ok, here is some good info from the Yahoo burgman group.
>Just came back from the 2004 Amsterdam
>MotoRai and I can clear up some things
>especially about the 2005 Burgman 650.
>Pics and basic info here:
>Other pics I made during the MotoRai
>(less scoot content, more general) here:
>- Yes, the 2005 Suzuki Burgman 650 DOES
>have an electrically adjustable screen, this
>is also confirmed in the 2005 Suzuki
>brochure I have here.
>- Yes, the button as how you saw it in
>the German pics and as how you'll see
>it in my pics is how it will be on the
>- The screen slides up and down, parallel
>to the fairing. So not going forward and
>steeper like on the RT/LT/FJR, it just
>slides. The screen on the show was fixed
>(they couldn't operate anything since all
>the bikes are battery-less) in the highest
>position. The picture in the brochure I
>have shows the screen in the lowest setting,
>which is with the bottom of the matt-black
>screen trim above the air intake. Estimating
>by the pics I think the screen can move up/
>down about 20 centimeters. Also see
>brochure pics in the album to compare.
>- The 2005 Burgman 650 now also has, next
>to the magnetic coded slider, an electronic
>immobilizer (like on Silverwing and Yamaha)
>and (like model before I believe) a catalytic
>converter, placed (like Tmax) in the muffler.
>- In 2005 the "standard" Burgman 650 is no
>longer available, the "executive" version is
>now the only version available (in Holland
>at least), which comes with the screen and
>ABS in the colors silver and dark blue, both
>with the white blinkers and chrome **** on
>the handlebars and on the muffler (which has
>the cat converter built in). Looking at the
>USA site it appears they will only have the
>standard available without the ABS and
>without the electrically adjustable screen
>(which looks different in the EU brochure,
>having two pointy things on the screen trim).
>Funny enough (like with the TMAX/A) there
>are still 2 dry weights mentioned in the spec,
>238kgs and 244kgs.
>- It also has (I don't know if that was
>installed before) an anti-splash deflector
>below the footboard to prevent road-****
>from being blown up thru the "holes" in
>- Price in Holland will be ˆ10690 Euros.
>About the 2005 Tmax:
>- The show had a suprising number of Tmax's
>this year, 3 to be exact. All 3 in different colors,
>a blue one, silver one and red one. These colors
>plus a black one (not on the show) are also shown
>on the website, strangly enough though the
>brochure and pricelist state that only the silver
>and black one are available. I wonder if there were
>that many there because this year the Tmax's were
>sold out in Holland (I never see them anyway...).
>There was only 1 Burgman 650 on the show though
>(eventhough the Suzuki girl there said she got an
>enormous amount of questions about it).
>- ABS seems now standard (at least in Holland) on
>the Tmax and the bike is now called TMAX/A
>(in fact the code XP500 is no-where to be found
>anymore in the brochure). The ABS sensors are
>nicely integrated and visible in the pics. I'm not
>sure the non-ABS version is also available. There
>is only pricing info for the TMAX/A, but the technical
>specifications for the TMAX/A state that the weight
>is 205kgs, but 210kgs for the A (so 2 weights).
>- Price (standard now with ABS) in Holland is
>now ˆ9499 Euros, which is 500 euros more than
>the 2004 price (which in my opinion is not that
>much for having ABS, eventhough the bike is
>still expensive, and adding only 5kgs).
