don't know the weight of the SV engine but she's definitely a big lump of metal and an awkward shape to get a frame around.

i figure you'd also include the kawasaki versys in that case? lot closer to an adv bike already and would mostly need suspension upgrades. from memory the kwaka engine has about 10hp less but still got good midrange which is what counts in an adv bike.

either or, I will probably look for a wrecked bike so i will take whatever 650 I can find. I may just buy a motor if I can find a decent deal and use my ex 500 frame so I have a titled bike and just build a frame around the motor. I built a 500 based cafe/streetfighter and now I have the old frame sitting around. I considered just getting another 500 motor since they're so cheap and plentiful and doing something similar to the webber bikes. the extra power and FI would be nice though
