Dedicated to the women who RIDE THEIR OWN motorcycles
submitted by Debra W.
I am 5'7" tall and have been riding since 1997. I
currently ride a 2001 Suzuki SV650. The bike is light weight at about
430 lbs wet. The liquid cooled, v-twin engine is smooth running & makes
approximately 70 hp to the rear wheel. It's mild mannered unless you ask
it to get up and go, which it can and will do. The bike is very
versatile. It's comfortable enough for touring, and sporty enough to
handle the twisties with ease. The bike comes in 2 versions. The SV650
and the SV650S which is more sporty and has a half fairing. Drawbacks?
The seat height may be too tall at 31.5" and it doesn't have the latest
adjustable suspension. You can address this with the aftermarket. For me
this hasn't been an issue. At first sight, you may perceive this bike as
a "crotch rocket", but it is not. It has a standard style riding
position that is very comfortable. This is a fun bike for anyone, even
beginners. And the price is suitable for anyone's budget. Even my
Husband likes to take this bike through the twisties!
P.S. ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE GEAR and RIDE SAFE!
Thanks to Debra for submitting this personal review. From Debra, "I
currently ride a 2001 Suzuki SV650 and a 2004 Suzuki Eiger 400 Quad. My
1st bike was a Suzuki Savage 650, my 2nd was a Yamaha V-Star 650, my 3rd
was a Kawasaki ZRX11 (I liked the color)."
