Suzuki M109The editors at NADAguides, a vehicle price information guide, today announced their favorite "Fun in the Sun Vehicles" of 2006, including their favorite motorcycle, the Suzuki M109.

Here's what they had to say...
"The Suzuki M109 has it all," said Alex Lezama, assistant motorcycle editor at NADAguides. "We really like this bike's futuristic design and its price tag at just under $13,000 -- not only is this motorcycle affordable, it's excellently engineered and its cutting-edge style sets the standard for future motorcycle design."
The M109 boasts a liquid-cooled, V-twin, 109ci (1783cc) engine, 123 horsepower at the crankshaft.

I have not ridden the M109, nor do I know anyone who has, but I'm sure it does indeed offer a lot of "fun in the sun".

When I looked at one, the first thing I noticed is the excessive use of plastic on this bike. I'm sure plastic is only going to become a bigger reality for all bikes, Harleys included. While it does sport a "mean" look, it also has a plain look it, almost "cookie-cutter like", when you compare it to the V-Rod or Road Star Warrior.

I'm sure a lot of this has to do with offering big power with small price tag. I do like the combination of power and low price, but I also like a bike that offer more refined style.
