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 http://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.

It's 2015. Why does this bike still use a chain drive?!

I'm glad they went back to the more classic looks of the first generation SV650. The second gen had that angular aluminum frame, then they followed it up with the Gladius and its weird tank and pipe. This new SV650 looks fantastic, a classic do-it-all UJM with a (hopefully) great 90 degree V Twin.

Also, doesn't every bike in this size and price class use a chain drive?

What do you have against chain drive? Yeah they require a little basic maintenance but both alternatives (belt drive and shaft) are heavier, more complicated, and more expensive.

Seriously! This is a lightweight naked sport bike. The 650 twin is punchy but not super powered. Chain is the lightest final drive system with the best efficiency (least parasitic power loss). I would never buy a bike like this unless it had chain drive. And modern chains require so little maintenance that there's nothing to complain about. (BTW check the 4 bikes in my signature - they're all chain drive.)

By the way, kudos to Suzuki for bringing this back. Solid Cool vote.

How could I not vote Awesome?

A return of a classic, Redo v3.0. The SV engine was/is one of the best middle-weight engines Suzuki has ever designed. The original Suzuki SV650 engine was actually designed by a 3rd party company (sorry, I can't remember the name off the top of my head, but I think it was Hyosung or Hyosung purchased the rights to the engine afterwards), regardless of what it is, it is a fabulous engine!

I never owned the SV650 or the SV650S, but I did own a version of the SV650 engine in a V-Strom 650 and this engine is primarily responsible for bringing the world of "sports torque" to me. It's one of the reasons I own a V7 Guzzi today.

Awesome+

Will it go 25,000 miles without being touched? (Not replaced, not TOUCHED?) Thought not.

I'm getting the impression that you take a "hands off" approach when it comes to maintenance, which is fine I guess, I'm a professional technician and I literally make my living off of people like you. I'm also getting the impression that use your scooter almost exclusively for commuting, which is also fine.

Belt final drives require maintenance at regular intervals too. Even with a self aligning rear axle, belt deflection needs to be set properly, then checked regularly, and adjusted if need be. All of that does in fact require touching the belt. A properly maintained belt will last longer than a properly maintained chain without a doubt, but that's an argument FOR the belt, not AGAINST the chain. There's no such thing as a maintenance free machine.

No, I am just sick and tired of motorcycles in 2015 that need to be maintained on a level of a 1915 model T! There is no reason that a modern motorcycle should require such a high level of wrenching.

Docking this points for not having a chain drive is like docking a Lotus for not having power windows. Vehicles are built to purpose, and the purpose of this bike is certainly not to be a drama-free commuter. It's for excitement, and that means chain drive.

It's a naked standard, not a supersport.
