A genuinely all-new design is a rare thing, and even more so when it is a budget bike. Suzuki re-invented the all-round fun roadster with the Bandit back in the mid-1990s, which took the market by storm. Suzuki’s record with V-twins isn’t quite so inspiring. The factory-custom Intruders never captured the public imagination and the TL1000 suffered from scare stories and lack of race-track credibility.
So how to explain the SV650? It sprung all-new and fully formed from Japan at a bargain price. A fun 70 bhp V-twin in an aluminium frame with looks derived from the undeniably handsome TL1000. There was of course evidence of penny pinching if you looked hard enough, like non-adjustable suspension and narrow wheels – even the plain paint schemes, but all the road tests agreed – here was the heir to the Bandit.
Our Suzuki SV650 & SV650S manual will help you gain the confidence you need to service and repair your motorcycle.
