Discussion in 'Motorcycling News' at netrider.net.au started by NetriderBot, Nov 19, 2015.

  1. For 2016, Suzuki Motorcycles Australia reintroduces the SV650 the "Original V-twin fun machine". First unveiled at EICMA 2015, the all-new SV650 will headline the Suzuki stand at the Sydney Motorcycle Show held at Sydney Olympic Park in Homebush November ...

  2. Anybody get a good look at this at the motorshow? What do you think the chances of us getting the full powered ABS version? As far as I can tell, this is a vtr250 with more go.
  3. it's a good looking bike.
    I hope they take a cue from Yamaha's book & release a full blooded non lams model alongside the learner legal one but time will tell
  4. I'm glad they pulled back a bit from the Gladius and took the SV back to its roots. Some nice touches too, particularly the trellis frame and subframe - really does channel the "I'm the Monster 600 that Ducati should have built" vibe of the original SV650.

    I'm going to say I hope they build a full-flavour version but who am I kidding? I'm never gonna buy one, I've got my old SV sitting in my dad's garage whenever I want it.

  5. awesome! Will be interesting to see what it is like...
  6. so
    whats a Motorbike Podcaster?
  7. Looks like they are selling for $10k and restricted to 34kW (A2 license, not even the LAMS limit).

    "the internet" said the last (circa 2012) SV650 could be switched between modes by grounding/exciting one digital input...but I thought I read with this one that in the UK dealers are giving away the "A2 chip" which is normally a few hundred pounds. Does anybody know more? I'm kinda interested in a cheap, light, naked twin but neither the MT or SV are selling their full powered ABS models here in Aus.
