if you're worried about that then stop taking your bike to the bike shop to get it inspected.8 grand for a bike with a Korean 650cc engine in it and you have to sign a waiver on emissions and DOT legality to buy it? Sorry, but I find that laughable. :coocoo
You could get the full fairing and cowl cover 2 years ago, why is this suddenly a big deal?:OSusuki has just relased a full faired version of the sv650 for Europe looks very nice. Wonder if North America will get it.
Actually for $8000 grand you get a nice chasis with a questionable motor, forks with crap internals that can be upgraded and ohlins on the rear and if I remember the real article release in motorcyclist (last month, still on the shelf with a yellow bike on cover) they are getting released with Micron exhaust already on them.For $8000.00 you also get the Hyosung suspension. You can upgrade everything on the bike, but then you have an $11000.00 nice handling bike with a Korean motor :banghead
