The motorcycle market was buzzing ever since Yamaha introduced the YZF-R7.
The new R7 now joins Aprilia RS660 and Honda CBR650R as a middleweight sports bike powered by the same CP2 engine found on its naked siblings, the MT-07.
While it delivers the same 73hp and 67Nm, the R7 will entice young and new riders around the globe.
Suzuki once held the title with the SV650. Affordable to own and maintain by the likes of every new and experienced rider on the planet.
However, rumours have it that the guys at Hamamatsu are planning to get in on the action to go head to head against the all-new R7.
According to reports, Suzuki plans to take the SV650 and put a full fairing around it and make it an affordable sport-focused machine.
While we are not sure how long it would take for Suzuki to introduce the new motorcycle but based on the company’s new effort to introduce a new range of 2022 models starting with the GSX-S1000, GSX-S950, upcoming GSX-R1000 and GSX-S1000T, we might catch a full-fairing SV650 soon.
