SV1000S 2006 (K6) USA (E03)
2003 saw the launch of the replacement for the fast but flawed TL1000. The Liquid-cooled 996cc 90° V-Twin, DOHC, 8 valve engine was de-tuned and re-tuned for exceptional low to mid range throttle response, a problem with the earlier TL1000. The handling was also improved with a more relaxed trail angle, the original TL being a little bit to sharp in the hands of any but the most experienced riders! The machine retained the lightness of the original weighing in at just 185kg, remarkable for a 1 litre V-twin.
The model came as the naked SV or the SV1000S with a top faring. The 116hp engine gives impressive performance, especially with 102nm of torque at just 7000rpm!
