I expect that Suzuki got surprised by the number of new Wee's that have been sold already this year. That is not surprising as I was told by my local dealer that he had trouble selling then and several times got stuck with one and had to discount it to sell it in previous years. He didn't even order one for 2012 and then tells me that he has had 3 or 4 people in looking to buy one. If you read the magazines, it seems that the middle-weight dual sport motorcycles like the Wee have suddenly become popular. I have also noticed that I am getting a lot of comments from the public about my bike, a lot more than I am used to getting. I am personally glad I have held on to my 2007 and didn't try for a new one.
I don't remember what the last year of the "old" Wee's came out in orange but I am sure one of the members here can fill you in. You might want to consider picking up a nice used one of those.
