This is my 06 sv650. Bought it new as my first bike.
I always thought it was a good bike. I turned it into a race bike, so I had to buy a street bike to get to school.
First bought a zx6, sold it again within a month. Then bought a fz1, good bike, but didnt like the I4. Now I have a KLR 650 and will probably be gone in a year.
I will never sell the sv. After riding other bikes I love the sv even more. Just turned the sv back into a street bike. :)
