1996 Suzuki LS 650 Savage
Good for beginners or city drivers
This size of bike is really meant to be driven around town and not on extended highway trips. The drawbacks are the overall weight of the bike and maintenance issues. In cold weather or heavy rain, I would have a hard time starting it up. The bike stalled on me in traffic in a heavy rain. I also had a problem with an oil leak. The bolts on the head were stripped and it was never properly repaired. Because of its age, and the fact I did more highway driving than city driving, I had to trade it in and purchased a Yamaha V Star 1100.
This was my second Suzuki. My first was a 2009 Suzuki GZ250. I bought the 650 as a step up. I like the bike's handling and low seat height. I live in the mountains, and "The Banana" as my bike was called loved the curves.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
