    Should we expect the SV's to start looking like this?

    Koreans learn fast (sometimes) I suspect the second generation GT650 is a vast improvement

    they are certainly keeping up with current styling demands better than the jap manufacturers

    God I hope the SV ends up like that. They really need to spice it up a bit...

    Here's a pic of the 2008 Suzuki SV1000 Classic - Special UK Edition

    Doesn't look much different from 2007 US version

    I read somewhere recently that they actually manu'd a lot of parts FOR Suzuki early on in the SV's life. Haven't been able to find anything else on that though...

    The naked SV1k hasn't been available in this country for a few years now. Can only get SVs's.

    Yup...hoping we will see an upped displacement something "V" Twin from Suzuki....although a GSV variant would be righteous....

    Hyosung did have help, and borrowed things from Suzuki...They are still behind on engines and handling though. Not much write-ups because they haven't changed anything in a couple of years now.
