New Suzuki Line Up

Recommended Posts

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??
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..

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

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.

Their car making operation is a millstone around their neck and nearly brought the company to it's knees. They'd be better concentrating on motorcycles. Anyway, hopefully we'll see bikes like the Gixer and Hayabusa sold at more competitive prices here and maybe Yamaha will follow suit with the R1 and the new MT-09 :)

The more choice, the better.

But.... still number 1 on my, next new bike list is the Honda CBR 650 that is, if it's a 4 inline.

This bike is not even released in Japan, it appears to me these are just logical evolutions to the existing line for global markets.

Apparently the price would be 850K Yen = 270K Baht

To me nothing indicates these would be produced or assembled inTthailand. But certainly they can import it, in that case a reasoanble price could be Bt 280K + 100% import, 30% excise, 7% VAT.

Sorry I've posted on the wrong thread. I was referring to the Honda CB650R.

The tax would be on the landed price, not the retail price, yes? So that would be about 100.000 + 100% tax = 200.000 + 30% tax = 260.000 + 7% tax = 278.200 plus whatever AP Honda and the dealer add on, so 390.000 isn't out of the question.

With the Z800 costing 375.000 who is going to buy the Honda 650F?

Me. Although it'll be a lot cheaper than that.

That is not really possible. CBR1000RR in Thailand Bt, 800,000.

Assume the CB650F cost to be about one half of the CBR1000RR, will come to Bt 400,000, or a little below if they want to be aggressive in price.

It will be an imported bike, not locally built or asssembled, unlike the Kawasaki.

Then if not so, I will be happy to be proven wrong.

saw a Van Van yesterday in Bangkok commuting along with me.

Bike looks a combination of cuteness, coolness and ruggedness. Nice but 100 k thb is way to much unfortunately.

100k is not cheap....for how many cc?

But 220k for the Inazuma is about 200k more than I would pay for that bike! Seriously?
