Well actually I do know the difference. You made a comment that the two are completely different bikes for different purposes. and this is what I did ask about. A different character of engine or different service intervals do not constitute enough difference to make such a claim.
I said different taste. Not purpose.
There's a difference.
Different character and service intervals make a difference when one is a PIA and the other isn't. Maybe for people that don't do their own work it's not an issue. I've ridden the SV's and they are BY FAR a lot more busy than the Z. That may not be a big deal to you but to me it is. I don't want to feel like a pack of bees stung my hands after every ride.
