The new Suzuki SV650 will cost £5,499 when it goes on sale in the UK in April and will be available on Suzuki's PCP scheme for £95 per month.
With an initial deposit of £1,104.30, the SV can be yours from £95 over 37 months, with an optional final payment of £1,982.
At £5,499 the new SV is £250 cheaper than an ABS-equipped Yamaha MT-07 and £300 cheaper than an ABS Kawasaki ER-6n.
MCN's Tony Hoare recently rode the new model, which was unveiled at EICMA 2015, and was impressed: "The arrival of the SV will make things interesting in the middleweight arena, which was revived by 2014’s arrival of the MT-07. It’s not exactly a revolution, but the SV displays all the traits that made the first two generations so damned popular." The full test can be seen here.
The original SV650, which ran from 1999 to 2008 and is still available in the S guise, was well loved by those who rode it, and a popular bike for new riders thanks to it's torquey yet friendly engine and neutral handling. Suzuki GB Marketing Manager, Rob Cooper, said, "The new SV650 has something to offer everyone. The engineers in Japan have worked hard to make it nimble and sporty, giving it a narrow profile and agile chassis, and the extra peak power will be fun for riders of all ability levels and experience to explore. But it will still find favour with newer riders, looking for something that is easy and forgiving to ride."
