Just looking at the Suzuki Thailand's website looking for the price of their cute RV125 VanVan, 99.000 baht.

So I clicked on the big bike section and to my surprise it has been updated recently: link....>BIGBIKE
Showing not only their two superbikes but also the V-Strom at a suggested retail price (SGP) of 350 K Baht.

To my surprise however it also shows Suzuki's Gladius at a SGP of 319 K baht.
This is also a very good looking bike me thinks.....


So here is the strange thing, both the V-Strom and the Gladius are made in Japan (as far as I know), not in Thailand.
The V-Strom at 350K, the Kawa Versys at 313K.....
The Gladius at 319K versus the Kawa ER6N at 275K.....
Suzuki has found a way to import bikes in Thailand at competitive rates and I am very curious how that pans out in future?!?!

Perhaps its not Suzukis ability to import them at competitive prices but Kawasaki selling at higher prices then they could be doing considering they are manufactured here that makes the prices appear close together.

Look at how much those Kawasaki bikes sell for in the US and other cheaper markets and consider the costs and taxes of selling them there

I am just not sure if the Suzi's are made in Japan or really in Thailand? Can someone with a new V-Strom please confirm what the type plate says?

The Suzukis are made in Japan , but Suzuki desperately need to sell bikes they are not doing so well in the west as their range is old .

698,000 Bht - with the Thai assembled BMW F 800 GS soon available for 500,000-530,000 Bht, doesn't look great relative value
