American Suzuki today announced several 2011 motorcycles and ATVs, including updated motocross bikes, updated KingQuad 400s and a non-power-steering KingQuad 500AXi.
“We are excited to launch a significant number of new units for the 2011 model year, while at the same time we celebrate a half-century of racing,” Steve Bortolamedi, American Suzuki’s senior communications manager, stated in a press release. “Our products are truly the result of time spent on racetracks all over the world.”
Suzuki has updated both the RM-Z250 and RM-Z450, which is based on the current FIM/AMA Supercross championship-winning ride. Details about the updates, as well as all the models mentioned in this article, have been posted at www.suzukicycles.com.
Suzuki said it will offer several cruisers for 2011, including the Boulevard M109R, the Boulevard M109R Limited, the entry-level Boulevard S40 and the retro-styled standard TU250. The S40 will be available in two new color schemes, orange and black, or white and silver.
For dual-sport fans, Suzuki will offer the DR650SE, DR-Z400S and the middleweight V-Strom 650 ABS, which features antilock brakes as well as a large rear luggage rack with rubber-padded platform to help keep bags and luggage in place. The V-Strom will be available in white and black.
The Hayabusa returns in Pearl Mirage White or Pearl Nebular Black.
Suzuki said it will be shipping these motorcycles soon. The company is also releasing a 2010 RM85.
