2005 Suzuki SV1000S

Suzuki SV1000S


New black-painted frame, swingarm, and wheels for more sport appearance.

Increased engine performance with higher 11.6:1 compression ratio, 20% less crank inertia, larger 54mm throttle bodies, shorter airbox inlet tube, revised cam timing and two air pressure sensors per cylinder for more precise fuel injection volume control.

California model equipped with catalyst in exhaust to reduce emissions Headlight switches off during startup to reduce load on battery.

Engine Features

Liquid-cooled, 996cc 90 degree V-twin, DOHC 8-valve engine - tuned for exceptional low-to-mid rpm throttle response and torque.

Electronic fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve System (SDTV) - maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response and high torque output - includes Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS).

32-bit ECM with 22-trigger pole rpm sensor, provides more precise control of ignition timing and injector operation for each cylinder.

Large, 54mm throttle bodies fed by a 9.0 liter airbox with a flat-panel air filter for easy maintenance.

Pulsed-air injection system (PAIR) helps reduce emissions.

Semi-gear driven valve system simplifies maintenance and minimizes cam sprocket size and engine height for optimum engine placement.

Lightweight shim-under-bucket valve system operates 36 mm intake and 33mm exhaust valves set at a narrow 29 degree included valve angle - produces a compact combustion chamber and 11.6:1 compression ratio SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electro-chemical Material) plated cylinders minimize cylinder size and improve heat dissipation.

Six-speed transmission features a wide diameter, hydraulically-operated clutch with back-torque limiter system - clutch cover includes a large-volume crankcase breather system.

High efficiency liquid-cooling system for optimum engine operation temperature - includes compact oil cooler.

Lightweight magnesium valve covers, ignition cover, and sound deadening plastic outer clutch cover.

Chassis Features

Attractive stainless steel exhaust system with aluminum mufflers tuned to enhance the engine's power characteristics and torque output.

Sleek half-fairing features dual 60/55W headlights with running lights and folding mirrors.

Compact instrument cluster includes analog tach, LCD speedometer, odometer/tripmeters, and temperature gauge, plus LCD clock and low fuel warning light.

Steeply-angled tail section houses unique vertically-styled, high visibility LED taillight and compact rear fender.

Narrow, lightweight aluminum truss-style frame constructed with high-vacuum die-cast process for more consistent strength and fewer individual welded sections.

Low seat height and subframe position provide a comfortable seating position for both rider and passenger.

Cast aluminum handlebars connect to a fully adjustable 46 mm, cartridge-style front fork with 4.72 inches of wheel travel for sport performance and a comfortable ride.

Aluminum swingarm and link-type rear suspension features a fully adjustable piggyback style shock absorber with 5.12 inches of wheel travel.

Dual front disc brakes with large 310mm rotors and four-piston calipers, plus single-disc rear brake with 220mm rotor and dual-piston rear caliper.

Lightweight cast aluminum wheels - F: 3.50 x 17 with 120/17 radial tire, R: 5.5 x 17 with 180/55 rear tyre.

Large under-seat storage area, passenger grab-bar and tie-down hooks 4.5 gallon fuel tank with low-fuel warning light.
