I had an FZ1 and I can say it was an amazing bike...

If the FZ6 is half the bike the FZ1 is, which I know it rates better than that, it should be a great bike.

Not only that, but Yamaha makes great bikes period. It should be a good one.

The SV has been out a while longer so it has a more established reputation(racing, touring, commuting, etc). But the FZ6 seems to be developing into a great street bike. There are some fundimental engine differences that might make a difference to you. Do you like to really wind up a motor and use the revs? Than the 4 cyl motor in the FZ6 is more to your liking. Do you like to be able to troll around at nice slow engine speeds using torque? Than the SV650 is more your speed. They both have naked, and fared versions. It's all a matter of preference. It's really hard not to buy a good bike these days.
