2020 Suzuki SV650 and SV650 ABS

Debuting in 1999, the Suzuki SV650 has enjoyed a constant evolution as it moves through the 21st century. Thanks to a torquey V-twin motor with a broad powerband and a stable chassis, the SV650 is a welcoming motorcycle.

2020 Suzuki SV650 (ABS) Buyer's Guide: Specs & Prices New riders, and well as experienced pilots, find quite a bit to like about the well-balanced 2020 Suzuki SV650.

The ergonomics are upright and naturally comfortable, and the sub-31-inch seat height makes the SV650 available to a broader range of motorcyclists. Suzuki’s unique Low RPM Assist feature helps prevents stalls off the line if you are less-skilled or less-attentive when letting out the clutch.

Dunlop Sportmax RoadSmart III tires provide plenty of grip in the canyons, yet offer long life. Twin 290mm front disc brakes do a great job of bringing the 432-pound SV650 down from speed, and have a nice touch around town. ABS is a $400 option on the 2020 Suzuki SV650, and we think it’s worth it if you ever ride in wet conditions.
