It's muuuch better than the 650's. Not that it can't be improved, it can and by quite a bit, but it's usable as is from the factory especially for lighter riders.

It's basically a prior generation Gixxer 600 suspension setup, much better than the SV650 stock setup. It still has room for improvement, we got enough requests for upgrades that we finally put revalve packages for the SV1000 in the online store at www.SVRaceShop.com.

Like a night and day difference in my experience, the shock actually removes shock and the forks are pretty good for us mere mortals from the factory. I personally wasn't looking to improve mine.

The Sv 1000 suspension package is the same of the old Gixxer 600...

I think that the front frork is too soft for me even if I have done all the regulation to improv the strength...I will probably buy an Hyperpro kit with progressive springs...
Here in Italy I will pay the kit assembled 250euro...
