howdy folks, i am researching scooters to have as a more fun and more efficient alternative to my truck, and being a large guy at 6'2" 330 im trying to find out what weight ratings the ones im interested in has.

For the life of me i can not find the GVWR for the burgman 200 (i was able to find the 400's easy) anywhere, if anyone has a manual and happens to know would they be so kind as to inform me? the closest dealer is many miles away so i would just like to know if its even worth going out there to check one out. Thanks!

I looked in my UH200 service manual and didn't see any such data.

I would guess it to be significantly less that the Burgman 400.

At 330 lbs & dressed in safety gear, you may weigh more then the UH200.
Not a good feeling, I expect.

well thank you both i really appreciate it, chances are i may take a trip to the deaership anyway as they apparently have a 2013 400 in inventory they may be willing to deal on that may be worth checking out. so i will just try to find out when i am there. I will try to post whatever i find back on here in case anyone else wants to know, again thank you both for the kindness.

These scoots with smaller engines are affected by load, in both performance and strain to the vehicle. At your deminsions, I can almost assure you you'll find the 400, if not the 650, more comfortable and to your liking. :)

I think that you will find that the UH200
is almost the same size as a 400 Burgman,
but with only half the engine to power it.

The thing with the 200 is it doesn't have a butt bumper, which can be removed altogether or repurposed as a back rest, giving a couple inches of extra leg room. At 6'2" and depending on your inseam, that could be beneficial. But ergos are a personal thing.

Good luck. Let us know how it turns out,
