Purchased in September of 2003, this bike had 4 miles on the odometer. Having a bit of experience buying vehicles now, and armed with the dealer price sheet from SocalSVRiders.org, I negotiated a pretty decent deal. I might have done better, but I’m content.
After my crash in June 03, I was considering a GSX-R 750 for its suspension (and cause it gets the chicks), but I couldn’t get full coverage insurance on a sportbike with a crash on my record. Luckilly, the SVS is considered a standard, so I had the option of an SV1000S or an SV650S. I went with the 02 650, because I’m not a fan of the 03 styling… Its growing on me a bit, though.
