Looks like the new models are now listed on the US website.

And...it looks like absolutely no change. Not even colors.

Though, when I check out the DL650 (non-ABS), it doesn't show the 2010 yet. Only the ABS model.

'09 VStrom DL650A - Sold.
'04 Suzuki Burgman 400 - The wifes
'08 FJR1300AE - Miss Chievous.

Interesting that there is no listing for a DL 650 non ABS. Guess they decided to consolidate models.

04 Wee with all kinds of excess crap..

You need to click the "2010" tab at the top of their main page and it shows the 2010 models that have been posted.

Maybe they haven't got them all posted yet?

I did.

So, either they left out the update for the DL650 (don't think so, since most every other bike is listed), or as AppGap suggested...they've cut the non-ABS version.

You can now only buy your brand new DL650 in grey and with ABS.

'09 VStrom DL650A - Sold.
'04 Suzuki Burgman 400 - The wifes
'08 FJR1300AE - Miss Chievous.

The K10 looks the same as my K7 except my wheels are black (nicer). And it looks like the US market is going the same way as the CDN market...ABS only. not a bad thing IMHO

DL650A K7

I found the non ABS models. They aren't even changing the colors. The same orange and silver as 2009.

DL-1000 L8
DL-650 K5 red(122K)
09 DRZ400

Where did you find the non-ABS US models. Not that I am turning in Pegasus, my 2006 Wee. I might finally reach 15,000 miles at the end of this season. Yeah, I ride alot, but on slow speed roads so low miles. :rolleyes:

2006 V-Strom 650 Pegasus
Its either: the journey, the destination, or both. Just remember to have fun.
Previous bike: 2000 Kawaski Vulcan 750 - traded for V-Strom

I'm just amazed they keep the bike alive as I doubt they sell that many. They are probably still working off parts from a production run a few years ago and they are waiting to use up the stock before discontinuing it. Each year they just produce new plastics and expend no extra cost or energy. And now they don't bother changing the plastics. The end is probably near with such little effort put into the bike. You have to admit it at least makes you wonder about that. The sad thing is following that the after market parts will dry up pretty fast. When and if they kill off the bike I'll seriously consider buying a new one for the long haul as there aren't many equivalent bikes for big guys out there. It might be a good bike but here in FL it is crotch rockets or cruisers and they don't stock much of anything else since they don't sell.

That's under the 2009 tab. The 2010 tab does not show them, and if you do find the 2009 DL650 Non-ABS, it only shows the 2009 tab, not 2010.

'09 VStrom DL650A - Sold.
