I believe you can put a VFR rear rim on that then you can match the front rim style if you do the conversion. I hopped up hawk back in the day laid down about 72 hp back in it day. stock SV comes with that now I believe

My wife had one for a while. It was nimble, light and fun. Didn't have much on the top end, but handled nice. She was dragging the pegs and bodywork at Talladega GPR the day the above pic was taken. The previous owner had put modified RC30 fairings on the front and a Ducati tail on the back. The lowers lost a little bit of paint from dragging on the turns and I had to take them off. Cool bikes.

The Hawk was a very nice bike to track on. I earned my CMRA license on it. That's me in the middle at the start and it would carry me to my first trophy. The bike never gave me any problems and helped teach me that the rider was the most important factor in being fast. You could sink all the money you wanted into for the bike but in the end a good rider was what got it down the track fast.

Sorry man
I'm trying to put it back with my SV.

The SV does have the edge on power (I don't get to say that very often), but the CG of the SV seems to be higher so it changes direction a little slower than the Hawk. And the SV with the stock seat can be a little tall for the vertically challenged.
