Why? It's more expensive than the BMW C600 and less than $300 less than the GT 650.

It's an absolutely brilliant bike. I seen them in europe where they have been on sale for some time (not in the UK sadly). They get a good write up. I'd take a Myroad 700i any time over the BMW even with any price difference. Kymco have impeccable engineering standards and a reputation that exceeds the more recent BMW bike standards here in europe. You don't read of Kymco going rusty with poor finish, having mechanical and electrical trouble etc etc like some BMW models. Although that excludes their scoots at the moment. But the fact that so many people have had trouble with their new BMW motorcycles is not good and very off putting. Over here in europe the Kymco costs less than the BMW's.

Went to the Kymco site and noted in the spec's that it has throttle-body carburator. Did I read it right? That can't be right. Is it?

If I need more power I just push the power button on my 650 or jump on my son's Victory Vision. :D

You misinterpreted what was posted.

It has a Synerject throttlebody mounted injector.

All the super scooters have there advantages. What is needed is a totally un biased review of them. Don't plan on getting that from any of the current cycle magazines. The people there want nothing to do with scooters. We need a review done by scooter people that can compare theme to our needs not a crotch rocket test pilot. I would like to see how the rest of the super scooter brands compare to the Burgman 650 when it comes to interstate touring. My Burgman can keep right up with the large displacement bikes. I may not get to the 1/4 mile as fast but it is no problem to cruise at 80 and 90 all day. My Silverwing gets a little buzzy and out of breath at 85 mph. But my Silverwing is my daily commuter and serves me well for that. As for the Kymco and the BMW The reviews I read have missed the point. I don't want a motorcycle disguised as a scooter. I know the capabilitys of a Burgman and Silverwing, Kmco and BMW need to prove themselves. And I am not talking about buying off the magazine reporters to get it done.
