First let me mention I have been riding an sv650s for 2 years.

I understand we can all agree that the sv650s is a great all around beginner to medium rider sports bike. And stating this again is just a waste of time.

Therefore I would like to mention the problems I am experiencing.
With a pair of sports performance tires (dunlop d220 are great and the best i’ve found so far for this ride), full race system (m4 or yosh) + power commander and fairing it can be a great ride for a medium driver and can last you a few years pass your beginner exhilirating moments.

However adding the price of these componets to the factory bike, 500CAN$ tires, 1000CAN$ for full system high performance m4 or yosh pipes and pc, 500CAN$ for the fairing you are looking at 2000CAN$ added to the retail price.

I can only suggest to any potential future riders of this bike that if you are just looking for a factory bike, this isnt the bike for you, you are better off getting on a kawa zzr600. But if you’re looking on adding every single horsepower possible through customization of performance parts, then sv right on. There are tons of aftermarket custom high race performance parts for this bike since this ride has also a history on race circuits.
