Will there be a redesign of the 650 ?

Wondering if we might see a redesign of the 650 in 2015 ?

Cheers

Ride safe

kinda doubt it, maybe some upgrades, but they just redesigned(restyle?) it 2 years ago. they will probably see how the new 1000 sells.

It took 9 years to redesign the previous generation. And 12 years to redesign the 1000.

Do it! I would be surprised if they redesigned it any time soon.

Good move. Maybe you're not aware that the '13 is the only the 2nd year of the the "new" model 650.
I saw a great deal on an '11 model when the '12's were already out, could have gotten a good deal on one as they were moving them out (it was last November) but the earlier model was so proven, I really like the old styling, analog gauges, the bike was already farkled with stuff I would choose - and of course, it was a good deal, money-wise. I could have afforded a new one. I just couldn't justify spending the extra money. I've put almost 13,000 smilin' miles on my bike in the past 11 months.

My point is, DON'T WAIT! My '11 is a great bike and I'm sure the newer model 650 is even better (if that's possible). Life is short. There are just too many great rides.
GO FOR IT!!

I am thinking there will be a redesign and it will be the 650 in the 1000cc bike. I cant see them having two vastly different bikes under the same model name.

Redesign would really depend on sales. I personally hope they wait another five years so that Mine doesn't look dated. Hoping to keep her for awhile yet. There are some very seductive machines out there, but for the price the Glee is still a great buy and allows you to spend money or invest in other areas.

Bought my 2013 DL650 last week. Until the end of October Suzuki is offering the Adventure side cases, mounting racks, and mount only for the matching top case. Hope this helps with a buying decision.

Umm isn't that just the adventure model? I bought the 2012 Adventure a couple months ago with the 0% deal. It came with the racks, side packs and top mount. Also with the crash bars. Think thats all that comes on the special "Adventure" deal....
