It is almost impossible to stall Suzuki’s SV650, and that alone is reason to put it on the list. Couple that asset with cool café-racer styling, a crash-worthy naked chassis and a forgiving yet potent sport bike platform for a bike that will keep you excited for years to come. We’ve listed the more expensive 650X here because cool factor matters, but it’s worth noting you can get the equally-fun base model for $7,099.
