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.

LIGHTWEIGHT CHASSIS
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.

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, 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.

SUSPENSION
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.

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.

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.

ADVANCED RIDER TECHNOLOGY
The SV650 is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.

SPORTY SV STYLE
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.

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.

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.

 

 

 

2022 Suzuki SV650 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE FEATURES
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.

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)–plated cylinders reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.

Both cylinder heads feature Suzuki’s original Dual Spark Technology for greater combustion efficiency, better fuel economy, and cleaner emissions.

The fuel-injection system employs Suzuki’s innovative Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) with 39mm throttle bodies. The secondary throttle valves are controlled by servo motor for smooth power delivery and optimum combustion efficiency.

Ten-hole, long-nose-type fuel injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion efficiency while reducing fuel consumption.

The EFI system employs O2 feedback and a precise intake pressure sensor for optimum combustion efficiency in various conditions and reduces emissions to an incredibly low level.

Suzuki’s patented Throttle-body Integrated Idle Speed Control (TI-ISC) eases starting, stabilizes the engine idle speed, and helps lower emissions. The system is compact and lightweight.

The TI-ISC on the SV650 incorporates Suzuki’s Low RPM Assist feature that seamlessly adjusts engine speed during takeoff and low-speed running to smooth the power delivery and to help reduce the possibility of the rider stalling the motorcycle.

The Engine Control Module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has enhanced settings to suit the intake and exhaust systems, resulting in better fuel economy and linear throttle response.

Advanced, transistorized ignition control programming helps maintain more precise spark timing to the four iridium, long-life spark plugs.

The SV650 also features Suzuki’s Easy Start System that lets the rider start the motorcycle with a momentary press of the start switch without pulling in the clutch lever when the transmission is in neutral.

The air cleaner case design has high capacity and routes crankcase breather gas from the engine cover to help increase engine power. The air intake funnels have staggered lengths to heighten mid-range torque.

The exhaust system has a clean, functional appearance and lower weight. The 2-into-1 system has a catalyzer to further reduce emissions.

The location of the muffler and its brushed stainless steel cover allow ample lean angles when cornering.

The high-efficiency radiator employs a large cooling fan for exceptional cooling capacity. To further control temperature, the engine is also fitted with a coolant-cooled oil cooler that is compact and lightweight.

The close-ratio, six-speed transmission features carefully selected ratios that are equally well-suited for commuting or spirited riding.

The multiplate clutch has precise push rod actuation of the pressure plate for a light pull and consistent release point.

The ready-to-ride weight of the SV650 is just 432 pounds.

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 SV650’s fuel tank is short and narrow but maintains the same 3.8-gallon (14.5-liter) fuel capacity in both US and California versions.

The slim fuel tank and seat joint aid the rider in touching the ground better at stops.

The frame is mated to a steel beam-type swingarm with a straightforward chain tension adjuster system.

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 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 preload is seven-way adjustable so you can easily adjust for a passenger or cargo.

The front brakes feature a pair of fully floating 290mm discs that are grasped by four-piston Tokico calipers for excellent braking performance.

Five-spoke, cast aluminum alloy wheels are shod with lightweight, front and rear Dunlop radial tires for sharp handling and good mileage.

The Dunlop Road Smart III tires fitted to the SV650 have great grip and all-around good tire performance.

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, and gear position, plus fuel consumption and driving range data.

Well-proportioned, tubular handlebars and mid-set foot controls create a sporting, yet ergonomically relaxed riding position.

The tastefully designed, round-shaped headlight is multi-reflector type with a 12V 60/55-watt halogen bulb.

A bright, durable LED combination tail and brake light, plus front and rear amber-tinted turn signals, illuminate the riding route.

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 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.
