That Suzuki looks like a great bike. A comfortable bike with the TL1000 engine would be about as good a package as I could dream of. PLEASE BRING IT TO THE U.S. !

Hope Aprilia can build alittle more up to the NY Show in February. Blue Marlin? Maybe those Ducati MHE900 owners are going to be on E-Bay abit more. Benelli with a limited edition SBK Tornado? Did they even start selling regular ones yet? 998R? Wow I gotta make room on my walls for the new posters....

The more competition the better. Bring over cheap do-it-all roadsters. That way Honda, Yamaha, and Kawasaki can concentrate fully on flagship-type bikes for those with disposable income, yet the rest of us still have a decent choice of cheap bikes.

Not a chance. Not going to see it in the US.

Suzuki's new US offerings this year are pretty slim. A couple new colors, barely upgraded SV suspension. Oh, and didn't they cancel the TL?

It's not V-Storm, it's V-Strom. Don't know why, but it is.

Either way, it looks like a TDM.

I dunno, I think there's a decent selection out there now. Plenty of cheap lightweight cruisers, the GS500 for entry-level naked bike, the Ninja 500 for entry-level sport... Plus you get an established dealer/parts/support network.

But yeah, competition's good. I wish Hyosung (sp?) luck. The Comet's neat.

BTW, I used to be a starving student myself. Now I'm a starving adult. That's why I bought a new Bandit 600 this year for $5500. Couldn't be happier.
