Suzuki's SV650AK8 & SV650SAK8

Suzuki's SV650 range has two new models, the SV650AK8 and SV650SAK8 ABS-equipped V-twin sportsbikes.

The SV650 sportsbikes are the latest models in the Suzuki range with ABS.

At the heart of both the SV650 and SV650S ABS models sits Suzuki's proven 645cc, DOHC, 90 degree V-twin engine tuned to deliver broad powerband and crisp throttle response with class-leading power and torque.

Suzuki's advanced Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) digital fuel-injection system with 39mm throttle bodies provides seamless, linear throttle response and strong low-to-mid range torque.

Offering a comfortable upright riding position with a short reach to the handlebars and modest 800mm seat height, the SV650 and SV650S ABS models feature 41mm-stanchion-tube front forks and progressive-link rear suspension both with adjustable spring preload.

Combining sporty styling with practicality, the Suzuki SV650 and SV650S ABS versions include a conveniently located passenger grab bar, luggage tie-down hooks and a large under-seat storage compartment and 17.0-litre fuel tank, packaged with a modern black mainframe, swingarm and wheels.

Each with its own distinct personality, the SV650 ABS styling features a single 70mm multi-reflector halogen headlight, while the SV650S ABS incorporates a sporty half-fairing with dual multi-reflector halogen headlights.

Featuring a two-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty, the Suzuki SV650AK8 is now available in Candy Blue at an SRP of $9,990*, with the SV650SAK8 available in Metallic Grey at an SRP of $10,490*.

* Prices are inclusive of GST. On-road costs additional.

Motorcycle Barbie

Todays Herald Sun shows a picture of a crazy Motorcyclist riding along Melbourne's Eastern Freeway at 100km/h with a barbecue strapped to his body.
Apparently a passing motorist photographed the rider on Sunday evening, presumably returning from an Australia Day barbie.
I'd say he would have needed a bit of help to get the Barbie strapped on.
