It will be a hell of a step up.

I'd have to say I believe my speed four is a better bike than the sv650 in pure ability terms although the twin engine has a touch more character. Having the extra 75cc's on me and 25 on the SV will make more difference than you can believe. Just don't expect to be as fast on the new one as you were on the old till you get used to it. You might miss the fairing though!

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

You don't have to be stupid to be wrong, and you don't have to be wrong to be stupid.
