And with all the advanced technology and obvious improvement in reliability, they continue providing the same 1 year warranty they did in 1965. Really inexcusable!

I bought the new blue and white bandit and can't stay off of it. There was a new FZ-1 sitting right next to the bandit and after sitting on both and ogling them all over, I just couldn't pass up on the Suzuki. I didn't get the huge discounts you see some get but 400 bucks off msrp is not so bad when you consider that the nearest competing dealer is at least 100 miles away.

It's interesting that Triumph came out with the Rocket III in 2005 and is getting ready to begin their second year of production of this bike, and MO has not tested one or even done a riding impression.

Wrong! F1 cars use a dry clutch (not a torque converter) with their paddle shifting.

What a good looking bike also. I hadn't seen the blue and white until just now on the suzuki site. Great looks and $7399. Great purchase.

Watch the Aerostich/naked combo. I got to the point I only wear my leather stuff on my bike due to lack of wind protection. The 'stich grabs a lot of wind that you don't feel with a tighter leather jacket.



FWIW

I was refering to the 2006 Suzuki GSX-R600 possibly costing more than 8200 (2005 price). I know the 2006 R6 will cost 9200 or more next year. That's getting a bit silly for a 600... Especially since the FZ-1 is a much more useful bike.
