Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The Suzuki SV650 is easily becoming an iconic model in the Japanese brand’s history, with new and experienced riders enjoy what the 650cc v-twin sport bike has to offer.

An ideal starter machine for learning motorcycles, the Suzuki SV650 is also a popular choice with track day enthusiasts and racer. It’s just a versatile, cheap, and fun motorcycle to ride.

For the 2017 model year (available early/mid-2016), Suzuki is bringing the SV650 back to its lineup, with both an ABS and non-ABS model. Getting some updates along the way as well, the 2017 Suzuki SV650 should continue to be a popular model for Suzuki.

The Japanese manufacturer says that over 60 new parts have been added to the 2017 Suzuki SV650’s v-twin power plant, which now produces more power, more torque, improved fuel economy, and lower emissions as a result.

The new includes pistons that are designed for optimal rigidity and weight, and use new resin-coated piston skirts for less friction and greater durability. A dual-spark ignition has also been added to the combustion chamber, while the “Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve” injector system includes a 10-hole fuel injector setup.

The SV650 chassis too has been reworked, with 70 new parts being added, according to Suzuki. The result is a slimmer and lighter motorcycle than its predecessor – by a factor of 15 lbs. Braking is done by 290mm front discs, and a 240mm rear disc, with ABS as an option.



There’s no word on price yet, but Suzuki says we should see the 2017 Suzuki SV650 in late spring / early summer of next year.
