That's it. No more Suzuki Open link in a new window motorcycles will be built in Spain for the foreseeable future. The last one rolled out and got hauled away by truck, and now the Suzuki factory in Spain is closed.

Sniff. End of an era, and 200 Spanish workers into the unemployment lines. So far I've not been able to determine what the actual last bike was, since the reports and images are sketchy.
