Information: I bought this bike at the first opportunity I had after passing my full test, and my GOD did it fly!
I''d read reviews on SV650S''s and heard they were amazing as your first ''real'' bike, and are great even up to intermediate level - and if you''re into modding your bikes, advanced too! I didn''t overdo this bike either, I put on a black double-bubble screen, Carbon Can Co stainless steel oval exhaust, black lens shields, yellow hugger, yellow rim tape, swing arm jack-up kit (Dogbones), rearsets jack-up plates, downgeared sprockets. I also added carbon items like carbon fairing indicators, carbon dinky rear indicators, carbon yoke protector, tank protector, clock protector, fuel-cap protector, tax disc mount and levers (Carbon looks awesome with yellow, and black).
The bike itself is a dream to ride, you can flick it around corners on the racetrack, and ride it with clutch control through towns with ease. Has all the low to mid range grunt of a V-twin, so extremely quick acceleration and mid range power.
It''s an awesome bike to own, incredibly light and is more than capable for wheelies and stoppies!
