SV650

What started in 1999 as a motorcycle built to deliver “V-Twin fun”, the Suzuki SV650 quickly became a rider’s phenomenon around the world.

Not only was this universal motorcycle well-suited for urban roads but it was right at home on the racetrack too.

Raising the “V-twin fun machine” performance even higher with latest Suzuki innovations, the SV650’s newest version now sets a higher standard. The new SV650 is a rider’s go-anywhere dream machine.

 

SFV650 Gladius

The SV650 was a tough act to follow and the current Gladius, launched in 2009, didn’t mess much with the recipe. The LAMS version is identical to the full-power SFV650 apart from a detuned ECU. It has the same low seat height that has attracted so many female riders. The same perfect fueling. The same light, silky action of the throttle, clutch and gearbox. All traits that make the bike easy to warm to and that build confidence.
