Question If your SV died today, what would you get?

If your SV was suddenly out of the picture (crashed, stolen, blown up, etc.), what would you replace it with?

Re: If your SV died today, what would you get?

Tough one. I really like my SV, so not sure if I'd get something different.

If the money wasn't a problem, maybe a Triple or a Shiver.

Re: If your SV died today, what would you get?

Triumph Street Triple R
Kawasaki Z1000
Aprilia Dorsoduro 750
Moto Guzzi Griso 8v SE

My list assumes the OP means something to fulfill the same mission as the SV. Yes, I know the Kawi is a literbike; it squeaks in as a naked standard.) If the OP means that there's just room in the garage for another bike, well then the list gets a lot longer.

At this point another SV. I have done this recently.

Maybe later on something different since the SV isn't being made anymore.
