I've just discovered this on Youtube: "New 2013 Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive Scooter" Any changes are explained on this short video and it looks like the lack of a backrest was an error.MJR said:How interesting cause the US model has one and that they still use the "Executive" moniker. I wonder if it's some sort of mistake as I believe some markets still offer a standard model one.
They've been selling one model in the US since 2011 which was the Executive model. For 2013 the dropped the Executive name in the US and call it simply 2013 Burgman 650 ABS.javajo said:My understanding is that here (US) they're selling one model, which has all the features of the past Executives, there is no 650.
And I do not think they ever have except as an accessory add-on.blackcat54 said:I'm at a total loss as to why mgmt saw fit to not include heated grips & seat in the USA!!!!!
I was guessing he really got a 2012. Ok so I tracked down the dealer in Hendersonville, NC (Dal-Kawa Cycle Center) which is where the user said he was from and I called them. They do not have a 2013 650 in stock and do not have pricing or a date when they might get one yet. So either the guy is ending up with a 2012 650 or a 2013 400.Bill-Bill said:You have to wonder what is going on??? The above poster said they called corporate and was told the 2013s had not left Japan yet, if that is true how did someone in NC purchase one and posted it on this forum?
