It's on the Suzuki website:
http://www.suzukicycles.com/Product%...14/UH200A.aspx

No price yet.

Oh, and don't buy a Kymco.

Kymco scooters are great. There reputation for reliability is second to none.

Don't count on any information on the Burgman 200 any time soon. I waited almost a year for information and price on the Suzuki GW250. Finally, after a year on their site, they announced the price, and a short time later the local dealer got one. A 2013 model that arrived just in time for 2014. The good part is, it appears to be a really nice bike.

What KYMCO are you considering?

Kymco has an excellent reputation.

Thus my confusion on Gore-Tx saying not to buy one.

Any supporting info on why not a Kymco?

I would pass fast on the Burg 200. I rode one extensively in Europe and came any with this. Looked great and ran smooth. It was slow, to large and a bit much around town.

A lot of better choices for the money.

Be big,
AMAC

$4999. WTF?

DO buy a Kymco or a Genuine or a Honda or a Yamaha.

Whatever suits your fancy.

That Suzuki price is way out of line, IMO.

Ya I saw that price too awhile back and was shocked. No reason to even look at the thing now. Should be around $3800 imo

They don't even sell that in Japan...and it's a Japanese company. Maybe because the locals will prefer the 2 other big brands (Honda and Yamaha). Go figure.

I expected around 4500 for it. (PCX is 3500, Forza is 5500 so I figured they'd split the difference.) At 4999, I wouldn't even consider it. Just get a Forza or DT300.

I figured the MSRP would be $4699 or maybe $100 higher. But I really don't think $4999 is all that bad. The Burgman 200 has ABS standard and if you want ABS on a Forza, it would be $6099. The Burgman 200 is about 60 pounds lighter than a Forza, so I wouldn't think the Forza would be a whole lot faster. The 200 would be a lot more manuverable around town.

I need to see it in person, but to me personally, the Burgman 200 is a very nice looking scooter. The Forza is butt ugly in my opinion.

I am looking to replace my sub-300cc commuter next year. I am impressed with my 2011 Burgman 400cc, but would not pay $4,999.00 OTD for the 200 Suzuki. I might bite at $4,300.00 Out the Door, but there are other nice rides to choose from.

JMHO from a Suzuki owner.
