Motorcyles of the future will not feature engines. It will be a lighter machine, thus faster.

I hope not. I'm getting old and my legs don't move like they used to.

Really? That's certainly informative! I'm currently saving up for an SV650, but haven't found anyone around here who has one so I could take it for a short spin. I've actually seen comments to the reverse, so this is really interesting.

Anything else you don't like about it? What do you think has better handling? I want to be informed now, dammit!

Don't get me wrong!
The SV line is a very sweet bike.
The handling is just a little sloppy for me.
I'm more accustom to a GSXR.
You get what you pay for!
I also recommend the SV 650 to any Newbie that refuses to look at the 250's or 500's.
It has a great power range and handles great for anything other than keeping up with a seasoned knee dragger.
Just for the record;
I have a buddy that does quit well on his SV650S with suspension up grades!

If it is a photoshop job its a good one. And if so the Streetfighter guys need to jump on the design and start manufacturing them. I would pay a pretty penny for one today. I don't like the way my SV's front end looks. I have been looking at different aftermarket stuff but nothing yet. Wild Hair Acc. has a big selection of windshield fairings for SV's, but thier pictures don't give them any justice. They need better pics.
