I just read that Suzuki profits are more than a little down for 2010. Which is no surprise to me, since they did not release any new bikes for the model year of 2010 and very few new bikes for model year of 2011. I know the economy is bad, but one can't help wondering if this is this the begining of the end for Suzuki bikes!:eek: I like the bikes they make and would hate to see the company go under. So has anyone heard anything about what is going on with suzuki?

No problem. They just need to apply for a government bailout! In fact they can apply to two governments.:D

What I found was that Suzuki Motor Corp's profits are UP, especially car related sales profits. Motorcycle sales of large bikes in US and Europe are down but overall sales profits (worldwide) are up. They are selling plenty of bikes in markets outside of US and Europe. I don't think they are going anywhere, and I am glad.

There won't be any more bailouts in the US unless we get another republican president.

I just read an article in the Magazine, "Motorcycle World" it was a small article that said, Suzuki is pruducing less than 25% of the bike modelsn they normally. For 2011 they wil only make 10 models of bikes. The reason for the slow down, is the economy and still a glutt of 2009 bike yet to be sold in USA dealer showrooms.

Well thats the answer in a nutshell!

In 2004 the 805cc Volusia was the sweetheart of the bike journalists. It out-rated all the other mid-size cruisers. I bought one and and rode it for 40,000 miles in 6 years. The only changes they made were fuel injection, floor boards and a new name (Boulevard C50).

When I was ready for a new bike they were there with their 2004 1/2 bike. Wife was riding a 900LT by then and I had owned 3 Kaws in the past. It was easy to know where to go shopping.

Still...
