First, there is no comparison between reading about a bike, and sitting on one. What "fits" for me, may not "fit" for you. Ergonomics are so individual. And so are other tastes in what appeals...

While both bikes are good, that one line to me says the Burgman 400 would be the best. (It would be nice to own both though as some have suggested. ;) )
