– New generation SV650S with all-new frame, electronic fuel injection and an exciting new look.

– New 16-bit ECM provides precise control of ignition timing and injector operation for each cylinder.

– Large throttle bodies fed by an 8.5 liter airbox with a flat-panel air filter for easy maintenance.

– Pulsed-air injection system (PAIR) reduces emissions.

– Sleek half fairing features dual 60/55W headlights with running lights and folding mirrors.

– Compact instrument cluster includes analog tach, LCD speedometer, odometer/tripmeters, and temperature gauge, plus LCD clock and low fuel warning light.

– Steeply-angled tail section houses unique vertically-styled, high visibility LED taillight.

– Narrow, lightweight aluminum truss-style frame is constructed using high-vacuum die-cast process for more consistent strength and fewer individual welded sections.
