2013 Suzuki Burgman 650 Executive ABS Review
2013 Suzuki Burgman 650 Executive ABS
Suzuki’s Burgman 650 Executive maxi-scooter has arrived in Australia equipped with ABS, electric mirrors, eye-catching styling enhancements. At it’s heart is the 638cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine featuring vibration-reducing dual counter balancer shafts delivering smooth, powerful performance.
The Burgman’s Computerised Suzuki Electronically-controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (SECVT) offers three modes, two fully-automatic modes (Normal and Power) and manual mode. The manual transmission mode features six predetermined CVT ratios which are easily selected using convenient Up and Down buttons on the handlebar.
Setting the Burgman 650 Executive apart from the pack, Suzuki has introduced a new Antilock Brake System (ABS) providing added safety and control.
An expansive, thickly padded seat allows plenty of space for two people to sit comfortably for long stretches, and includes a rider backrest that is easily adjustable without tools.
Boasting masses of storage capacity, Suzuki’s Burgman 650 Executive has a huge 56-litre under-seat storage compartment enough for normal size two full-face helmets and three front compartments for small items.
The Burgman 650 Executive is also now equipped with a Suzuki Advanced Immobiliser System (SAIS), a transponder-type, transistorised, digital, computer-controlled immobiliser to increase security. For additional security, the ignition switch is fitted with a magnetic cover that opens only with correctly coded key.
For added convenience, the Burgman 650 Executive model also features electronically-controlled rear view mirrors and height adjustable windscreen.
If you’re ready, the Burgman 650 Executive with ABS is ready for business.
It rules. BURGMAN. The name is synonymous with two-wheel luxury.
For an entire generation of riders, BURGMAN has redefined the motorcycling experience. In ways once unimaginable, it has brought performance and comfort into alignment.
It has presented motorcyclists everywhere with new ways to think about the twin pursuits of pleasure and freedom.

The Executive Experience
For even greater luxury during every ride, choose the Executive grade, which comes with three exclusive features.
Suzuki’s attention to luxury extends even to the rider’s hands. The handlebar grips incorporate electric heaters that can be controlled by the rider – a welcome source of warmth when temperatures drop below comfortable.
A flick of a switch located next to the ignition activates an electric seat heater for the rider and passenger. So cold winter days are no reason to feel less than comfortable when you’re riding the most luxurious scooter on the road.
A great shared riding experience is assured by a backrest that firmly supports a passenger to provide comfort and a sense of security.
The feeling is empowering.
On the open highway, the BURGMAN 650 cruises in a class of its own. Such is the abundance of power at hand that your every destination feels near. It’s exhilarating. And from the exhilaration is born inspiration. The ease with which you accelerate, downshift, and manoeuvre around traffic and through every backroad detour is a tour de force. With surefootedness that inspires confidence and plush ride comfort that leaves you feeling sharp and relaxed long after you hit the road, the BURGMAN 650 empowers you to go much further.
Seat of freedom.
To be sure, two wheels are practical. And touring the countryside is certainly fun. But deep in your bones you know the real reason you ride: the promise of freedom. The BURGMAN 650 lets you touch it.
All the inspiration you need sits here in this seat of freedom. The easy ride says get comfortable and trace the arc of every whim.
You just need an open road. The limits are beyond your imagination.

2013 Suzuki Burgman 650 Executive ABS Features and Benefits
The well-contoured lap of luxury
From every angle, the BURGMAN 650 displays the exquisite craftsmanship, smart technology, and superior quality that went into producing this two-wheeled work of art. As your eye traces the majestic bodylines, you see an imposing expression of power and a look of nimbleness. The beautifully contoured body produces an artistic interplay of light and shadow.
Details such as sharply styled multi-reflector headlights further exhibit the BURGMAN 650’s originality and sophistication.
Even the smart, clean arrangement of controls and instruments helps to assure ultimate comfort. Every detail is shaped and positioned to keep you relaxed and completely in control.
Slim, sharply styled multi-reflector headlights announce the BURGMAN 650’s arrival and keep the road ahead in focus. They’re both lit whether you choose high beams or low. Sparkling LED position lights help to heighten visibility, as do turn signals in the rearview mirrors.
