2012 Suzuki Burgman 650 Executive

The words ’scooter’ and ’executive’ aren’t usually associated with one another, but in the case of the Suzuki Burgman 650 Executive , certain exemptions have to be made.

Relative to its market, the Burgman 650 Executive rolls like a boss and comes packed with plenty of up-standard features that other scooters only dream of having. From the choice between a Pearl Moon Stone Gray or Pear Mirage White paint finish all the way to its enormous proportions, the Burgman 650 Executive has definitely earned that ’Executive’ name.

Much more than it aerodynamic and ergonomic design, the Burgman 650 Executive also packs an impressive powertrain in the form of a powerful, liquid-cooled, 638cc, DOHC, 8-valve, twin-cylinder engine that features Suzuki’s fuel-injection system and vibration-reducing dual counter balancer shafts to provide smooth and powerful acceleration befitting its stature as one of the most polished scooters on the market. Although it looks the part of the scooter, the Burgman 650 Executive feels more like a bike that knows its business all the way around.

This posh scooter also comes with a smooth, responsive chassis and suspension set-up featuring a tubular frame and aluminum-alloy swingarm that allows the engine to be mounted in a forward position for excellent balance and agility. Telescopic front forks with 41mm inner tubes provide 4.3" of wheel travel for sport performance and a comfortable ride while an aluminum swingarm-style rear suspension system features twin preload-adjustable shock absorbers offering 3.9" of travel.

Any which way you look at it, the Suzuki Burgam 650 Executive is about as awesome a scooter as you can find anywhere. It’s striking combination of looks, handling, and performance makes it a must-have for all riders out there.

I have owned one for 8 months and 3,000 miles. It rides comfortably. It requires a gentle yet firm touch as it is extremely responsive. The engine braking is pronounced which requires time to adjust to. Once you achieve the required touch, it does everything asked, quickly, gracefully, without complaint. It this regard, it may be too good as after awhile, the bike seems a little boring. You’ll need to get your enjoyment from the ride itself. This is not a bike for a beginner. The response may scare the beginner that is if they manage to hold on. For an experienced rider, it rides very well.

Looks similar with 2012 Suzuki Burgman 400 ABS, and that one is way cooler on Burgman 650. Haha. Anyway, it has a good engine specification and good that this has a capacity of 638cc. It looks good on white.
