Suzuki SV650 Successor With Parallel-Twin Engine Spied

Suzuki recently spotted testing new motorcycles in Europe, which appears to be the eventual successor to the SV650.

  • New generation Suzuki SV650 with parallel-twin engine caught testing.
  • Features new bodywork including a new front LED headlamp. 

The naked motorcycle has been running Suzuki’s trusted 645cc V-Twin engine since its introduction in 1999.

Since then, Suzuki has only run a minor update to ensure the bike complies with the global emission standards. 

On that note, Suzuki is finally ready to up the ante by introducing a new generation SV650 running on an all-new 700cc parallel-twin engine.

That said, the SV650 successor was recently caught undergoing road test in Europe, according to

Based on these spy photos, we can see an all-new bodywork, including a modern front fascia with a horizontal LED headlamp similar to the firm’s latest GSX-S1000. 

Despite the heavily taped-up bodywork and front fender, the new generation SV650 appears more aggressive and bolder.

Also, based on the photos, we got the chance to see a clearer look into Suzuki’s newest parallel-twin platform. Other notable features include an inverted front fork and Nissin brake callipers.

While technical details remain scarce, we know now that Suzuki has put in a lot of work to introduce the SV650 successor.

However, with a new engine configuration, the House of Hamamatsu will likely drop the SV650 nomenclature for something new. 

An SP700, perhaps? We’ll soon find out!
