with you guys on the older style bikes, when the engine and exhaust had form and added to the character of the machine. Now it seems everything is just cramped into a box under the seat, can't even tell where the heads or barrels are anymore. Exhaust has become another fugly box thing.
way too old now for 200 Hp. (even 140hp). Guess I will be keeping the old monster

wish they had left it as this.

More than a passing resemblance to the good old days..
The SV-650 is a classic. No if's or but's.
