Not long ago my local Suzuki dealer offered me a brand new, left over 2008 S40 for $3,400. due to a promotion Suzuki had going at the time. There are certainly deals to be had. It felt similar to the rebel when I sat on it, perhaps slightly heavier. I've never actually ridden one though. I was wondering if they are reliable and if they have any mechanical issues. Shadow: I really dig the Honda RS 750, the flat track styling and all, but at 8 grand it will have to stay on my wish list for a while. Anyway, thank God for the little rebel, everyman's affordable ride.
