been a while since here last , had a burgman 650 after my forza , got knocked off it. so bought an NC750x dct . an love it , apart from the seat, hard as rock o_O . fitted shad seat . better but not by enough , so considering coming back to the forza 8) or maybe a burger 400. the forza has it's benefits of longer service intervals. an much cheaper to purchase as well .the scooters do have better seats . lol although girlfriend not as keen . say's there harder to get on an off , she is 5ft tall so the wider seat makes it harder to climb on, but agree's seats are more comfy...lol

Service interval on the new model Burgman 400 should be longer.
My Suzuki is 7500 mile intervals.

Our Burgman 400 was not that hard for the passenger to get on and off of, but in my case I had the bike on its center stand when she climbed on, which gave her a stable platform. Then I climbed on and had to rock the bike forward to get it off of the stand. Not easy. I had to have the bike running before I rocked it, but hold the brake level tight. We tried her climbing on with it on the side stand but that was impossible for us. When I had a motorcycle it was much easier to handle a passenger, but the passenger was not as comfortable as they would be on a scooter. Getting on and off is much easier for passengers on little scooters than on the bigger scooters. Still, I would have loved to have been able to keep my Burgman because it was so comfortable and powerful. However, it was too big for just around town riding like we do now...but it was a lovely bike.
