This Suzuki SV650 Is A Glorious Tribute To The Great Barry Sheene
To promote the updated Suzuki SV650, Suzuki of France launched a competition for its dealership network some time back. In this competition, dealerships had to imagine custom motorcycles that were based on the new SV650, that could be anything from a scrambler to a cafe racer. This one particular custom build created by a certain dealership going by the name of Espace Moto 95 has been the highlight of the contest. This Suzuki SV650 cafe racer build pays tribute to the legendary British rider Barry Sheene who won the world championship in 1976 and 1977 aboard the Suzuki RG500 two-stroke machine.
