Re: Suzuki files for bankruptcy 11/5/12

Suzuki's (the automobile division) simply were too highpriced and designed for seemingly only young guys who wanted to drift every corner. Their problem wasnt based on quality, but their marketing and advertising.

Nice to know theyre going to focus on their motorcycles now though. Maybe the sportbikes will get some huge much-needed advancements. Ive always been a Yamaha fanboy but still thoroughly enjoy and ride a Suzuki.

Ill admit i've seen sweet ones. However its hard to find one that's not stretched or slammed or chromed out the waazoo. Plus we're on an R6 forum... lol. Not to mention many, not all, are ridden by complete retards, and that sets the stereotype. I think we can all agree on stereotypes.
