Suzuki launches SV1000 Classic

Making its encore following 2 years away from the UK market, Suzuki GB has unveiled a special edition, limited-edition SV1000, featuring a "café-racer" inspired specification, named the SV1000 Classic.

A popular model in the Suzuki range for years, the SV1000 features the proven 996cc V-Twin engine with a traditional upright riding position, but is boosted on the Classic with the addition of special handlebars and a single seat cowl.

Suzuki GB general manager Steve Callahan said: "The SV1000 has been a very popular model, but with the impending Euro-three legislation, we wanted to bring this bike back to the UK market for a proper send-off. With a recommended retail price of just £5650 on the road, and less than 150 models available, this really is a unique value-busting special edition Suzuki".
