Suzuki France has announced 2019 SV650 Scrambler 2.0, the latest iteration of its efforts to provide a dual-sport trim of the Japanese middleweight V-twin for the French market.
This isn’t the first time Suzuki has done this. French dealers revelead the first scrambler version of the SV650 for 2017. The new SV650 Scrambler 2.0 once again saves time and effort for customers who have plans to customize the trellis-framed, naked motorcycle in that direction. The scrambler wears accessories by German motorcycle outfitter SW-MOTECH and Suzuki France will sell this adventure-ready, retro-modern version in showrooms.
The 2019 Suzuki SV650 Scrambler 2.0 wears aluminum components like the small front fender, radiator guards, and gauge protector. A grille covers the headlamp — while taller, wider handlebars with hand guards, and wider foot pegs with removable rubber inserts provide more maneuverability and versatility. The seat gets ribbed, tuck-and-roll upholstery, the motorcycle includes saddle bags, and it wears Dunlop Mutant dual-sport tires. It’s all very nifty, but the SV650 Scrambler 2.0 would have further benefited from a skid plate.
The Suzuki SV650 Scrambler 2.0 will be released in France this summer for €7,999, which is pretty affordable considering all the add-ons.
