I have an '05 Suzuki M50, and am really interested in the Mean Streak. I got a chance to test ride an '06 today, and am very impressed. Many magazines have bragged about how well the little 800cc M50 handles, and I must say that the Meanie seemed much more balanced and much more comfortable - not to mention the power difference. Was smoother too. So I know I'll take a nasty hit on depreciation, but I'm thinking of trading for a psuedo-Mean Streak - a nearby dealer has 3 leftover '04 Marauder 1600s for $7999. Could there be some reason the 'Rauders didn't sell? If not, I'm feeling like I must have one. I really like the bobbed fender and the different headlight. Please let me know if there was something wrong with the Suzuki version that should keep me away from saving a couple of thousand over an '06 Mean Streak. Thanks.
