2013 model info

The standard model is shown in metallic blue or solid white. The Adventure model is shown in a dark metallic gray. No other changes listed. Price is to be announced and first availability is shown as February.

The bags on the adv model look unchanged.

The website beat the dealers meeting. Just 2 different colors it looks like, nothing has changed. Bold new price?

2005 Suzuki SV1000R, 1985 Yamaha XT608N, 2012 Suzuki DL650AL2, over 20,000 miles already!

Why can't the US get the same colors/options as the rest of the world? Why do they hold back versions from us? And the fact we have an unhealthy love affair with cruisers is no excuse.

Blue or white for the Basic and gray for the Adventure. For a moment, they had $8399 up for the Basic and $9999 for the Adventure. If that holds, it will mean an increase of $100 and $200 respectively.

It's not solid white. It's pearl glacier white, which seems to be a white with a blue metallic pearl in it.
