Suzuki’s sweet SV650 is back in 2016 with a heap of upgrades including a slimmer frame and an interesting low-rev electronic rider aid.
The brand-new Low RPM Assist function is deisgned to raise revs slightly when starting off or riding at very low speeds, and the company says it’ll make the bike more user-friendly.
Easiness and accessibility are the thrust of Suzuki’s many tweaks for the new SV, which will be available in Australia in mid-2016 as both full-power and learner-approved models.
It claims to have the lowest seat height in its class, at 785mm, but a new, slimmer frame and careful attention to the seat’s shape and width have made the standover height even lower than before, guaranteeing more riders than ever will get their feet flat on the ground.
Suzuki has even made the tank 64mm narrower overall.
The SV650 continues with the safety of anti-lock brakes but this time with an improved, lighter Nissin system.
Suzuki Australia hasn’t yet announced a price, nor the full spec, which will come closer to the bike’s release.
