sv650 is coming back

hot for 2013 the sv650 is coming back. I know alot of us triumph owners have had, or still own one.

take a look, i think it might be a good option to go for. But it looks like it got alot of its styling cues from the striple.

Def has targeted the Striple, as far as appearance. I wonder if they will be bringing out a faired version?

Looks Jap and ugly.... honestly I look back at the SV and it Looks Horrible... but still really like the bike. just not the mush suspension, seating, reach from bars to seat, sloppy shifting, crappy brakes...

I really liked the motor thats about it now. lol

Not quite my cup of tea. Looks like a STR and a Monster had a offspring.

Had actually been thinking of picking up a used SV650 for a track bike. However, I am now aiming towards a used R6. Since I plan to race as well. Much more opportunities to race in that class around here.

The SV never really went away. That looks like a re-badged Gladius.

+1.

And the SV was always a way better looking bike than the Gladius!

If they do come out with a half faired version like last time, and it looks decent. Ill probably try and grab one.

I agree that the SV cant compare to alot of bikes, but for just having fun riding around town, the suspension & brakes were more than enough, you cant ***** about the shifting with how clunky ours are. And it was alot more comfortable.

All in all it was a great bike to just hop on and kick around town for a while and on some of the curvier rural roads. Always left a smile on my face.

I do like it to some degree, I am not a fan of Japanese Bikes, they are rock solid and will run forever, but they don't do it for me.
The SV650 sold well for many reasons, price and reliability. In todays market those core values are still alive and well. There is no doubt that Suzuki will sell more than a few of these.

No doubt, but I am wondering why they dropped the Gladius name. This is essentially the same bike as the Gladius but with a different name, which was a pretty substantial redesign of the... SV650... ?

Think they went to far into "chick bike" with the Gladius name, and Suzuki is trying to butch it back up again?

My wife told me when we were looking for her a bike that the Gladius is too much of a chick bike. What she really wanted was the Daytona I am ridding, but after trying it out she realized the step over is way to tall for her to feel confident on. She is only 5'nothin and the Daytona isn't exactly built for her.

She LOVES the redesigned ex250 though, and it fits her perfect.
