SV650X 117.64mph

RiDE (UK) - - Long Term Test -

I was a lit­tle ap­pre­hen­sive about this but the lack of other traf­fic or cross­winds made it pleas­ant. The SV650X pulled cleanly through the gears to peak power at 10,000rpm or so, as far as I could get it to go — an in­di­cated 126mph. No body­work, 75bhp and a fat geezer meant that I was the SV’S aero brick wall. But it was sur­pris­ingly sta­ble and nowhere near as ter­ri­fy­ing as I thought it would be. JB
