And still keep the entry level pricing ? Thats a dream for sure. For some the 650 is too heavy and too tall in the saddle.
Sure pick another bike if you don't like it. But none are of this style. However for some strange reason Suzuki continues to
offer the S 40 650 single that has been around since sliced bread. Markets change and they are not going to make a full of gift's
model and keep the price low. Afterall they want you to spend money after the sale on extra's.
There was a time when 350 to 400 cc bikes were built by every manufacturer in Japan , 2 and 4 strokes ,dirt, street ,enduro.
And the 1000cc bikes were where the limits existed. How times have changed. But it won't take away from the need for a
lighter more short people friendly version in an ADV bike. bigger in terms of engine size or horse power is fun sure but not
always better for everyone.
