Dawg, good point. Most of the bikes on the list were in response to something else on the market that was similar.
Another thing. If you look back at Honda, you will see page after page of fails. Up to, and including, present time.
I dont currently own a Suzuki, but I always admired their not making mistakes....Other than the sv650...
SV650 is an amazing hit that they destroyed when it turned into the Gv650 labia, or something like that.
