I have an '00. I've heard good things about the newer ('03+) models. Fuel injection, stiffer frame, etc. Nothing wrong with the old ones and may take a while for all the aftermarket bits to be made for the new ones (don't know for sure though). Older ones obviously cost less. Your choice.kwak zzr said:thanks im from the uk and i know everyone just lately seem to own a sv.would you recomend the new sv or the old one.
Sounds like you need to figure out how you won't to ride.kwak zzr said:in line fours are my favorite they make lots of power in the rev range and freely rev anywhere.sv's are different they are built for torque,pulling from low down in the revs.i have sold my zzr now and am looking for a new bike,i have looked at the sv650s,sv1000s,gsxr600 and the tl 1000s.im like a kid in a sweet shop! i dont know what to do ? so for know im saving money and dwelling on what to do.
