We have seen this model overseas and had been hoping to get it in the United States, and now the 2019 Suzuki SV650X has arrived. The SV650X takes that standard SV650 and gives it a café racer twist. Let’s take a quick look at what makes the 2019 Suzuki SV650X distinct in Suzuki’s lineup.
- The frame, suspension, and motor on the 2019 Suzuki SV650X are all unchanged from the standard SV650.
- The defining feature for the 2019 Suzuki SV650X is the clip-ons. Rather than a traditional steel handlebar, the SV650X has a pair of clip-ons that put the rider in a forward-leaning position. For those who are concerned about the SV650X having too-aggressive ergonomics, the clip-ons do not drop below the top triple clamp.
- Although the SV650X’s mirrors look different, they are the same as on the SV650. However, the angle of the mirrors further compacts the appearance of the 2019 Suzuki SV650X.
