and the replacement for the SV locked down:

the Yamaha MT-10. Basicly a naked R1.

165HP, 75lbft of torque. 440lbs ready to ride, and a 55inch wheel base.
compared to the SV:
75 HP, 47lbft of torque, 425lbs ready to ride, 56.1 inch wheel base

it supposed to be in canadian dealers mid july for 15k, and i’m probably going to wait a year for them to sort out any teething issues.

now. what to do with the SV? track rat? 1000CC swap? we shall have to wait and see
