The article mentions "plus the following features unique to each model" but then never elaborates? Did a part of the press release get snipped?



While I'm here, when are we going to see some reports on the SV1000? For a bike that has been so anticipated, the press is strangely silent. Is Suzook just not bringing out the test models?

Re: Coincidence?

What? Yes, it is a coincidence. You see, every year is an anniversary for something. Next year will be H-D's 101st anniversary, Honda's 56th and Suzuki's 41st. Do you understand how this system works? It's been employed for quite some time now. Other examples include the 227th anniversary of the United States this year, Willow Springs 50th anniversary, (now thats something worth celebrating).

Re: Coincidence?

I agree with you on the Willow Springs comment (Yellow ST4 here).

I was referring to anniversary editions complete with special models, paint, etc. Yamaha is celebrating the 25th anniversary of a bike they don't even make anymore and painting the Road Star silver and slapping badges on it.

My congrats to Suzuki. They make some awesome motorcycles.

Re: Coincidence?

Yamaha was celebrating 25 years of making cruisers, not 25 years of making the XS650. It's no different than Suzuki celebrating 40 years of selling bikes in the U.S., or H-D celebrating 100 years of making motorcycles.

Re: Coincidence?

Well, actually HD's bikes bear a striking resemblance to their bikes of 100 years ago. Some even appear to still have a total-loss oiling system. (Just kidding.)

Re: Coincidence?

Don't forget the Royal Enfield "Indians" of the 60s.

Does that make it only 48 years of no production?

Maybe we could start our own country. We could call it The Roman Empire and claim that we're celebrating 4 thousand years of existence.
