Waiting for 2011 black Wee - need help

I put in an order for a black 2011 Wee the first of the year here in Boise Id.
Been waiting a month now and today I got a call from the sales guy at the
local dealership and he told me that Suzuki is not producing many bikes this
year. That in fact there is no black 2011 Wees in the country. If anyone has
seen any in the states could you tell me what area and dealership so I could
relay this info to the sales dude. Thanks

I just want my new back shiny bike.

I've yet to see a 2011 black wee on the forum. There's been a few white ones.

I sat on one in Hilliard, OH last Saturday. They had just gotten it a couple of days earlier. Sharp.

Sorry to rub salt in any waiting-wound but your salesman might be giving you a line, we just had a new Stromtrooper sign up here who is the proud owner of a spanking-new 2011 Black DL650 - so they do exist. Here's his intro thread in the "Stromtroopers!" section:

https://www.stromtrooper.com/stromtro...-virginia.html

Picture is on page 2 of the thread, damn looking bike, I'd say almost worth the wait...good luck!!!!

He wants to sell you a bike.


You want a white one.


He doesn't have a white one.

Thumbs up black 2011

Just saw a black Wee just north of Austin at Ct Power Sports in Georgetown TX. I must say they look GREAT in person. Very strong.

IMHO If you catch a sales person in a lie, move on. You'll be better of in the long run.
