V-Twin fun and Performance
Presenting the newest member of the SV family, the SV650X. It comes with the latest Suzuki innovations and will set the bar even higher for V-Twin fun and performance with added café racer flare.
Dual Spark 90° V-Twin
The V-Twin engine is a marvel of engineering with superb versatility. While at lower RPM, 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’s response is linear and smooth, yet always under your control. Then at higher RPM, the V-Twin has performance ready to go.
Clip on handlebars
The SV650X is equipped with clip on handlebars compared to the standard straight bars on the standard SV650. These clip on bars encourage a sporty riding position, and hark back to the days of the original café racers.
Tuck and roll seat
The SV650X features a different seat design, the narrow, streamlined seat exudes retro looks and feel. The seat has soft cushioning, helping reduce rider fatigue, even in a sporty riding position.
With a remarkable ready to ride weight of only 198 kg, the SV650X makes manoeuvring and handling easy and pleasurable. The SV650X makes good use of its light weight with responsive acceleration, nimble handling and absolute confidence in manoeuvring. Riders of all levels can take to the city or winding roads and experience unrestricted fun.
The SV650X’s streamlined profile is the result of ergonomically shaped side panels and optimised seat design, which let you straddle the motorcycle with your feet on the ground if stopped or for easy changes of position while flowing through corners. The narrow, streamlined seat is 790 mm in height and is designed almost flat from front to rear, yet gives riders a high degree of grip in the upright position. Despite its ample 14.5 litre capacity, the fuel tank is slim and sports an ergonomic form for maximum rider comfort.
The front suspension system employs durable 41 mm telescopic right way upfront forks with 125 mm travel and are adjustable for pre-load. While the rear features link-type suspension with a stroke of 63 mm and is pre-load adjustable to one of 7 pre-defined settings. Together, the SV650X's suspension system ensures consistent ride-ability and sporty handling performance.
Wheels and Tyres
The five-spoke cast aluminium wheels create a sporty look. For an excellent balance of cornering performance and straight line speed stability, the SV650X uses 120/70ZR17M/C tyres for the front and 160/60ZR17M/C for the rear.
Brakes and ABS
