Suzuki Burgman 200

October 2, 2007

Something I never thought I’d see: The Suzuki Burgman 200. Wait, there’s a Burgman 125? Why? That must be a screamer.

    The Burgman 200 and 125 exist because of the quirks of taxation and rider licensing laws in various European countries. In the latter case, if your bike is a 125 there are considerably fewer hoops to jump through. Seems to me Vespa showed at GT 125 somewhere a few years ago…

    I just can’t picture an italian teenager with a learner’s permit aspiring to be a midwestern American empty-nester. Seriously, though, I get *why* they do it, but that bike has got to be a total sloth, you’d think people wouldn’t even be interested.I guess if they made an Escalade with footpedals, teenagers would line up for it.

    Actually, now that I think about it, Alessandro Del Piero starred in their campaign and Italy did win the cup and all. So I guess maybe Italian teenagers emulate Italian Calcio stars, who emulate midwestern American empty-nesters.