Quality in view
Clean looks are synonymous with refinement. On the BURGMAN 650 they’re exemplified by symmetry in the controls and instruments and by understated shapes and colors for everything the rider sees and touches.
Sparkling dual multi-reflector tail lights combine outstanding visibility with sophisticated styling that’s unique to the BURGMAN 650.
Knowledge is power, so the BURGMAN 650’s instruments keep the rider fully informed. Big, easy-to-read analogue dials for the speedometer and tachometer flank a digital display that shows an odometer, twin trip meters, a fuel consumption meter, a fuel meter, a coolant temperature indicator, a thermometer, a clock, an oil level indicator, an oil change indicator, a drive mode indicator (for drive mode and power mode), and a gear position indicator (for manual mode).
Eco Drive Indicator
The BURGMAN 650 features a new Eco Drive Indicator to encourage riding that may reduce environmental impacts. The Eco Drive Indicator light, located on the instrument panel, will come on when the vehicle is operated in a fuel-efficient manner – and may help riders learn techniques to improve their fuel economy*. *The Eco Drive Indicator does not automatically improve fuel economy but may help riders refine their riding efficiency and improve fuel consumption. Fuel consumption may vary depending on traffic conditions, such as the frequency of starts from stop, distance driven, rate of acceleration (throttle use), chosen speed, and maintenance.
A higher class of performance
The BURGMAN 650 delivers performance with as much control as you desire. A liquid-cooled 638cm3 engine offers all the power you need. Computerized fuel injection, a Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system, and an O2 feedback system with catalyzer boost fuel efficiency and minimize emissions. Refined transmission setting and reduced mechanical losses contribute to boost fuel economy even more; the engine uses 15% less fuel* than that of the previous model in drive mode. Meanwhile, superlative control comes from a Suzuki Electronically-controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (SECVT). By just toggling buttons on the handlebars, you can choose three distinct transmission modes: two fully automatic modes (Drive and Power) and Manual. Drive mode heightens efficiency at normal road speeds and gives smooth, linear, almost shock-free power delivery for easy riding. Power mode gives more punch when you twist the throttle. And Manual mode lets you thumb-toggle between five preset gear ratios for a unique feeling of control. The SECVT’s updated design includes new clutch plates that cause 35% less drag. *Measured in the Worldwide Motorcycle Test Cycle (WMTC).
The exhaust system is sleek thanks to a new-look triangle-section muffler, And it’s engineered to keep emissions so low that the BURGMAN 650 satisfies the most stringent regulations.
A tubular frame and aluminium-alloy swingarm position the engine and transmission for balance and agility. The frame inherits the long, 1595mm wheelbase of earlier Burgmans for a sporty, controllable ride and has a newly designed, slimmer tail section for sleeker, sportier bodywork. Plenty of wheel travel (110mm at the front and 100mm at the rear) helps to keep the ride smooth.
Room for everything
The BURGMAN 650 has room for plenty of gear. A cavernous, 50-litre underseat compartment can hold two full-face helmets and has a light for nighttime convenience. A cable lock allows you to secure a helmet outside the compartment to make space for luggage inside. Three compartments below the handlebars provide space for maps and other items you might need on the road. One contains a DC outlet that’s ideal for charging a mobile telephone.
The windscreen is shaped to give great wind protection and a clear view of the road. It’s electrically adjustable to suit the rider’s height. For convenience in tight parking spaces, the rearview mirrors can be retracted electrically at the touch of a button.
The seat is optimally sized and thickly padded for two-up luxury even on long journeys. The rider’s backrest can be adjusted forward and backward by 50mm for optimal support. No tools are necessary.
Security technologies help to protect your investment in the BURGMAN 650. The Suzuki Advanced Immobilizer System (SAIS)* uses an electronic identification system in the owner’s key to prevent unauthorized people from starting the engine. Plus, the ignition switch is protected by a magnetic cover that opens only for the owner’s key. *Not available with North American specifications.
All-round disc brakes deliver reassuring stopping power. The front brakes have an updated design with floating discs for more consistent braking performance.
An antilock braking system (ABS)* helps to maximize the rider’s control by preventing the wheels from locking during hard brake application. The ABS unit weights 55% less than that of the previous model. *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.
A lever-operated brake lock lever gives the rider extra peace of mind. The lever has a stylish new design that makes it easier to reach and operate.
