One of the most popular maxi-scooters on the market, the 2008 Suzuki Burgman uses a parallel twin motor as opposed to the single cylinder engine found in most scooters making it the largest scooter engine offered in North America.
As a touring bike, the 2008 Suzuki averages about 40mpg and can reach speeds of up to 100mph. The Burgman also has an unusually large amount of storage under the seat with a compartment big enough to store two full-face helmets. In addition, there is a pair of cubbies in the dash for extra storage. When it comes to comfort, the 2008 Suzuki Burgman boasts a large comfortable seat with an easy-to-use lever-adjustable rider backrest and an additional passenger backrest. Cut-away floorboards also provide extra space for rider’s legs.
Not originally intended as a typical around-town scooter, the 2008 Suzuki Burgman is certainly suited to city use, however, its design makes it the optimal touring scooter. With a larger engine than most other scooters, a comfortable ride and generous storage space, the 2008 Suzuki Burgman is an excellent choice for riders looking for style and function on long-distance trips.
