The 2003 Suzuki SV 1000's chunky aluminum frame with conventional suspension and it works better than the TL 1000S ever did. The SV 1000's suspension’s not quite as good as pure sports bikes but it’s fine for most people. If you do lots of track days and fancy aftermarket shock and fork re-build will enable you to flick from peg to peg in an instant with no grief. Brakes on the Suzuki SV 1000 are strong but work best with fresh fluid.

The 2003 MY Suzuki SV1000S takes off where the big Bandit sort of left off, but the new direction is radically different. The SV1000S is what we could call a sport-all-rounder bike, built on a race-derived platform, and tweaked for everyday comfort. This new appearance in the liter class introduces all-out, sizzling hot semi-naked sportiveness, with an aggressive front cowl, dual headlights, a sharp chin and a massive trellis frame in display.

Make no mistake, the SV1000S is capable to put up a serious fight on the track, as well. With 116 hp and 102 Nm of torque, this 6-speed beast is a force to be reckoned with.
