What is the fastest scooter legally for a NSW Leaner ?
Oh no........abort mission......abort mission
Suzuki Burgman 650cc (I'm pretty sure it's LAMS).
But if you want speed, don't by a scooter, by a motorcycle.
well i'm also a "NSW Leaner" and can agree with mick - buy a motorbike.
Dude get a bike.
Chicks dig bikes.
Hmmmm... You're a chick.
Girl, get a bike.
Dudes dig bikes.
in case you've not got the message yet.
Get a proper bike, I hear BMW Scarvers are quite good.
Burgman 650 with CVT in power mode will eat any other LAMS bike off the line for (guessing) 95% of riders. I'm kinda regretting not getting one, only problem is that you sit with your feet in front of you.
So it's a chair and not a bike?
Why do you want a Scooter ??? Over a bike What's your thought process ?
Yes, that is the problem (but not unique to the burgman).
In a recent interview for IMR Mick Doohan mention education he rode both an Aprillia Scooter (I didn't know there was one) and a Hardley.
I admit I'm envious of the storage with many scooters.
The new BMW scooters are getting excellent reviews. But they are expensive...
So I wasn't sure what a Burgman 650 looked like and I googled it ... and found this bloke did the Birdsville Track on one and seems to really like it.
If I remember rightly from a test ride, there was enough room on the footboards to get my feet nearly under my bum. (I have a stuffed back, so sitting with feet out in front isn't a good option for me.)
The Burgman is, indeed, a nice bit of kit, but, it is roughly twice the weight and cost of a sensible motorcycle like a VTR250.
Anyway, I thought that you had to be a geriatric Ulysses Club member before you rode a Bergman.
They have a button which retracts the mirrors for filtering.
Can it crack 300km/h?
I see a market screaming for a solution.
Until the Bergman comes with a bar fridge and a decent coffee machine, I'll stick with the BMW.
That sounds like a business plan. Modifying scooters to have a built-in espresso machine.
If anyone on here makes this, I'll buy one.
