When Suzuki introduced the SV650 in 1999, they had themselves an instant classic. They also had an amazing 1,000cc street bike V-Twin engine in the iconic TL1000R sport bike, so it didn’t take long for consumers to beg Suzuki for a SV1000 as well. Suzuki obliged them in 2003, and the resulting creation put down 108 horsepower and 69 ft-lbs of torque to the rear wheel. As stated in a BikeSocial review, “you will fall in love with that thumping V-twin motor that remains packed full of charm with a wicked exhaust note and stacks of grunt. It’s a cracking engine and while not amazingly powerful, is still a million miles away from an inline four in terms of character. Add to this bullet-proof reliability, cheap service costs and it is hard to argue against the SV.”

The SV1000 was available with a fairing and without – the latter is a rarer find and is more comfortable thanks to lower pegs and flat handlebars.

Manufactured in May of 2003, this example is VIN: JS1VT54A432104832. Engine #: T508-115745. The seller purchased this from Iconic six months ago.

The odometer shows 7,272 miles. The seller has ridden 1,170 miles during their ownership. The seller states they are selling this example because “I’m focusing more on track riding and I want a bike with a sport seat position. Otherwise I wouldn’t – it’s a dream to ride.

The seller states they have kept up with regular chain maintenance.

Yoshimura slip-on.

Frame sliders.

Protectors on the tail section.

Techspec tank grips.

ASV levers.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Michelin 2CT+ tires that have aged out.

The sale includes two keys. The original owner’s and service manuals will be included with the sale as well.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
The seller states the only blemish is a small dent that was on the motorcycle at time of purchase.

Currently located in Los Angeles, California, this Suzuki is offered on a clean California title with registration current through October 2023.
