2010 Suzuki GSX1250FA and Bandit First Look

The new fully-faired GSX1250FA gives Suzuki a large-displacement sport-tourer.

Suzuki chose the prestigious Bol D’or 24 hour endurance race, in Magny-Cours, France, to unveil two new models – the 2010 Suzuki GSX1250FA and the 2010 Suzuki Bandit 1250.

2010 Suzuki GSX1250FA

The new Suzuki GSX1250FA is a fully-faired motorcycle based off Suzuki’s Bandit powerplant. The fuel-injected Inline-Four reaches a 1255cc displacement via 79mm bore x 64mm stroke, with 10.5:1 compression ratio. Liquid-cooled the GSX1250FA motor is tuned for peak torque in low rpms, divvying out its juice through a six-speed constant mesh transmission and final chain drive.

The full fairing indicates touring intentions, as Suzuki noticeably lacks a sport-touring design to match up with the likes of Yamaha’s FJR, Kawasaki’s Concours and BMW’s K1300GT. Though side cases are only available as accessory options, along with a top case and windshield.

Further announcing its sport-touring cred, Suzuki describes the GSX1250FA chassis as a “Classic tube-frame chassis, with rake and trail chosen for an excellent balance between sporty handling and highway cruising comfort.” Wheelbase at 58.5 inch is identical to the current Bandit 1250S sold in the US, as are the wheel/tire sizes (120/70 front, 180/55 rear) and fuel capacity at five gallons. The adjustable seat is taller, however, ranging from 31.9 to 32.7 inches thanks to mounting spacers.

The 43mm fork and single rear shock are preload adjustable. A triple-disc braking package, dual front rotors and single rear, brings the claimed curb weight of 567 lbs to a stop.

Suzuki has not released further details, including expected price. In fact, it is still unclear whether the new Zook will even make it to American shores. Stay tuned for more details.

The GSX1250FA appears to be a faired version of Suzuki’s Bandit, with side cases and other touring-friendly features available as accessories.

2010 Suzuki Bandit 1250 and 1250-ABS

Blacked out engine, stripped down front end and new fender. the new Bandit gets a fashion makeover for 2010.

A glance at the 2010 Bandit’s spec sheet and there is little to distinguish it from the 1250S currently sold in America. The same 1255cc liquid-cooled Inline Four and six-speed transmission make up the powertrain – even the right-side 4-into-1 exhaust looks identical. Add to that the same chassis, brakes and suspension…

But photos of the Bandit’s new bodywork reveal it certainly looks more the streetfighter than its American sibling. Gone is the front’s half-fairing, ripped off in favor of a minimalist naked look. Sharper lines are further conveyed by the new front fender.

The Bandit’s engine has been blacked out too, for a darker look – freshening things up without making too many radical changes to the overall design.

The Bandit 1250 will be available in an ABS version too. Yet, so far, these models are for Europe only, with Suzuki officials awaiting word on whether the new 1250s will be American bound.
