As Lycheed has said from time to time that the Asian market seems to be more about styling than functionallity. I like the looks of the Griffon but I don't think my passenger would like it as much as the Burgman. I also love the storage space on the Burgman. The Griffon, if it ever comes to our shores will be more popular with the younger crowd who have a fear of there product being called a scooter. It''s definetely a cross between a sportbike and a scooter.
