Same issues, different numbers.
Nowhere near as good looking as the last decade of GSX-Rs...
Not quite as bad as Yamaha's transmission grenades but not minor.
Easy on the Yamaha bashing....
This quote from the article says a lot about Honda:
“Honda tells us that in total about 300 units are affected by the pending recall, which is roughly a tenth of the total bikes expected to ship to European countries.
It is important to note that there have been zero failures of the connecting rods in the wild, and the recall comes from Honda trying to head-off any potential issues before this important sport bike goes on the market.
For those of us in the United States, we can rest easy on this news, as the recall has no effect on the supply of bikes coming to North America.”
That’s honorable for a manufacturer to do. There’s very few machines POSSIBLY effected, and they’re being proactive to limit any potential issues. Yamaha should take note
Could you imagine if Suzuki proactively recalled their recalls before they were on the streets? They would have never made it into squid hands!
Suzuki doesn't have big problems, like defective transmissions, or oil burning that needs engine replacement, or some kinda mysterious connecting rod problem.
Guess if you ignore the frames snapping in half and the brake MC failing, I guess you'd be right.
psht. frames are overrated
And the transmission issues in the 2000 750.
You mean the frames that break when you crash into a concrete barrier.
They really need to consider building their frames stronger to be able to withstand impacts like that.
I mean, some of us are trying to ride ourselves home afterwards.
I don't know what happened to Honda, maybe they decided to concentrate on cars. Nice to see they finally got serious. My last Honda street bike was the 900rr, then a 2001 gsxr 1000. Suzuki's are easy to work on, easy to get parts and very reliable.
