Agreed, if you owned a lemon, and are willing, we would all benefit from the knowledge. That is why BUSA rocks.
Everything else is just nagging, and tagging. Doesn't matter if it is Harley, Kymco, BMW, AMC, many members on here ride and enjoy all of these and more, with great success. But we would like to know first hand experiences that could help ward off problems down the road.
I have a BMW C650GT. Right now I have 1,350 miles on it. Once I get a few more miles and an opportunity to take it on a run instead of commuting I will be writing a full review unless the slamming continues. Then it just will not be worth the time and effort to do it.
I am always amazed by the ragging and crap delt out to anybody that rides anything else than what is the "right" bike...depending on what forum you are on.
I ride and work on Vintage Vespas, 6 of them right now, have two Buddy 125s one I modified to 161, Had 37K on an 07 Burg Ex. I get crap from everybody, but it is amazing that the majority of people slinging have no clue as to how vehicle production has...and stilll does actually work.
The Kymco/BMW tag line is frankly getting old and appears to be used by those unfamiliar and ignorant in regards to Kymco, BMW, Honda, PGO, Piaggio, Kawasaki or Suzuki production history.
Kymco manufactured engines and complete small bikes under license for Honda for 30 years...must be time to slam Honda quality
This is not the first collaboration BMW has had with Kymco, In early 2008, KYMCO was chosen by BMW to supply the engines for their G450 X Enduro, a kick butt trail bike, Kymco also produced BMWs 2007 F650GS motors
The 2009 and 2010 G-series 650 cc engine parts were manufactured by Rotax in Austria
Kymco also has a production relationship with Kawasaki
In 1994, Suzuki partnered with Nanjing Jincheng Machinery to create a Chinese motorcycle manufacturer and exporter called Jincheng Suzuki...yeah Suzuki's made by "those people"...I guess that means that every Suzuki is crap
Suzuki has 35 main production facilities in 23 countries...so..where was your Burgman actually made? Pakistan perhaps? Well...yeah...there is a good possibility that some parts were made there
The point is that almost all bikes are made up of parts from all over the world...thats the way it has been and still is...get over it.
Oh yeah...my Ex had a major
failure at 24K...I still loved that scoot!
