Hey, guys, after few months of research and read through this forum, I made my mind and decided to go for the Burgman 400.

I went to the dealer this morning to pick it up and im attaching the very first pictures. It's been awhile since the last time I rode a motorcycle, so in the first ride, from the dealer to my office, was pretty tense but as I started to getting to know the bike and how it reacts I started to enjoy the ride.

One thing that blew my mind was the comfort, it is really really comfortable, the seat its just fine, one thing i notice even though I'm not that tall (6'), is that the space between the front and the seat was kinda short, and my legs were kinda looking for their place, it maybe a thing of getting used to the position, i may get to find that out pretty soon.

Regarding to the break-in process there are tons of suggestions, some of them say, go and ride the h3ll of out it, others say, stick to the manual, so I'm open to suggestions, However I think I'd ride it as normal as possible, avoiding trips > 60miles, and keeping the gas irregular, meaning slowing and accelerating every now and then to avoid a constant speed. (how does that sound?)

Accessories wise, I've gotten 2 Cabergs HI-VIZ, Sena MHS10 bluetooth headset. and still waiting on a Side wind deflectors for an400K7 i hope the work for this L3 (Winter is coming over here) and also bought an Icon Mil Vest HI-Viz yellow.


looking forward to hear you from guys.


thank you

Welcome and enjoy your new ride! Break in, just drive normal and do required oil and filter changes when speified. You should be fine. :thumbup:
Ride safe!

Welcome to the forum. If you want more legroom try taking the ButtRest off. That will give you a bit more, especially with a backrest.

Welcome aboard. Nice bike. I like the black and grey combination of colors, first one I have seen a picture of.

I think your break in plan is the best, just enjoy it. Mine took about 2000 miles for the whole bike to feel like it had loosened up and the braking improved.
