The 645cc liquid-cooled of Suzuki Gladius, carbureted 90-degree V-Twin has no body took almost no time to achieve cult status with its sporty handling and user-friendly low-end and midrange grunt. Non-faired design caused the eye to focus immediately on the ground only hanging aluminum frame, oval tube trellis style. There are many manufacturers of bicycles in those days embraced the naked streetfighter style for the American market.

However, the ease of the SV-to-use made it a hit with Joe Average rider for commuting and weekend play, while its overall performance caused a surge in club racing throughout the country, all for the MSRP of 1999 of $ 5,699. The bike was really all that and a bag of chips.

The first major update to the SV – and partly Suzuki Gladius SV650S faired model introduced in 2000 – arrived in ’03 and included fuel injection, a new framework sturdy square tube frame and the marginal increase in horsepower and torque. In 2007, ABS became optional in either model, and in 2008 was the S-model full fairing as the Suzuki Gladius SV650SF. For 2009 the Suzuki performance features that are perceived between the SV and SF models are too close, so a totally new model was created to adapt to changing market demands.
