Suzuki has released a teaser video ahead of what the company says will be a “a major announcement on February 5, 2021 via its all-new website, SuzukiCycles.com.”
The video, which can be viewed below, is titled “A Generational Shift is Coming. Are You Ready?” One of the thumbnail images for the video shows a set of Christmas tree lights turning green at a drag strip. Green light means “go,” but green lights at a drag strip send a different message than a green traffic light on a city street. Sportbikes get launched at the drag strip, the bigger the better.
Running just 20 seconds, the teaser video doesn’t show any motorcycles in silhouettes or in the shadows or hidden under covers. It shows downtown Los Angeles at night – the city skyline, the famous white-tiled 2nd Street tunnel (which has been in tons of commercials and movies) and fast-paced footage of city streets.
But then you hear the distinctive sound of an inline four bouncing off the rev limiter as you see a set of Christmas tree lights countdown from yellow to green, a high-performance motorcycle clearly getting ready to launch off the line. Suzuki makes a large-displacement sportbike, a legendary one that hasn’t been updated in a long time.
“Everyone at Suzuki can’t wait to show you what’s coming in just a few short days,” said Kerry Graeber, VP MC/ATV Sales and Marketing. “This is an exciting time at Suzuki and February 5th can’t come soon enough.”
We’re excited to see what’s about to drop.
