2010 Suzuki SV650S
Break the rules.
There’s something about a V-twin sportsbike, the way it looks, sounds and feels. Two cylinders in a classic layout. An elongated exhaust note under acceleration. A feeling the SV650 range takes to a new level. The proven liquid-cooled V-twin has been fine tuned with the addition of Suzuki’s advanced digital SDTV fuel injection system.
An innovative black chassis on all SV650 models is based on an aluminium-alloy-truss frame. Two V-twins done just right, the main difference rests with the S-version’s sleek half fairing, dual multi-reflector headlights and clip on handlebars, versus the naked SV650’s single round headlight, tubular handlebars and colour-matched instrument shield.
Both versions serve up a comfortable riding position with a relatively short reach to the handlebars and a low 800mm seat height. Each carry a modern instrument cluster, including an analog tachometer positioned above a digital Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) speedometer.
The latest generation SV650 series. So many radical solutions, so much unadulterated fun.
The Suzuki SV650S and SV650S ABS feature a new Black livery.
The SV650S range combines Suzuki’s renowned V-Twin engine with agile handling and high quality components, in a comfortable and stylish middleweight package.
All SV650 models are powered by a 645cc, 90 degree, liquid-cooled engine, tuned to offer impressive power delivery and torque, and crisp throttle response.
Suzuki’s innovative Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) digital fuel-injection system delivers excellent fuel economy and gives riders improved low-to-mid range torque.
Stopping power is provided by dual 290mm front disc brakes and a 220mm rear disc brake, while an Antilock Braking System-equipped version is also available.
Complementing the new liveries, all models have new graphics and are backed by Suzuki’s warranty.
Features and Benefits:
645cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valve per-cylinder, 90-degree V-Twin engine tuned to deliver broad powerband and crisp throttle response with class-leading power and torque.
High-quality engine components include cast-aluminium-alloy pistons shaped to minimise reciprocating weight and shot-peened chrome-moly-steel connecting rods.
Downdraft, straight-port cylinder head and compact 11.6:1 compression ratio combustion chamber for efficient combustion.
Innovative Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) digital fuel-injection system, featuring a secondary butterfly valve in each 39mm throttle body, results in more seamless, linear throttle response along with increased torque at low-to-mid rpm range.
Auto fast idle system contributes easy engine start.
Suzuki Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system further reduces exhaust emissions.
Large 8.5-litre airbox with free-flowing, flat, pleated-element air filter, efficient muffler and air-cooled oil cooler support the engine’s high performance.
Aluminium-alloy truss frame’s main sections are each made as a single, precision die-casting using high-vacuum moulding technology resulting in a sophisticated and highly efficient design.
41mm-stanchion-tube front forks and progressive-link rear suspension both have adjustable spring preload.
Front 120/60ZR17 and rear 160/60ZR17 radial tyres.
Dual 290mm floating-disc front brakes and 220mm rear disc brake give excellent stopping power.
Comfortable riding position with short reach to clip-on handlebars and modest 800mm seat height.
Sleek half-fairing mounted above the radiator to allow clear view of the truss frame and the V-Twin engine with efficient aerodynamics.
Black-coloured mainframe, swingarm and front/rear wheels for a modern appearance.
Compact and functional instrument cluster with analogue tachometer above liquid-crystal display for speedometer, odometer/trip meter, coolant-temperature gauge, oil-pressure-warning indicator and clock.
Practical features include passenger grab bar, luggage tie-down hooks, large underseat storage compartment and 17.0-litre fuel tank.
Dual multi-reflector halogen headlights and LED taillight laid out in two vertical strips.
