Pretty good photshop if thats the case -

Note on the off-road bike -

Dual throttle cables
18" rear wheel
Different seat (and tank?)
ODO head and cable
longer exhaust
different side plates and air box
bikini skid plate
tail light / head light

I am curious, especially if it's FI

Looks like professional grade Photoshop to me. A lot of times when a company is releasing a new product, they will have industrial designers come up with conceptual drawings. In this case, they probably wanted to come up with a good look for the headlight, gas tank and rear fender and graphics.

The skid plate looks a bit fake to me.

the headlight looks pretty slick to me.

That pic is in the new Dirt Rider. Apparently it is still an unreleased concept though. Who knows what they are waiting for. I know of a few Suzuki supported off road pro's that have grenaded the 4 speed tranny numerous times out in the Dez. I think the market is there for this bike, but what do I know I'm just a racer.

If you mean finishing 2nd overall to James (fastsest mx'r on the planet)Stewart almost every time this season... then yes, I guess they haven't been too sucessful with it

OH yeah, and getting nearly every holeshot as well...clearly a failure.

you have to remember its not the bikes, its the riders on the bikes that make them so fast

Alessi isn't riding a stocker.

I wouldn't buy a suzuki if you held a gun to my head.

Why am I responding to 14 year olds?

Am I that bored?

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

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:
