does the Suzuki have one??

seems to me this seamless gearbox stuff is becoming standard for all the factories, and unless Suzuki has it come 2014 it will just handicap them a little bit more. Not to mention extraoardinary cost of developing such a trick piece of kit...hope Suzuki comes with full coffers
