  • Guys it's official!

    This may have already been said, but I just wanted to insure that everyone knew. I talked to my friend that owns a Suzuki dealership, and it is a DEFINATE....the TL's are gone, and so are the SV's. No tricks up their sleeve, it is true, they are gone for good. Suzuki's reasoning is that they want to free up room in their lineup for new bikes, although they will not be released this year. Sorry guys...

    if the SV's were gone...why the SV series notice on Suzuki's site?
    Sorry...but the SV's are still here.

      I agree....I bet the Sv's stay around. We all knew the TL would be gone it was just a matter of time!

        I think the only question regarding the SV's is whether or not there will be an SVR.

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

          No way Suzuki would drop the SV right now, they sell tons of em.
          Not to mention the new 1000 and 1000S just came out last year. How many models have you seen dumped after just one year?

              If this threads message is true.........then we've had six remarkable years of a bike left unchanged or updated, except for new yearly paint schemes. Plus a semi-cult following, namely us. We've enjoyed a rare run, of a fine machine.
              It's a sad day, boys. Long live TL1000R. Hail successor SV.
              Keep riding 'em.

                all of them. There is no way that Suzuki would drop the 650 after its hot sales and current redisgn, nor would they ditch the brand new 1000 and say on their site that they are "coming soon".

                No more TL is not suprising, and the SVR is not likely to happen this year from the way things look

                  Well I guess this means we officially have out of production bikes heh! Soon they will be classics and we will tell our kids about the good ol days of TL's. Long live the TL and hurry up SVR!

                    Don't kill the meesenger...I specifically asked about the SV, and they said it is gone. Even my friend that is a dealer said they thought it was dumb because it is a good seller.

                      don't give up so easily. The TLR was a midyear addition to the '98 lineup.

                            No company puts this....
                            "The 2004 line of SV bikes are coming.
                            Please check back soon."
                            On a discontinued bike....

                              Ok, here's the deal...you can't really say its offical when you're source is a dealer...i've met some dealers who don't even know if a bike is an I4 or V2 so...

                              now maybe you could say its official when there's actually a suzuki press-release.

                              as for the SV's coming soon,
                              why say coming soon on a discontinued bike...oh wait, maybe its "coming soon! SV's discontinued!!"
