Improvements over the previous model include a tad more fuel efficiency, new clutch with less drag for easier manual manoeuvring, new dash, economical riding alert, new floating brake discs and lighter digital C-ABS system which reacts more quickly.
By default it acts like a standard automatic scooter gearbox but you can put it in a 6 speed semi-auto mode and make use of the gear position indicator on the dash by using the thumb gear selector. This isn't usually possible with a standard CVT gearbox but the Burgman is unique in that it electronically varies the width of the drive belt with each "gear" and this is what the buttons control. You can read all about it over here.
The full auto Drive mode gives you linear power delivery with a focus on efficiency. Power mode gives you full power at the expense of efficiency. You'll likely ignore these options though and leave it in standard drive mode.
The Burgman continues to be all about storage with a huge 50 litre underseat space for two full face helmets and there are also three glove boxes with the lockable one containing the 12V power socket for your mobile.
The 15" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the rear 14" a 160/60.
Accessories include the 39 / 47 litre top cases, a "garnish" for the headlights, shiny master cylinder caps, side stand and a small bag to sit between your legs.
