Hi Eric and welcome
Yes, well $11k is a bargain by any measure for a new 1200cc bike. Shall spare you my standard tirade about Suzuki NZ redevaluing every present ownerīs bike .....
Iīm a realfan of these machines, from several standpoints. Value for money is remarkable. Scottie (Wheeliemonsta)has got some pretty ambitious plans for hotting his up with cams and flat slide carbies etc, while Iīm reasonably happy with mine, given my style of riding and the bikes I grew up with. A few more HP would be nice and I think the gearing is too tall in 5th but itīs fast enough to get me into trouble as it is!!! But these things handle and brake well, and letīs face it, the bikes back in the 70s and 80s generally didnīt.But most of all I think theyīre beautiful to look at....all in the eye of the beholder of course, but very retro cum industrial cum minimalist or something. They look "staunch" as the Suzuki salesman so neatly expressed it. Hate the pipe but the Yoshimura pipe on Scottieīs bike is very very nice as well as gaining 10hp or so so thatīs probably on the priority list of things to change without breaking the bank.
Anyway, happy riding.
