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.
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. For 2019 the ever-popular SV650 comes with improved stopping power, thanks to an upgrade to new four-piston front brake calipers.
