  • 2004 Tl1000r!!!

    This guy who owns a Tiller on another board works at a big Suzuki dealership and said there will be a 2004 Suzuki TL1000R returning to the states. It will have revised graphics and colors............


    I know the TL died everywhere else except here in the States for 03'.

    No other changes than color/graphics right? Still 99% exactly the same bike as the 98 then.. Are they really popular in the US or what? Why do they insist releasing new ones every year in the US when they don┤t do it anywhere else? :dunno

    00 was the last year for us here in Sweden.

    Actually I think they should stop making new ones if they aren┤t gonna revise/upgrade them, it would be even more of a cult bike then.

      I wish they would improve the damn thing instead of changing the graphics. J they arent that popular here to be honest. Its just the nuts liek ourselves that love this bike!

            For all intents and purposes, Suzuki stopped R&D on the TL1000R in 1998. I think it's a valid assumption that, by this time, they've recouped all of their R&D costs, although that's open to argument. If enough people in the USA still want the TL (and why wouldn't they?) then, from a business standpoint, it makes perfect sense for Suzuki to keep making them. There's lots of profit.

                Whats sad is in the last 4 years NO MAGAZINE has included them in a twin shootout, Suzuki dealers don't promote them...they just set them out to sell them, and Suzuki has no desire to improve them


                It floors me that they would continue the TLR and not generate a SV1000R


                I also heard the DL1000 is chunked because of low sales numbers. Anyone heard that yet?

                  Suzuki need to learn a bit about marketing...

                  The DL is a solid bike, better than the competition. Yet, it rarly shows up in shoot out between the likes.

                      You have to be kinding.... surging ... backfiring ... weight .. power
                      handling ... all of these need attention on the TL. pretty sure there will be a nice new zx10 or gixxer1K in my garage next year.

                        If true, they probably realized they still have enough parts left over to do another years production.

                          SV1000R all that hard?

                          When you consider the differences between the TLS and the TLR you wouldn't think it would be all that difficult to develop the SV1000S into a full-fairing'd replacement to the TLR.

                          Oh well, maybe next year...
