as den pointed out, an SV is $2k cheaper, but then you add an ohlins and full fairings it's about the same. my SV doesn't have inverted forks. i wish my SV had that kinda frame.

Not to ask a real question in the middle of a flaming thread, but is there a big difference between the amount of wind you get hit with on an SV compared to something like a gxsr or a zx6 when you're on the highway?

thanks

So far all I've read is ego ism. The bike is different and nobody here can ride to even a 650sv full potential much less a zx10. Boring.
