I think that it sucks. I'm not a huge fan of Suzuki but if a major company is doing this then how long do you think it will take the others to follow suit? Kawi quit gp what if they quit sending bikes to the US?
Don't know about the squid population though now they are just gonna buy something else to wreck.
This was brought up over on the psychobike forums. It started with somebody posting a link to a dealership having the 2010 Busa listed for 16,995. A member that works at a dealership posted up that Suzuki has been spreading rumors trying to get people to buy left over '09's. That they would actually be releasing the '10's over here in late January.
