I see that Suzuki are offering a temporary £500 discount on a number of their bikes if you place an order before the end of June. This includes the sv650 which takes the price down to £5,499. Fantastic price in my view and some dealers are now offering these bikes for even less!

I'm not surprised Suzuki are adding incentives.

The range is pretty uninspiring at the moment and the models on offer are dated.

Suzuki are definitely chasing sales. Their previous offer of £500 off a new bike has been withdrawn.................. however if you take a test ride and then order a new bike guess what......... a £500 saving off the RRP!

Some cracking deals in my opinion of you are after a new bike.

An SV650 is now £5,499 and a GSX-S750 is £7500.

Suzuki always give good discounts in September I have noticed in previous years, the range is pretty poor at the moment, especially in the naked bikes sector.

Not as good as KTM.

There is absolutely nothing appealing in the whole range though, I couldn't think of a single new Suzuki I would like to own, whereas most other manufacturers have one or two interesting bikes in their ranges.

SV650 is a cracking bike regardless of the budget price.

V Stroms are a very good do it all option.

The GSXR 1000 is going to cause you no problems for years and be as fast as anything else you can buy for the money.

For £5500 I'd rather have a 5 year old Street Triple than a new SV650.

Takes all sorts I suppose. I sold a nearly new street RS for a Sv and have never been happier to shift a bike on.

Can I ask why? I haven't ridden either but looking to move on to a Street Triple from my FZS600, SV650 come across as commuter bikes from what I've heard.

Suzuki's USP in the UK has for years been that whilst their bikes aren't quite as loaded with bells and whistles as the opposition, they are usually a bucket loads cheaper and still do everything you need. They seem to have permanent 0% offers on as well.

So that makes me a beardy weirdo chav then, I am however, not a girl. The VStrom is 90% of a GS imo, for about 50% of the price and as TWoo says the GSXR1000R is as good as anything else and a little cheaper, even if ridden by 60 year old chavs, mine has no anodised tat though hehe

Interesting to compare current prices with what they cost years ago. I reckon new suzuki's represent decent value these days assuming you don't need all the bells and whistles that some other manufacturers offer.

I paid £3995 (OTR) or a new unregistered Honda Hornet in 1999. Accordingly to the bank of England inflation calculator that is £6975 in today's money and the current CB650R is £7200 so not to far away. I'm sure the current CB is the better bike but interesting how close they are in price.

I paid £3745 (OTR) for a new unregistered SV650 in 2003. The inflation adjusted price is £5965 so I do think £5,499 is a decent price and you are likely to get a little more off with determined haggling. Again the current SV650 is a probably a better bike than my K3 model.

And often seen ridden by people who can really ride and without any anodised stuff on them - and I am not a GSXR 1000 owner. Cease with the moronic generalised comments please.

True, I paid £8k for a new GSX-R1000 in 2006. In today's money that's around £12k, that will buy a new base GSX-R1000 now. I also paid just over £11k for a new S1000RR in 2013, that's around £13k in today's money. I don't think £13k will buy a new S1000RR now.
