Summary:

Very nice bike!

Faults:

None what so ever.

General Comments:

The bike is awesome. I saw a lot of people talking about the comfort. I am a bigger guy, but not that tall, only 5'8", but I am very comfortable on the bike. The bars are almost perfect for my stature. I wish the controls were a little more forward, like the ones on my buddy's Shadow.

I am very impressed with the power of the bike. I raced my buddy's shadow, and he couldn't keep up. The bike was very stable at high speeds. I pegged the speedo at 120, and it felt like it had more.

Very nice cruising at highway speeds, between 70-80 mph, but I absolutely hate the location of the ignition - if you have any type of key ring on it, it will wear off the paint on the plastic side cover. And it definitely needs to be louder!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

You hit the nail on the head with the key ring and the pipes being very "tame". Other than those things, and the controls not being forward enough, I love my '06.

I had an 06 M50 with Vance and Hines "Cruzer" Pipes on it and the sound was fantastic. It was louder with the baffles in, than my buddies C50 stock pipes with the baffles removed. I think that the M50 is great.

I come come from a sport bike background. The only thing that I would improve would be better braking. At high speeds I feel like I'm landing a fully loaded 747.

I love this bike, I will pick shaft drive fuel injection over chain and carbs any day. The bike is a dream to ride.

I agree. I was originally looking at the Honda Shadow Spirit 750. But liked the mono rear shock and FI and shaft drive on the Suzuki. I have been well pleased with my 06 so far after putting over 17,000 km's on it.
