A quote from someone above on this thread;
"Honda desperately needs to get it's head out of it's ass...."
I agree, but Suzuki are also a LONG way behind, all they have in the UK is the Suzuki Bandit 1250cc as their ONLY (large) touring bike, the V-Strom DL1000 has been dropped from the UK Suzuki range for over 3 and a half years now. So no great choice, pathetic really..!!!!!
Kawasaki/Yamaha/BMW/KTM are well ahead of the game etc....
