The article says, "possible new headlight style". Do you think Suzuki caved in to my idea of using the Buell Ulysses headlight like I have done on my version of the Strom?
That outline is way to street bike oriented for me I hope that it's just an artist being given a job rather than a real representation of the new bike.Here are the images they are showing.
Afraid of change or something? You seem pretty biased against it with really no information at all yet. Obviously a 19" front? It's not obviously anything - if we assume that the render is sitting on level ground the only thing we can tell about the wheels is that the front is much bigger than the rear, as you can barely see a tiny bit of rear in the lower-left of the picture, and maybe a third of the outside-diameter of the front in the lower-right - without a scale can't put any dimensions on either though. There is no suspension drawn at all, no point making assumptions there. Same with no handlebars drawn at all, which makes anything related to ergos just an assumption as well. And though the one in the render is much larger, the detail on the side of the fairing does kinda remind me of of the little plastic bit at the bottom of the DL1000 fairing.That outline is way to street bike oriented for me I hope that it's just an artist being given a job rather than a real representation of the new bike.
If the bike looks anything like that kiss "more dirt worthy" goodbye. It's obviously a 19" front wheel with minimal suspension travel and the ergos are road/touring biased rather than road/dirt. The side of fairing near the engine looks like a Concours.
+1I'm totally excited about it :thumbup: Keep the same ergonomics & dual sport capability but with better brakes/suspension, and 800cc displacement. Play right in BMW/Triumphs back yard but for 25% less. I would buy one. I'm so excited to hear more.
It seems to me that this looks vaguely like the RF900 that they produced decades ago. It was a world beater for sure.Looks like the same designer that designed the Katana body work. I hope the rendering is quite accurate as the value of my Vee will increase tremendeously.
