Default I did it, Pulled the trigger on a New SV1000

$6900 out the door, everything included. I think I got a good deal. Only catch, it's a left-over '06 with zero miles and a full warranty.

Seems that they are discontinuing the SV1000 and 2007 is the last year for it, who knows what Suzuki is planning!

Wow that's a killer price Mark! I love my dad's SV650, if it weren't for the house-saving I'd be all over the 1000. Good luck with it!

Actually, it will be slower than the Miata. Although both will trap about 120 in the 1/4 mile when all is said and done. I didn't buy the SV for HP, if that were the case, I probably would have gotten something else. I really wanted something fuel injected and reliable.

I wanted a narrow V-4 or V-twin bike... the New Interceptor is an overweight 500 Lb underpowered (800 cc) pig and the SV 1000 weighs about 410 Lbs and has another 30 HP over the Interceptor. Hopefully it's as good as it's loyal fan base raves about. I am having the bike shipped out here, I had to search the net for the deal I got.

Nice, congrats

My roommate's set on selling his ninja 250 this summer and getting an SV650. He doesn't like me pulling away from him all the time, so he wants to beat me by 30cc's

It was 55 degrees today, so we got to go for a 200 mile ride, our first decent ride this year

Very sweet ride, and $6.9k OTD is an awesome price. I've got an '06 SV650 and absolutely love it.

Blue or black?

Is it the "S" or the unfaired? There's something to be said about a traditional hooligan bike. It was a sad day when I sold my Aprilia Falco and I'll never go back to a clip-on bike.
Here in a few years, it'll be hard not to go back to a big twin as well I loved the TL1000s in a straight line when they made them... but that rear shock liked to kill you. The SV1000 is a machine and a half... it'll be tough to justify a Tuono or a SpeedTriple over one. I'll probably puss out and end up with a FZ1000 or a Futura... maybe an FJ1000 if I really lose my ballz.

Nice find man.

I looked into the SV650 awhile back and they are great bikes. Never really looked at the SV1000 cause 1L still scare me. I ended up with an R6 and rode it daily even in the winter(GA so no snow) until it was stolen

SamS how is the Ducati? Any bad points to it?

Mine's the unfaired model. SV650N I call it. As to the 1000, I don't think there was a non-S version, at least in the past few years. Someone correct me?

I love my Duc. The only bad things about it are maintenance costs (which they supposedly improved on for '07+ models) and I'd probably go bigger than 620 if I could afford the insurance (I just turned 20, and the Monster 620 is only $25/month for full coverage).

I've had two cbr 600's, and definitely prefer the torque of a twin and it's hard to beat the sound too. I looked at SV650's a little, but I've wanted a Ducati since I was like 12, and couldn't resist the allure of an Italian bike for nearly the same price.

The R6 is faster in the 1/4 mile than the SV1000.

There is only the S, the full fairing is optional, I am not going to get the extra fairings as I like it a little closer to being naked.

The SV1000 is not terribly fast for a 1 liter bike, it's an 11.20/120 MPH 1/4 mile bike. Most 600's and 750's will show it taillights once the RPMs climb. It's as one person said, the swiss army knife of bikes... it does alot very well. Specializes in little though, but what you want in a street bike.

wow never would have expect that. I got mine modded as it was an ex stunt bike so it had an ungodly rear spocket, and a cage on it.

So when is the DOD so we can see some photos.
