After a several year hiatus, and briefly being replaced by the SFV 650, Suzuki's highly popular mid-size V-Twin, the SV650 is back--and much improved. Due out in June as a 2017 model, Suzuki will offer the restyled naked SV650 in two versions a base model and the SV650 ABS model with MSRPs of $6,999 and $7,499.

The SV650 was originally introduced in 1999 and went through several iterations both domestically and internationally. In 2009 the SV650 was dropped and in its place came the SFV650 Gladius for the US market up until 2015. With its great performance characteristics the SV650 became a favorite amongst new riders and helped re-ignite the interests of mid-displacement racing enthusiasts. Besides being recognized for its rideabilty, the SV650 was equally praised for is affordability.

Now with the introduction of the third generation SV605, Suzuki is looking to once again light a fuse in the mid-weight/mid-displacement V-twin sport bike segment delivering everything people loved about the SV650: spirited power, smooth handing and a wallet-friendly price point.

Still a stripped down street fighter, the most noticeable feature is the lightweight, high-strength steel trellis frame that hugs the top half of the Liquid cooled, 645cc, 4-stroke, DOHC, V-twin engine.

Here is the press release from Suzuki:
