Brakes & ABS
Large 290mm dual front disc brakes with ABS and 240mm rear brake disc provide incredible stopping performance and control. Compact and lightweight, the SV650 introduces state-of-the-art ABS technology manufactured by Nissin, thus making it possible to further reduce vehicle weight without sacrificing performance. ABS control unit monitors wheel revolutions at 50 times per revolution and uses over 100 separate sensor data criteria in order to deliver a high degree of braking and stabilisation control. Stopping distance performance is maintained relatively the same across various road conditions.
* Please note that ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
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 now sets a higher standard. The SV650 is a rider’s go-anywhere dream machine.
The “SV” designation in the SV650 stands for many things: Sporty V-Twin, Superior Value, Simple and Versatile. Yet, it quite simply is a concept that you actually experience rather than try to define. Loaded with capabilities and exuding personality, your daily commutes or weekend excursions on winding roads are an unforgettable ride. The SV650’s lightweight and ultra-slim profile give you the confidence to take to the road.
Suzuki’s V-Twin engine’s calibrated irregular firing intervals create a unique heartbeat-like sound and linear power delivery. The engine has broad range of potential. In local club racing V-Twin cup, the starting grid is still filled with SV650’s. While it has such a great potential, the motorcycle easily fit in the city riding conditions. Combine this power plant with the SV650’s slim design and lightweight body, and you have a ride experience that can amplify seemingly endless potential.
V-Twin Fun And Excitement
More Than Just An Easy Ride
V-Twin Power For The Street
With a remarkable weight of only 196kg*, the SV650 makes manoeuvring and handling a sheer joy. The benefits of making the motorcycle lightweight are multi-fold - more responsive acceleration, nimble handling and greater confidence in manoeuvring. Riders of all levels can take
to the city or winding roads and experience unrestricted fun.
* ABS equipped model is 198kg
Achieving a slim body isn’t only about the motorcycle’s seat height. The SV650’s streamlined profile is the result of ergonomically shaped side covers and optimised seat design, which let you straddle the motorcycle with your feet on the ground comfortably while stopped and easily lean into and manage corners while riding.
Truss Pipe Frame
The truss is constructed of lightweight steel material that allows an overall slimmed down appearance while proudly emphasising the beauty of the robust V-Twin engine.
Dual Spark Technology
Suzuki’s Dual Spark Technology utilises two spark plugs per cylinder for precision ignition. The result is high combustion efficiency, smooth power delivery, low fuel consumption and low emissions.
Low RPM Assist
TI-ISC has the Low RPM Assist control function. In the launching operation or low rpm riding conditions, ECM activates ISC system. By opening the ISC circuits, engine rpm slightly raises. Normally in launching the motorcycle, engine rpm drops when the clutch is engaged. This general behavior causes engine stall. The Low RPM Assist helps rider for smooth launching operation in low rpm range. It also makes easy to ride at low speed in stop and go traffic.
Pistons & Rings
In order to support overall fuel efficiency and emissions control, the V-Twin engine adopts two innovations: resin coating on the piston skirt for minimised friction between the cylinder and piston, and a special L-shaped piston ring for enhanced seal performance and blow-by gas reduction.
SDTV Fuel injection
The SV650 features Suzuki’s performance-proven Dual Throttle Valve fuel-injection system, which includes dual butterfly valves per cylinder for enhanced power output efficiency. Combined with the ten-hole fuel injectors, fuel-combustion efficiency is further optimised as well as smooth power delivery and fuel economy. Furthermore, the system includes a thin and light 39mm throttle body with a built-in ISC (Idle Speed Control), providing optimized idling stability and environmental performance.
Dual Spark 90° V-Twin
The Suzuki V-Twin engine is a marvel of engineering and superb versatility. While at lower RPMs, 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 responds linearly and smoothly, yet always under your control. Finally at higher RPMs, the V-Twin cruises with performance ready to go, even at higher gears. The V-Twin meets the latest EURO4 emissions regulations while achieving class-leading fuel economy (3.9L / 100km [26km / L] * ) and high maximum output.
*In WMTC mode measured by SUZUKI
The aluminium die-cast cylinder adopts the patented Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) chrome-plated cylinder, which provides high heat dissipation properties and resistance to wear. The hard exterior coat makes it possible to efficiently dissipate high heat while reducing friction, and achieve a consistent wear resistant seal on the piston rings.
The more you ride the SV650, the more you’ll love it. Its smart design simplicity, distinctive form and functionality combine to make this motorcycle a centrepiece of attraction, wherever you go.
Features For Your Fun
The round multi-reflector headlight is designed to distribute maximum amount of light to increase both rider and on-the-road safety. The refined design also makes the mounting harness invisible.
LED Tail & Stop Lights
An integrated twin-LED tail light and brake light configuration is compact yet slim. High-performance LEDs contribute to deliver excellent visibility and high durability, and makes for a sharp, sleek rear section.
Suzuki Easy Start System
The Suzuki Easy Start System engages the starter motor at a precisely timed preset interval to start the motorcycle with just a push of a button. A computerised ECM checks the status and disengages the starter motor immediately after start.
The front suspension system employs durable 41mm telescopic front forks, while the rear features a link-type suspension. Together, the SV650’s suspension system ensures consistent ride-ability and sporty handling performance.
Five-spoke Aluminium Wheels
With Radial Tires
The five-spoke cast aluminium wheels create a sporty look. For 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.
Despite its large 14.5-litre capacity, the fuel tank is slim yet sports an ergonomic form that is never cumbersome. The tank’s emblem has been changed from the signature “S” mark to the SUZUKI logo.
The SV650’s advanced exhaust system is designed to be light and compact, while conforming to EURO4 emissions standards and delivering excellent power.
The narrow, streamlined seat is measures only 785mm and is designed nearly flat from front to back, yet gives riders a superior degree of comfort and grip in
the upright position, especially from the front side where good foothold is essential. In addition, a luggage loop is available for securing on cargo.
Full LCD Instrument Panel
A multifunction LCD instrument panel displays gear position, digital speedometer, tachometer, as well as indicators for odometer, trip meter, average/instantaneous fuel consumption, driving range, clock, water temperature gauge and fuel gauge. Backlight is adjustable in six levels of brightness and can be set to your preference.
Thanks to its simple base design, a wide range of accessories are available for the SV650 -
everything from those that add functional convenience to exterior parts that impact the look and impression.
