He doesn't have a clue. The front wheel is a 19" for example.

My buddy owns a Suzuki shop. He attended the recent Suzuki dealer show. Suzuki was telling their dealers that they expect the bike to start showing up on their floors by late Spring as a 2014 model. Which probably means mid summer. Unless of course they get another natural disaster in Japan. Then all bets are off.

Interesting. Found this post - a full and total copy-paste of my post #155 in this thread - on a forum I'm not a member of.. I guess plagiarism is a kind of flattery.

Can anyone corroborate this? A new big V in spring would change my plans drastically - I'd much rather have this bike than a Tenere or Tiger.

Default Butt Ugly

I would rather blowtorch my money than buy this heap of many things , designed by talentless accountants with eyes only for what else makes money.(BMW's, Duc(k)ati's , Crosstourers etc. I hated the beak in all of the other brands adventure bikes (although I liked it on DR800...) but I find it absolutely HIDEOUS on the new Beakbomination DL1000.
I have owned a wee, a vee, and now a KLV. I loved the looks and suzuki should have kept it similar to the Vee. Upgrade the engine so it goes like a TL, update the FI so it does'nt feel like a pepper grinder, USD forks, radial brakes that work , easily adjustable windscreen, a little less weight, some new plastics and thats the recipe for success.Anyone at suzuki listening????

+1.
No, Suzuki are not listening. They are too busy surviving, and so they came up with a half baked ugly duckling. They lost their edge completely. No innovation what so ever. I fear they have become the Schwinn of motorcycles - take a cheap formula that worked for the last 15 years and re-use infinitely.
