In my ongoing product testing efforts to help everyone evaluate Burgman accessories and aftermarket products. I recently purchased a cover for my Suzuki Burgman 650 from the accessory page on the BurgmanRides.com site.

The total price plus shipping was about $40 and that was a real deal compared to what I paid for the old cover for my BMW motorcycle.

Product Description From Seller

Streetstar Burgman Cover

This is Champion Covers lightweight travel cover. This is NOT a cheap nylon or polypro cover like most others in this price range on EBAY. This highly water resistant cover will keep your bike clean, safe and dry. Highly water resistant, WEATHERGUARD Polyester with UV treating. All seams are double top stitched with nylon thread. Heat resistant THERMO GUARD Polyester on lower areas. Cloth chamois on windsheild and fuel tank areas resist scratches. Flow through ventilation prevents condensation. Large, heavy duty grommets at center and front wheel for locking cover with bike. Includes matching duffel for easy storage and travel. Champion Covers are the finest available and come with a no hassle, 2 year warranty.

*Fits all Burgman 650 models with rear trunks and aftermarket tall windshields.

The value of a good cover is two fold:

  1. It covers and protects your scooter from the elements when left outside.
  2. It shields your scooter from prying eyes and moves crooks onto the easier scooter to steal rather than yours.

When my Burgman is sitting at home in the garage, I never cover it. But if I am on a road trip, then I will.

It took about a week after ordering the cover for it to arrive in a little box, which demonstrated how small it can fold, at least once. 🙂

What really surprised me was that when I dumped the contents of the box out, a cable and lock was included as well. The cable is important if you want to “lock” the cover in place on the bike. Typically you will use the cable by placing in through the large holes on the middle of the bottom and feed the cable through it and lock both ends of the cable together.

The cover is very light when tucked into the storage bag and does not take up much space.

After I easily put the cover on the scooter I noticed that it also has some short bungee cords with hooks on it to make it even easier to attach to the scooter to keep it from blowing away.

The cover seems to have ample room for my Burgman 650, larger windscreen and if I had a top box on the back it would fit over that as well. I purchased the XXL size.

The only downside to the cover appears to be the lightweight cloth material that lines the inside of the front which is supposed to protect the windscreen. It is certainly better than not having anything there but it is not heavy plush chamois.

I would give this scooter cover a two thumbs up and I’m glad I bought it.
