Very cool! I just KNEW that USA Today was good for something!
Maybe the review should make 'not advised' a little clearer then, because on 'our side of the pond' when we are travelling in parts of Germany, you can go as fast as you like!Not advised because it's never legal (at least on this side of the pond)???? Certainly "not advised" has nothing to do with the Burgman's capabilities. Would a review ever advise something illegal?
Not read anywere ever that 650 have link brake system. This is feature that would certainly be mention if equip as standard equip.I saw that too and was wondering about that. Are the brakes linked together during hard braking when the anti-lock system kicks in? I don't know enough about my ride.
linked brakes are only available for the 250 model sold in europe.Not read anywere ever that 650 have link brake system. This is feature that would certainly be mention if equip as standard equip.
Even 2014 info not mention anything about link brake.
This 2014 web site info.:
The Burgman 650 ABS model also offers an antilock braking system (ABS)** that helps to maximize the rider’s control by preventing the wheels from locking during hard brake application. The ABS unit weighs 55% less than the previous model.
*Measured in the Worldwide Motorcycle Test Cycle (WMTC).
**The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.
There IS a 200 (and it will be available in North America very soon). There just isn't a 250.Up to 2014 Burgman 250 do exist.
As of 2014 Burgman line worldwide now:
650, 400, 200, 125.
Not all sold in North America.
