Biffer is too Sporty!
« on: 02 April, 2015, 11:45:42 AM »
Found this old test the other day.

Sets out to be on two "all rounders" then puts a naked Mk2 up against a Susuki 1250 with full luggage and comes to the conclusion that the 1250 is a better tourer and the Mk2 is too sporty!

Mk2 ride is too hard and you have to rev the life out of it apparently. Only thing I wouldn't debate is the price difference, although I'm prepared to accept the Suzy is a good tourer.

Worth a look even if it's only to be puzzled by it.

  dont care if I get stoned for saying this but if buying again it would be the Suzuki,  for two up touring with luggage  it would be hard to beat.

 At the moment I feel very tempted with getting one of the new Suzuki GSX 1250 ,I had a sit and a good drool over one at the NEC , it created a lot of interest on the Suzuki stand with one of  the reps telling  me that they are selling very well ,  after seeing one comes as no surprise.

If you're seriously considering a change, wouldn't it be worth signing up to their forum and seeing what's crawling out from under the rocks over a few weeks?

to everybody looking at the suz 1250, before buying, try the bike 2-up. you'll be (negatively) surprised. or rather the person behind ... :006:
