The Suzuki SV650SA is a pretty versatile sport motorcycle which feels similarly comfortable on both the race tracks and city streets.
The 2012 model features a full fairing , a solo seat cover and ABS as standard equipment. The motorcycle is built on a light yet rigid aluminum-alloy truss frame which is combined with a high tech suspension on the front and rear.
The bike’s center piece is a capable 645cm3 liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine that has been tuned to deliver a great powerband with crisp throttle response and strong acceleration in every gear. Additionally the Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS) contributes to easy engine start.
Among the high quality engine components you’ll find cast-aluminum-alloy pistons shaped to minimize reciprocating weight and shot-peened chrome-moly-steel connecting rods. Power is sent to the rear wheel through a six speed constant mesh transmission.

When people say Suzuki sportbikes, they usually think at the famous GSX-R series and no matter what, they usually end up talking about the Hayabusa model. But the SV650SA ABS is one very good example that there are also other sportsbikes made by the Japanese manufacturer and we can say they’re quite good. This precise model carries on as a 2010 model with color scheme changes and standard ABS, but the interesting part about it is that, although being powered by a midsized V-twin, it competes with four-cylinder bikes. Let’s see what more.
We just came across an interesting post on the triumph675 forum about the anatomy of a highside described by the author of the crash himself. Apparently, the rider was trying a new approach for Turn 9 of the Chuckwalla Valley Raceway and the tricky section of the track combined with a bit of dust turned out disastrous for the Suzuki SV650, while the rider walked away with nothing but a hurt pride.
The bike, which was recently fitted with new bodywork and paint, is now $3K away from another track day. Better luck next time!
A French fan of Suzuki has imagined the Japanese manufacturer’s 2010 model range and put his Photoshop skills to work in a quite successful (in our opinion) attempt of showing how the B-King, GSX-R series, GSX650F, SV650, SV1000 and DR-Z400SM might end up looking in the year to come.
While the visual changes imagined for each motorcycle aren’t dramatic, this might very well reflect reality for models which won’t be significantly upgraded.
In the automotive industry, the Ford Explorer started the SUV Revolution, but what if this tricked out Suzuki SV 1000 manages to do the same with motorcycles? We would be probably talking about the Suzuki SUV 1000. But until then, let’s enjoy watching this odd looking two-wheeled creation producing the sound that catches everyone’s attention with a V-twin motor.
