Electronic fuel injection features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve System (SDTV) – maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response

Auto Fast Idling System (AFIS), automatically sets throttle valve opening during cold engine starts by monitoring coolant temperature

Digital ignition system provides optimum ignition timing with separate maps for each cylinder

Lightweight shim-under-bucket valve system operates 31mm intake and 25.5mm exhaust valves, plus valve timing with emphasis on low-rpm power

SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electro-chemical Material) plated cylinders minimize cylinder size and improve heat dissipation

High-efficiency liquid cooling system for optimum engine operating temperature – includes compact oil cooler

Smooth shifting 6-speed transmission with cable operated clutch – final drive ratio lowered from SV650 for improved low rpm performance

Plastic outer clutch cover and engine sprocket cover for reduced weight and noise
