Excellent Read! Glad to see Ashley and Fonz in the mix. I agree the SV needs some styling help. However, on the SVrider.com has some great customized SVs. I did like the curvy first gen SV better.... However, having said that because the SV is a great package with lots of after market stuff, I predict it will live much longer than the Kawasaki twin.. If you are looking for a great first bike don't do what I did, buy a 600 Supersport, get the SV and use the saved cash for track time and all the upgraded parts Gabe mentioned.



Great job guys!

Great article!

Made me want to go out and buy another SV650. It's good to know though that there is another viable option in "fun and easy to ride" category.

Keep up the great work with your comparisons and interpretive dance moves(by far the hardest I have laughed at anything on MO

Have eagerly awaited this test, heartily agree. Love my nekkid SVee more than my R6 (stolen). As my 6th bike over 25 yrs, bonded with it more than any other including R6 and Fizzer1000. Stock rubber amzes me-can hardly wait to spoon on M1s! Team Promotion, here we come.

Looks like life is good for beginner/reentry riders, budget track day types and for those who want a second bike, too.



Ahh yes, Gabe. The moto-gods have indeed smiled upon us.

Thanks y'all, guys and Ashley, for finally doing this comparo. I've been whining for years about the lack of a "real" beginner bike like the middleweights of the late 70's-early 80's. The SV is close but not quite, still a bit of a strange ride for a beginner. The EX500 was perfect, the new 650 twin should be the kat's meow for a new rider. Even the lack of top-end compared to the SV is a good thing for a newbie! And when they're ready they can transition to the SV and ENJOY THE RIDE!!!

How is it that the SV is "completely revamped for 2006?" AFAIK, it's not even a little revamped, let alone 'completely...did I miss some big news?
