While it may not stand out in any one way, the 2017 Suzuki SV650 is simply a great all-around bike. Whether grinding away at the ridiculously long peg feelers, or grinding your way through traffic, the SV650 is still the Little Bike That Could.
Very cool little bike. I still wonder why the DL650 (V-Strom) doesn’t have the trellis frame. Anyone out there know?
I believe the time has come for Suzuki to upgrade the Burgman 650 Scooter to a 750 utilizing the SECVT transmission. For older people like myself the Burgman is perfect. I owned one of the 03 models and really enjoyed riding it until the transmission gave up the ghost. If they do upgrade the Burgman, I certainly hope they install cruise control so it would make a wonderful touring machine. Suzuki may have to make adjustments to the body by making it a little wider and possibly a touch longer, and dual exhaust out both sides instead of two into one. Talk about a heck of a touring scooter. I’d certainly get one.
