Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS

Best Scooter

One of the best-kept secrets of the two-wheeled world is the big-engined scooter with a car complex, and one of the sharpest weapons in that arsenal is the Burgman. Unlike chintzy baby scoots, it's more like a motorcycle wrapped in luxe amenities – from an electrically operated windscreen and folding mirrors to a power-outlet-equipped glove box. A big, 638cc engine whooshes the Burgman along like a big-boy bike, while its continuously variable transmission makes mad acceleration a thoughtless, twist-and-go affair. [$10,999; suzukicycles.com]
