Your mistake. I took that chance this weekend and liked it a lot. But I realized once again how smooth the powertrain on my Wee is. PS. I just noticed that you ride 1000. In this case, I guess you're right. This bike is much nicer then the older model. ( I guess i can juge here since I used to own 2 Vee). It feels much lighter and nimble, way better suspennsion, gear box, breakes, power delivery and lot of other extras and on dashboard infos. Maybe in 2 years or so...at list in my case.

standard suzuki, its will stop the road derbs and gravel but dont slam it into the ground

the crash bars are some heavy built suckers if you put it down hard enough to bend these check your frame for cracks

the factory bags are better than the old ones and fit in tight to the bike but they are not real roomy and are shaped weird
