Suzuki could be working on an 'RR' version of the SV650 to rival the Yamaha R7.
What it could look like:

The R7 seems to be putting other companies on notice. It would be cool to see Suzuki come up with something like this.

I suppose better late than never. Been hoping Suzuki would do something like this since about 2010. They ran out of time. I got an R7 now. Hehe

I think Suzuki isn't ready for a faired SV. Besides they are working on a new parallel twin to replace the actual (very good) V-Twin. So I think they are far from a new bike. My modest opinion.

A V-twin can have a better power to weight ratio than a parallel twin. The engine can be vibration-free without adding counter-rotating crankshaft balancers and associated gears which is desirable if it's to be used as a stressed member for increased frame rigidity. The KTM Super Duke R weighs about 460 lbs wet (440 for the new RR) and puts out over 165 WHP with gobs of TQ everywhere. After riding one, every other twin feels weak. The SDR scaled down to 700 cc, could easily put out 90 WHP stock and comply with the latest emission laws. Of course, you'll pay for what you get.
