I had a couple of Silverwings before I bought my first Burgman 650. The weights are pretty close between the 2 but pushing the B'man around the garage you'd have though it weighed a LOT more. I read somewhere something like the trans doesn't fully disengage on the B'man. Not sure if that is correct but I had to get rid of it before I had a heart attack.

I found the Reflex easy to push around but haven't had one for a year or so. I must admit I'm getting pretty used to the Sport City and Vespa and how light they are.

One really nice thing is that engines have gotten a lot more powerful with FI and the newer 150s can provide an around town ride that would have challenged some of the older ones.
