BEST MIDDLEWEIGHT AWARD
The Suzuki SV650X has won the award for Best Middleweight in the recent AutoTrader Best Bike Awards 2018. The cafe racer-inspired V-twin impressed judges, with its fun character and impressive handling characteristics.
The panel of judges - TV actor and motorcycle enthusiast Andrew Shim, Robert Morphet, who established AutoTrader motorcycles in 1996, and renowned journalist Phil West - selected the Suzuki SV650X, known for its versatile and torque-filled V-twin engine, as it fended off competition from its rivals.
Presenting the newest member of the SV family, the SV650X. It comes with the latest Suzuki innovations and will set the bar even higher for V-Twin fun and performance with added café racer flare.
The V-Twin engine is a marvel of engineering with superb versatility. While at lower RPM, this engine delivers powerful torque that’s easy to handle and a deep robust sound. Open the throttle to mid-range, and the power of the engine’s response is linear and smooth, yet always under your control. Then at higher RPM, the V-Twin has performance ready to go.
The SV650X is equipped with clip on handlebars compared to the standard straight bars on the standard SV650. These clip on bars encourage a sporty riding position, and hark back to the days of the original café racers.
