Well, they've got a good and well-respected lineup, pity no dresser or sport-tourer, though.



BTW, first post?

Mo should start charging for fluff articles like this one. Then you wouldn't have to ask your readers for money...



Where is the pay site?

Nothing about the TL models that have basically remained the same since '97? I am seriously disappointed if this is it... I guess I'll just need to wait....longer. An updated V-twin super sport is needed. Suzuki, are you listening?

Having just bought a 2001 SV650S, I was expecting to see "Major changes on the SV, new 700cc motor, fuel injection, 20 lbs. lighter". Relieved to see only minor changes!

Why were you relieved? Just because you wasted your money dosent mean the rest of the buying public shouldent get an upgraded SV.

What you talking about boy?! Them be adjustable forks on the new SV!!



And, do I see a silver, black, and yellow SV in that picture? Please tell me that whose will be the available-in-USA colors? Please?



Ahh who am I kiddin'. I own a blue 2000 SV, but I would really dig a 2002 Silver SVS.

Oops... just noticed that they are preload adjustable only. Still better than what we got now, but not a huge deal I guess.



I still really dig the silver. I'd prefer the darker wheels (like on the 2000 models) and the darker, single color engine (like the 1999 & 2000 models). Gimme all that and a silver paint job and I'd be happy. Or maybe I'll just repaint mine

Keep in mind it is still early... this is probably just round 1 of many of 2002 model announcements.



Besides, I thought they already killed the TL-S? I wouldn't be suprised if they announce a new sporty bike with the TL engine. An SV1000 would be neat, there seems to be a lot of interest.

I am going to say the same thing that everyone else is going to say, but here it goes anyway. I would REALLY have liked to see the TL1000s eliminated and offered in SV trim.(IE No rotary dampener, better ergo's) I would also like to see the mild Katana 750 bumped up a few cc's and offered with hard bags. I have not been to their site yet to see if any other bikes have changed but I hope that they did not touch the bandit 1200s (other than maybe offering it in solid black). Even if nothing radically new comes out of Suzuki this year, they still have a very impressive lineup.
