Only the Exc ones have the power windshield & ABS brakes. Those came out in 06 & newer in the USA.

The 09 Exec has power mirrors. Power mirrors does not mean the mirrors are adjustable, it just means that the mirrors fold in and out.

Yea I forgot about the power mirrors. Only time they have been folded in is when the sales person showed me. Not something I use. Haven't had to use the ABS yet either & hope I never do. Power windshield is nice.

Could anyone tell me if the 09 650 have a power shield on them? :eek:
As others have posted...

FWIW, Just to clarify and clear any confusion. There are two versions of the Burgman 650. One is a standard model which can look almost the same as the second model, the Executive, at first glance. When one knows what to look for it is pretty easy to determine if the Burgman 650 in front of you is a standard or an executive model.

In a nutshell, the executive model has powered mirrors activated by a blue switch on the LHS handlebar switch-block, wind-shield that can be electronically raised and lowered activated by a left-right slider switch on the RHS handlebar switch-block (what you refer to as the "power shield"), ABS denoted by the ABS wheel ring on the RHS of the disc rotor on the front wheel and same on the LHS on the rear wheel, and often a pillion backrest. Careful though, sometimes a standard model might have had a pillion backrest added. Some executive models in some global markets come with a couple of factory added extras, such as heated seat and heated grips - but this does not apply in every country.
Usually the executive model has the word "Executive" underneath the word "Burgman 650" located below the pillion grab rails.

LHS = left hand side
RHS = right hand side

:study:

Being Deployed sucks. But the coming home part is great.

She likes the bike a lot
I cant wait to see it in person. The picture I have don't do it justice at all. Very nice dealership loaded it on the trailer and strapped it down for her no questions asked. I keep thinking to myself what a thrill when I get to see it for the first time about like having my first born cant stop grinning and smiling.

Your biggest problem when returning home from deployment is disguising how much you are really not so interested in the Burgman, honestly darling.;)

Let me ask the Burgman experts this question I will not be back til late next month or early September to the states. Will my battery be alright til then? The dealer put a new battery in but the bike will be sitting til I return home from my deployment. My wife will not be riding the bike til I return. I just don't want the battery to be dead when I get ready to ride the first day I return home. Any suggestions or comments

The glassmatt batteries are a lot tougher than the old wet cell type.

Mine has sat in the bike for 2 months in winter with no issues. 6 months out of the bike with no issues. I am also sure some bikes just sit at a dealer, and batteries just sit at the store for that time.

It would be prudent to remove it, or at least disconnect it if you know for sure no one will be riding it for 2+ months.

There is some slight drain on the battery, even if the key is removed.

My last option would be a battery tender, as that requires some (although minimal) monitoring.

Be safe, have wife shop for Yusa battery charger or Battery Tender jr" on internet,
cost 30.00 to $40.00, if shop around on internet can sometime purchase for $29.95. Try Partzilla, PowerSport Plus etc. Me would not leave battery without charger for 2-3 month. You will have mini charger/maintainer many many year ! Prefer YUSA personally, even Wal-Mart sometime have these house brand.
These automatic will not damage bike battery, DO NOT USE AUTOMOBILE BATTERY CHARGER !

Don't mean to be a bucket of water but it would make a lot more sense for you to wait till you got back and test ride this machine to make sure it is what you want and then "negotiate" a price for it. The dealers want to create a gaga situation on new models and imply a shortage to sell at premium prices. It is not that way and by waiting you will likely get a better deal, may avoid any launch issues, and not have to worry about a scooter sitting in your garage and depreciating every day.

You might not even like the machine and then you will take a real beating getting rid of it.

The Battery Tender Jr. is on sale right now for $21.99 at
www.jafrum.com
Takes a bit of looking to find it, but that is about half price.

Ditto on the ABS! :laughing6:

The folding mirrors come in REALLY handy here in California where Lane Splitting is legal :D
