Suzuki motorcycles has announced the price of its latest modern café racer, the Suzuki SV650X for the UK market. The motorcycle comes at a launch price of GBP 5,999.
This makes the Suzuki SV650X GBP 300 more expensive than the SV650.

Powering the Suzuki SV650X is a 645cc V-twin DOHC mill with liquid cooling and fuel injection. The powerplant makes 76 PS of power at 8,500 rpm, and 64 Nm of torque at 8,100 rpm. The engine pairs with a 6-speed transmission. The engine comes with technologies like Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.
For suspension, the SV650X employs preload adjustable telescopic front fork, and link-type rear monoshock that is preload adjustable as well. Brakes include 290 mm twin front discs, and a 240 mm rear disc, both with ABS. In the UK market, Suzuki offers a range of styling, protection, and luggage accessories for the motorcycle as well.
The Suzuki SV650X rivals Ducati Scrambler Café racer, and Triumph Street Cup in the café racer segment. The Street Cup costs GBP 8,800 On The Road (OTR); while the Scrambler Café Racer has a Suggested Retail Price of GBP 9,650.
