That is registration's not sales, you need to take out dealer demo's and pre reg bikes as well, it certainly hasn't sold any better than the 950/990 range did.

Compete with Bmw? No fecking chance.

It's because they are Suzuki's, and no one seems to want their bikes anymore, just a bit devoid of an identity and look/feel a bit cheap. Most, not all there dealers here feel very low rent.

Pretty sure you would'nt stay at 130 for long, the bike starts getting pretty light and wobbly at anything over 90 on TKC's IME, they are KNOBBLIES, thats what they do.
