2016 Suzuki SV650 First Look

Suzuki has unveiled its 2016 SV650, announcing that the middleweight V-twin is going "back to its origin." The new bike is based on the previous SFV650/Gladius models, but has more than 140 components redesigned. Peak power is up to 75 (claimed) horsepower from 71 hp, while curb weight drops by more than 17 pounds for the ABS model.

Updates to the SV650 include a low-rpm assist mode, which activates the bike's idle speed control valve at low engine revs to assist with leaving a stop and running in stop-and-go traffic. The bike also features Suzuki's Easy Start system from the GSX-S1000, which requires only a momentary push on the starter button to start the engine. The engine is now Euro 4 compliant, with updates including new pistons with resin-coated skirts, a new exhaust system, and staggered funnels in the airbox.

The seat height is a low 30.9 inches, and a slimmer midsection and fuel tank further eases the reach to the ground.

Scroll through the gallery above to see the full list of updates for the 2016 Suzuki SV650.
