Real good looking new logo on the 2020.
UF you did well in your assumption, Bagster Europe manufacture cold weather aprons, seats etc., yes this model comes with a Bagster 2 pieces cold weather apron, the section attached to the bike does not need to be removed, it can stay attached to the bike and the other section of the apron can simply be attached with a zipper, they have manufactured a 2 tone seat as well for this bike which they claim to be very comfortable. Did you notice the new switch for the heated mirrors. Basically this journalist is claiming this is a large touring bike he calls a mini Goldwing and that it is the best of any available on the market. He is a motorcyclist as well.I could not make out what was said but did any Burgman 650 owners notice any new differences? I saw the two tone seat and I'm assuming the new model comes with the body skirt for cold weather riding?
No their is no cruise mentioned and for me far from important, do not know about the front but rear lighting is LED, and as the owner of keyless automobiles which I despise I am happy that this bike still uses a key. I will have to view this video again once or twice.I'm not really sure what was going on in the video (that guy's English was TERRIBLE!), and I'm not intimately familiar with the 650, but I'm a little surprised at a few things if that is actually a 2020 model: no cruise control, uses a standard key instead of a fob, and appears that the lighting is all incandescent.
UF, he really loved the ride, handling, comfort, power, heated seat and grips, weather protection. Had very little negatives to say. Remember in Europe a great number of bikers own both motorcycles and scooters contrary to most here in North America where we own one or the other, as often when we reach a certain age or stage of our life we graduate from a motorcycle to a scooter such as a B650.
3 things he would have liked to see on this bike:
- traction control
- Radio/sound system
- Pod mounted button to switch dash readings to go from temp to time to fuel efficiency etc., etc.
I was left with the impression that this was available directly from Suzuki and not a dealer modification. Bagster being a European based company possibly a limited to Europe model as most of Asia really does not need cold weather equipment. This video was filmed during winter in France. In the next few days will check some European forums I am subscribed to find out more.So I would assume it is a regular model with some aftermarket upgrades. But that doesn't explain the new switch for the heated mirrors and the new name plate. A true mystery.
