2011 Suzuki SV650SA ABS

Welcome to a bike that combines middleweight agility with V-twin power – and tops it all off with aggressive and sporty styling. The 2011 Suzuki SV650SA comes complete with a full fairing, solo seat cover and ABS as standard equipment.

Middleweight sport bikes are known for their responsive handling, and the SV650SA 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 SV650SA 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.

Take the winning formula of the SV with its lively V-Twin engine, innovative SDTV fuel injection and aluminium-alloy truss frame. Add a stylish and purposeful upper fairing, a mean dual-headlight stare and a sportier yet still comfortable riding position with clip-on bars and you have the SV650S.

As competent at direct access training as it is at club racing, the SV650 has a proven pedigree, delivering excitement to novice and experienced riders alike.
