Improvements over the previous model include a tad more fuel efficiency, new clutch with noticeably less drag for easier manual manoeuvring, new dash, economical riding alerts, new floating brake discs and lighter digital C-ABS system which reacts more quickly.
By default it's 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.
In full auto Drive mode gives you linear power delivery with a focus on efficiency and Power mode, as you might suspect, gives you full power at the expense of efficiency. You'll likely ignore these options though and leave it in standard drive mode.
The 15" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the rear 14" a 160/60. Elsewhere the Burgman continues to be all about storage with a 50 litre underseat space for two full face helmets (down slightly from the previous model). There are also three glove boxes with the lockable one containing the 12v power socket for your mobile.
Accessories include a range of top cases from 39 litres (£85) to 47 litres (£150) and a "garnish" for the headlights; basically a shiny bit to stick between them. There are also shiny master cylinder caps, side stand and a small bag to sit between your legs.
Outside the UK there is often a standard and Executive model available but we only see the top model here. The Executive package adds ABS, the advanced electric options and pillion backrest.
Colours: Black, white, grey
