What can one say about the Suzuki SV650 motorcycle? The bike is in its 20th year of production, and though the model has changed a little by little over time, the same basic formula has stayed the same.
Here, we have a special idea from Oberdan Bezzi, who takes the venerable SV650 and turns it into large-format off-roader.
Dubbed the Suzuki SV650 Rally, the concept looks quite convincing, and it plays into the strategy that Suzuki seems to be building off of.
Recycling platforms and making what was old new again, Suzuki’s lineup is one that sees a manufacturer trying to maximize sales, but with minimal investment into its product line.
Take for example, the much-hyped Suzuki Katana is essentially a re-skinned Suzuki GSX-S1000F, which itself is a reworked Suzuki GSX-R1000.
The SV650 has already given itself as the bones of the V-Strom 650, but Bezzi sees here a different option from the budget-friendly ADV bike that is already on the market.
More of a scrambler than an adventure-tourer, the idea might be a bit late to the party, but Bezzi inks a convincing design.
With the standard Suzuki SV650 weighing 432 lbs and costing only $7,100 MSRP, this Suzuki SV650 Rally makes a lot of sense to our eyes (and wallet).
Hopefully Suzuki takes notice, and this doesn’t become one of those models that got away.
