easy to operate, stable, In 3 months put almost 2500 miles on it daily commuter use.
Dislikes:
Not a lick of good in sandy soil....but i live in the desert.

Review:
Can't say enough good things. Had one lil boo boo. Left the keys in ignition but didn't know it needed the kill switch off. Drained the battery, but all that was my ignorance. The Jeep then died (needs alternator) so using the scooter for regular trips to work in town (approx 15 miles). Taking son to karate, (another 15) then home again. Works out to about 60 miles a day (no side trips). I was totally impressed today two passengers, 35 lbs of animal feed and was still able to hit 75 mph on highway. Now if i could only figure out a trailer for it...”

Dislikes:
Has the expected limitations of a 200cc motor

Review:
I bought my 2014 with zero miles in 2016, and have put 2,500 miles on it so far. This is the first bike I have ever owned or ridden. I use it to commute to work through Houston, TX traffic, with the occasional longer ride out for fun. After about 2,200 miles in, my MPG kicked up a mile or two, so now I am averaging around 70mpg in the city, which goes up on longer cruises. The seat was very stiff at first, and is only now softening up. The bike has great pickup from a dead stop: on a flat road with no wind it will accelerate from 0 to 30 in about 6 seconds. However, with full throttle it goes from 0 to 60 in about 15 seconds. On the highway it loves to hang out around 65mph and sip gas, but can go up to 80mph before entering the red zone on the tachometer, with noticeable declines in fuel efficiency. It also has slow high speed acceleration; it takes 12-15 seconds to go from 60mph to 85mph on a flat road with no wind. So you really have to check your six and not zip around cars on the freeway, because you may not be able to accelerate fast enough.

The bike accepts a lean angle up to roughly 30 degrees when counter steering, and does so easily even at 25mph. It does not maintain traction well on any kind of gravelly road, at all, even for a moment. The tires feel slippery on wet roads so I have not tried to lean anywhere near this far after a rain. Emergency maneuvering (like when someone cuts you off or you suddenly see a pothole) is a little sluggish. It doesn't respond as quickly as I would like, and this is accentuated at higher speeds. The brakes work very well. I can stop completely from 60mph in about 10 seconds.

The side mirrors never stay put, and will even move if riding into a gust at highway speeds. The engine is quiet. Its automatic transmission makes it very easy to ride, and the ABS system increases stopping safety. The shocks have 5 settings, starting at the 4th most relaxed. This provides a decent ride, although potholes are not easily glossed over. Definitely should tighten the suspension when riding with a passenger, which I have not yet done beyond trips around a parking lot.

This is a fun and easy to learn intro for anyone wanting to start riding. All my motorcycle friends told me I would outgrow it after six months, and I see what they mean. I wouldn't use it for much beyond what I am currently doing, and if I ever went cruising around the country I would want a 650cc bike, for sure.”

Review:
I have owned the 400 and 650 and now have a 200cc Burgman. I live about 7 miles from the main part of town,and there are 3 stop lights between. The highest speed limit is 55 mph and drops to 45 then 35. I can keep up with traffic, pass some and park about anywhere in the uptown area. The 200 holds the road good even in a good cross wind,my 200 lbs adds to the stability. I can get about 6 of the plastic grocery bags of food in the under seat storage. I ride single most of the time. I average 60 mpg, and when gas neared $5 a gallon several people asked me about my ride.

I have taken the 200 on several 55 to 80 mile rides and it does just fine.The 650 was good for long trips,but harder to hoss around. The 400 was a nice ride for mid to longer rides, but for my riding now the 200 is my pick. I have owned several motorcycles since 1966,including Honda,Suzuki, and 4 Harleys, the last being the Electra Glide Limited, which I just sold as I don't take long road trips anymore as I am nearing 70 years of age.

I have over 4000 miles on this scooter. I have changed the oil and filter more frequently than the owners manual suggest,as I do it myself. I am very happy with the 200 for my needs at this point in my life.”
