The 2023 Suzuki SV650 Is A Dependable Midsize Naked Bike

The SV650 has been around since 1999 – in that time, the fan-favourite naked bike has undergone a couple of overhauls ( most recently in 2017), but the easy-to-love V-twin powered naked bike continues to be a reliable option. Suzuki hasn’t made any new changes for 2023, aside from paint, but the bike still holds up within the 2023 Suzuki lineup.

The 2023 Suzuki SV650 is powered by a 645cc 90-degree v-twin, churning out a very respectable 75 hp and 47 lb-ft of torque, making it a great choice for new riders and experienced ones alike. The Japanese-made SV650 comes loaded with some modern tech, such as a full LCD gauge treatment and an advanced fuel injection system, which aids riders by automatically adjusting engine speed when riding at slower speeds to make the bike easier to control.

The 2023 edition of the SV650 is available for purchase in a couple of different packages – the base model or an upgraded ABS model, which equips the bike with an antilock braking system. The ABS model is standard in the Canadian market, where an additional trim package is available – the SV650XA. The XA package transforms the bike into a retro cafe racer, with a headlight cowl, clip-on style handlebars, a unique “tuck and roll” seat, and some retro Suzuki graphics.

For 2023 the SV650 is available in a variety of colourways – the base model comes in a two-tone Glass Sparkle Black / Solid Iron Gray. The ABS model is adorned in Metallic Reflective Blue, with dark gold metallic accents on the frame and wheels. Meanwhile, the Canadian standard model is up for grabs in either two-tone Glass Sparkle Black & Solid Iron Gray or simply Glass Sparkle Black with the dark gold accents. Finally, the cafe racer-styled XA model is exclusively for sale in Metallic Mat Sword Silver.

The 2023 Suzuki SV650 starts at $7,399 USD/ $8,999 CAD

2023 Suzuki SV650 Features


Suzuki Protection Plan is a comprehensive plan that covers all mechanical, electrical and computer systems on your Suzuki Motorcycle or ATV. Ask your local Authorized Dealer about Suzuki Protection Plan for extra peace of mind.


Flexibility is only available from a motorcycle of reliable performance, designed through the application of modern technology – this is the freedom not to constrain the riders’ style. This machine with brisk performance in a neat package and the full range of options, gives many various images for your rider lifestyle. Welcome to the world of new riding styles!


The styling was conceived to express slim, lightweight design and to showcase the strength of V-twin engine. The clean, neatly shaped body lines are aimed to be appealing to a wide range of riders. The compact, lightweight chassis is covered with slim bodywork to create a bike that’s agile and fun to ride on a variety of streets – such as city traffic, highway, rural roads, and winding roads. The ready-to-ride weight of the 2020 SV650 ABS is a low 437 pounds.


The slim fuel tank and seat joint aid the rider in touching the ground better at stops. Attention to rider comfort and confidence includes a carefully shaped seat with a high-grip cover and integrated cargo retention loops that can pull out from under the seat. The high-strength steel, trellis-style frame is key to the motorcycle’s trim and intelligent dimensions. The seat height is just 785mm (30.9 inches) and is the lowest in the 600-800cc street bike class.


The compact and lightweight instrument panel is a full LCD display, eliminating motor and needle mechanics. The instrument panel has several features, including a tachometer, speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, ABS alert, and gear position, plus fuel consumption and driving range data.


Class exclusive*, 645cc, DOHC, V-twin engine produces strong, torque-rich horsepower while conforming the latest emission requirements. The engine’s 90-degree L-twin configuration has perfect primary balance, so a heavy, power-robbing counter balancer is not needed.


The energy-efficient engine has unique pistons that were engineered with the use of Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis to achieve optimal rigidity and weight. Each piston skirt has a special resin coating, and the other sliding parts are tinned for less friction and greater durability – a first for a Suzuki motorcycle. Suzuki’s innovative L-shaped piston rings contribute to reduced blow-by gas, resulting in fewer emissions and greater combustion efficiency.


Ten-hole, long-nose-type fuel injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion efficiency and while reducing fuel consumption.


The 41mm conventional-style front fork has a generous 125mm (4.9 inches) of wheel travel to provide a sporty but plush ride.


Link-type rear shock unit has a 63mm (2.48-inch) stroke and is tuned for a superb progressive feel and to react efficiently to varied road conditions while still delivering an agile and stable feel. The rear shock’s spring pre-load is seven-way adjustable so you can easily adjust for a passenger or cargo.


The front brakes feature a pair of fully floating 290mm discs that are grasped by four-piston Tokico calipers for excellent braking performance. The compact Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)* ensures braking power matches available traction.
