Default Anyone know of a resource ...

... that features the colour schemes Suzuki offered on each year's model of SV?

I'm looking at an AL7 at a dealer, but I've never seen the colour scheme elsewhere, nor an AL7 with white wheels ...

I think that was a "GP" special paint scheme and not available at all dealers. I saw one advertised on ebay about 18 months ago. The bike pictured has the "tuck and roll" seat which is allegedly more comfortable than stock seat (but isn't really).

Aha, thanks for that. It's interesting not only for the colour scheme but also 'cos it's got all the accessories: crash bungs, hand guards, factory larger flyscreen, rack & top box etc.

The rack isn't a Suzuki accessory its a Givi, the colour scheme isn't an official Suzuki one.
What you are looking at here would appear to be a "dealer special" i.e. a bike which was altered as a marketing exercise.
The tank is the original blue colour with the chrome S badge removed.
Side panels and tail have been sprayed to match and all the (naff) yellow graphics are aftermarket.
Wheels have been sprayed, white wheels are the spawn of satan, worse to clean than wire ones and that's saying something.
There's plenty used AL7s available and good deals on new AL8s too, so I would suggest giving this one a very wide berth.
Its also a bit on the pricy side, there's similar on ebay for almost a grand less (might need some polishing) or a brand new one for five and a half.

@Talking Heads - thanks, I did some digging and the paint job was a limited edition done by Dream Machine apparently. I know what you mean about white wheels too

Yep, Dream Machine paint. It's based on Suzuki's 2018 Moto GP colours. Works on a race bike, not so good on a naked.
