An awesome bike, no wonder it’s so popular. I think the riding position is a little odd though. It’s like the shape of the tank prevents your thighs from getting a firm grip on the bike, which makes you slide forward when braking or down shifting. But the V2 engine is definitely a keeper. Put that engine in the chassis of the 2004 Yamaha FZ6 Fazer and I would consider swapping it for my Honda, (Almost that is). Besides the tank issue you could have tons of fun on the SV650, and in my point of view, the naked version is the only way to go.
