Need4Speed750 said:So does anybody have an official word, or otherwise, as to why Suzuki stopped making the TL ? just curious, seems like a such a beast bike that you'd think they'd still be putting em out.
I think it was more the infamy than the lack of appeal. Infamy that was well deserved. I fell victim to the TL tankslapper, as did one of my riding buddies. Had Suzuki bothered to finish the R&D on the bike (especially the suspension!) before releasing it, it would have been one heck of a contender!GSXR750DJ said:I looked it up on the internet and this is what I found. One review said this about both the L and the S series: "with both now considered as being dated and unfashionable...The TLs’ infamy and lack of appeal, especially the S version, put most bikers off going anywhere near them." WHAT!! As a past owner of a 1000R, I never thought of it as being unfashionable nor lack of appeal. Infact, if I could have found one that was for sell in my area, I would have gotten it instead of my GSXR I have now. I don't know who thought up that silly s*#t, but myself along with others I know that now and in the past owned them, never thought that. O well.
