Suzuki MotorcyclesConsumerAffairs Unaccredited Brand
My Suzuki GS 650 looks like Fonzarelli's motorcycle in "Happy Days". It was dark blue and chrome. It had the upstanding chrome rear view mirrors on the left and right. It was so cool and great on gas. It had great balance and was easy to maintain upright when getting on. I was looking for a street bike that was powerful yet not a road hog. It was very economical too. I needed a dependable form of transportation and decided to research different motorcycles and I realized that the GS 650 was the best fit. It was not too heavy that it was a pain to keep level at a light. It was perfect for my height, and was very comfortable. The motorcycle had enough space to include a passenger and I went through two different girlfriends with that motorcycle. It had a very nice black leather or faux leather seat that was very comfortable. The only thing I did not like that it was expensive to replace front tire when it wore down.
I really enjoyed the ride and build quality of my GS850G. It was a very lucky with maintenance bike and was running very well right up until I sold it. I do know that it is still going today and has well over 90,000 on it and it is all original and was never cracked open. I love the brand and would not change anything. I bought the bike out of necessity because of gas prices. It was the first bike I ever owned and was the bike I learned on. It was in my price range so I purchased it and maintained it by the book and so does its current owner. I would love to own another. Everybody likes different things on a bike but I am not picky as long as it is a cruiser style and not a sports bike. It’s a bike, it’s just a form of transportation.
I ended up buying it because the price and styling was right. For the money it was the best deal for bike available. The reliability of this bike made it really easy to own and I never worried about being stranded. It also has plenty of parts and accessories available. But it had hard compression and was difficult to Kickstart, especially when cold. It also had a complicated starting sequence that made getting going kind of a pain in the rear, but in the other hand, it made it hard to steal. Overall the motorcycle was great and really fun to ride.
I like that the bike is reliable and powerful. And the steel frame with an aluminum subframe makes it light and easy to handle. Suzuki makes one specific model that I enjoy riding, is comfortable for me, and meets my needs as a sports bike rider. It is faster, and easier to ride than any other comparable bike I've ridden. The brand makes many very boring, uninteresting things, but this one model is great.
My overall experience with this brand is very good and I chose it over other brand because I think it best displays what I love and like about motorcycles. It was also the brand of my first motorcycle I ever rode. It helps me get a good feeling while I am riding my motorcycle. Additionally the brand name is really cool and great. But the color combinations should be improved.

This is my favorite motorcycles brand and I choose it over all others. It's convenient and essential and it's works out for me. I don't plan on changing my motorcycles brands anytime soon. I like how physically attractive and aesthetic the motorcycles look and how well they ride on streets. They're very smooth and I get many compliments on it. I wish a lower the price though.
I have owned two Suzuki Motorcycles. They both have performed well. They have very low maintenance. They are a motorcycle you can count on. I know other people who also own them and they feel the same way about them. Suzuki Motorcycles are a quality machine. They are built to last. I have not had any problems with the Suzuki Motorcycles I have owned. I would definitely purchase another without hesitation. I always recommend them to others. They are a motorcyle that you can count on.
