Adventure version

Is Suzuki shipping the Adventure version yet? I'm in the wannabe stage w/ my current bike on the market. Haven't seen the Adventure in dealerships or advertised online yet so I was wondering if they're around yet?

Adventure Bags?

The bags on the adventure model don't make sense. They are way too small for "adventure" riding or for just touring for that matter. What else does the adventure model have besides a larger windshield and engine guards that would make it worth !2 or !3 hundred more. Buy the standard model and put what you want on it for cheaper. Mainly, the bags don't make sense.

I chose the Adventure model for several reasons:
1) Black is my favorite color for a motorcycle
2) I like the size of the bags for my use & how the bike looks w/o them
3) I like the other stuff they include the with the ADV Model
4) My dealer is only charging me $1,000 more for the ADV. Model

As of Friday, my dealer is still saying "end of April/ first of May.

I was originally going to only consider the SE version but changed my mind as I like top loader better...
But, if the SE package works for YOU, that is the way to go.
IMHO, this integrated package IS a pretty good deal at a grand.
I am going out today for a look as a local dealer has one of each in stock.
Who knows...I may change my mind AGAIN!:biggrinjester:

Can you post pics of the adventure model when you go to the dealer, particularly the sidebags, i thought I read somewhere the left side was 30 litres and the right side was 27 litres...

My info indicated that the left bag was 29L and the the right was 25L. I can verify that the frickin’ things are TINY!! My suggestion would be to wait until aftermarket bags are available if you’re not in a rush.

Also, in terms of the ADV or ‘SE’ model, here in Canada, Suzuki sends the base model bike to the dealers and has the dealer add the extra accessories to make it an ‘SE’ after the fact. Don’t know if that’s the case in the U.S.
