    new to the fleet

    just purchases a tu250 the new suzuki retro bike.
    and an xr200.

    the xr i have experience with great bike. the tu is way better looking in person than it is online. the net pictures do it no justice.

    no mods planned on the tu, its too good looking right now. its not a hot rod for sure. but it sure is fun.

    there is supposedly a kickstart option you can buy over the counter of your local dealer. I think it is just a matter of getting the arm. I know on the japanese variants the bikes have a kicker.

    i am the local dealer.

    i am the parts dept at a suzuki, kawasai, yamaha shop.
    no kick option yet.
    as far as factory accessories there is nothing right now. (i've even called suzuki on this, dealer hotline most of the time they aren't even familiar with the bike)
    it came with chen shin tires, which will quickly be swapped for some avons. but other than that. and the lack of kick the bike is great.
    kickstarters are kind of pointless on efi bikes though. if you don't have juice you don't have fuel either.
    the xr is kick only at least.

    btw, chen shin pulled out of the us market. so the world is a little safer as far as tires go.
