2008 Suzuki XL7 Limited

2008 Suzuki XL7 Limited

The all new Suzuki XL7 Limited is getting rave reviews around the net for it’s functionality and what you get for your money.  A base line Limited model XL7 can be had for just over $27,000, which is a bargain for how much vehicle you actually get.  It’s roomy and the potent V6 boasts being able to tow a fairly heavy payload.

The only downer is that the transmission doesn’t jive too well with the engine.  This means that those looking for a Green crossover, should probably look elsewhere, since gas mileage will suffer.

New Suzuki SV650

New Suzuki SV650

Back in the day I had one of these torque monsters (relative to it’s size) and it was a phenomenal bike to drive. I couldn’t bring myself to adopt the Harley type bikes, nor did I particularly enjoy the high pitched whine of a crotch rocket, but the Suzuki SV650 made a nice compromise to both.

It’s an entry level bike, being the first big boy you may wrap your legs around, but allows for plenty of room for growth. I enjoyed mine for several years before finally retiring to sports cars, but I still miss tearing around town and long winding roads. Yes, I’m being nostalgic, but just looking at the SV 650 makes my heart race again, although I had the slightly more attractive SV650S model. 😉

Suzuki SV650

Pros Easy to manage, ideal first ‘big’ bike and far more comfortable than its half faired brother. They sound the business with aftermarket pipes as well

Cons Maybe physically small for some and not the sharpest looker in the group

Thanks VisorDown for a trip down memory lane.

Suzuki Makai Pic

I never was a fan of the Woody Van, complete with surfboard adorning the top. Not to mention the blonde haired buff boys just did nothing for me.

Suzuki Makai

Well, that’s what this new Suzuki Makai reminds me of. However, I’m sure the 19″ Rims and LED brake lights will appeal to that younger, hipper, more not old fashioned look, as I do. pfft Only the stock boys at Abercrombie and the girly men at the local Lotion Shop will enjoy this new concept.

SV1000 Comes To The UK

One of the first motorcycles I ever owned was an SV650-S. I never could make my mind up whether I liked the laid back rumbling motorcycles or the wound tight crotch rockets. For my size, the SV650-S was the perfect blend and much like the 650, the 1000 will now bring happiness to those in the UK.

Simple design wrapped around a powerful 996cc V-Twin motor makes this an affordable, yet unique motorcycle. You don’t have to worry about high pitched wines, only low hum’s create more torque than you would ever need. In addition, you won’t be losing fairings around every corner and laying on your belly at 60 is not necessary.

UK SV1000

Americans have long enjoyed this well rounded Suzuki motorcycle and now our friends across the sea will be able to enjoy the same. Took a little while to get there, but I’m sure it’s worth the wait, you can pick up your own for around £5,650.
