  • Sv1000r???

    Not trying to start rumours or anything but I've heard that the TLR is getting discontinued and I was wondering if anybody has heard about an SV1000R as a replacement?

    I think it would be a pretty sweet bike if they made it...

    I doubt they will but if Honda brings out the new Chickenhawk that I've been hearing about Suzuki might respond. I'd advise against holding your breathe however.
    2003 Blue and White TL1000R (The faster colors) Yoshimura Ti Cans, TRE, Custom Homemade Fender Eliminator, Hammerit Carbon Look Intake Covers, PC II, Fan Switch Mod. Yellow Box, Nissin Brake Caliper and Goodridge SS Brake Lines.

    They say that only the good die young, so I plan on living forevever.

        I actually think the new VTR1000F is in response to the SV1000S. I wouldn't plan on any new serious development on a new V-Twin project.

        If anything, I'd look for a GSV-R -- the V-Four as seen in MotoGP.

            ANother quote I found on the net.

            Naked V-Twin Hooligan machines! I thought this would be the year of the V-Twin machine. With monstrous torque, potentially light weight, razor sharp handling, comfortable riding positions for an aging demographic, and styling that would allow entrance into any motorcycling subset, V-Twins should be the next big thing. Ducati delivered, and Suzuki delivered their motors to Cagiva, Aprillia gave us an ST. What is the holdup with the rest of the manufacturers? Honda has the engine from the RC51, Suzuki could easily build an SV1000R, Kawasaki, Yamaha, and Aprillia need to pony up.

              "comfortable riding positions for an aging demographic'

              Somehow that gets forgotten all the time!

              Anyone Remember the '85 VF1000R.. Adjustable handlebars! Clip-ons you could change the Height and angle of.. in NINETEEN EIGHTY-FIVE.. I'm glad we've come so far...

                The SV1000S seems to be the best track bike of the nekkids, but they seem to have gone a bit extreme on the ergonomics for the typical v-twin customer.

                I'd just be happy with some decent aftermarket support for the damn thing.

                      That's only because you haven't seen a black and yellow one


                      I'd be all over an SV-R
                      Then I could put the TL in my living room and stare at it all day long

                          TL isn´t a V90 either...
                          It´s 72.5 is´n´t it??



                          And, no the Mille doesn´t thump as hard/nice at the TL, it´s sharper. But quite nice anyway.

                            TL=90 degree V-twin....
