2005 Suzuki SV1000S from United Kingdom
A gorgeous looking sporty v twin at a really keen price
Nothing so far.
For all the talk of torque (excuse the pun) of big v twins, I'm surprised how much you have to work the gearbox to get the best out of the motor.
That said, it still propels you forward like a Saturn rocket.
The brakes are excellent, and the handling and suspension are more than up to the job.
Fuel economy is reasonable, although it would benefit from a slightly larger tank.
The only downside is the rubbish stock seat. Trips of more than a 100 miles can be very uncomfortable. I'm going to fit a Corbin or Sargent to mine.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
