Improved in (Almost) Way

By Duke Walls(Owner), Sep. 16,

I’ve always loved my Suzuki Bandit — a powerful, comfy mount at home commuting, cruising, or out for a pleasure ride. Of course, the nature of the bike meant — five speed no fuel injection or water and always just a few years. the curve. For me, it was the perfect bike, but use just that little extra.

When the new 2007 1250S ABS came out, I had to try one. I wasn’t disappointed. one fixes just about problem the old one had, and there that many fixes

Six speeds, fuel injection, cooling, extra torque, ground clearance, and a suspension puts the last one out to pasture.

Is it Darned close, but there are a few little niggles. The first I got on, I found my 6’4 knees up the bodywork, a surprise since the one had no such issues. It turns out due to the new seat, you actually have to back into the …-stop on the

Voila, extra clearance. And that …-stop: it certainly lock you in more than on the old Fortunately, the new seat is more on long trips, so that’s of a problem than you might

And of course, the ABS brakes are a wonder, and add to peace-of-mind. Just bear in that the lever isn’t as as the old one (all that extra does make it a bit squishier), and forget that you can no longer the back end out with the rear (that saved me once on the old but I’ll have to find a new way to miraculous collision avoidances on one). Also, if you’re to the old one, the bend on the bar is just a odd, but if you slide back to the and lean forward, you’ll that it’s actually about where it should be for position.

How else does it compare to the old Back-to-back, you can feel the differences, but my was amazed at the similarities between the two Yes, it’s smoother, powerful, corners better, better, and has better long-distance but in most ways, if you loved the old you’ll fall head-over-heels for the new

One problem I must address: its 15,000-mile checkup, the timing SNAPPED during valve As my mechanic knows what doing (he was the crew chief for a that won a national championship a few back), I got a little curious, and did checking. It seems some of the cam on 2007 Suzukis weren’t all should be, and there have a rash of replacements, so be aware they need to be checked (if the had snapped while the bike was on the I might have been that motor as a paperweight, than as my ‘daily driver’).

Is it as pretty as the 2001? Well, things are personal preferences, but to my the angular new bodywork isn’t as beautiful, but the new line-beam headlamp is ahead of the old cat’s eye projector low Of course, the old high-beam could fires, and the new one’s a bit weak, so you your money and takes chances.

Oh, and you can have the ABS bike in any as long as it’s dark (aw, c’mon, guys, the new came in ORANGE!) The Suzuki also reduced the lamp in the taillight cluster from two to so I’d replace the OEM incandescent bulb with an LED unit and keep the original as a spare about all that will fit the new seat, due to all that liquid plumbing). Oh, and dump the OEM Dunlop as soon as is practicable — sticky for about the first miles, and then become the disappointing sacks of goo imaginable. My recommends Bridgestones, and I have to say they have a good mix of and wear in chaotic Los Angeles

In short, if you’re in the market for a standard/… bike that scare you senseless the first you try to crank open the throttle in a turn on Angeles Crest or Highway, this is the bike. Oh, did I it’s also inexpensive, to insure, and has a comfy pillion for you Significant Other? As the British Recommended at the price. Read Review
