Il never buy suzuki after having two bad experiences with the brand, bikes and outboards.

Note on the off-road bike -
Dual throttle cables
18" rear wheel
Different seat (and tank?)
ODO head and cable
different side plates and air box
bikini skid plate
tail light / head light
I am curious, especially if it's FI

The skid plate looks a bit fake to me.
the headlight looks pretty slick to me.

you have to remember its not the bikes, its the riders on the bikes that make them so fast
well, i've never seen a racer...no matter how good.... finish a race WITHOUT a bike. SO teh bike has just a little to do with it IMHO. ON top of that the previous poster said
didnt suzuki try fuel injection on the bikes but they were not having great success with it at the track?
He implied that the FI system was unproven, which infact, is not true.
I think getting most of the holeshots and finishing on the podium in nearly every round constitutes success... but what do I know.
BTW I don't ride a Suzuki, I rade a WR, but competition is good. Drives down prices (to some extent), and breeds innovation (Like FI and e-start). You'll learn about it in a couple years in economics:prof:
