They've already got a 500 single. I guess this one is for the twin lovers. If you really want to move, whats wrong with the MyRoad 700?

I don't think that the MyRoad 700 is still imported to the US. Does anyone know if it's still being made?

Near 50/50 weight balance sounds nice.
NO plans to introduce it to USA market.
There are still unsold 700's in showrooms, which can be had for about 60% of MSRP. Considering the poor resale value of Burman maxis - the discounted big Kymco might be a good alternative.

Didn't do more than roll one around a bit. I didn't like the seat 'nuff to take it for a test ride.
There are some good reviews of it and the Kymco forums have some as well. including this
http://www.kymcoforum.com/index.php?topic=22941.0
wherein Stig notes that the Kymco's standard CVT is much more easily serviced than the 650's.
It is a valid point, & I did think about that, but the 650's CVT has it's points as well.
Others note not as quick off the line but pulls better as you go along. Considering that rollers can be easily swapped vs. having to custom engineer your ratios via a computer you could probably adjust that a bit one way or the other more easily on the 700 unless you do have software and the know how to reflash the burger (PM me if you do..)
Unfortunately the bike flopped in the U.S. so I believe they've pulled it.
If they release it here the 550 twin may be something I'll check out though if lighter with similar functionality to the newer 650
