2013 Suzuki Bandit 1250

Posted on by  

After its debut, the Bandit managed to become an icon in its segment in a pretty short time. Since then the motorcycle has been completely upgraded and today the Bandit 1250 continues to be one of the most wanted nakeds in its class.

The new Suzuki Bandit 1250 is powered by a 1, 2555 cc liquid cooled engine that cranks out enough power and torque to help you deal effortless even with the highway traffic. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the engine is combined with a secondary balancer shaft that reduces vibration.

The engine’s power is kept in leash by a six-speed transmission combined with a hydraulic clutch and liquid-cooled oil cooler.

Once on board you are met by a wide, height adjustable seat, a sporty handlebar and modern instruments.

The Suzuki Bandit 1250 is offered with a starting price of £7,176.

Overview

Suzuki Bandit 1250

It stole the imagination of open road riders everywhere. Now the Bandit is even better with its unmatched balance of superior performance, eye-catching style and advanced technology.

The compact 1,255cc liquid-cooled engine delivers arm-stretching power and torque, civilised by the smooth acceleration of the new SDTV fuel injection system. A secondary balancer shaft reduces vibration while the new slick-shifting six-speed transmission improves acceleration, at the same time reducing top gear rpm at highway speeds. A hydraulic clutch and liquid-cooled oil cooler complete the big-bore power plant.

The distinctive styling of the chassis isn’t just about looks either, the frame featuring larger diameter down tubes for better balance and handling. Meanwhile the wide seat is height adjustable by up to 20mm for improved comfort on those long rides and you’ll enjoy fewer interruptions thanks to the large-capacity fuel tank. In developing the Bandit 1250, the dedicated team of Suzuki engineers have produced a cruiser of unmatched performance, style and value.

A machine that truly owns the highway and gets you away.
