I have heard more than once that Suzuki is going to discontinue the DL 1000 or make radical changes. It would seem silly to retool for a short run bike... of course only time will tell.

I was speaking with this guy in a pub the other day. Anyway it turns out that his ex is now shacked up with a guy whose brother once dated a girl who did the office cleaning in the Suzuki R&D facility. It seems that she can read Japanese perfectly and one night she was "straightening" some papers on a desk when she happened to see the answer to this exact question.
She won't say what she saw and she breaks out in a sweat and screams about "Ninja revenge" every time anybody asks.

The answer above is as sensible and as informed as any that you are likely to get to your query at this stage. Treat it as one of life's little mysteries.

I was told the 1000 will not meet the new European emmission rules and is up for a "total redesign"..........Not sure whether this means engine redesign or entire bike redesign...........But I got this straight from the cleaning ladies sisters uncles father..........

Suzuki feels that the 650 is a starte bike for total n00bs or ancient returning graybeards, and consequently added the ABS feature so that the poor riders would have a safety net. The other side to that argument is that riders of the 1K are skilled enough to know that all problems are not solved by crushing the brake lever and praying to God! :D

The 650 could meet the upcoming European emissions laws with small modifications so was the easier platform to convert. The 1000 will need more changes so I guess it is taking an extra model year to design.
