V-TWIN FUN AND PERFORMANCE
Presenting the newest member of the SV family, the SV650X. It comes with the latest Suzuki innovations and will set the bar even higher for V-Twin fun and performance with added café racer flare.
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 SV650X’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 SV650X’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 SV650X’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 SV650X’s excellent power delivery and produces a great exhaust sound too.
CLIP ON HANDLEBARS
The SV650X is equipped with clip on handlebars compared to the standard straight bars on the standard SV650. These clip on bars encourage a sporty riding position, and hark back to the days of the original café racers.
TUCK AND ROLL SEAT
The SV650X features a different seat design, the narrow, streamlined seat exudes retro looks and feel. The seat has soft cushioning, helping reduce rider fatigue, even in a sporty riding position.
With a remarkable ready to ride weight of only 198 kg, the SV650X makes manoeuvring and handling easy and pleasurable. The SV650X 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.
The SV650X’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 790 mm 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.
The front suspension system employs durable 41 mm telescopic right way upfront forks with 125 mm travel and are adjustable for pre-load. While the rear features link-type suspension with a stroke of 63 mm and is pre-load adjustable to one of 7 pre-defined settings. Together, the SV650X’s suspension system ensures consistent ride-ability and sporty handling performance.
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 SV650X uses 120/70ZR17M/C tyres for the front and 160/60ZR17M/C for the rear.
BRAKES AND ABS
The SV650X’S stopping performance comes courtesy of large 290 mm dual front disc brakes and a 240 mm rear brake disc provide incredible performance and control. For 2019 the SV650X comes with improved stopping power, thanks to an upgrade to new four-piston front brake calipers.
2021 Suzuki SV650X Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
YOUR PARTNER IN STYLE AND PERFORMANCE
The SV650X exudes classic café racer good looks that grab you from the very start, tempting you to go for a ride. Once on the road, you and the machine become traveling partners, sharing a passion for performance and attracting attention wherever you go
STYLISH SLOTTED HEADLIGHT COWLING
The round multi-reflector headlight is equipped with a stylish headlight cowling. Slots in the headlight sides are reminiscent of heritage racers, accentuating the SV650X’s personality.
The tank’s emblem has been changed from the signature “S” mark to the SUZUKI logo. The design has a definite retro look. Additionally, the tank capacity has been increased from 13.8L to 14.5L. Combined with the SV650X’s excellent fuel efficiency, this substantially extends your riding range.
The pulsing caused by irregular firing intervals adds to the pleasure of the ride.
The V-Twin engine generates substantial low-end torque and a power surge in the higher rpm range. These two engine character traits combine and complement each other.
Power output is smooth and easy to control. This means you get the power delivery you want at any time, irrespective of the riding circumstances – whether you are riding on city streets, winding country lanes or at higher speeds on the highway.
DUAL SPARK TECHNOLOGY
Suzuki’s Dual Spark Technology utilises two spark plugs per cylinder for precision ignition. The result is increased combustion efficiency, smoother power delivery, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.
In order to further improve overall fuel efficiency and emissions control, the V-Twin engine adopts two innovations: resin coating on the piston skirt for minimised friction between the cylinder and piston, and a special L-shaped piston ring for enhanced sealing performance and blow-by gas reduction.
LOW RPM ASSIST
The TI-ISC (Throttle body Integrated Idle Speed Control) has a Low RPM Assist control function. When moving off or riding at low engine rpm, the ECM activates the ISC system. By opening the ISC circuits, the engine rpm rises slightly. Normally, in launching the motorcycle, engine rpm drops when the clutch is engaged. Low RPM Assist helps the rider achieve a smoother launch operation in the low rpm range. This makes it easier to ride at low speed in stop-and-go traffic.
SUZUKI EASY START SYSTEM
The Suzuki Easy Start System engages the starter motor at a precisely timed preset interval to start the motorcycle with just a push of a button. ECM checks the status and disengages the starter motor immediately after starting.
Clip-on handlebars encourage a sporty riding position, and hark back to the days of the original café racers.
The narrow, streamlined seat exudes retro looks and feel. The seat has soft cushioning, helping reduce rider fatigue, even in a sporty riding position.
FRONT PRELOAD ADJUSTER
Front forks are equipped with a preload Adjuster, allowing you to set suspension firmness for exactly the way you want to ride.
The SV650X adopts Dunlop Roadsmart III tires. Well-grounded with exceptional performance in the wet, the Roadsmart III’s assure confident handling.
