BURGMAN 400 THE FACTS 34bhp (est) 220kg (est) Seat height 750mm

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The Burgman 400 has been a sta­ple of Suzuki’s scooter diet since 1998, and the fact so lit­tle seems to have changed in that time is tes­ta­ment to how right they got it in the first place.

For 2017, the ‘Burg­er­van’ has gone on a diet, and now sports sleeker body­work and LED light­ing all round. The seat is a full 20mm deeper and the foot­boards are now sculpted with cut­aways to al­low the rider to get feet to floor more com­fort­ably.

The en­gine has been given a tickle for Euro4 and to de­liver more midrange, while there’s a new air­box for im­proved torque char­ac­ter, and an Irid­ium spark­plug to give a cleaner and harder burn at ig­ni­tion.

Claimed im­prove­ments in chas­sis rigid­ity should trans­late into a slightly more sure-footed han­dling pack­age (sus­pen­sion is un­changed). The 14in front rim has been ditched in favour of a 15in item for im­proved sta­bil­ity and man­ners on pot­hole-in­fested streets.

The Burgman 400 is now sleeker with more midrange
