New Suzuki Line Up

Recommended Posts

The styling is definitely a little bit different, in a bland sense.

If they firmly beat everybody else on price they may well be competitive.

Perhaps even just having unbeatable financing deals might be enough to succeed in the Thai market.

After looking at this line i dont think suzuki will be here very long imho.

Why do you think they are so successful in other continents then? Just wondering??

Great to see.

The Gladius might actually be a bike I'd consider upgrading to depending on how it rides in the city.

The Inazuma 250 could be a bit of a miss, it looks like an upgraded Tiger Boxer.

Definitely not an upgraded Tiger Boxer. Totally different bike, much better in every aspect. you can read the reviews online, so many great reviews.

I always used to think that Suzuki had the best engines/gear boxes. The flying kettle, GS 550, RG500 & GSRX 750, all bikes I had many years back now. These days I totter about on aging Sonic. I would considered a Raider if they appear in Phetch.

Not at all as they were in some type of bankruptcy in the usa not to long ago. My thinking is they are trying to expand in this market with a less then average lineup. I dont think the thais will be buying..

I wouldn't be stupid enough to bet against you!

I guess we will know in a year or 2 if your right.

With the Gladius a few cHanges makes all the difference. Especially ridding the bike of that monsterous silver plastic bit on the frame!

We still don't know any prices, or am i wrong? So its a bit early to speculate about success. I will buy a Suzi if the price is right and quality is good. And i guess many thais will do too. But we will see... i wouldn't bet either :)

if thai people are buying chinese bikes in spades, i dont see any reason why they woudnt buy suzukis.

Suzuki is one of the market leaders in Japan.

Thais are buying cheap crap. Suzukis are not cheap.

I always liked the gear shift feature. My Kawi I can never tell if I am in 5th or 6th & try to shift to 7th(non existent) The older Honda's had this feature also. If they offer a street fighter kit - I would definitely ditch the fugly plastics on the tank & give the bike a real paint job. I had several Suzi Q's & the Haybusa was a screamer!

The USA Suzuki car division filed for bankruptcy and ceased trading. The motorcycle operation worldwide has always been very profitable for Suzuki.

Seems like they are No.1 by volume in Japan.

Personally I've always seen less Suzuki than other brands on the streets, in any country.

I think that's great news. The Gladius is an excellent bike and looks good, but I saw the Inazuma 250 at the Motorshow and was very disappointed. It looked cheap and badly designed, as if the designer couldn't decide if he wanted it to look more retro or modern....and opted for both, badly.

The Rider is also an iconic underbone bike, super fast and powerful...and looks better than the Honda Sonic.

Can't say if their doing good but I am certain they closed about 15% of their motorcycle dealers in the USA. Maybe they were doing some preventive steps.
