I'm not sure when the next set of 'new order' tourers will be available, but Honda are widely accepted to be producing a 750 SilverWing which should be available next year at the earliest, so it wouldn't surprise me at all if Suzuki was planning their next steed to win back the crown of the 'world biggest scooter'.

I think it's probably something that will happen in 2006 or so, rather than 2005. The 650 was introduced in 2002 - 3 years is an awfully short product lifespan don't you think? Honda only sold 3,800 SilverWings from 2001 to now (they are presently withdrawn from the market after a recall due to the handlebar scares), so it cant' be profitable for them to do all the R&D again in such a short period of time. I see far more SWs than the mighty AN650s here on the streets of Tokyo, so Suzuki must be in a similar position.
