For what I do, the Burgman 400 is the best bike made. Everything else is a compromise. It is fun and flickable in the corners.

It gets great gas mileage...like mid-60s, yet still has a decent amount of power. And it is comfortable. immaterial.
I'll second the comments made above. On any one count you could find another scooter or motorcycle to "outrank" the Burg 400--- but as a "package" of merits and virtues it's the best thing going on two wheels.
