The Best-Kept Secret in Motorcycles.
By Tristan Duff(Owner), Sep. 23, 2008
The Suzuki Bandit 1250S is, quite possibly, one of the best "do everything" motorcycles on the planet. The torque band is everywhere; downshifting from sixth anywhere past 40-45 mph is pointless, as the 1254cc fuel-injected motor simply shoots forward (without a hint of jerking or surge, I...

One of a kind
By Gary Harr(Owner), Sep. 20, 2008
What else can you buy for the price. Plenty of power, smooth as can be and 50 plus mpg. This bike should be at the top of anyones list who wants to really ride the bike. Commuting is excellent. Twisties are good but not the level of a full Sport bike. 300 mile andventues are where this bike rea... Read Full Review

Rides ecceding 500 miles were no problem on this bike, even two up.



The engine has low down grunt and puts ove... Read Full Review

My second bandit
By Christopher(Owner), Aug. 29, 2010
I bought a 2002 Bandit 1200S new. I had it for 6 years and 25,050 miles. I agree with other riders and always said I needed 6 gears and EFI. Also, it needed water cooling for the engine. Well in 2008, I totaled it out and 6 months later, bought an '08. It rides like a dream. I have 9 grand on it ... Read Full Review
