Default 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.

theyre old and heavy

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