Few pics from NYC Bike show

My buddy just texted these, so I know he's not driving, LOL.
I love that 650, except for that funky looking muffler set up, but it will be awhile, before I get one. Sitting on 5 bikes now, so something gotta go.

Suzuki really needs to hire some designers, that yellow scheme with the busy graphics and the gold wheels looks like a creature ate 5 different motorcycles and puked this up!

The overall yellow/gray/black color scheme isn't bad. That screaming yellow zonker of a V-Strom logo makes it look more like a kid's toy than an actual bike.

And gold rims? Yeesh. Has Suzuki decided to target pimps as part of their new marketing campaign?

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of colored seats on a day to day bike, but I can appreciate how they can look on a display bike. It IS a lot of yellow, though

Those are the same color rims on the DRZ400SM but at least the SM has matching paint.
