User Rating: Excellent


Handling And Control:

and Craftsmanship:

Pros: Handsome with a smooth, 1200 CC that’s under the radar of companies.

Cons: Need to the carbs to get rid of idle/low speed

The Bottom Line: If you are an experienced especially if you are returning to riding, you find as much bike as get with this Bandit.

In May I sold my 2001 Suzuki … bike and bought a Bandit 1200S. I liked the SV for riding and commutes, but its light on larger highways above 65 mph was not fun. I was looking for something was more solid (heavier) was not going to stretch me out in a severe stance. (I’m 5’11 a 32 inseam and 33/34 arm reach.) I wanted to return to my riding in the 1970s and 80s.

I owned a 73 R60/5 BMW, but the msrp and maintenance cost of new took this immediately out of the I then remembered the in-line 4 Honds and Yamahas that I some years back and around for what was available in the range. I rode a Yamaha FZ6 and like it at all.

I then a 2005 Kawasaki Z750S, and it was OK, but really excite me.

Then I out a 2005 Bandit 1200S and Wow! It was smooth, solid, quick, with a small fairing, and was around 500 lbs. ride on the same highways the SV felt thrown around at 55 mph was solid at 75 mph. And the OTD price was cheaper than the Kawasaki.

the money received from the SV, it was only going to cost me

I did have to have the carbs for a smoother idle. The dual brakes are strong, with a disc in the rear that, used together (I usually use the front brakes) will the bike quickly. The paint job is (conservative, but very eye-catching).

The mirrors offer the most I’ve ever had on a bike, and fold back, if needed. The even have a gas guage and a And guess what.

It has a center (although the 1200S does not as easily as some).

Any drawbacks? The is air/oil-cooled, with a small oil where you might normally a water radiator on a bike. it hit 95 degrees this past the bike sent up lots of to my legs unless I kept it

On country roads or the highway in the heat, I felt comfortable. I not ridden the bike in January yet in SE PA, so the warm engine may be a blessing

The seat is relatively low and an Alaska sheepskin pad has made it more A Laminar Lip has decreased the air flow my chest and arms, especially at speeds. Guys who I used to with in the 1970s and 80s have Not THATS a motorcycle! when have seen the Bandit.

The has truly captured the look of the Japanese Motorcycle that of us rode.

The insurance? Only more than the SV650. It is not as a sport bike or sport-tourer, it is both.

I also added a Locker Elite Tail Bag blue trim that as though it came stock the bike.

The reach to the handlebars is fine for me. I to lean forward into the and country corners. Some added bar raisers.

There are a number of add-ons for this that has been in production An excellent web site is www.maximum-suzuki.com.

Due to the engine and weight, I wouldn’t the Bandit 1200S to first or very inexperienced riders. bike could get away you fast. It pulls smoothly its 5 gears to as fast as you want to it. It redlines at 11,000 rpms a top speed on the speedometer of 170.(This is the that most stunt use, especially for wheelies.)

If you are for a very reasonable priced, attractive bike that can as a commuter, sport bike or range sport touring that will turn the of folks on 2 and 4 wheels as you pass by, take a look at the Bandit

Update — July 06:

now had the 1200S for a little over a I’ve ridden it hard and on brisk fall days, winter afternoons, and steamy nights, and the bike has been I’ve been getting 38 and 40 mpg. (As I write this, gas is Suzuki decided not to bring the to the US for 06, so my handsome 05 draws even attention now. Europe and have a new, slightly shaped bikini fairing on 06 and maybe an ABS option.

I suspect the US be seeing the 1200S in 07. If you can find a 1200S, it’s an amazing, fun that should last you a time. Once again, I that this is a closet machine that requires you have a lick of good and some solid bike before you crank open the
