When Suzuki released the updated SV650 at EICMA last fall, they also had a Scrambler version on display. They’ve teased it around the show circuit since, but nothing has come of it — except maybe inspiration.
One artist has put his own interpretation of a traillie version the SV650 on the DeviantArt website. Seen above, it’s an interesting design that mixes classic ’70s thumper styling (see: Yamaha XT500) with the SV650 platform. Nothing will likely ever come of the drawing, but it’s a cool idea that a company like Suzuki could certainly use right now, as their competitors milk the retro craze for all it’s worth.
The artist (going by the handle obiboi) has plenty of other cool concept drawings on the site as well. He’s got a couple other cool SV650 drawings, and a scramblerized BMW G310 (maybe this is what the rumoured ADV version of that platform will look like?).
