Did I mention 65 lb/ft at 3,000 rpms? I'm addicted to mine. Ride 600's at the track but no more I4's on the street.
Any SV is great street ride. Twins are perfect for torqueing around town.

Don't rule out the triples either. Street triple is also economical and own and just as much fun to ride as the 650 twins.

The Sv is an all around nicer bike than the 650r. Looks aside... it's smoother and more updated.
But the 650r sits more upright, yet is easy to lower bars.

^ this.

And they last FOREVER. Mines at 27k, and I fully expect another 40000 out of it with a couple valve checks and some oil changes.

And you can get the S with windscreen and just put on helibars if you don't want true clip Ons... Though the stock ones are already raised and inch or two
