  • Please tell me it isn't true!

    Someone told me Honda owns 40% of SUZUKI!

    actually I believe it's kawi and suzuki that are tight with each other

      Kawa = suzuki

      I dont know about there road bikes but it is for there motocross bikes. One bike and the only difference is the cosmetic changes
      2006 749 Ducati and a 1998 TLR-1000 track bike

        Do you honestly think that Honda could own %40 of Suzuki and still let them keep makin' GSXR's? HOW much market share would they retain by killing that line? Puh-leeze.
        I've got a huge penis, You've got a huge penis, even Tim over there, yup you guessed it, huge penis. Good, now that that's out of the way, let's go ride

          Kawi and Suzuki are in a partnership

          Dont believe everything people tell you, but believe everything the TV says...

          TV is never wrong.

            It is indeed Kawa.
            And they have indeed produced the same MX bikes.
            Last thing I heard they're working on a road racer together!

            Hope it's V2 but it 'll prolly not come to that.

                      No!!! That's wrong. The TV lies to you. Only believe what you read on the internet.

                          It's common practice for japanese companies to have "interlocking" boards and own some stock in suppliers/competitors/distributors. 40% sounds excessive to me, though.

                            You need to wake up horkn-

                            <------------------------------that's not a quad

                            And besides, in the avatar you were talking about I was riding a honda....

                            I know, I know, a honda, but the EX is the best out of them all for stunting. But the V-Force is absolutely wicked-sounds kind of like a tiller, and you can ride some sick 1mph wheelies since it won't stall out-this weekend I was standing it up, stopping straight up, and then taking off again. And yes I know pics-they're coming, I got a digital camcorder for the birthday this weekend!

                            Oh and BTW-the suzuki kawasaki thing is an alliance-not a merger-they said at the announcement that it would not affect streetbikes (ie sportbikes/cruisers/tourers). Quads, dirtbikes, dps are fair game though.

                              ok, whatever. i knew you had ridden a v force, so.......

                              i did ride a prairie 650 v twin, and almostr bought it for may dad, but we went with the 04 sportsman500 HO....
