Have Suzuki just pulled the carpet from underneath Honda with a new adventure bike?

June 11th will be an interesting date.

I really wanted a CrossRunner but ?11,000 was just pie in the sky for me.

With the build quality of Suzuki not a chance!

Build quality?

Don't see that as a problem...... Look how many riders buy BMUU!

Hopefully it won't be a tarted up V-Strom !

    mm    not  so  sure           
whats  the news    on  suzuki  chaps      ..they have been very  quiet     

         i  speak as i  find  and my  dl650    has been   a  really  smashing bike   ..i  use it  for  work all year  round    ...57000     mile in three years    on a few   changes of halfords oil       ..the engine feels  as new       .....   
   i  paid 3600  quid for it   three years ago     ...   it   is  outstanding value for money     

                  the sv650   engine  is  a  real  gem   ..     i  have  wondered if they could  rework it  to   750    and   stick it in a   proper adventure  bike chassis   similar to the tenere      ..that woiuld be well cool     

      the new tiger  is  nice    but  far to rice burner for  me      ...

                           
you must have been flying  cos i was going real fast when i passed you??

I can still do all the things I could when I was 21, but now it is with less teeth.

I hope you didn't actually pay for an MCN!   Please say someone who didn't know any better gave it to you...
My imaginary friend thinks you've got serious problems.

I made the mistake of purchasing MCN for a few weeks but then saw the light - never would I ever purchase a copy again.  Absolute rubbish (as is their website)

The problem is that they have the UK market to themselves - they have no need to try to do better.

At least MCM (http://www.motorcyclemonthly.co.uk/Current-Issue/ enables you to read their current issue online for free by selecting the "Read Free Online" option on the left hand side.
