For some, a road trip is defined by its beginning and its end. But for an enlightened few, it’s the bit in between that matters most. For riders who believe that life is a journey rather than a destination, Suzuki presents the SV1000S, a simple recipe for good-time motorcycling. It begins with a thumping, fuel-injected, litre-class V-twin. Its huge reserves of low-rev grunt are perfect for powering out of the twisties, while its loping top end is relaxing at the cruise. It continues with a light and compact chassis, engineered for lithe responses on a favourite backroad and for stability at high speeds. It is, in short, an uncompromised fun machine aimed at real-world riders who enjoy real-world roads. It sounds right, feels right, and looks right, with an unashamedly naked engine and frame topped off with an effective half-fairing for those moments when a long straight proves too tempting. The Suzuki SV1000S. Intended for use on public roads. Try them all. . -Suzuki
Notes: “L”-based motors like those found in the old TL1000, the new SV1000 and the DL1000 V-Strom—which share the same general engine configuration but deliver power differently.
