The first generation Suzuki Bandit 600 managed to give the middleweight budged bike segment an adrenaline boost, featuring a sharp styling and a detuned GSX-R motor.

Unfortunately the coming years were far from being as glorious as the inception, and the motorcycle was forgotten by Suzuki’s engineers. For a long period of time, the Bandit 600 didn’t receive any upgrades and continued to wear its old cloth and engine. Fortunately, things have started to change in 2005, when the bike was blessed with a performance boost, after the engine’s capacity was raised up to 656 cc.

The year 2007 has brought a new series of upgrades too. As everyone’s concern was to reduce novice emissions, Suzuki’s engineers made the Bandit’s engine more efficient by replacing the carburetors technology with fuel injection and also adding liquid cooling. Additional changes were made in 2009 when the exterior design was slightly tweaked.

Launched in 2011, the GSR750’s has created a niche of its own featuring a de-tuned version of the 2005 Suzuki GSX-R750 motor and a razor sharp which makes us insane about it. Unfortunately the bike comes without suspension adjustments and no intimidating radial breaks either. Though it makes us happy to know that it features ABS, a bespoke bodywork and sporty on road abilities.

The GSR750 ABS combines a 749cc motor with a unique chassis that creates the best qualities of a compact tubular streetbike frame and the pin-point accuracy of a twin-spar sportsbike frame. Aditionally a KAYABA suspension on its engine makes this vehicle as a unique machine that provides strong acceleration from linear low-to-mid range torque and an intensely exciting ride.

Its narrow chassis is enabling more riders to plant their feet firmly on the ground. We also need to send a shout to the high spec’ Kayaba USD 41mm forks fitted up front and the rear damper which is also a Kayaba so both ends can be fine tuned to suit the rider’s weight and riding style.

Compared to the previous model the 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 didn’t changed too much. However, the main upgrade is the addition of a traction control system. If in the past traction control was a rarity among motorcycles, in the latest years has started to become a mainstream feature.

Apart from the traction control system the new YZFR-R1 has also received a fresh nose, a slotted top yoke inspired by the YZR-M1, new muffler end caps, a longer sear shock and grippier footpegs. The rear spring reat is also slightly softer which improves the ride comfort.
Though despite its upgrades the Yamaha YZF-R1 is still a half step behind models like the Aprilia RSV4 or Kawasaki ZX-10R which would beat it any time on a race track. However, the Yamaha YZF-R1 is a better daily commuter as is more comfortable, smooth and fast enough to keep your dopamine levels high.

In 2011, Yamaha India made some serious waves in the Indian motorcycle market with the release of the FZ16, FZS, Fazer, and YZF R15. Following the remarkable release of some of the best bikes to enter the market, Yamaha is upping the ante with the launch of the Fazer 250cc. The bike, for all intents and purposes, is Yamaha’s next step in reaching for the success of the 250cc segment.

The all new Yamaha Fazer 250cc is expected to be powered by a newly designed 153cc air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, single-cylinder, 2-valve engine. The engine is capable of producing 14 horsepower and a max torque of 13.6 Nm (10 lb-ft).

Just like the FZ16 and FZ-S, the Yamaha Fazer carries the Monocross suspension, a technology that ensures agile running performance and handling. The placement of this model’s ‘MidShip Muffler’ toward the center of the machine provides the right kind of weight balance that makes for an efficient ride.
