Would anyone that has both bikes give me their opinion on the lighting. I have the Majesty and ride alot at night and the lights are excellent. I might be getting a burg and want to know how it compares. Thank you.
IMO the Burgman lights are a bit better - but its been a while since I've rode either one - weather being what it is around here. Both are excellent.
I think the 'upgrade' will please you. It certainly did me.
I agree. I have an '05 Maj and a '07 Burgie and both are excellent. I might favor the Majesty by a hair, but not enough not to make a difference and the Burgie is better in all respects but fuel mileage.
If illumination is a big concern, you might want to avoid the "one eyed Burgmans". They have one headlight as low beam and the other as the high beam (as its normally off, hence the term "one-eyed"). The '07 Burgman 400 was one-eyed, but they switched to a traditional two-eyed (both headlights have high and low beams) in '08 and on. I'm not sure about the pre-'07 400s and I think all 650s were two-eyed.
However, I've never had a problem with my one-eyed bike, but I don't do a lot of night-time riding. Good luck. The burg is a great bike.
