I also want to buy a suzuki DF 140 but there are some people in the Netherlands who say it is not so powerful. But in the Netherlands the suzuki is best buy for money and fuel consumption.

I read on here somewhere that the Suzuki DF140 is actually only 127HP, not entirely sure though, best do a search or wait for a Suzuki 140 owner to come along, cue RoyCruse, Robin, xpertski, etc
