Clos­est ri­val

The big Burgman is the sem­i­nal maxi-scooter, and still has the edge over the AK550 in terms of power and torque, but only just. Its 638cc two-cylin­der, liq­uid­cooled, DOHC en­gine pro­duces 54.3bhp (40.5kW) @ 7000rpm and 45.7lb-ft (62Nm) @

5000rpm. But it’s also heavy at 277kg (wet) and pricier than the Kymco. Given that the Burgman 400 got up­dated last year and the big 650 has been un­changed for a while, there might be an up­date com­ing from Suzuki soon.
