There are plenty of controls. The following are found on the Executive model. On the left handlebar, several multicolored buttons control eight separate functions. Three deal with the continuously variable automatic transmission: gray switches between power or drive automatic modes, yellow switches between automatic and manual shift, and orange is used to choose from six CVT ratios while using manual shift. That may seem complex for a scooter. Other buttons control high and low beam, headlight flasher, turn signals, and the horn. An unusual touch is a button that will electronically retract the mirrors. Maybe that is for extra tight traffic-sneaking maneuvers. The 2011 Suzuki Burgman features anti-lock brakes, which are unusual in this class of two-wheelers, and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), which is not so unusual. The Suzuki CVT is a technically advanced, electronically controlled setup. Instantaneous throttle response comes from the fuel injection system and the power of the liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder engine. The seats are well padded and substantial, with an illuminated under-seat compartment. The other storage compartments have lids. The capacity for cargo – 16 gallons – is not normal scooter territory. The windshield is adjustable. The rear passenger seat rides significantly higher than the operator's position, for a good view. Neither the seats nor the backrest are adjustable, with the exception of lumbar adjustment.
