Two of Yammie’s series of FJR1300 tourers will be on the way out for this year, though other bikes more capable of catering to a wider range of riders (such as the MT line) continue to be refreshed to meet emissions regulations.
We anticipate more to be tossed out as the brand’s goal of having their inventory boast 90% plug-in vehicles by 2050 gets a little nearer.
When Suzuki made the decision to bow out of MotoGP, we were a tad surprised, we’ll give you that. Suzuki’s not really come out with anything that truly drives toward the future as hard as the other three motorcycle manufacturers of the Big Four.
Now, with five out of Suzu’s 20 models (25% of their lineup) prepping to be gone by October of this year (the GSX250R being one of the bikes to say a final goodbye), we’re starting to wonder if Suzuki plans on leaning more intensely into the Swappable Battery Agreement with less in their lineup.
We don’t have any other information, apart from the knowledge that emissions compliance won’t be getting easier anytime soon.
Stay tuned for the rest of the bikes that will be discontinued for this year, drop a comment below letting us know what you think, and as always – stay safe on the twisties.
