I've only had SV650 and SV1000 to compare in the sport bike world. I've ridden a lot of cruisers. The SV1k has a lot more guts then the 650. It's quicker then anything I'll ever need. It handles really well. It's all I'll ever really need in a sport tourer other then a passenger support.
The only complaints I hear is comfort. I fixed my problems by going to upright bars, not a problem on the N model. Outside of that, it should be a good reliable bike with gobs of torque.
