Couldn't start the bike 2 days after I picked it up. The starter switch had to be replaced. The dealer was very quick in servicing the problem.
I recently retired from a Sales/Marketing position. When I was younger I rode a much smaller bike and always had my eye on owning a bigger bike, but never made the plunge. I looked at hundreds of used and new bikes for about a year and finally settled on the Suzuki C50SE, which I purchased new in June 2006.
The three things that sold me on this bike were: the shaft drive, fuel injection, floor boards, the heel/toe shifter and the comfort.
It came with the windshield, leather bags and backrest. Great value for the whole package!
Besides that, it is a great looking bike with lots of power and torque. When they see it, most of my friends think that I invested $20000+ in this bike.
I don’t keep track of the gas consumption, but I can go quite a while on the 15 litre tank.
I love this bike but after getting the feel of riding a big bike this summer, I am considering trading up to perhaps the Suzuki C90 or the M109R model next spring.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
