2017 Suzuki SV650 Review

2017 Suzuki SV650 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

V-TWIN POWER FOR THE STREET...

For 2017, Suzuki introduces a new version of an iconic motorcycle that embodies the sporty personality that only a lively, mid-sized V-twin roadster can deliver. The new SV650 ABS* has a polished powerplant that provides increased performance with low emissions and outstanding fuel economy, mated to refined trim and lightweight chassis that delivers a sporty, exciting ride. Like its predecessors, the 2017 SV650 ABS promises to have the sparkling performance, style and value that a broad range of riders will enjoy.

That’s why we've built the new SV650 with a punchy V-Twin engine and light weight chassis. The new SV650 is the bike that will make your daily commutes or weekend blasts unforgettable.

*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

 




2017 Suzuki SV650 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Liquid cooled, 645cc, 4-stroke, DOHC, V-twin engine delivers increased performance.

Refined EFI system with Low RPM Assist makes take offs smooth and pleasant.

Trellis-style frame constructed of high-strength steel tubes contributes to the motorcycle’s lower weight and trim chassis.

Slim bodywork is aesthetically pleasing while aiding comfort and maneuverability.


V-Twin Excitement

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.


V-Twin Power For the Street

The SV650’s 645cc, DOHC, 90° 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.

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, Suzuki has managed to minimise replacement costs for owners without sacrificing performance. The result is increased combustion efficiency, smoother power delivery, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.

SDTV Fuel Injection

The SV650 features Suzuki’s performance-proven Dual Throttle Valve fuel- injection system, which includes dual butterfly valves per cylinder for enhanced power output efficiency. Combined with the ten-hole fuel injectors, fuel combustion efficiency is further optimised as well as smoother power delivery and fuel economy. Furthermore, the system includes a thinner and lighter 39mm throttle body with a built-in ISC (Idle Speed Control), providing even more idling stability and environmental performance.

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.


Agile, Fun to Ride


Lightweight Chassis

With a remarkable ready to ride weight of only 197kg, the SV650 makes manoeuvring and handling easy and pleasurable. The SV650 makes good use of its light weight with; responsive acceleration, nimble handling and absolute cornering confidence. Riders of all levels can take to the city or winding roads and experience unrestricted fun.

Slim Body

The SV650’s streamlined profile is the result of ergonomically shaped side panels and optimised seat design, which let you straddle the motorcycle with your feet on the ground if stopped or for easy changes of position while flowing through corners.

The narrow, streamlined seat is 785mm in height and is designed almost flat from front to rear, this gives riders a high degree of grip in the upright position. Despite its ample 14.5 litre capacity, the fuel tank is slim and sports an ergonomic form for maximum rider comfort.

Aluminium Wheels and Radial Tyres

The five-spoke cast aluminium wheels create a sporty look. For an excellent balance of cornering performance and straight line speed stability, the SV650 uses the Dunlop radial sport 120/70ZR17M/C for the front and 160/60ZR17M/C for the rear.

Suspension

The front suspension system employs durable 41mm telescopic right way upfront forks with 125mm travel and are adjustable for pre-load. While the rear features link-type suspension with a stroke of 63mm and is pre-load adjustable to one of 7 pre-defined settings. Together, the SV650's suspension system ensures consistent ride-ability and sporty handling performance.


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. The 32-bit ECM monitors wheel revolutions at 50 times per wheel rotation in order to deliver a high degree of braking and stabilisation control. So stopping performance is maintained across various road conditions.

 


Advanced Technology


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.

 

 

 

Clean, Slim and Simple Form


New SV look

The overall shape expresses its slim, lightweight design and is intended to enhance the strength of V-Twin engine. Clean, neatly shaped body lines have been styled to appeal to a wide variety of riders. A combination of black plastics and painted parts emphasise its slim, sporty and lightweight looks. The body lines are made of flat lines on the top and angular lines from front axle running through to tail section.

Classic Style Headlight

The round multi-reflector headlight is designed to distribute the maximum amount of light to ensure the SV650 is always seen. In classic SV650 style, the distinctive round shape is used not only for its original aesthetic but also allows for easy customisation.

Striking Rear LED Lights

An integrated twin-LED tail light and brake light configuration is compact and slim. High performance LEDs deliver excellent visibility and high durability, and makes for sharp and sleek rear section.

Ready to Customise

The look of the standard SV650, when combined with the wide range of Genuine Accessories, means each bike can become as individual as its rider. So whether its high style and a café racer look or practicality for the daily commuter, the SV650 can do it all.

Full LCD Instruments

A multifunction LCD instrument panel displays; gear position, digital speedometer, tachometer, as well as indicators for odometer, tripmeter, clock, water temperature gauge and fuel gauge. The backlight is adjustable in six levels of brightness and can be set to your preference.
