In 1999 Suzuki introduced the SV-650 as a budget entry to the naked bike market with power from a 90-degree V-twin, but it was anything but budget when it came to technology. With dual-overhead cams and 4-valves per cylinder the 645cc V-twin pushed 69 horsepower into a competent suspension for a surprisingly good overall ride…and you could get it with a fairing if the nekkid bike thing wasn’t your thing. Find this 2000 Suzuki SV-650 offered for $2,200 in Bloomington, CA via craigslist. Seller submission from Andy.
From the seller:
Trite but true: Hate to sell, need room for new bike.
I bought this bike about 6 months ago intending to street ride as well
as track day it. It’s fully safety-wired. My mechanic made some needed
improvements, we added turn signals, brake lights, license plate light,
headlight. The California license is current. Everything works great.
Has nice billet foot controls, Race Tech fork emulators and an Ohlins
shock. GPR Stabilizer. Included is front and rear stands, a couple extra
mufflers of different design and a couple tires. the paint job is via
rattle can, but it looks really good, usual wear. Title in hand.
This is a one-off bike. The fairings/bodywork are imported European
stuff that you can’t buy anymore. I really hate selling this, I rent and
my garage is small. This bike would be perfect for that new Lightweight
Twins class at Willow. Or AHRMA. Text or email me.
