I am in the middle of researching a purchase,

The yamaha, 100 lbs lighter, It is going to handle better, has a belt drive and a more managealbe rear tire, Newly updated front brakes and the 5 spoke rims compared to the 3 spoke which I thought looked out of place. However It is only Air cooled and From what I have read doesnt offer anything in the way of wind protetion for speeds over 60 mph. NOT To mention the CAN has got to go. The suzuki has liquid cooling a monstor motor 30 + more HP, Higher rev ceiling and I think it looks better. Draw backs are 100 LBs of extra weight to manage, SHAFT Drive combined with a HUGE rear tire make handling on un even pavement difficult. Cost stock is about the same. but the Yamaha needs some money thrown at it to deal with its inadequcies. I think The suzuki is the way to go as long as you can deal with Shaft drive and the Heft.
