yup those guys that race them do alot of mods to them, top speed takes longer to achieve than an inline bike, sv will take turn better but in straights an inline will catch up alot quicker

they don't race the same class. A stock 600rr will kill a modded sv650 in every aspect.

It teaches you corner speed and at the track that is were the real time is made up not straights. With an sv your down on power compared to just about everything out there but your left with usable power. Less power also means you come into turns at a lower speed (130ish vs 160+) making it easier to set up for that turn and brake for it properly and not over brake it. (if that makes sense)

The chassis is great once you have upgraded the suspension. Comfy riding position esp with dirt bike bars added on.

+ it will put a grin on your face when you see 600/1000 riders looking over at you asking themselves hows a flipping SV650 is passing me mid corner.

wasn't there so I can't disagree with you big fella but I reckon your talking about the first race of the 2007 championship when Casey Stoners 800 Desmo Ducati absolutely annialated everything down the long straight. Mainly Rossi's 800 Yamaha

how modded of an sv are we talking here? there are sv's pumping out 85-90 hp with GSXR built front ends, built rear etc........... A stock cbr would have a very difficult time against such a bike. The trac/riders play some small factor in the equation as well
