I've never ridden either but have plenty of buddies who own them.
Since you have some riding experience already, I'd just go with the SV1000. Easier to ride for the street since you have a better powerband. If you were a noob I'd recommend the 650, but you're not.
Agreed on post #4 too. having a 4-cyclinder sportscar doesnt' mean I wouldn't want a V8 Ferrari...
SV1000 is a better bike, but it's cool to hate it... Never understood why.
You get 45 more hp, endless torque, stronger swing arm and forks along with cartridge forks and a better rear shock. 40lbs extra weight for all that. Most SV650 riders complain the 1000 feels "heavy", what they are complaining about is the steering damper, that goes to show how much they know.
The SV1000 being a misunderstood bike, and the SV650 being almost a cult bike, means that you can get a SV1K for the same money as a SV650.
FYI, SV1000S weights the same and has the same power as a Ducati 998.
