– 2002 Suzuki SV650S


Suzuki sport bikes have a long tradition of combining sporting performance with great value. Whether it be a Katana or the hugely successful SV650 series, Suzuki sport bikes are sure to make you happy no matter what kind of bike you’re looking for, or what kind of budget your working with. The Katana utilizes sport bike responsiveness, great rider comfort and incredible value. The Katana provides the perfect all-around tool for a weekday commute or a weekend getaway in the canyons. If a V-twin is what you’re after the SV650 and SV650S provide the same level of comfort and versatility in a compact and sporty V-twin package. All of our street 90-degree V-twin motorcycles offer a great value with the throaty sound and feel of a V-twin powered machine.



When the SV650S was introduced in the U.S. last year, riders loved the combination of the strong and torquey 90-degree 650cc engine, sportier look and seating position. With its V-twin power, lightweight chassis, sporty half-fairing, and two new colors for 2002, the SV650S is sure to be a winner in any category.

The SV650S is equipped with the same 90-degree V-twin engine and lightweight aluminum frame as the SV650, but with the additional half-fairing with dual headlamps and enclosed instrument panel, fairing mounted mirrors and lower clip-on-style handlebars, plus higher mounted rearset footpegs and a taller final drive ratio. Additionally for 2002, the SV650S now comes with preload adjustable forks for improved suspension performance.

The SV650S utilizes a liquid-cooled 90-degree V-twin engine with dual overhead cams and 4 valves per cylinder, 39 mm downdraft style carburetors, six-speed transmission and a stainless steel 2-into-1 exhaust system. The lightweight truss style aluminum frame and square tube aluminum swingarm, preload adjustable 41 mm forks, adjustable rear shock, dual disc brakes and radial tires mounted on wide aluminum rims complete the sporty and versatile SV650S.

The SV650S – all the fun and performance of the SV650, but with a sportier look, open road styling and a comfortable ergonomic package.
