2014 Suzuki Burgman 650
We recently reviewed the Burgman 650 and came away chuffed with its surprising user friendliness and all-round ability. The Burgman is renowned for its highway ability but we actually found the big Maxi to be commuter friendly.
The feature list is as long as your arm with an injected 638 cc twin cylinder engine and a massive 50 litres of underseat storage. Choice of 3 drive modes - drive, power or a manual mode that allows you to thumb through six pre-set speeds. Brakes feature ABS and there is even an electric screen and powered mirrors that both retract with a flick of a switch.
For 2014 the price of the Burgman 650 remains unchanged with a recommended retail price of $13,590 + dealer and government charges.

Suzuki Australia Press Release
Suzuki Australia is pleased to announce the arrival of the latest version of its automatic touring cycle masterpiece - the 2014 Burgman 650.
The Burgman 650 maintains the all-new styling, reduced weight and improved fuel economy it inherited in 2013, while maintaining its user-friendly power.
"The Burgman 650 continues to upgrade all riders to business class with a raft of user friendly technologies designed to ensure maximum comfort and performance", said Suzuki Australia Motorcycles National Marketing Manager Lewis Croft.
From every angle, the Burgman 650 displays smart technology and superior quality with sharply styled multi-reflector headlights, dual multi-reflector tail lights and a triangle section muffler ensuring a sleek look while also satisfying the most stringent emissions regulations.
An expansive, thickly padded seat allows plenty of space for two people to sit comfortably for long stretches and includes an easily adjustable rider backrest, while electronically-controlled height adjustable windscreen ensures maximum comfort for all riders.
The Burgman 650 boasts a surfeit of storage spaces, including a 50-litre under-seat storage compartment, enough for two standard size full-face helmets, plus three front compartments for smaller items, one containing 12v DC accessory outlet, and an additional cable lock allowing the rider to secure a helmet outside the compartment.
The Burgman 650 is powered by a 638cc, twin-cylinder, computerised fuel-injected powerplant delivering exceptionally smooth performance, while the O2 feedback system with catalyser boosts fuel efficiency and minimises emissions.
The automatic transmission delivers excellent control and is adjustable by a push of a button on the handlebar, allowing riders to choose between three different modes - two fully automatic (Drive and Power) and Manual.
The Drive mode increases efficiency at normal road speeds and provides smooth, linear, power delivery for easy riding, the Power mode delivers more punch for spirited riders and the manual mode allows the rider complete control via six pre-set gear ratios.
The easy-to-read instrument panel keeps the rider fully informed and features the Eco Drive Indicator to encourage optimum fuel efficiency, with a light appearing when the Burgman 650 is operated in a fuel-efficient manner.
The Antilock Braking System (ABS) helps maximise control by preventing the wheels from locking during excessive braking.
For increased security, the Burgman 650 is equipped with a Suzuki Advanced Immobiliser System (SAIS), and also a magnetic cover over the ignition switch which only opens with the correctly coded key.
The Burgman 650 is the king of comfort, combining a truly luxurious ride with easy to read and operate controls, fantastic wind protection and with exceptional smooth performance to match. Whether it’s going down to the local shops or touring across the country, you can do it in comfort and style aboard the Burgman.
Available in stylish new colour; Metallic Grey, the 2014 Burgman 650 is on sale now with a recommended price of $13,590*.
