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.

  • High-quality engine components include cast-aluminum-alloy pistons shaped to minimize reciprocating weight and shot-peened chrome-moly-steel connecting rods.
  • Downdraft, straight-port cylinder head and compact 11.5:1 compression ratio combustion chamber for efficient combustion.
  • Innovative Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) digital fuel injection system, featuring secondary butterfly valve in each 39mm throttle body, brings more seamless, linear throttle response along with strong torque at low-to-mid rpm range.
  • Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS) contributes to easy engine start.
  • Suzuki Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system further reduces exhaust emissions.
  • Antilock Brake System (ABS)* monitors wheel speed, and matches stopping power to available traction. (SV650SA only)
  • Large 8.5-liter airbox with free-flowing, flat, pleated-element air filter, efficient muffler and air-cooled oil cooler support the engine’s high performance.
  • Innovative aluminum-alloy truss frame’s right and left sections are each made as a single die-casting using high- vacuum moulding technology, resulting in a highly efficient design and sophisticated appearance with less welding.
  • 41mm-stanchion-tube front forks and progressive-link rear suspension both have adjustable spring preload.
  • Compact and functional instrument cluster with analog tachometer above a liquid-crystal display for speedometer, odometer/trip meter, coolant-temperature gauge, oil-pressure-warning indicator and clock.
  • Dual multi-reflector halogen and LED tailight laid out in two vertical strips.
