What happen to SuZuki ?

Recommended Posts

Just watched the 2021 VitalMX 250 shoot out was surprised or maybe not surprised that Susuki is not even in the line up?  Why?

 I guess they are the first brand to begin minimizing they're off-road line of bikes because of poor sales, I hear Kawasaki isn't far behind. On a brighter note, Suzuki just won the Moto GP title on their road racing machine

i wish they would reenter the dualsport market with a new model or 2, mabye update the drz 400. they used to dominate that market in the 90s. the dr350s was better then the the Yamahs XT 350 and the XR 650l for offroad oriented ds riding. they were reliable as well.

I dunno about poor sales.  I worked at a dealer and they couldn't get any bikes fast enough as of a month ago.  Street, dirt, enduro, adventure etc. all has multipage wait lists of people who had a deposit down and were waiting for bikes to show up.

That was the case at my dealer too. Before that they were so so, and after this free time thing ends I predict a market crash.

DB I think you missed the point of the title completely. There was a message there.

There was a message in my post as well. The message was. Have some bloody respect :D

Suzuki has been a major contributor to our sport. I think that needs to be remembered, and respected 😉

My two favourite Japanese brands. Kawasaki and Suzuki. KTM is already dead to me. Life sucks 

 

It did go over my head though. I still don't get it tbh lol.

suki,,,,think about it. Suzuki sucks is the implication to me. I do have respect for Suzuki and hope they survive as part of the scene. But in recent years they have shown no "soul"(offroad) and many of the faithful are very disheartened,,,and maybe disgusted.

You didn't read the description.

 

 

"Unfortunately, the Suzuki RM-Z250 was omitted because the unchanged 2021 model was not in the country at the moment."

Oh the Answer thanks. ....  lots of unchanged bikes when shoot out time of the year happens prolly more to it than that. I expect to see the total collapse of them in the future and the days of the RMZs will be a thing of the past. So hang on to em they will be collectors items “some day” 

     I corrected my spelling error for all the purest SuZuki fells out there. SORRY geeZe.
