Word is a new chassis but same engine for the 250. Not even kidding...

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

As a Suzuki owner super bummed they aren’t improving the 250 motor after years of criticism...

Suzuki was the first brand to release their 2019 models. They’ve been out since 2010.

Is it ok that I am laughing on the outside, but crying on the inside?

You know they read all the ride reports and shootouts so it’s not as if they’re unaware. There’s only one explanation for their decision to continue to not upgrade the bike to keep pace with their competitors... it’s obvious it’s yet to hit them where it hurts: their bottom line. As long as they continue to sell, they’ll prob keep churning out the same package. As soon as they see a significant hit to their sales, you can bet they’ll get an upgrade out.

They are currently on the dealer floors....Just have slightly different graphics.

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....

Suzuki is presenting the 19s to the public in july. And the 250 will be all new and the engine will have a lot of upgrades. It wont be a radical new engine like the KX450 but it will be changed from 18, more power

Clear info is published on the fact Suzuki is and has been moving all production operations into one facility in Japan this year. They had production divided into 3 separate factories in 3 different cities, now, it becomes one. This has and will continue to delay release of the 2019 models. Honda had delays a few years back with introduction of the new 450R due to massive factory damage from a weather event.
It's still far from 2019, so no rush!

there's no solid info right now...
the 250 kxf 2019 has only new graphics (and it was supposed to have some updates)
so just be patient and don't trust everything you read!

Suzuki was bought by Harley. They are working on an XLS250 Slim and FXST450 Fat Boy.

No Signature.

Rich Taylor (long time Suzuki test rider on Matthes' show last night) said same same on 450 and new from the ground up 250. Chassis, suspension, body work, and motor upgrades. Says he's doing more testing, so the bike will probably be delayed a bit.

Kawi 250s are usually a year behind big brother 450, same with Yamaha and Honda. Why make significant changes for 2019 when 2020 will be an all new bike?

I've heard November-ish for the 250...

7/3/2018 9:33 AM

They should have one on display at Loretta's.

Long term loyal Suzuki owners must be getting impatient by now... all three of them.

I think pretty much everyone has moved on by now. Not because the bikes aren't good, but because Suzuki hasn't been giving the consumer what they want, which is more updates, more often.

So, no one's riding Suzuki anymore?

Ok. Got it.

How many hours have most of you guys ridden this year?
How many races?
How've you done?

Now, for every 20-30 hours:
How many parts have you replaced?
How many valve adjustments?
How long has your plastic lasted?
How does your bike handle?
How much have you spent on maintenance?

You see, I've got A LOT of hours in the new RMZ450 & it has been amazingly durable, dependable and...most importantly...
VERY inexpensive to operate.

The bike handles like a typical Suzuki...superb.
It turns like a champ in sand, hard-pack and ruts...again, typical Suzuki.
I'm jus' sayin'...

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

7/3/2018 12:11 PM

Are they attracting new customers or appealing to loyalists and bargain hunters these days?

I'm with you man. I bleed Suzuki and have never had a bad one. The '18 450 is the best bike I have ever had and yes, I do ride the other brands......but for some reason just have a hard time being a sheep.

Did I say that no one rides Suzuki anymore? No, I didn't. If you want to tell me that there is as many people riding yellow as ten years ago, you're delusional. Quote somebody else's post if you're trying to make a completely unrelated rebuttal with attitude. Been a Suzuki fan for a long time and have had plenty. "jus' sayin'...
