Suzuki’s reliable V-twin SV650 and SV650 ABS return as part of the 2023 model lineup.
The 2023 Suzuki SV650 and SV650 ABS are equipped with a V-twin engine that is both powerful and refined, delivering great middleweight performance. The 645cc, four-stroke DOHC, 90-degree V-twin engine has premium primary balance and smoothly pulls with authority from idle up to the 10,000 rpm redline. Suzuki’s Low RPM Assist feature, which reduces the chance of stalling by automatically adjusting engine speed during takeoff and low-speed running, is an example of sophisticated EFI technology.
The Glass Sparkle Black bodywork of the SV650 base model (MSRP $7,399) is complemented with a dark gray frame and red wheels. The trellis-style frame is built of high-strength steel tubes, ensuring low weight and a compact chassis. Up front, dual four-piston Tokico brake calipers grab a pair of 290mm fully floating stainless-steel rotors for powerful stopping power. On the Metallic Reflective Blue SV650 ABS (MSRP $7,849) the compact Anti-lock Brake System matches the braking performance to the available traction.
