I don't understand why Honda and now Suzuki feel they have to put a "beak" on a so-called "Adventure" bike...



Suzuki didn't feel compelled to do it to the older V-Stroms, but now they toss one on. It bugs me when the Marketing Dept. gets too involved in product design.

If I'm perfectly honest it is the reason I'd buy a Tiger 800 roadie over the XC.

I loathe the beak.
