Talking 400 horsepower Burgman

Quote:
Retiree Jim Wollam spends his days driving new cars to and from the Rouen car dealership on Conant Street in Maumee, and yesterday considered buying a sleek silver Suzuki Burgman scooter. The $5,600 vehicle has a 400 horsepower engine, which he said would be powerful enough to allow him to commute to work from his North Toledo home.

"It's a 40-mile round trip here to Maumee, and this gets 60 miles to the gallon, so it'll pay off," said the 70-year-old.

My GS is for sale now, I need to buy a 400hp scooter.

I wonder if I can do an exhaust mod to increase the HP?

She wrote me back after I sent her a note.

> Its a 400cc (cubic centimeter) engine, not 400 horsepower. ;-)
> That would be insane in a scooter, like a Corvette or Viper engine. ----

"I know, I know - luckily someone here caught it for our later edition, so
only people like yourself realize that I created the fastest scooter in the
history of scooters! Thanks for the note ..."
