I think it actually looks better than the V-rod is some areas. I think the headlight is the hardest thing to puzzle out.



The lines seem to flow nicely, like the exhaust for example. That looks nicer to me than the V-rod.

Default Ugly headlight shell

yea, it is.

It would be nice if the shell of the headlight could slip off and be interchangeble with a bikini or larger fairing.

Default The Truth

There is a need for the US market to increase the size of 65% of all our products. I don't think the growth rate(size wise) of motorcycles is keeping up with the general public.

Some people like me want a shi%load of low end torque. Sport bikes don´t deliver that.

Neat. That's the best looking middleweight "naked" yet.



Unfortunately, Suzuki and the other manufacturers are constrained by the American market, and what sell here. It costs lots of money to get a bike on the market here, and then they have to contend with the "limited" American market. They can only sell so many "naked" bikes here.



Look at Kawasaki's new 650. They had to put a stupid fairing on it to get it to sell here.



On the other hand, there seems to be an insatiable appetite for cruisers here. If you liked cruisers, you would be in paradise!

I agree with you otherwise, but how about Honda Rune? I think that´s adorable

He probably means the motorbike game. On the sunglasses and t-shirts the japs are hopelessly behind.

Yeah, I've got like 600 miles on the Bool. It's all broken in by now. Changed the earl at 400 miles (20/50 HD) along with a new philter.

(sounded like the factory put sewing machine oil in it). The thing hauls ass, but I'm still having a hard time getting use to all the engine racket. Get some earplugs I guess.



Dig that Zooper motard 'zuki has in the UK. Why don't they import it? Makes no sense...

I don't knw about that, I've seen some pretty good Japanese Elvis impersonators, they've got the rolled up sleeve-camel pack thing down, along with the Foster grant deal.
