V-Twin power for the street

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.

Available as a full power model or LAMS.
