Burgman 400

I am considering buying a used ,lowish mileage, one (anything from 2005 to 2008 ) for daily commuting . N7/M50.

Any opinions on these scooters ?

Would it be worth paying extra to have the later ABS model ?

Father had a 650 one, simple to drive but heavy yoke and he had no issues with that model. Didn't do much mileage though.

Re: Burgman 400

theyre old and heavy

buy yourself one of the early forza 300 honda's, be far more reliable and up to date and balanced.
