The product line should have died a glorious death years ago. Suzuki should bring back the naked GS500E, but with updates. How about an improved 600 Bandit?



Peace

Maybe they could celebrate the anniversary of the Charter, too.

I would take that deal if they would throw in a Katana Cover along with the Katana Tank Cover.

They need to reassign the Katana name to something that deverves it, namely the inline six. Anything less is a waste of a great name that was severly dragged through the mud with those silly jelly-bean bikes.

The SV650 isn't really a starter bike. A cheapie GS500E would be nice to see again.



The same for the Honda Hawk or an updated Ascot.

They should have killed those sub-standard butt ugly bikes years ago. The latest ones remind me of a "guppy" or maybe a "puffer fish"! Sorry I just call 'em like I see 'em.

I must have been asleep during that illustrious moment in motorcycing history. To call those ugly things 'legendary' takes more balls than the National League. I wonder why the 'legend' that never was is ending?
