Default Re: 40th Anniversary for Suzuki

The article mentions "plus the following features unique to each model" but then never elaborates? Did a part of the press release get snipped?



While I'm here, when are we going to see some reports on the SV1000? For a bike that has been so anticipated, the press is strangely silent. Is Suzook just not bringing out the test models?

It's interesting that they chose the Volusia instead of the LC to carry the anniversary badge for the cruiser line. The Volusia must be their big seller.

Default Coincidence?

Is it just a coincidence that all these Japanese companies are finding reasons to celebrate an anniversary the same year as H-D's 100th?



Hmmmmmmm

What? Yes, it is a coincidence. You see, every year is an anniversary for something. Next year will be H-D's 101st anniversary, Honda's 56th and Suzuki's 41st. Do you understand how this system works? It's been employed for quite some time now. Other examples include the 227th anniversary of the United States this year, Willow Springs 50th anniversary, (now thats something worth celebrating).

It's not just the Japanese... you forgot to mention Indian and Triumph.

I know it's a Suzuki press release, but do they have to say "Suzuki" in every single sentence? It is incredibly annoying.

Why let a 50 year hole in your production cycle stop you? lol



What's Indian celebrating? Five years of building Softail knockoffs?

They would say "Yamaha" or "Honda", but they felt it wasn't appropriate.
