From a pure performance standpoint, an inline four is better than a twin of equal size. On the street it's another story—riding a twin is like riding a quarter of a Corvette rather than a giant sewing machine. Suzuki's SV650 is an accessible version of a Ducati Monster, and with a little fettling makes a fantastically entertaining—if not wildly fast—trackday plaything.
