Ok I thought I would jump on the bike vs bike bandwagon. Here in Canada they both MRSP for $9g. I have the wee strom and its a great bike, but if I was buying now I'm not sure if I would buy it again now that BMW has the new F650GS (Twin) coming out soon. The new F650 is lighter by 30lbs if I remember correctly and the fuel underneath the seat. The wee strom is top heavy and also heavier, but Suzuki makes tough bikes. I think HP numbers are comparable as well, but once again the F650 is lighter.
