GSXR has an inline 4 cylinder and about 100 HP
SV has a V-twin with about 65 HP

Ditto

As I've stated in other threads, with the same basic question...consider your...ablilty-riding style, and the fun factor. There are guys, and gals, that ride SV 650's..dang fast, in fact they kick the crap out of most 600's, and larger bikes, but they do get pulled on the striaghts. I ride a gixxer 600, and I would have No Problem owning a SV 650, they look good, even better with some after market parts. Also the 650, doesn't require high rev's to get it going, which contributes to the fun factor!! Course, then there is the looks of the bike to consider too

why does inline 4 put out more then the v-twin(v-twin is 4 cyclinder still right) is it possible to make the 650 put out more, i mean come on theres no replacement for displacement, everyone knows that....so could it just be the better parts that make the GSXR putt out more power?

hey arron,

Vtwin is a TWIN therefore making a 2 cylinder. Inline 4 is 4 cylinder. inlines 4 make more power cause they can rev so much faster. In my magazines i have they did SV650 modifications. the SV is best bike for the buck. the money you will save by buying that over a 600 can be used to modify that SV and in some categories beat most of the 600's that come off the floor today.

V-twin is two cylinders and therefore can't put out the equivalent hp. As a reference, a liquid cooled 750cc twin should be able to put out close to the same hp numbers as a 600cc four cylinder(all else being equal). A 1000cc v-twin puts out about the same hp as a 750cc four cylinder(all else being equal).

SV is only 2 cyclinders (V-Twin). There are plenty of mods for the SV, Exhaust, Jet kit's, etc....

Which is why Ducati can run the 996 in World Superbikes against ZX7RR's and GSXR 750's. incorrect info has been edited out (see attached image below, it's a schematic of an SV motor).

www.svrider.com is the best site you can view for info on the bike. I bought mine before I found the site, but all the mods I've done were found through the help of the site.

I've ridden a few bikes, and from my biased opinion, SV's are one of the best bikes available. They are fun to ride, and only demanding of the rider when the rider wants it. You can cruise, or you can rail on one. The bike likes it no matter what. If you want more info, you're welcome to pm me.
