Bikes of interest are those mentioned above.
Aside from looks, price, etc. I have been checking the various forums for long term mechanical issues. A quick read of both of the Suzuki forums reveals quite a few issues. More so with the DL650 which is surprising for such a young machine. The F650GS seem to stand up better over time than the other two.
Anyone care to give an "unbiased" opinion.
My unbiased opinion is that you oviously read too quickly. You might want to slow down next time you're browsing Suzuki forums and double check the bike you THINK you're reading about.
Or, you could just go and buy a F650. It's your money, buy what you want.
