Auto Expo 2008: Suzuki

Suzuki showed the second saddest of all two-wheeled Auto Expo stalls. If you entered at the centre, the left was all Vietnam. I mean, Access and Zeus and Heat. Urgh. Good bikes, but kind of under-speced, no? In the middle were the Biplane concept and the 2008 Hayabusa (which looks rather nice, I thought). The right side were the DR-Z450 Supermotard, lovely white-silver GSX-R1000, Suzuki B-King (monster), a Bandit and one scooter, the Burgman 400. Nope, nothing to show for it really. Suzuki, of course, have said that big bikes are coming. Fingers crossed. I'd tip the Busa and the GSX-R1000 as the bikes to watch for. Also, Suzuki will launch its 150cc class contender in April 2008. Again, I hope for their sake, its an India-ready bike, not a Vietnamese misunderstanding.

I love gixers. The Suzuki GSX-R1000's dominance are simple. Sublime, lithe ergonomics and handling, radical styling and full-on usable power. The bikes looks good too. Im thinking of buying one. gonna check out some bike insurance quotes to see how much this beast is gonna cost me to get on the road. then i'll have to sweet talk the wife into letting me have one.
