After owning two gen 1 SVs, an S and a naked as well as a Wee, you could say I'm a big fan of the 650 V engine, perhaps the ideal (affordable) street engine.
I now have a CBF1000...but prior to that I had an 08 Wee.
That v650 was a sweet,sweet engine for sure...as was the rest of the bike...once I delt with the buffeting!
