I've had both the first Gen and 2nd, both S and N.

I currently own an N model, Racetech forks, Ohlins rear shock, PCIII, M4 full system, BMC, modded airbox, steel braided lines and a radial master cylinder with EBC GFA pads, Attack rearsets, Convertibars and a few other goodies.

They're awesome bikes! Good for everything from sport touring (with either a Sargent or Corbin seat) to track days.

Why do you ask?

I have 2001 SV650S.
It has 636 shock, rearset jackup plates, Leo Vince carbon fiber slip on... some other minor things I can't remember.
Bike currently has 25,000 miles.
It never caused any problem other than basic maintenance.
I'll ride this thing until it falls apart.
Love the freakin bike.

Oh, the gas mileage.
I don't know.
Sorry.

I'm a tree hugger.
I recycle everything and drive a car with good gas mileage.
But when I get on a bike, I turn into a city who doesn't care about anything but momentary fun.
When I get on a bike, it's time to have fun.
Gas price's not in my head.

i have an 01 naked and a little over 20k miles on it. i have probably put something like 1,300 or so miles on it. im not sure what the exact mileage is, but i can go for about a week and a half of commuting before my sweet $15 fill up. lol, i love when truck drivers tell me they wish they were driving what i am, and it's just them in that big truck.

also, my riding style is usually a relaxed pace on the way to work and sporty on the way back home or on the weekends

I've got an '05 S that I picked up from Patrick.... no performance mods but I did add lower fairings and a set of bark busters from a Vstrom.

I commute with it daily and I typicaly keep it in the 5-6K range getting me a good 47-50 MPG ... it's a bike that's lots of fun to ride and great on the track (so I've been told)

'00 SV650. Suspensionis greatly modified, but the drivetrain is as stock as when it rolled off the assembly line; bike has 40,000 miles.

45-50 on my commute. However, I got 56 this weekend tooling around the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee, though. Keep the speeds down, and the mileage goes up...

wish I had a motard / dual sport, it'll be next








'o7 S
636 rear shock, 1k sonic springs, r6 throttle tube and thats it.
I get about 50 mpg +/-
My daily commute is about 50ish miles round trip, and its crazy fun on the track
if you get one that still has the stock tires, get rid of them. I totally love my Conti Road attacks, they seem to be wearing well despite my very straight line commute and they stuck really well at the track.

I tend to ride heavy handed most of the time, and unfortunately a chunk of my commute is stop and go

I'll get about 200 miles out of a tank of gas, it goes dry at 211 under normal riding [don't ask how I know], and I was surprised how little gas I went tru at the track. I maybe added 2 gallons between one of the sessions and there's still enough in there for me to get to work and home today [didn't ride yesterday], as the fuel light barely came on halfway to work today
