Suppose Suzuki would make a revision of this bike, what sh/could be improved?

To me:

  • A small light to indicate when to switch gear (to get optimal consumption)
  • Default tank pad
  • Shorter ignition key
  • Rear metal handlebars
  • a higher optional wind screen (as default Suzuki accessory)

    Not relevant at all since this bikes consumption is already very low
  • Default tank pad
    U have a million tank pads on the market but ok
  • Shorter ignition key
    Not relevant
  • Rear metal handlebarsh
    Not relevant
  • a higher optional wind screen (as default Suzuki accessory)
    This I agree it should be a little higher

I would add this:
Better running at low steady rpm
Steering damper
Otherweise I think the bike is greeeaaaat!! :D

Stickers are the first thing to go.... I also remove dealer stickers from cars as soon as they are delivered!

The first priority for me is always a radiator guard and a fender extender.
Then, if available, a hugger extender, especially if the tail end has been shortened.
I favour a little practicality before fashion but that's probably down to my age.:nerd:
The only thing I can say about the key is it would be a good means of self defence clenched in your fist. It's the biggest I've ever seen.:eek:

I'd also like a small alarm led when the parking lights are turned on. I triggered mine accidentally without noticing... .

The exhaust part underneath the engine is visible from one side and looks rusty/dirty. It's also quite huge.
Something a little smaller with a nicer finish would fit better this +10k bike

Just had a few email exchanges with a knowledgeable fella from HyperPro when I enquired about a steering damper. He said the bike didn't need one and that front springs and rear shock will eliminate the head shaking the bike has under acceleration. He also said a streetbox kit will only cost £20 more than a steering damper and will transform the bike no end.
