  • The Best All-Arounder, Ever? Perhaps

    Mar 28, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: That jewel of an engine; brakes; newbie-friendly; price tag.
    Cons: Crap suspension; high seat height.

    Summary: There are myriad reviews and praises about the SV650, and I suppose this one is no different… except this is my first motorcycle. I bought the bike in June of '04; it is a 2002 SV650 "naked." I had been shopping for a bike for a few months; ... read more

    Pros: That beautiful engine and frame. Great stance.
    Cons: Soft, under-damped forks.

    Summary: I have ridden dirt bikes for more than 35 years and only recently decided I had to have a street bike. I bought my SV650 used with 4,500 miles on the odometer after a lot of looking. I have never had more fun. The powerband on this beautiful motor ... read more

  • This review is for the '03 SV650.......

    Jul 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: VALUE! Bang for the buck other bikes wish they could compete with!
    Cons: Seat a bit hard, I'd like the bars up and back an inch, no centerstand

    Summary: I had been looking at bikes again after a 15 year or so absence from the sport, and had narrowed my choices down to the SV650 and the Triumph Bonneville. We have a short riding season up in this part of the country, so I had set myself a "realistic" ... read more

    Pros: Price, handling, weight, speed.

    Pros: Nice styling, price, and established aftermarket.
    Cons: I prefer S model fairing and fuel injection like on new SV650's.

    Summary: I just got my 1999 SV650, which is basically the same as the 2002, and I love it. It's a great beginner bike, and has a good number of aftermarket parts readily available. V-twin engine has nice torque and a good sound. I would prefer having the ... read more

    Pros: Easy, responsive handling, nice motor, reliable.
    Cons: Budget suspension and brakes ruin sport applications.

    Summary: The used naked SV I got 3 years ago introduced me to the world of sport riding, being my first big bike. During my ownership I've had the chance to ride numerous other (sports or not) bikes and my verdict is that the SV is a fabulous commuter and a very ... read more

    Pros: The SV650 - Solid value at a great price.
    Cons: Makes riding almost too easy.

    Cons: Hard seat and quiet exhaust

    Summary: The first thing to get my attention was the engine. Then I sat on her, and it was true love. I have found the bike to be very powerful, and extremely nimble. You just think about the turn and the bike responds. I had to install bolt on clip-ons to ... read more
