  • New Suzuki Bikes For 2004

    All that care to hear this I just got off the phone with a good friend of mine at Canandaigua motorsports. This is a dealership outside of Rochester NY and asked him what all the news is for the suzuki lineup. By the way he is the sales manager there and his words were as follows.

    Suzuki has no good new products this year there is some updating of headlights and other bullshit but otherwise all is the same. He mentioned something about a 1600 Marauder that is new but all else is status quo with just some minor changes.


    SORRY BUT when the SV link comes up on the web site it will look exactly the same with possibly different colors.

    Now that I have said that what about that new Yamaha R1 with 180 HP?
    I'm so slow I think I'm first!!!!!!!

    The new gsxr600 looks pretty trick and seems to have been seriously updated (not just new colors). The 1000cc superstock class should be fun to watch this year with the new R1, cbr, and zx. But I think the gsxr1000 will still be on top.

    If it doesn't make it go fast, stop fast or turn fast, it doesn't have it.

      The longer the site goes without an update the more I tend to agree with you. Not likely will we see the SVR this year I'm afraid. But you never know. Stranger things have happened.

          sounds like your buddy was fulla shit, cause the new 600 and 750 look pretty zesty and are sporting more than cosemetic changes. I wasn't one to cry SVR, but the sv650 are probably due for a make over as well...sounds like a pretty good model line up to me, TLR or no TLR

              I think the 750 will only have cosmetic and minor changes to the bike. I dont think the 750 class will be that important in the scheme of things this year. Also the 600 is only getting small updates (Looks) but I bet next year they will let it all out. Anyway we will see when teh time comes

                nad you're basing this on what??

                suzuki can't afford to not upgrade the 600, since kawi, yamaha, and honda, all came out with brand new bikes. The picts have been released...radial brakes are visible...do you care to keep yapping about cosemetic only changes By all means you're welcome to, but i think radial brakes count as a signifigant performance change, but just in case that's not enough, how about the new frame design? Oh that's right, that's cosemetic as well huh? Its ONLY the entire chasis. Suzuki must have gotten distracted after that, because surely they'd only change the frame and brakes, and leave the rest the same....yeah that makes sense

                But you're right, underneath all the new skinz and aluminum they're the same bike from last year

                  Crashtd, do I detect a note of sarcasm? Usually you reserve that level of disgust for SDBob, if you look closely at the photo on Suzuki's website you can clearly see the usd forks AND the radial brakes on the 600. The engine has (according to Suzuki) been updated as well. I have also heard rumors of a limited ed. 750rr......... but who knows
                  Stupidity is like chlorine for the gene pool.......

                    crash, i think you are forgetting about the seat warmer button that has been added to the new gixxers too (zuki realized how much us TL owners love that feature)

                      1. the new Gixxer 6 has a new motor (well, highly upgraded), inverted forks, radial brakes and according to Suzuki more HP. I'd say thats a major improvement, in addition to the new look.
                      2. The 750 also got an engine re-do and new looks and weighs in just 5 lbs heavier than the 600. Radial mounted brakes,new frame also!

                        yeah, the sarcasm meter was higher than usual in that post...i'm fulla piss and vinegar lately

                        the basic jist was to to look at the pictures of the bikes and you can SEE the changes mechanically

                        just wanted to say the old , use your head

                        don't even get me started about the folks who think a new 1k is or was coming out!!!
