Suzuki SV650...

V-Twin Fun For All Riders...

What we say…

What started in 1999 as a motorcycle built to deliver “V-Twin fun”, the Suzuki SV650 quickly became renowned the world over. Not only was this a motorcycle with universal appeal, but it was well-suited to urban roads and was right at home on the racetrack too.

Presenting the newest version of the SV650, it comes complete with the latest Suzuki innovations and will set the bar even higher for V-Twin fun and performance.

The SV650’s V-Twin comes loaded with capabilities and exudes personality, to make sure your daily commutes or weekend blasts are an unforgettable ride. No matter if you’ve just gained your licence or you’ve been riding for years, the SV650’s light weight and ultra-slim profile make you want to take to the road again and again.


Dual Spark Technology

Suzuki’s Dual Spark Technology utilises two spark plugs per cylinder for precision ignition. What’s more, by employing high-performance nickel-alloy spark plugs instead of iridium plugs. The result is increased combustion efficiency, smoother power delivery, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.


Keep Cool

A newly designed efficient round shape radiator that helps to keep the engine temperature consistent. Shrouds guide air to the radiator core. A liquid‑cooled oil cooler is light and compact. Its small dimensions help to make the bike look neat by creating more room for the exhaust system.


Exhaust System

The SV650’s advanced exhaust system has been designed to be light and compact, while still conforming to strict new emission standards. What’s more, the design also contributes to the SV650’s excellent power delivery and produces a great exhaust sound too.


Brakes and ABS

The SV650’S stopping performance comes courtesy of large 290mm dual front disc brakes and a 240mm rear brake disc provide incredible performance and control. Compact and lightweight, the SV650 has state-of-the-art ABS technology manufactured by Nissin, thus making it possible to further reduce vehicle weight without sacrificing performance.


Low RPM Assist

The SV650 comes with Suzuki’s Low RPM Assist function that utilises the Idle Speed Control (ISC) to help boost engine rpm in launching operation or running at low speed. This new feature helps suppress engine stalls when running at slow speeds, resulting in better start control and operation especially in stop-and-go traffic.


Suzuki Easy Start System

The Suzuki Easy Start System engages the starter motor at a precisely timed pre-set interval to start the motorcycle with just a push of a button. A computerised 32-bit ECM checks the status and disengages the starter motor immediately after start.

What Suzuki says…

V-Twin Power For the Street
The SV650’s 645cc, DOHC, 90⁰ V-Twin engine is calibrated with irregular firing intervals to create a unique heartbeat-like sound and linear power delivery. The engine has a broad range that’s extremely rider friendly. Combine this power plant with the SV650’s slim design and lightweight body, and you have a riding experience that will bring reward and enjoyment every time you turn the key.

Performance and Efficiency
The Suzuki V-Twin engine is a marvel of engineering with superb versatility. While at lower RPM, this engine delivers powerful torque that’s easy to handle and a deep robust sound. Open the throttle to mid-range, and the power of the engine’s response is linear and smoothly, yet always under your control. Then at higher RPM, the V-Twin has performance ready to go, even in the higher gears. As well as this great performance the engine is also extremely fuel efficient delivering a class leading 26.05 km/L (73.6 MPG) and meets the latest emissions requirements.

Suzuki go back to what the SV did best...

Updated Gladius / SFV650 or a fresh model? It doesn't matter when the new SV650 is this good...


Here's what real owners think…
Streetbike's Charlie Turner

I was very lucky to be chosen by Suzuki GB & be flown out to Spain to try the new SV650 ABS.

The overall package is just brilliant. The motor has very good and smooth power delivery which makes the bike easy to ride. The handling was superb and felt very planted on the tight & twisty Spanish roads. The ABS brakes are more than adequate and inspire confidence in the ride.

The overall styling of the new bike is a good mix of a traditional riding position but with a modern twist. The low seat height and slim petrol tank made it very easy to get both feet flat on the floor, again giving lots of confidence to ride the bike.

Overall a hugely impressive bike that will be a pleasure to ride for riders of all ages & ability. I can’t wait for our demonstrator to arrive so I can put some “running in” miles on it.


Stewart Bluey Boggild from Bridgenorth Bikers

So at long last a few days ago I finally got chance to take the new SV650 out, firstly it looks better in the 'flesh' then it did in the press release photo's I'd seen although I'm gonna wait to see if they bring out a fully faired model before I make my mind up.

The power for new riders coming in with an A2 restricted licence looking for a restricted big bike then this is more than adequate and is quick enough to impress new riders, but for those looking for a high speed thrill and lots of power after finishing their A2 restricted licence period (coming off a 300) then you may be left a little disappointed.

The handling of the bike is pretty epic, I don't know what Suzuki have done with the suspension setup or the ABS system but for the first time I've found an ABS setup I actually like and the thing takes corners exceptional well (had the toe sliders scrapping for a lot of islands) even when you decide to take liberties with it.

On the whole it's not a bad bike, can't wait to see if they release a fully faired version of the SV just like times of old as that would improve the looks and the desirability a lot. This is probably a bike I wouldn't buy myself but it's certainly one I'd recommend to any new rider coming from L plates into an A2 licence


Now let's see it in action…
