it's a great bike. it's just not built to be a cream of the crop sportbike. if you look at it for what it is, a cheap sport-tourer, it's an EXCELLENT bike. there may not be a better middle-weight sport-tourer made. there may not be another one made period... (if you consider the yzf600 a sport-tourer, it may be better, i don't have enough highway miles to make a pick on that)
i think it also gets a bad rap because it's viewed as a beginner's bike. a role it can fill, but not one truly excels in. there are much better beginner bikes (hell, suzuki makes a lot of them). i think the new bodywork helps to define its true mission. good wind protection and suzuki finally uses mature graphics (unlike the crap they used 10 years ago on the katana's and gsx-r's).
