Whatever Suzuki decides to do for the updates, one thing that it definitely needs is a motor that has midrange power like the Honda. All these bikes now days have all the power on top, which is useless if all you do is ride on the street, which a majority of most of us do. The K2-6 models had the power where you needed most and made the bike fun as hell.
Plus I hope it doesn't have all that fancy electronic BS that just hikes up the price which most of us could care less about. Unfortunately, I think it will go in that direction.
