2017 Suzuki SV650 Video Review | A Return to Form

2017 Suzuki SV650 Video Review

Affordable, middle-weight motorcycles have attracted much attention from OEMs recently, but one that has captivated riders since 1999 is the Suzuki SV650. For 2017, Suzuki returned to true SV form, and honed in on what connected motorcyclists with the SV650: affordability, performance, and utility.

In this video, I give a brief run down of the 2017 Suzuki SV650 while donning a jacket that is probably too tight. The SV650 has always been a stellar beginner to intermediate motorcycle. But it’s more than that; look at any forum where the topic “what should I get as a first bike” comes up, and more often than not, the SV650 will be highly regarded.

Great as a beginning platform, the SV650, with a little bit of work, has done more than its fair share of time out on the track as well. It’s a machine that can hit a wide variety of riders and skill levels. I walked away impressed with the latest rendition of the Suzuki SV650, citing the 645cc V-twin engine as one of its strongest attributes. Combine that with great handling and an extremely compliant nature, and owners should be quite happy.

Of course, there are a few critiques, but there’s no need to fret. We discuss those aspects, as well as how to minimize them. So sit back, and take a look at the Ultimate Motorcycling 2017 Suzuki SV650 video review.
