Default No more Suzuki for Lehman Trikes?

Friend of mine sent me pics of a new trike from Lehman Trikes based on the Kawasaki 900.

2011 Lehman Storm Trike Test – extra images ? Motorcycle Reviews, News, Blog and Forum

http://www.lehmantrikes.com/img/cms_news/183_1.pdf

Did I hear no more C90? That means the death of the C90 trike.

If Lehman went to the Kawi 900, I would not see them making the 800 Suzuki Trike.

The one I recieved pics of was 19K setting on the floor.

Does this mean no more C90 drive availability?

the C90 was dropped from the 2011 line.
Just go to the zuki USA site and see what zuki did to their line w/ a machette.

Having owned a Kawi 900, I think this is a good choice. I think the 900 is a fabulous bike!!

I'd say the c90 rear end supply is coming to a end, since most of those came from the trike conversion.
However Leman makes trike conversions for several manfactures, including the C50..
Suzuki has always been one to operate lean, family operation so the future intend of the manfacturing of the bikes are not for public knowledge, although GM was heavily invested in Suz as a corporation.

I was just looking at the Canadian web site for Suz, they list the most 2011 models as the hayabusa, gsx 1000, 650/abs, 600, and the 600a, also listed is the 109r, 109r2, m50,c50 c50t, s40, and a tu250, also listed is a rm450,and a 250, a gsx 1250, and a sfv 650, clearly Suzuki will stay in the bike business and come out with new and better models for the usa market after our economy improves...course Suzuki is selling all she can in the china and india markets....I think we have hit the 3rd world status....even HD is now building plants in india to avoid the import fee of 40%...
Its a changing world..for sure
