Superb bike


Nothing really wrong with the bike.

Regular changes of consumables.

Just a blown regulator, replaced with new very fast due to a good Suzuki dealership in Bulgaria.

Eats tires quite rapidly due to V2 engine characteristics.

General Comments:

Serious muscle bike. Grin factor 10! :) Really fun to ride. Good MPG. Cheap maintenance.

Best combination of Italian style with Japanese power plant.

This bike is addictive. No matter about the poor aerodynamics, I have done quite a few long distance travels.

The sound is awesome. The design is superb, and people tend to stop and have a look at it when parked.

Highly recommended bike!!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
