What does the LE add to the 9. I know it has a special paint job and checkered speedo but is there anything else.

I noticed the seat has a different texture to it, could it possibly be the gel seat:clap2:

darn, I was really hoping, bike I traded in had a gel seat. I thought maybe I could get lucky and not have to replace this one.

Can't complain, I found a brand new 08 sitting at the dealer and they knocked 3000 to 3500 off depending on who you ask. They said the bike was 13,699 but all the sites list the retail at 13,099 anyway I got it for 10,099

After riding my Intruder lc for the past 5 years I could almost think this beast has a turbo in it. :eek:

Clear tail light and clear turn signal lenses, along with what you mentioned.

I'm not sure about the LE meaning Limited Edition either. At the meets there are so many you get the impression it means "Lots of Em". :D

In the past these have been the changes:

1. Paint, with the stripe and painted headlight bucket complete
2. The speedo plate
3. The seats were slightly different
4. The trurn signal lenses are clear
5. The clear tail light
6. And the price was a little higher.

2011 LE'S
1. Same as number 1
2. The wheels are now black
3. I think the switch housings are now polished

Not sure as to any other differences as I have not seen on but this is what I remember people stating.

i bought the 2010 LE for the black wheels .... and because LE is faster .... :pop::pop:
Gotta be the checkerboard speedo, makes it faster because your racing to the finish :bigthumbsup:
Tell ya whats makes it really faster, I just filled up the tank for the second time since I got the bike and was paying attention to the accident in front of me instead of the nozzle. Next thing I know the gas started cascading down the tank. My first thought was "HOT EXHAUST", my next thought as the gas began to soak through the crotch of my pants and underwear was " let the bike burn with me on it just to stop this pain":cus:

about 15 more HP. Lol, I like the fact that there will be no other one painted like it. my 07 L.E. will always be the blue and white one, thats what makes it the L.E. there might be alot of them out there but by rights Suzuki should never make another blue and white M 109 R with the same paint codes as mine, the blue M 90 is close but its not the same, and that makes it cool to me. AND MAYBE SOME DAY DOWN THE ROAD IT MIGHT BE WORTH A LITTLE MORE, but I dought it!!!!!
