Thanks for info. In the past few years Suzuki has priced their Canadian and American models very closely, so it's quite likely the USA version will come in at $4899 or $4999. That's reasonable considering standard ABS and quite a few nice features.

Compared to a Honda Forza ABS, it's $1000 less in exchange for about 80cc.

The SYM RV200 looks like a bargain ($4999 vs. $3699) compared to the Burgman 200. However, it's got 30cc less, no ABS and surely not at the same level of features or refinement. It's still a nice deal comparatively but not a blow out.

On the other hand, consider the RV200 vs Honda's PCX150.

The PCX150 is cheaper ($3450 vs $3700), while offering fuel injection, a similar top speed, better fuel milage and a design that is both more refined and feature filled. Even with it's extra 20cc, the RV200 isn't faster because it lacks F.I., has lower compression and is much heavier (344lbs vs. 286lbs).

Well you guys do know that I wouldn't even think about spending those kinds of dollars on a 150 or 200. If I was going to chase fuel injected and water cooled this is available to me.

As you know I believe in China scoots. Dwell on this. A Suzuki GW 250 will be selling for $3995. It will be a pretty hard sell to convince me that a Burgman 200 is more practical.

You're right - in terms of sheer practicality the Suzuki or that Chinese scooter win.

One downside with that Chinese machine seems to be resale value. Getting a low price is great if you plan on keeping it for a long time, but if you sell when a machine is a few years old then it's really tough to get much for a Chinese scooter that no one recognizes.

I just saw this

Suzuki also announced the pricing for its new for 2014 scooter model, the Burgman 200, which will retail for $4999 and be available in April.

I understand the issue of resale value-for other people. I buy things to use until they're dead. Even at that, how much will a used scooter with over 20,000 miles be worth anyway? I tried to sell my 150cc briefly for $650, about half it's original price without a nibble. People probably figure a China scoot with 7,300 miles is shot to begin with no matter how well it runs.

Two years ago I had to let my 2000 Kawasaki W650 go for $2600 to the only buyer who came forth after listing it on Craigslist for three months. Original price-$6600. Of course with 22,000 miles it was used up in other people's minds.

When you add prep, freight, sales tax and other costs to that 200 Burgy it's almost $6000. Not practical to me, resale value be darned.

I just bought a brand new white 2014 Suzuki Burgman 200 last week. I previously had a 2004 Burgman 400, but decided I didn't need all the power and fell in love with this new model. Just wondering if very many other people have taken the plunge. So far I am completely in love with it! It has ABS brakes, is very peppy and keeps up with traffic perfectly. Still heavy enough for the strong winds around here and I have put on over 100k already.
My insurance company assures me I am completely insured with them and I could buy, license and ride, but they are still researching what my payment will be because they don't have the information yet because it is so new to Canada.

I bought a new leftover 2014 Burgman 200 in December of 2015. Once it warmed up to decent riding weather here in Ohio I started riding it to work which is 75 miles round trip each day. I mainly take back country roads but do get it out on the freeway here and there. I've had mine up to 80 Mph for short bursts. For the most part I take it easy and stay around 55 mph to and from work and average 84 mpg .
So far in my 1st season I've put almost 4,000 miles. Love it!!! Wish I had it a year sooner.
