Latest offering from Suzuki Australia

Suzuki Tourers’ Bonus Luggage Offer


Suzuki Australia has launched a sensational free GIVI luggage offer with the purchase of selected Suzuki touring models, available for a limited time.

Every purchase of a V-Strom 650, V-Strom 1000 enduro tourer or Bandit 1250S sports tourer between 1 August and 31 October 2007, inclusive, will include a bonus GIVI luggage set.

Maximising riders’ storage options, the stylish and practical GIVI luggage set includes a 39-litre deluxe top box, 41-litre deluxe panniers, plus a custom rack system tailor-made for each motorcycle.

The black, 39-litre, deluxe top box offers enough space to hold a helmet and additional luggage, while the matching black, 41-litre deluxe panniers offer the unbeatable practicality of GIVI’s exclusive MONOKEY® open/release system, which incorporates a revolutionary new supplementary lid with combination opening.

For over 25 years, the Italian firm has been a market leader in motorcycle accessories, creating an innovative and high-quality array of products, ranging from mobile phone holders to helmets, spoilers and luggage.

Available from any authorised Suzuki dealer, suggested retail prices (inc GST) on the applicable models are as follows: V-Strom 650 $9,990, V-Strom 1000 $13,490, Bandit 1250S $11,990.

Interested customers should contact their local Suzuki dealer.

I have got the same panniers but a larger top box and the retail price on those was around the $2200.00 mark. This makes the DL's a very attractive touring package.

The dealer in Brisbane that I have used and can recommend is Suzuki Edge, talk to Alan Peterson.

Thats a pretty cheap DL650, my 06 cost me 11k and I got the TomTom Rider thrown in. There is still an 07 on the local shop floor with a $10,100 price tag. If I was in the market again, I would be asking for this deal with the new 08 model, lol.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
