SOURCE: burgman 250 will not start
Ck fuses and wire connections first. If no problem seen, get bike running and disconnect the ground cable @ battery. If bike dies the problem generally is in the stator or regulator assembly not keeping battery charged. Bike will run untill the battery is too low to keep the ignition system energized and the bike will die. If it continues running w/the ground disconnected, the battery could have a dead cell which will drain the battery in a very short time whether it is running or not.

Sounds to me like it could be a few things... pretty interesting that it runs and shuts down...sits for a little while then fires back up. Could be something as simple as a bad ground.. maybe it needs cleaned.. if the ground is making very little contact.. the bike would run bad, and because its direct current it has to flow. The metal in the motor frame etc will hold so much DC current.. but *** soon as it load up the bike would stop sparking. Let it sit for a while, DC trickles into the battery through the slight contact, bike fires back up. OR could be bad venting of your fuel tank, or a partial clog at the pet ****.. the first is pretty easy to check, open your fuel cap and start the bike..if it does the same thing then its not a vent problem. One thing that does happen on the Radian, is the reserve fuel screen inside the tank comes loose, and then everything inside the that has built up over the years either partially clogs the pet ****, or the hose, or both. Take the tank off, pull the pet **** off..if it still has two intact tubes with good screens..you probably don't have any junk in your line..but I would pull the line off and blow through it any way... it could be some type of blockage, when the bike sets the fuel seep through, but when it runs it eventually creates a vaccuum that stops the fuel flow. Those are my two first thoughts... good luck!!

I wrote all of this below and figured I'd come back up here and clearify...I think it sounds most like a carb issue...but I'm leaving everything else just so you have other things to check.
Sounds like it might be running over rich. Check your plugs to make sure one isn't fouled completely out. If they look good, check and make sure they are firing (you can pull one at a time and touch the threads to the outside of the engine block to ground it and crank it over...you should see it spark. If they are firing, check your filters (a blocked air filter can cause insufficient air flow and it would toss out until it could pull enough air in). Has the bike been sitting for a season or two with the same gas? If so, get rid of the gas in the tank...it's most likely turpentine now and would be better as a paint stripper then a combustion agent (yes...gas does spoil and depending on how well your tank is sealed...it can happen faster than that). Could also have some water in your tank. So if its been sitting, honestly longer than a month, I'd get rid of that the gas in the tank. From there check the carbs. You could have a float valve sticking or a bent needle. Last but not least...if you've done any major work to the engine...check your points or have someone check them for you. You could be off by just a degree or two and it will muck up everything. Hope this helps in some way and best of luck!
