sv650 v bandit 600
« on: October 14, 2015, 02:20:32 PM »
which one would you go for, think ive talked myself out of the 500 twin market (at the moment) and these two are very appealing, though not the sv650s which looks too hunched over for me and i prefer the upright position more!

Definitely the SV- had a road and race version- great fun. If you want a 500 I've picked up a lovely 96 n cb500 with only 17k miles. I'll put a new MOT on it- it's 850. See pic below

I have a bar riser on my Monster and changed the position totally and much more comfortable on long days not.
But sit on the SV because I didn't find it hunched.

And the main thing the engine, I love a VTwin so would always be biased on that

are risers easy to fit? would they return the bars to the same position as teh the non s version?
which is the most comfortable to sit on? have been offered a mint sv650s in blue, 13k on clock, bit of paint peeling on front forks, but everything else spotlesss, on a V plate for 1100?
