2006 Suzuki SV650

You know what you’re looking for in a standard V-twin machine: light and agile handling, along with willing-and-able engine performance. And that’s what the Suzuki SV650 delivers – in spades. Recently named as Cycle World magazine’s Best Standard Motorcycle and Motorcyclist magazine’s Best Bang for the Buck, the Suzuki SV650 offers its own unique styling and performance. Compared to the SV650S, it has a leaner profile, featuring a single round headlight, tubular handlebars and a more upright riding position. And for 2005, it features a black painted frame and swingarm, along with a stylish new color matched headlight cowl for a bold new look.

One ride on the SV650 and you’ll be hooked. It combines crisp, lightweight handling with all-day riding comfort. And the thrills really begin when you tap into its exceptional engine performance. Its fuel-injected V-twin powerplant offers crisp throttle response, strong torque and a stunningly wide powerband.

So get on a new 2006 Suzuki SV650 – and enjoy a ride you’ll never forget.
