Burgman 400 Overview
It fits well, like a fine handmade suit. It rides comfortably and performs like a champion. It manoeuvres brilliantly. And it delivers a winning combination of stylish design, practicality and convenience. The Burgman 400, bringing greater class and pleasure to your journey.
Like a top athlete in peak form, the Burgman 400 is lean, toned and ready to perform optimally, even on narrow, twisty, or congested streets. Not only are its front and rear end slimmer, sharper and sexier than ever, this Burgman remains true to its family name by offering fine style that will turn as many heads out front of the office as it will in front of your favourite café or out on the road.
Burgman 400 Key Features
At the heart of the new Burgman 400’s polished performance is an updated version of its powerful 399cc four-stroke, DOHC, single-cylinder, fuel injected engine. Changes including a new air box help produce greater low-to-midrange torque for instant response and more powerful acceleration when riding in stop-and-go traffic, while also providing more powerful performance when riding tandem. Suzuki’s automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) continues to ensure optimal idling.
Superior Economy and Range
Along with the increase in low-to-midrange torque production, the efficiency of the new engine, including the introduction of an iridium spark plug, combines with the reduction in weight to achieve improved fuel economy of and extends the Burgman 400’s riding range.
Luxurious Ride and Handling
The new Burgman 400’s underbone frame is built from large diameter, thin wall tubes that deliver the light weight and rigidity required for great handling. Complementing this frame in realising a stable, relaxing and nimble ride are 41mm front forks with a generous 110mm of wheel travel. In addition, the link-type monoshock rear suspension with 7-way adjustable spring preload helps maximise the balance between comfort and sporty performance by providing a softer ride on cobblestone streets and solid traction on relatively smooth roads. Exceptional handling and manoeuvrability are the result.
The lap of luxury
The stepped dual seat offers luxurious comfort for rider and passenger alike by combining a cushion that is 20mm thicker and a shape that is slimmer than on the current model. Double stitching adds a distinctively fashionable accent. The rider’s backrest can be adjusted 15mm or 30mm forward to provide optimal support and comfort for riders of various builds on longer outings. The upswept windscreen creates a cleaner, more compact look from the front or sides. At the same time, it matches its predecessor in delivering optimum wind protection for rider comfort, as well as a clear view of the road.
Rich Storage Space
The Burgman 400’s spacious 42-litre underseat storage*1 compartment can hold two helmets*2 and provides ample room for stowing your gear. Two front compartments provide 3.5 litres*3 of storage space on the right side and 2.8 litres*4 on the left side for maps and other items. The right storage bay has a 12V DC outlet*5 for charging your mobile phone or other electronic devices.
Large, easy-to-read analogue speedometer and tachometer dials flank a digital display that shows an odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, coolant temperature indicator, average fuel consumption meter, ambient temperature indicator, freeze indicator*6 and clock. Also included is Suzuki’s Eco Drive Indicator, which come on when the vehicle is operated in a fuel-efficient manner and may help riders learn techniques to better economise on fuel*7.
Greater Peace of Mind
Security technologies help to protect your Burgman 400. The Suzuki Advanced Immobiliser System (SAIS) uses an electronic identification system in the owner’s key to prevent unauthorised people from starting the engine. A magnetic cover that opens only for the owner’s key protects the ignition switch for added security. The chain lock gate allows you to pass a chain lock through the bodywork, around the frame, and then around a pole or other immovable object. Located on the same side as the ignition key, the easy-to-operate brake lock lever applies a lock system that acts on the rear brake when parked. The rear brake lock system can prove useful when parking on a slope.
