as someone who has ridden a 25 yr old bmw for the last 10 years (you work out the math) i gotta say that the fun factor on the sv sazooks looks immense. but damn that tail section is so terribly ugly, i just could not bring myself to it - and i want to.

Bell Moto III??? No! You need your Simpson Bandit helmet to go with your Bates gloves and boots! Come on man, get current on what's hot nowadays! Well, I gotta' go watch the season premiere of Starsky and Hutch now. Chau, baby.

Default Take heart my friend

Go to the Moto-station web site and look at the high res picture of the instrument panel on the faired model. It reads mph and temperature in Fahrenheit. To me that says they plan to bring it here.



On the downside, the decision has already been made for 2003 and no amount of flogging of the suzook reps could change it for 2003. There's too much paperwork and regulatory crap that has to be done months in advance to make them bring it in for 2003 three if they do not plan to already.



And I agree they are really stupid if they don't. But look at the 650, its updated for 03 and it sells like hotcakes. How wierd would it be to update the 650, make a near identical big brother and then only import the little one.

Default Thanks for the astute observation

You're right! Well, I guess that provides some relief. Thanks for pointing out what I was too frothy to notice.

Default Re: It may not be here until 2004????

Don't worry. I have it on very good authority (I can't say, but trust me) that it is, indeed, coming to the U.S. soon. You'll see it when the rest of the world sees it, but your dealer is usually the last person to know what's going on.

Frame breakage was never a 'bane' of TL owners. At least most of the many I know/knew. I think I heard about ONE person whose framed cracked, on a `97 model. Nor were tankslappers either, despite the rabid rumor mill that basically killed that great bike.

Well...the reason that MO is always way behind, or totally absent on some braking news is because of the "subcription thing". They are too busy counting their money, and not busy enough reporting the news!!!!!!!!! MCN is FREE! I will not be renewing my subcription unless things pick up a bit.



I now own a SV650 and it has just just dropped in value...I wonder if I can trade my "dinosaur" for the 1000...
