after this show expect it to be seen.
I beg to differ. The website is owned by Suzuki Global and the model featured is the production model, not the concept bike. This is not an uncommon marketing ploy in the internet age.
The AIM expo is a new venue, so who knows what's going to happen there. The world into will be most likely be in Milan in November, which is the big show. I would expect that if Suzuki is targeting the North American market heavily, then it will be unveiled at the AIM show, if on the other hand, they are not, then I would expect them to hold onto it until November.
