The SV650 has been around since 1999, and despite a major upgrade in 2003 that introduced EFI, it has always had an aluminum frame. That changes for 2016, with an entirely new SV based on the Gladius, with a steel frame. The engine includes 60 new parts and now produces 75 hp. The bike's midsection has been narrowed significantly and the bike has lost 7.7 kilos. Suzuki lists the bike as a 2017 model so it's expected sometime later in 2016.
