First topic message reminder :

Recently purchased a SW and because I also own a Burgman 650, I was naturally curious about how they compare. Yesterday I took the Burgman to town as I had a few observations.

The Burgman is physically larger and chunkier in heft and weight. It feels like a big bike, like a Goldwing. That's not necessarily a bad thing and for touring, makes the Burgman exceptional. Having just come from riding Goldwings the last 5 years, the big Burgman is very comfortable for me and I personally like the weight of it. Everything is relative as I thought about flickability  for urban riding. The SW is way more flickable but comparing the Burgman to a Goldwing reminds me how flickable the Burgman is too.

Having owned a Reflex, I can't help but think the SW is a Reflex on steroids. I looked at my rpm yesterday on the Burgman and clocked 5200rpm at 85mph indicated. My SW, with brand new belt and sliders clocks in at 5800rpm at 85mph indicated. So the Burgman is running a lower rpm as it can be sensed in engine sound and lack of engine buzz compared to the SW. Yesterday I was comparing acceleration and roll on speed as the SW is more spirited unless one uses Power Mode on the Burgman. It drops the transmission to a lower gear ratio and runs a thousand rpm higher for snappier acceleration or engine braking.  I seldom use Power Mode though and most I know who ride Burgman's don't either. So, the SW is more sport like to me as to being more nimble and quick on it's feet. That kind of snap is available on the SW all the time whereas with the Burgman, one would have to be in Power Mode. Burgman Drive mode is bit poky for me.

Sold my B650 last night and deliver today. Made a 200% profit over original purchase.  The Executives bring big bucks even with the 97k it had. This is an end of an era after owning 2-650's and a 400. Now it's time to bond with my SW and enjoy it like I did the Burgman's.

WOW! 200% profit.
d
I interpret that to be your purchase price plus 200% ? Big Bucks !!!

So, someone actually paid you to ride your Burgy for the time you had it.

Could I have the guy's name? I have a couple of bridges he might be interested in.

LMAO

Dan, sounds like a good deal. You probably weren't thinking that when the transmission went out. cheers

John,  If an admin edits something we will put a note in the edit box or PM the person.  What was edited?  Thanks
Maybe let the other Mods and Admins know the rules. I got edited the other day without any acknowledgement of the editor. After i asked who edited me Dispevac made light of it publicly. I just thought it would be fair to let someone know that you've removed some of their post! Especially when it involves putting sentences together that I didn't write!! Sorry don't mean to hijack this thread, i was back reading about the Swing vs Burgman and JeffR's comment on editing caught my eye!

Yep, bought the 2007 Exec. for 1k and sold for 3k. I did replace the drive belt though but bought belt only for 400 as a friend helped me to replace and bought a rear tire for it, so I essentially doubled my money. Had it for nearly 2 years so I got my monies worth. The buyer was a first time rider so this will be a great bike for a newbie. Looking forward now to getting to know my SW.

I rode both the 385 and 650 B mans in 2004. I sold bikes  that year and took the time to lean about the Burgmans. I especially liked the 385 (400). Very nimble and low center gravity were appealing. The 650 was bulky and hard to push when parked. The Swing 600 is a great combo of the 2 and its a Honda!

At 6000 rpm my wing is running 77 mph. Mileage is about 54 mpg. I also had a goldwing and do miss the cruise control. Voce, I would love 15 inch wheels.

Below are the NADA prices for your 2007 Burgy bike with windshield. And you only paid $1K when you bought it?

Suggested List Price - $5,899.00
Average Price -------- $3,451.00
Low Price ------------- $2,625.00

Whoa, you did Good. Wink

It was owned by a friend who tried to sell it on the Maxi-Scoots forum for 2k with no luck. She bought another Executive so this one just sat in her garage until I offered her a grand. Not easy selling a scooter with nearly a 100k. A few months after buying the drive belt broke and she felt real bad about it but we both have a Burgman friend who had just done his belt and offered to do mine. If it hadn't been for that I would have sold for parts. Due to the mileage I doubted anyone would pay more than 3k. Bike ran as good as a low mileage newer bike and will make the buyer a great beginner bike as he's a new rider.
