Special Pricing Announced For 2016 Suzuki SV650

Special pricing announced for Suzuki's 2016 SV650

Suzuki Australia has announced special introductory pricing for the all-new SV650 ahead of its arrival in Australian distributorships next month.

Since its original release in 1999, the SV650 has been a very popular learner approved motorcycle and the new and vastly improved model has been receiving good reviews overseas.

Special Pricing Announced For 2016 Suzuki SV650With so many bikes in the learner market powered by parallel twin engines, the SV650’s V-Twin powerplant instantly sets it apart.

Apart from it’s point of difference, Suzuki believes the V-Twin’s linear power delivery throughout the rev range offers the best engine characteristics for this market.

The 645cc engine has been refined with over 60 redesigned parts and components.

It delivers strong torque in the low-to-mid rpm range whilst still running smoothly at higher speeds. The engine produces 35kW at 8,500 rpm and 56.5Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. Fuel economy has also been improved.

That helps make the SV650 a very versatile bike and a great choice for daily commutes or weekend excursions.
Suzuki has also refined the frame and added some new technology to the 2016 SV650.

There are over 80 new parts built into the new chassis all designed to achieve a lighter mass and slimmer body work.

At its widest point the fuel tank has been reduced by 64.5mm and the SV650 has the lowest seat height in its class at 785mm.

All this helps make the bike more manageable for less experienced riders.

Other new features include larger brakes with ABS as standard.

The new SV650 also has a new Low RPM Assist function which raises the engine rpm in launching or low rpm riding conditions. The Low RPM Assist system helps the rider achieve a smoother take-off and makes low speed riding such as through traffic or stop-start scenarios easier.

Suzuki’s special introductory pricing of $9,990 ride away makes the bike very affordable too.

It will be available from next month in three striking colour schemes Pearl Mira Red, Pearl Glacier White and Metallic Matte Black.
