saw it at the toronto motorcycle show a couple weeks ago. not very impressive. but i'm not a suzuki fan, either. the yellow is not attractive, and the black doesn't look as good as i thought it would. the price is ok, though (i think it lists at $8000 something canadian). but for $2000cdn more, you could have the ktm, so why bother??? ;)

Sat on it at the Seattle Bike show........It felt cheap and slapped together...... the front brake hose sat up over everything by a foot.... looked comical, a few other things as well.......I sat on the new 450....much better fit and finish, better attention to detail....next year Suzuki will have it together...to be honest I think they are testing the waters..... I gave it a five.......the 450 a ten :thumbup:

It was a normal speedo, I sat on it in seattle as well..

for the price tag, the Husaberg 650, Husky 610, or the KTM smc are only a few bucks more, and your getting at least a 200cc bump, Way newer frame/bike technology, and lots of shiny bits (Magura Hydraulic Clutch, brembo's etc)

Yeah, and the 625 is right in the middle.. at around 7200-7500...

I'm just saying there's a lot more bang for the buck.. if you look around.


AND YEAH, they're :hammer:

I'm talking to they boys in Idaho about a 05-625 and I'm gettting serious about getting rid of the TL.

so yeah, I'm around a lot more these days.

are you an ex-canadian??? how did you manage to get to the u.s.??? hook me up!!!

actually, i normally find (i.e. when the exchange rate isn't what it's at right now) our stuff to be cheaper. but the ktm prices seem to be comparable right now, anyway....

yeah, you yankees love your war!!! hehe.... ;)

why would you want dual citizenship??? i can see why i'd want it (i.e. to live/work in america)...but an american??? :)

i'd give anything to live in california...or somewhere else where you can ride year round...this sucks. december's not even over and i think it was -2 (or less) celcius today. brrrrrrr. no snow to speak of yet, thank god. but it's going to be a long winter. and our summer this past year was crap.

That was the major reason I left my home in the north suburbs of Chicago and moved to Las Vegas in 1988, no more -40 F. But the summers here,112F. are almost as bad and almost as long but you can actualy ride that is if you and the bike can stand the heat. Califorina's nice just way too crowded and expensive but still nice to visit. Jeff.
