yeah the extra weight definately concerned me, why is it even there?

Id like to find out the reason for the extra weight, if it isnt good, then its a deal breaker for me.

year on year, tighter noise and emission standards are making exhausts heavier (and uglier) unfort

the bike as a whole is pretty nasty though imo - though I was never a fan of the sv either. Still no USD forks suzi? box section swingarn, nasty built in rear passenger pegs etc

yuk

I think it is ok looking, just need to get rid of that exhaust and I think it would look a lot better.

Trellis frame huh? Might as well paint it red and call it a Ducati Monster 696...

Generation 1 w/ the rounded frame were the lightest(416lb), most of them made 65-69 HP, torque is in 42-44 ft-lb range, and had carbs. The gen 2, angular frames, weight went up to around 425 lb, fuel injection and a couple of small changes to the engine bumped the power up to 68-72 HP, torque output was about the same. The Gladius and current SVF 650, have a steel frame engine changes are more extensive for friction reduction, emissions, and better midrange throttle response and weight went up also. I have owned both generations of the SV, standard gen1, S gen2, they are fun bikes, seat to peg distance a bit more roomy than a street, suspension is low budget, to keep the price down, but a shock, fork work, and some brake up grades help them out. If and when I find a nice gen1, I wouldn't mind owning another. Plus if you are wanting to start racing, these are a good bike to learn the craft on, they also make good track bikes, but everything you make up in the corners w/ one gets lost on a straight away to bigger bikes which can be frustrating. Also owned a Vstrom 650 but that's another story and this post is long enough.

This is just the Gladius with out the name. Literally. The designation for the Gladius has always been SFV650. Now if Suzuki actually redesigned and returned to the SV designation I might be interested, except I'll be busy enjoying a Street triple by then.

It's not coming back until they fire the designer.
