Well I've been saving up to trick out the old SV, but just got the greenlight to start looking for another bike. My wife wants the 01' SV650S that I currently ride. I am absolutlely happy w/ the SV, and am going to get another one. My question is has anyone riden or currently ride a new 03' Sv650S? Or should I just go w/ a 01' or 02' (probably 02')? Is the frame that much stiffer? Is there a noticable power difference? It won't stay stock for long, but just curious what kind of a platform it is to start with. If you already read this on the HSN site sorry, just trying to get as many inputs as possible.
