Yeah, suzuki finally stopped being a prick and included the lower fairing. Probably because of the Ninja 650R.

I like the full better, and it gives the buyer the option to remove it for the naked look if they want it.

whoa... I like.

I think I just found my next bike. although... the color options arent anything special...



otherwise is there anything different between this and the old model?
They bumped the price by $400 tho... I think I'd still go for the older naked version if I found a good deal.
but yeah gotta love those vtwins

The SV's are a great bike. The only real negative is the suspension.

I've been thinking about getting one for a long time now... If I can find a deal and scrounge up the cash I'll buy one next spring. all faults aside its a very nice bike, and its got character (not just another boring I4 600 ).

Flippin LOVE it.... I've always been a fan of the SV, but knew if I ever got one, I'd plunk down the extra $1000 to get the fairings. Looks excellent... and I think now that it looks more like a true sportbike, it'll have a wider appeal.
