Why doesn't Suzuki just do it?
As I've acquainted myself with the various farkles and modifications that seem to appear on everyone's bike--whether Wee or Vee--I can't help but wonder why Suzuki doesn't just add them in the first place. I understand that the aftermarket companies need the business but small things like an adjustable windshield bracket (most common is Madstad), a 12V accessory plug, or even just larger grips can't possibly be out of the realm of possibility. Seems to me that adding these things in the first place would increase the positive reviews of the bike in the first place leading to more sales for Suzuki. No?
