2013 Suzuki SFV650AZ

Posted on by  

The Suzuki SFV650AZ is a modern naked with a touch of classic style. Its unique red, black and yellow paint scheme draws inspiration from the 1970s Suzuki RG500 Grand Prix racer.

At its heart “beats” a 645cc, 4-stroke, 2 cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC, 90° V-twin engine that rewards you with a fair amount of power and generous low end torque. The engine’s power is kept in leash by a six speed constant mesh transmission. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the engine is fed by a 14.5 litres fuel tank.

But power without control is useless, therefore, Suzuki equipped its SFV650AZ with sporty front and rear suspensions that feature adjustable spring pre-load.

The stopping power is handled by front and rear disc brakes combined with an advanced digital ABS system that compares wheel speed to road speed every 1/100th of a second to maximize the stopping performance.
