2021 Suzuki SV650 ABS Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
V-TWIN FUN AND PERFORMANCE
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.
DUAL SPARK 90° V-TWIN
The 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 smooth, yet always under your control. Then at higher RPM, the V-Twin has performance ready to go.
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.
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.
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. For 2019 the ever-popular SV650 comes with improved stopping power, thanks to an upgrade to new four-piston front brake calipers.
WHEELS AND 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.
The front suspension system employs durable 41mm telescopic right way upfront forks with 125mm travel. 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.
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, yet 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.
With a remarkable ready to ride weight of only 198kg, 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 confidence in manoeuvring. Riders of all levels can take to the city or winding roads and experience unrestricted fun.
2021 Suzuki SV650 ABS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Flexibility is only available from a motorcycle of reliable performance, designed through the application of modern technology – this is the freedom not to constrain the riders’ style. This machine with brisk performance in a neat package and the full range of options, gives many various images for your rider lifestyle. Welcome to the world of new riding styles!
The styling was conceived to express slim, lightweight design and to showcase the strength of V-twin engine. The clean, neatly shaped body lines are aimed to be appealing to a wide range of riders. The compact, lightweight chassis is covered with slim bodywork to create a bike that’s agile and fun to ride on a variety of streets – such as city traffic, highway, rural roads, and winding roads. The ready-to-ride weight of the 2020 SV650 ABS is a low 437 pounds.
The slim fuel tank and seat joint aid the rider in touching the ground better at stops. Attention to rider comfort and confidence includes a carefully shaped seat with a high-grip cover and integrated cargo retention loops that can pull out from under the seat. The high-strength steel, trellis-style frame is key to the motorcycle’s trim and intelligent dimensions. The seat height is just 785mm (30.9 inches) and is the lowest in the 600–800cc street bike class.
The compact and lightweight instrument panel is a full LCD display, eliminating motor and needle mechanics. The instrument panel has several features, including a tachometer, speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, ABS alert, and gear position, plus fuel consumption and driving range data
Class exclusive*, 645cc, DOHC, V-twin engine produces strong, torque-rich horsepower while conforming the latest emission requirements. The engine’s 90-degree L-twin configuration has perfect primary balance, so a heavy, power-robbing counter balancer is not needed.
The energy-efficient engine has unique pistons that were engineered with the use of Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis to achieve optimal rigidity and weight. Each piston skirt has a special resin coating, and the other sliding parts are tinned for less friction and greater durability – a first for a Suzuki motorcycle. Suzuki’s innovative L-shaped piston rings contribute to reduced blow-by gas, resulting in fewer emissions and greater combustion efficiency.
LONG NOSE FUEL INJECTORS
Ten-hole, long-nose-type fuel injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion efficiency and while reducing fuel consumption.
CONVENTIONAL STYLE FRONT FORKS
The 41mm conventional-style front fork has a generous 125mm (4.9 inches) of wheel travel to provide a sporty but plush ride.
LINK TYPE REAR SHOCK
Link-type rear shock unit has a 63mm (2.48-inch) stroke and is tuned for a superb progressive feel and to react efficiently to varied road conditions while still delivering an agile and stable feel. The rear shock’s spring pre-load is seven-way adjustable so you can easily adjust for a passenger or cargo.
EXCELLENT BRAKING PERFORMANCE
The front brakes feature a pair of fully floating 290mm discs that are grasped by four-piston Tokico calipers for excellent braking performance. The compact Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)* ensures braking power matches available traction.
