Hi, I'm new here. I'm 64 and started riding four years ago, out of the blue, after 40 years away.Have been through eight different bikes in this short time.

Ride an 02 FZ-1. Had a lot of bikes recently, mostly cruisers, including a Diavel and a Raider. Read about the SV-650, interested in it. I understand there are models where one can sit a little more upright. I think that is the SV-650 without an "S." That's what I'd like to find

I need help to find what model to look at, and what years I might want.

I live in PA right next to MD and DE, in good bike country.

Thanks!!

Bob

Yes, you want the SV650 and not the SV650S.
For simplicity sake, look for anything 2004 and up. They're all practically the same.
The biggest change (other than paint) is the additional spark plug (2x cylinder) which came in 2007 and the later models with ABS. Otherwise, they're all just about the same bike year to year.

Oh God! it was bad enough that for years we had to be riding a "girls' bike." Now we'ere riding an "old guy" bike, too?

:D Welcome Bob. Ride well and be happy.
