Handling And Control:

and Craftsmanship:

Pros: Inexpensive excellent useable power for the rider

Cons: Old school will need replacement early

The Bottom Line: I justify replacing my Bandit anything else, and I’ve I definitely recommend it for the seasoned

The 2005 iteration of Suzuki’s was the last year in the US for this Like all it’s predecessors, it was with what has to be one of the best ever put into a day to day street The air/oil cooled engine was from the 80’s era GSXR bikes, made larger for torque and detuned for more

Put simply, it just flat-out Pushing about 100 HP and 78 pounds of riding the big bandit is almost riding an automatic. The power is whenever you want it.

In 3rd gear you should be in 2nd? It doesn’t twist your wrist and the becomes a blur.

In the real of riding, which is from 30 to 80 I haven’t found anything does the job better. There are that can match it in this and a very, very few that beat it, however, those will cost you two to three as much. The Bandit is not for the novice, or Iwannagofast squid.

You should have a lot of experience your belt before into the realms of what thing can do, and you need to understand the power of this bike can get you trouble VERY quickly.

the one problem area that is immediately apparent is the seat. It for about 100 to 120 miles, and then done. An off bike break help much, as soon as you get on you’ll feel the pressure that made you get off in the first This is a malady with modern day bikes and is the reason is such a large aftermarket for of all makes.

In my case I replaced the seat with the Corbin and Lady saddle, and the transformation was remarkable. 300 mile rides are for me and this saddle is good for longer distances. Plus, I stop for gas (at about 175 miles, the holds 5 gallons) and get back on, are no pressure point problems and good to go as I was when I started

For my height, 6’0, the windscreen on the 1/2 does a nice job of keeping the blast off of chest and the windflow about neck high. does increase road and noise so earplugs are a necessity, as are on almost every bike out so that’s not really a negative. In during the love-bug seasons, I the little fairing ever I venture out.

Also, I’ve found the standard handle bars are fine and the length to the pegs fit me well. I prefer the Bandit’s of putting the pegs under me of further back, it allows me to sit up and to stand over rough of road or railroad crossings. handlebars instead of clip ons makes changing bars and cheap if I ever decide to do so.

The for the Bandit is enormous and personalizing machine is limited only by the of your wallet.

Speaking of the suspension is where the Bandit let you down. I bought my bike new and two years and 17,000 miles, the springs and shock are pretty used up. In high speed the suspension will wallow and hog out something it did not do in the first 5,000 I’m in the process of refitting the and fork springs with heavy duty items Progressive.

A report will follow.

To sum up, the 1200 has to be one of the best do everything, all street bikes I’ve owned or ridden. Want to someone on a nice, long to a special place? No sweat. to try your hand at an Iron Qualifier? Change the saddle and almost too easy.

Want to the kid in the souped up street car that not even close to your in blistering out of the hole acceleration? Go (provided you KNOW what doing!) The Bandit is a new model for but a used 1200, if you can find just might be exactly you’re looking for if you want an easy to maintain, reliable do bike that can still the snot out of you every time you the throttle.
