SVRider I have an 05 SV650S and love it. City riding it can't be beat, light to light I can keep up with liter bikes, and you can't beat the sound of a V twin!
They are a little light on the top end, but how often do you need to go over 130 mph?
As for price, yeah, definatly a bit steep. I picked mine up as a holdover demo, 1700 miles, and it was $4800 out the door, with a warranty.

papapoi My 06 sv650 has 14,000 miles i think blue book is only 3500 on them

1/2mV^2 i test drove one while i was shopping for a gsxr. they do have more torque but there is NO comparison between the top end of one and the other.

If you are looking for a crotch rocket there is substitute for the big four sport bikes. but if you just wanna have fun in the city and canyons. SVs are great.

in california i could have gotten an 03 sv650 with 1500mi for $3800. there was also a like new 05 for $4500 do what you want though.

JK_DILLA offer 3800, see what he says.

ebbs15 yeah like what's been said above... I think it's a bit too much for the miles... but they're good bikes... I know quite a few people that have SV650's that are track only bikes... if that tells you anything about they're performance...

sv-ridin-a-sv i have an 05 S model (w/upper fairing) and I love it. lots of torque. great for the twisties. run with liter bike all the time in the city and no problem keeping up.....don't know about the highway and open road.

as far as the's a little high especially if it's not the s model. i paid about the same from a dealer but mine only had 3000 miles.
