Suzuki SV650 (1999 - 2016)

The Suzuki SV650 models 1999 – 2016 have recently been replaced by the SV650 (2016 onwards). However, being around for so long, there’s very little not to like about this age group of bulletproof SV650s.

Suzuki has been producing the SV650 from what seems like the beginning of time, but the bike has always offered a great all round experience, which is ideal for A2 riders.

Although you need to restrict the SV650 by 34% for your A2 license, this is actually a benefit. As soon as you replace your A2 license with the full motorbike license, you will be unlocking an additional 34% of power; removing the need to get a bigger bike.

The Suzuki SV650 is a middle-weight, fun-to-ride and practical motorcycle. Whether you have an A2 license or are an experienced rider, the SV650 is a highly recommended motorcycle to own.

You will need a restrictor to ride the Suzuki SV650 on an A2 license. See the Suzuki SV650 specifications table for restriction info, and the restrictor kits section to see what restrictors are available for the Suzuki SV650.
