It doesn't list the SV650. I'm guessing the SV went the way of the dinosaur.

You're a little behind the times, but yes, it did.

It is very much in evidence on the Canadian site. I went to my dealer last week to see if he could get one for me. The short answer was "no".

Re: Suzuki discontinued SV650

That really is a shame. The bike has nearly a cult-like following. It's a shame Suzuki couldn't tap into that with their marketing. Epic failure on their part IMO.

Heck, I own a Ducati and I'm here saying this.

Re: Suzuki discontinued SV650

In North America yes, but in parts of Europe, such as the UK, the SV650 still lives on. I believe it was discontinued one year, and they brought it back in 2011 only in S form.

That kind of made no sense to me. Why would you buy an SV650S model when a GSXR600 costs only a little bit more? Keep the N model and get rid of the S. The N looks better anyway.

That's probably why. After a certain point the used market is bigger than the new market.

The same thing happened with the Honda Prelude. The last couple of new cars sat forever and never sold. Meanwhile the used ones have a cult following.

Many riders actually find value in the virtues of the SV. They notably include not having to rev past 6000 rpm all the time to have useful torque and the resultant savings in fuel. I know you can't belioeve this, but gasoline is comparatively cheap in the USA compared to most European countries. And in the more rational and civilized countries, inexperienced riders can't just hop on a 100+hp bike and wheelie out of the showroom, as we can here in the good old Free-by-God US of A.
