Oddest ones on the list IMO are:

RV90 VanVan (1972-81)


GSX400X Impulse (1986)

This is true.
looking back at it now compared to current streetfighters, the GSX400 doesn't look that old after all.

If Suzuki used to be such an innovator, when do you think they lost that edge?

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.
