Although I'm really happy to see they finally started offering a fully faired version, I still wish they'd kept the older bodylines on these instead of the newer angular look. Even so my 2001 was literally a blast to ride. Easy to throw around, just enough power to have fun but not so much to really bite you in the ass (unless you're an idiot) I wouldnt mind having another one of these some day.

Ya i think they are one of the best all around bikes expecially for the track. Just wish they bring back a big twin next year since they quit production of the sv1000 this year
c'mon sv1200

i love the curvy of the 1st gen but i like the hard lines of the 2nd gen because its DIFFERENT FROM THE REST OUT THERE!
Dont get me wrong the other bikes look great too but one thing that drew me to the SV was that anyone who knows just the looks of bikes can glance at the SV and KNOW it is NOT a ninja or R6 or CBR.

I am going to be getting the 08 in blue as a Bday present to myself (late August). Yeah yeah its late in the season but in Colorado we have fair weather and I wont be hitting the mtns any time soon so I wont be too hot here in the foothills.

Only difference is they put the full plastics on it instead of the 1/2 fairing...and it is a different ride, it has a sport-touring seat...more sporty than touring I think but more comfortable and like an R6 ergos

Its just a shame that you need to swap out the suspension on them. Telescoping forks? This is 2008! Thats weak. I rode my buddy's, and except for the lack of confidence in the suspension, the bike is awesome. Killer gas mileage though, like 55+ mpg!

2007 Sv650s @ ZAR35000?? Any feedback? Looking @ that since the Gixxer1100 was sold this weekend. Took it for a test drive today, BEAUT. Full Penta exhaust, Ohlins rear shock...really good looking, and rides like a dream. Loud and fast enough for SA. PM me please...
