yeah the top speed listed here is my general cruising speed on the freeway - my ’05 SV1000s - all stock except HoleShot Dual Exhaust gets me 162 mph in approx. 1/2 mile I am 6’2" and weigh in at about 245lb... I hope a fuel manager installation over the winter will increase this next spring. Best decision ever buying this bike.

Chevy is going to get saddled with the cheap Daewoos while Suzuki will finally make a name for itself now that they’re free to fill their lineup with their own products like the new GV, SX4, and New Swift.

they haven’t mention about the torque..

i don’t know where these guys get top speed of 143.5 from. I got my SV1000S to 150 and it had room 2 go. I ran out of road and the courage to go any faster. Maybe one day..

The bike doesnt have a governor on it, it just doesnt have enough horsepower to push it much past 170mph. And that all depends on how much you weigh and the extras you’ve done to your bike. I weigh 260+lbs so the most I see is 155 indicated.

The reason why it doesn’t go up any more then 165 is, it has a governor on it. I had the same problem. I was like there is still a lot more, but couldn’t get it past 165. Great learners bike. Lots of torque!

Ok it’s a v-twin it’s not meant to go fast, it’s meant to . get a 4 cylinder and put that in 3rd on the highway jump on it and stand it straight up. thx

2004 Sv1000s akopovic carbin pipes, K&N air filter , michelin pilot power tires,
6th gear 172 mph but im sure i can hit 180.
I weight in at 165 pounds.
added the other stuff cuz it all adds in on the top speed factor.

i got a 2005 sv1000 1500 miles on it and i can not break 150 on it in 6th gear. I lovethe bike to death and love the throttle response and its cheap on insurance
