Cool, they got rid of the 'scared cat' headlight surround!
Cool, silver motor!
Cool, no beak!
Cool, available in white!
Crap, black wheels!

Bwahahahahahahaha omg, FAIL!!!!!! Same bike, different plastics, newly tuned motor, less fuel capacity, and they shaved 10 lbs.

There is no doubt in my mind that this bike will be equally as good as the original DL650, but seriously? Why invest money on a remodel when you're going to keep the same platform? Suzuki, you're going to get left behind by the competition.

Bold new graphics, essentially.

I didn't think it were possible, but it's even uglier than the previous gen.

New gauges, smaller tank (4.4 Gallons) and little bit lighter weight.

I do like the updated look though.

The tank looks like a molded item with outer body color trim panels. I say look for a larger fuel tank from the Suzuki accessory catalog.
