Suzuki SV650X is an evolution of the concept and reveals
Suzuki will unveil a near-production dubbed cafe racer, Suzuki SV650X. And while it is not committing entirely to a manufacturing program it’s guaranteed to reach traders.
The company showed a concept version of the idea in March 2016 at the Osaka series. It shared the same look and was called the SV650 Rally. Therefore, it’s clear that the variant that is Suzuki SV650X is slightly toned-down and is a real manufacturing bike rather than just an idea. Changes compared to the Rally include a production-ready exhaust instead of the Yoshimura system. It’s also got mirrors rather than the bar-end-mounted versions of the Rally.
However, it keeps details such as the cowl, as well as the fog lights beneath the primary lamp and the same form.
Suzuki Motor Corporation will unveil the SV650X at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show – which takes place from 27 October to 5 November, an evolution of the SV650 Rally concept revealed at last year’s event.
‘Neo-retro’ design sees that the SV650X get a bikini fairing that is newly-styled and screen, fog lamps, clip-on handlebars, with a tuck-roll available as an accessory on the SV650 — completing the look.
The Japanese firm is presently assessing market reaction and client feedback before confirming production strategies.
Suzuki GB general manager, Paul de Lusignan, commented,”The SV650 Rally concept generated a lot of interest at last year’s series, with retro-styled machines proving very popular with riders. The SV650X is an evolution of the concept and reveals how that could translate into a production system. Currently, we cannot affirm a production schedule. We’ll first evaluate reactions to the SV650X before finalizing plans.”
