I went to a shop, in MS, and got to look and sit on one. I like it, but I am not a big fan of the handlebars. It looks too much like a bicycle, just a bent bar. I was wondering, if I get one, is there anyone out there that makes a replacement?
Good question. Did you ask the dealer? This year is the bikes introductory year and custom/aftermarket parts are limited. Not sure what the forks look like. You might be able to throw some clip-ons on there but not sure. Or are you just talking about a better looking bar, but keep the height the same?
a similar sized renthal bar will do. I was looking for similar options for my SV naked. i had a good link but its gone and i cant find it, i'll look though. As for clip-ons, i dont think they will clear the fairing.
Clip-ons might work if you drop the forks in the triples and mount them on top. This will change the steering geometry quite a bit and also the clearance from the front fender to the lower pieces on the front end and full compression so be careful. I just put these on my Bandit http://www.suburban-machinery.com/sv650.htm and I like them alot. Pricey if you have to buy new(I got them used).
