2005 Suzuki SV1000
The SV1000 brings a modern new edge to the V-twin experience and ofers a change from in-line fours. A more upright riding position with repositioned footrests and tubular bars differentiate the SV1000 from its SV1000S stablemate.
A vibrant, litre-class V-Twin delivering thumping drive out of corners along with a spine-tingling exhaust note. A compact lightweight chassis providing razor-sharp responses and a stream of dependable feedback from every twist, turn and bump in the tarmac. The SV1000, a no-nonsense naked roadster with a smartly packaged combination of advanced features - innovative SDTV (Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve) digital fuel injection, aluminium-alloy truss frame, comfortable riding position, and more - is ready to serve up what every true biker craves: a stimulating dialogue between road and rider. Cruising through town, taking on a fast country switchback - whatever the road, the SV1000 is in its element, beckoning you to try them all.
996cc, 90-degree V-twin, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valves-per-cylinder engine, tuned to produce a broad powerband with exceptional low- and mid-rpm torque and throttle response.
High-quality engine components include forged-aluminum-alloy pistons shaped to reduce reciprocating weight, quench-hardened and tempered chrome-moly-steel connecting rods, and SCEM (Suzuki Composite
Electrochemical Material)-plated aluminium-alloy cylinders selected for high durability, light weight and better heat transfer.
Downdraft, straight-port cylinder head and compact, 11.3:1-compression-ratio combustion chamber deliver efficient performance.
Unique gear-and-chain cam drive system helps keep the engine compact and reduce mechanical losses.
Back-torque-limiting clutch system contributes to smoother downshifts. Large-diameter clutch plates and hydraulic clutch-actuating system provide a relatively light clutch-lever feel.
Innovative Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) digital fuel-injection system results in a more seamless, linear
throttle response, along with increased low- and mid-rpm torque.
An Auto Fast Idle System enhances the engine's startability.
The engine rpm sensor has a 22-trigger-pole design, increasing fuel-injection precision and reducing exhaust emission.
Suzuki Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system further reduces exhaust emissions.
An O2 feedback system is additionally fitted for Europe. SV1000 for Europe comfortably clears the Euro 2
requirements for emissions of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides.
The innovative aluminium-alloy truss frame's main sections are each made as a single, precision die-casting using high-vacuum moulding technology, resulting in a sophisticated, highly efficient design.
The 46 mm-stanchion-tube front fork and piggyback-reservoir shock absorber both feature adjustable spring
preload and adjustable rebound and compression damping.
120/70ZR17 and 180/55ZR17 radial tyres.
310 mm floating-disc front brakes; 220 mm rear disc brake.
