Hmmm...the B-King in all black looks much better. I like its looks better than Kawi's big naked.

I'm kind of disappointed that the Busa didn't get an "all new" treatment, but I suppose it really didn't need it. The new body work seems to be an improvement.

Man, no offense to suzuki cruiser owners, but they are making some butt-ugly models in the Suzuki pen these days. I like the Volusia (or whatever the hell it's called now. Fabulous marketing idea in terms of changing the names to everything, by the way), but I think only Honda makes uglier cruisers. Kawi and Yamaha seem to put forth a better effort with the cruiser look.

It's interesting to me that Suzuki has nothing in the sport-touring segment. I dug around on their website and about the closest I could come might be a VStrom 1k with add on bags. The ST market seems to be working for Honda, Kawi, Triumph, and Yamaha. And those stupid "Boulevard" ads with the guy on his fake Harley being eyed by the chicks with their target-tats sticking out of their jeans make me ill.

Conspiracy!

You're aware that Suzuki and Kawasaki are having an alliance? Maybe the two have decided not to compete in certain areas. Suzuki keeps the performance V-Twins and Kawasaki gets the Sport tourers. Pat Buchanan hinted as much during his last meeting with Ross Perot at the last Bilderburger conference.

I remember hearing about that what..a year ago or more? They seem to be competing in almost every other segement though; Blvd. vs. Vulcan, 'Busa vs. ZX-14, Ninja vs. GSXR etc. I dunno, seems possible.
Remember, Suzuki had that lame MeanStreak rip-off for about a year and I think Kawasaki had a V-strom rip-off in their European line up for a season also.

Oh poof.

Aw, jeez, you guys are no fun. Go for the conspiracy I say. We all know how well businesses cooperate and would never take advantage over a competitor.

Ok, here goes. Kawasaki and Suzuki both have cheap 250hp machines that get 150mpg that they can make a profit on and still only sell them for $2500 a piece, but they know it will destroy the market so they have decided to shelve the models for another several decades while they allow for the current outdated models to sell because Honda (who actually owns every motorcycle company, which is why they no longer produce new models) wants to push out more outdated VFRs and RC51s with outdated engine development. All the while they get support funding from "big oil" contracts that encourage them to delay the already developed "future bikes" to continue to produce machines that get a third of the gas efficiency. Which is a direct link to why Microsoft allows operating systems to be released with security risks as the Chem Trails from jet airliners release chemical weapons on the public for testing and development.

How's that?

You didn't work Bush in there somehow, but I think you got the rest of them pretty good.

I thought it was obvious; Bush is an evil robot that was created by Harley Davidson and Microsoft just after HD went public back in the 80's. It was part of the agreement issued by Charles Schwab and a Swedish Prime Minister that had delusions of grandeur of resurrecting the Ace Motor Corporation an issue in a new ear of Indian Fours.

It's so simple, really.
