2019 Suzuki SV650 -V-TWIN POWER FOR THE STREET. For 2019, Suzuki introduces a new version of an iconic motorcycle that embodies the sporty personality that only a lively, mid-sized V-twin roadster can deliver. The new SV650 ABS* has a polished power plant that provides increased performance with low emissions and outstanding fuel economy, mated to refined trim and lightweight chassis that delivers a sporty, exciting ride. Like its predecessors, the 2018 SV650 ABS promises to have the sparkling performance, style and value that a broad range of riders will enjoy. Features may include: ENGINE 645cc DOHC 90°V-twin engine has been refined with more than 60 new parts to produce increased horsepower while conforming the latest emission requirements. The energy efficient engine has new pistons that were engineered with use of FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis to achieve optimal rigidity and weight. Each piston skirt has a special resin coating, and the other sliding part are tinned for less friction and greater durability – a first for a Suzuki motorcycle. Suzuki’s innovative L-shaped piston rings contribute to reduce blow-by gas, resulting in less emissions and greater combustion efficiency. SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material)-plated cylinders reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability. CHASSIS Dozens of new parts create a compact, lightweight chassis with slim bodywork that’s agile and fun to ride on a variety of streets – such as city traffic, highway, rural roads and winding roads. The ready-to-ride weight of the NEW SV650 ABS is 18 pounds less than the 2015 SFV650 ABS. The curb weight of the new SV650 is 15 pounds less than the SFV650. The high-strength steel, trellis-style frame is key to the motorcycle’s trim and intelligent dimensions. The seat height is just 785mm (30.9 in.) and is the lowest in the 600 – 800cc street bike class. The SV650’s fuel tank width is 64.5mm (2.5 in.) narrower than the 2015 SFV650 but maintains the same fuel capacity. The slim fuel tank and seat joint aids the rider touch the ground better at stops. ADDITIONAL Stylized Suzuki “S” 3-D emblems on the fuel tank and the fork upper bracket denotes the quality, sophistication and performance legacy of the brand.
