One of the most durable dependable motorcycles I have ever owned!
Nothing! Unbelievable how mechanically perfect it still is at 42,000 miles! I don't abuse my bikes, but I ride them hard to get where I am going! Can't break it!
One of the best bikes I have ever owned! Best bang for the buck! Usually first year bikes have problems and bugs.. not this one! Good Job Suzuki!
I have been riding for 30 years and have owned many bikes.. street, dirt, you name it, I have rode it, tested it, cruised on it and worked on it, but I have never had a more durable machine!
Seating was a bit of a problem where comfort is concerned, but a gel pad insert sewn-in fixed that! With a low seat height, inverted forks, monster 130-90 front tire, it grips and corners exceptionally well! Not too dangerously powerful for even entry riders, but it still moves out good! Want a Reliable, Tough, Safe Motorcycle? Buy a VZ-800, you won't regret it!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
