Well I think honda has your answer (some what) with the Silver wing, something similar but different. The GW cost $24 K the Burgman around $10 K (for 2012 model) Also you have a 6 cylinder bike vs 2? some people like it on automatic and don't need an air bag.
I like that both models are available and would like to have either (more in favor of the 650 than the huge GW, maybe my wife would choose different)
About this new model, I think I need to take a big look that way, maybe a bit out of my price range but will like to read on the long term reviews on these machines!
