Suspension action was another study in contrasts, with the firmly-sprung and damped C50 versus the softly sprung and bouncy Aero. Like the ergonomics, this impacted larger riders more than the smaller ones, as the Suzuki adapted well to different-sized riders as well as differing riding habits, with the smaller riders noting that it felt a little rigid at times. Conversely, the Honda would blow through the suspension stroke with a heavier rider, but be only on the soft side for smaller pilots. The exposed rear shocks are easy to adjust for preload, but when set stiffer, don’t give enough damping, and there was no adjustment for the soft forks. That said, smaller riders were much more comfortable at high speeds on the Aero, as it smoothly handled freeway speeds with ease. The Suzuki had a tendency to grab freeway grooves so it took more concentration to ride at speed.
