Suzuki you disappoint me
« on: January 09, 2020, 10:03:23 am »
So it's not enough that the new rumoured DR Big turned out to be a tarted up Vstrom. No replacement for the DRZ or DR 650 only rehashed new graphics. For the last 8 years or so have made no improvements to their RMZ motocross bikes and consistently ends up bottom of any off road shootout. I think Suzuki has abandoned anything that involves proper dirt. And now the biggest blow of all their favourite son for so many years TP number 199 has given up on them as well and switched to KTM  :( Shame on you Suzuki, I loved my DRZ but you suck.

Most of the Japanese manufactures moved away from 2 stroke despite it being the worst thing ever. :'(

Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki leaving only Yamaha to sell two strokes. :o

The European manufacturers like KTM, Husaberg ,Husqvarna, Beta, Sherco etc all showed the emissions control monkeys and greenies the finger and hence we still have two strokes available which could have become extinct by now had they not taken that bold stance way back then. :thumleft:
