I didn't search for this because 2010 is too short, but what's the deal with new model V-Stroms? Catch me up on the news, please.
That makes a whole lot more sense. Thanks for clearing that up.The overstock refers to the general availability of full size Suzuki street bikes. V-Stroms are a tiny part of Suzuki's manufacture. It would be nice if they added the V-Stroms to the 2010 models in addition to the RM-Z450, RM-Z250, GZ250 and RMX450Z but Suzuki is only focusing on the big picture.
My dealer told me no 2010's because of too much 09 inventory, and he hasn't heard anything from Suzuki about 2011. He was worried that due to Suzuki's recent restructuring that they may pull out of the US for bikes all together, but that was his own speculation.Can anyone comment on this statement from my dealer, I was looking for a 650 all he had was a V and he said no model 10's but he was told the model 11's would be released in July or August.
Thanks for the comments.
I think there are at least two at Stubb's in Houston, saw them last week, one was black, one was copper.Just to let you know the only 09 wee's in texas are the used ones, my dealer did a check for me and came up empty handed. I had him check so I would know if I could sell mine.
The decision not to import 2010's into the US has little to do with the subprime mortgage problem or how banks are regulated. As you can read above, there is very little inventory of Wee's here. Even in this economy Suzuki still sells multiple times more bikes in the US than in Canada. If your wife's company is like most Canadian companies that import to the US, their business has more to do with relying on a weak Canadian dollar than on a robust US economy. With the Canadian dollar strong, that advantage is gone.Canada got 2010 VEE's and WEE's. Our economy fared quite a bit better then yours. We didn't have the bank crisis you guys did. Our banking system is very regulated which is a good thing. The company my wife works for sell's almost exclusively to the US and they're hurting big time.
