Suzuki SV 1000


You haven’t lived until you’ve accelerated hard out of a corner on a Suzuki SV1000S. Its liquid-cooled, 90-degree V-twin powerplant rewards you with a monstrous surge of torque and an incredibly wide powerband. The new SV1000S is built to be without question the most exciting V-twin sport bike you’ve ever ridden down a twisty road.

The SV1000S has handling to match its impressive powerplant. With technologically advanced chassis and suspension systems, it offers a superb combination of precise handling, solid stability and all-day riding comfort. And to increase its versatility, the fork and single piggyback-reservoir shock absorber are fully adjustable, so you can tune them to suit a variety of roads and riding styles.
