V-TWIN FUN AND PERFORMANCE
Presenting the newest version of the SV650, it comes complete with the latest Suzuki innovations and will set the bar even higher for V-Twin fun and performance.
DUAL SPARK 90°V-TWIN
The V-Twin engine is a marvel of engineering with superb versatility. While at lower RPM, this engine delivers powerful torque that’s easy to handle and a deep robust sound. Open the throttle to mid-range, and the power of the engine’s response is linear and smooth, yet always under your control. Then at higher RPM, the V-Twin has performance ready to go.
V-TWIN POWER FOR THE STREET
The SV650’s 645cc, DOHC, 90⁰ V-Twin engine is calibrated with irregular firing intervals to create a unique heartbeat-like sound and linear power delivery. The engine has a broad range that’s extremely rider friendly. Combine this power plant with the SV650’s slim design and lightweight body, and you have a riding experience that will bring reward and enjoyment every time you turn the key.
DUAL SPARK TECHNOLOGY
Suzuki’s Dual Spark Technology utilises two spark plugs per cylinder for precision ignition. What’s more, by employing high-performance nickel-alloy spark plugs instead of iridium plugs, Suzuki has managed to minimise replacement costs for owners without sacrificing performance. The result is increased combustion efficiency, smoother power delivery, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.
The SV650’s advanced exhaust system has been designed to be light and compact, while still conforming to strict new emission standards. What’s more, the design also contributes to the SV650’s excellent power delivery and produces a great exhaust sound too.
LIGHT WEIGHT CHASSIS
With a remarkable ready to ride weight of only 198kg, the SV650 makes manoeuvring and handling easy and pleasurable. The SV650 makes good use of its light weight with responsive acceleration, nimble handling and absolute confidence in manoeuvring. Riders of all levels can take to the city or winding roads and experience unrestricted fun.
The SV650’s streamlined profile is the result of ergonomically shaped side panels and optimised seat design, which let you straddle the motorcycle with your feet on the ground if stopped or for easy changes of position while flowing through corners. The narrow, streamlined seat is 785mm in height and is designed almost flat from front to rear, yet gives riders a high degree of grip in the upright position. Despite its ample 14.5 litre capacity, the fuel tank is slim and sports an ergonomic form for maximum rider comfort.
The front suspension system employs durable 41mm telescopic right way upfront forks with 125 mm travel. While the rear features link-type suspension with a stroke of 63 mm and is pre-load adjustable to one of 7 pre-defined settings. Together, the SV650’s suspension system ensures consistent ride-ability and sporty handling performance.
WHEELS AND TYRES
The five-spoke cast aluminium wheels create a sporty look. For an excellent balance of cornering performance and straight line speed stability, the SV650 uses the Dunlop radial sport 120/70ZR17M/C for the front and 160/60ZR17M/C for the rear.
BRAKES AND ABS
The SV650’S stopping performance comes courtesy of large 290mm dual front disc brakes and a 240mm rear brake disc provide incredible performance and control. Compact and lightweight, the SV650 has state-of-the-art ABS technology¹ manufactured by Nissin, thus making it possible to further reduce vehicle weight without sacrificing performance.
ADVANCED RIDER TECHNOLOGY
The SV650 is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.
SUZUKI EASY START SYSTEM
The Suzuki Easy Start System engages the starter motor at a precisely timed pre-set interval to start the motorcycle with just a push of a button. A computerised 32-bit ECM checks the status and disengages the starter motor immediately after start.
LOW RPM ASSIST
The SV650 comes with Suzuki’s Low RPM Assist function that utilises the Idle Speed Control (ISC) to help boost engine rpm in launching operation or running at low speed. This new feature helps suppress engine stalls when running at slow speeds, resulting in better start control and operation especially in stop-and-go traffic.
