Suzuki GW250 Inazuma Blog Welcome to the Suzuki GW250 blog! The GW250 is a webBikeWorld Project Bike for 2013. I bought this bike on a whim, more or less, when I discovered that the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS (preview) won’t be ready until Spring of 2014. By the way, despite the preponderance of the Suzuki brand …

Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure Blog Welcome to the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS blog! The V-Strom 1000 ABS is a webBikeWorld Project Bike for 2014. I eagerly anticipated the V-Strom after seeing a European version introduced at the 2013 AIMExpo dealer show (report) in Orlando, Florida in 2013.

The Suzuki GW250 Inazuma Somehow, I missed the U.S. introduction of the new Suzuki GW250 during the inaugural AIMExpo Show (report) in Orlando last month. The Suzuki USA reps and I talked mostly about the newV-Strom 1000 ABS (preview), which took star billing at the show. They also pointed out a revised Burgman and the Suzuki GSX-R1000SE (wBW …

Probably not…and I’m not convinced that the bike is better off with it. But hey — it sure looks cool! Here’s another one of these “How can I burn up some more …

Suzuki DR650 Shift Levers Not all DR650 shift levers are created equal! Who thinks about shift levers? Not me. If you added up all the time I have spent thinking about this subject over the course of my entire motorcycle career — which spans more decades than I care to think about — you wouldn’t …

Suzuki “Marine”, “Extreme” and “Golf” Concepts November 13, 2011 – OK, here’s a bit of fun for you.
