Question 2010 Wee Strom

Has anyone heard when the new Wees will be out? There seems to be a shortage of ABS models nearly everywhere. I can't figure out why Suzuki is "rationing" these models as they seem to sell out right away and finding a used one is nearly impossible.

Future Strommer?

2010 Wee Strom

Last year I started looking for a used ABS wee in the middle of September. Found a few but they wanted sticker. Again, why does Suzuki not make a ton of these and in all the colors that they are going to offer for that model year? I finally ordered an 09 around the first of October, got a deal, and got delivery in early November. Unless you live in one of the warm states, I would not recommend doing this for it was hell having a new bike in the garage and not being able to ride it. If I had it all over to do again, I would order in early spring.

Probably the same as every other year.
The models will be announced at some stage in September and will start flowing into the system soon after than depending on Suzuki's production schedule. There is nothing new or unusual about the current lack of stock situation it simply reflects that fact that both Suzuki and dealers will be carrying far smaller inventories than they did a couple of years ago.

Here's the scoop. And this is pure gold, and you can take to the bank. I heard it from a guy who heard it from a guy whose cousin's brother in law's cousin knows a guy, who has a sister married to a guy whose brother's wife's cousin has a friend who is married to a woman whose aunt's brother in law's son knows someone who works at a Suzuki dealership. The new Wee will be a lot like the old Wee, only more expensive, and in different colours.

I believe that person is now a former employee rather than a current one.

When I bought mine a few weeks ago Cycle Sports in Salem had one ABS in stock, the dealer in Hood River had two in stock, and Beaverton Honda had two in stock. Have you tried any of them?

Are you saying they had 2010s? That seems unlikely. They were almost surely 2009s.

No, they were 2009s. The OP indicated a shortage of ABS models, I assumed he meant that he couldn't find an 09 ABS and was looking forward to the 2010s coming out so he could hopefully find an ABS.
