2018 - Suzuki SV650X

Taking design cues from the SV650 Rally Concept - which Suzuki showcased at the Osaka Motor Show in 2016 - the SV650X follows the same concept with a design that pays homage to the tarmac rally cars of the 1970s. The 'neo-retro' styling sees the SV650X get a new bikini fairing and tinted screen, clip-on handlebars, and a tuck-roll seat. The SV650X utilises the same punchy V-Twin engine as the standard SV650, and gets Suzuki's low-rpm assist and easy-start system. There are also new, preload adjustable front forks, which will feature across the SV range for 2018.

ALL ROADS ARE YOURS
If you’re looking to get out on the road on a sporty bike with café racerstyling, look no further than Suzuki’s SV650X. With its smooth-revving V-Twin engine tucked into a slim and lightweight trellis frame, the SV650X combines power and agility with classic café racer looks. Whether in stopand-go city traffic or on country roads, this bike delivers exhilaration and riding fun. No matter where you pull up to park, the retro appeal of the SV650X is eye-catching with its stylish slotted headlight cowling, tuck-androll seat and blacked-out rider and pillion footrests. And on your favourite stretch of twisties, Suzuki’s V-Twin machine’s smooth power and agile handling make the SV650X a thrill to ride.
