2008 Suzuki SV650S
Welcome to a bike that combines middleweight agility with V-twin power – and tops it all off with aggressive and sporty styling. The 2007 Suzuki SV650SF.
Middleweight sport bikes are known for their responsive handling, and the SV650SF is engineered to set the standard for its class. With its light and rigid aluminum-alloy truss frame and technically advanced suspension front and rear, it invites you to carve up the canyon roads with complete confidence.
The SV650SF offers an equal measure of V-twin excitement. It’s loaded with advanced designs, starting with a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine that boasts a wide powerband with crisp throttle response and strong acceleration in every gear. What’s more, its 90-degree V-twin design offers perfect primary balance, which results in smooth performance and comfortable open-road riding.
