I passed on earlier the following information RE where the DL1050 (prototypes) will be displayed in Canadian bike shows. Key is MMIC shows:nuke - Thanks for the update. Any idea if the 1050 will be at the Vancouver show later this month?
Ahh, looks like a yes. Thanks Tom.I passed on earlier the following information RE where the DL1050 (prototypes) will be displayed in Canadian bike shows. Key is MMIC shows:
"All the shows Tom including Toronto. We attend the six major shows across Canada that are promoted by MMIC in Toronto that’s Feb. 21st to 23rd."
My just-updated currency converter shows $16,099 CAD at $12,094 USD.CANADA INFO
The Canadian website is difficult to read but the rep gave me a photocopied info sheet stating differences between the 1050a and 1050XT.
Only way to get manual adjustable windscreen height, handguards, centerstand, CRUISE CONTROL, all the electronic nannies, adjustable seat height, engine undercover, accessory bar (crash bars), 12Volt outlet (usb comes standard on all models) standard is to get the XT model (wire wheels), in Canada available in black, red/white and yellow. Side or top cases and heated grips are an optional extra. He suggested that Canadian availability should be in May. The 1050a is available in black, black/white and grey. Apparently there are a number of pre orders for the xt with red/white being the most popular colour.
in Canada XT costs $16,099. , 1050a costs $14,399.
And while it may be an accidental omission their is no mention of cruise on the Canadian website. (At least last time I looked.)Unsure what Canadian destination fees will be but don’t forget we also have 13% HST tax added in Ontario.
The bikes maybe equipped differently? We don’t get heated grips on our XT’s.
I have little doubt the cruise control can be ordered/installed by us for the other 1000 trims, now that they are ride by wire I'd imagine it's a pretty simple plug and play kit with extra switchgear. If not.....Suzuki will be getting a lot of calls to corporate with complaints, but they don't always do things which obviously makes sense for the consumers.The site has omissions, Tom. Factory rep confirmed only way to get cruise is with the XT model in Canada which also includes a bunch of electronic nannies, confirmed by the printed spec sheet he gave me. I may see if I can post the sheet in a couple of days..Ken
