Suzuki brings new colours to 2023 SV650, SV650X, and Hayabusa

New colours have been announced by Suzuki for three of their 2023 model year motorcycles: the SV650, SV650X, and the Hayabusa.

New colours have been announced by Suzuki for the 2023 Hayabusa, SV650, and SV650X. 

The SV650 has been around for over 20 years now, and it has been widely anticipated to be replaced for next year. We recently wrote about a potential SV650 replacement that had been spotted out testing on public roads with a camouflage livery. 

But, Suzuki has announced new colours for the 2023 SV650 and SV650X. Between the two motorcycles, there are four new colours, with one for the SV650X and three for the SV650. 

Specifically, for 2023, the SV650 will be available in grey and black (with grey frame and red wheels); dark blue (with bronze frame and wheels); and black (with bronze frame and wheels, above). 

On the side of the SV650X, the new colour available for the 2023 model year is a metallic silver option (above).

For the Suzuki Hayabusa, the new colour options for 2023 - arguably regrettably - do not include a replica of the Yoshimura SERT livery that was painted on the Hayabusa given to Sylvain Guintoli as a ‘thank you’ gift from Suzuki for the Frenchman’s work on the GSX-RR MotoGP bike; and in the Yoshimura SERT Endurance World Championship team which won Le Mans, the Bol d’Or and the World Championship in 2021, and has a shot at the same this year. 

They do, though, include a dark grey option with red accents (top of page); a “revised,” Suzuki says, white option with more notable blue accents than before (above); and an all-black option with chrome trim (below). 

Unsurprisingly, the Hayabusa - which technically remains the same as the updated version that was introduced last year - is the most expensive of the three bikes. The 2023 model will retail for £16.999. On the other end of the scale is the SV650, costing £6,999, while the SV650X will cost £7,399.
