The Suzuki S40 is a nice street thumper. There is a good forum for the Savage/S40. Here it is:

Read up about the cam chain tensioner and an easy mod you can do. Yours should be fine for quite a while, but knowledge about the issue is a good thing.
I used to ride a 2007 Royal Enfield Bullet. Geez, you'da thought I was riding a flaming radical chopper by the amount of interest generated about that bike every time I rode it. You have to allow extra time on any ride to talk to the bikers that will approach you asking about the bike.

I hope we get a Triumph thumper, and the new KTM. I like all the single cylinder dual sports and the Suzuki TU250 too. I've owned a lot of thumpers over 51 years of riding, and hope to get another one.
