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.

You want to talk about power? Well, you can’t have a conversation about power without bringing up the Suzuki Bandit 1250SA, especially when this all-around cruiser carries the kind of juice it has inside its body.
Of course, we’re talking about the 1,255cc liquid-cooled engine the Bandit possesses that delivers arm-stretching power and torque. More than just its performance credentials, the Bandit 1250SA also comes with Suzuki’s new SDTV fuel injection system, making that ride that much more impressive.
In addition, the secondary balancer shaft on the bike decreases vibration while the new slick-shifting six-speed transmission enhances acceleration and reduces top gear rpm at highway speeds. Finally, the hydraulic clutch and the liquid-cooled oil cooler have both been added to further supplement the bike’s big-bore power plant.
If handling is of any concern, riders will be pleased to know that the Suzuki Bandit 1250SA has a chassis that features a frame with larger diameter down tubes for better balance and handling. From there, the wide seat is height adjustable by up to 20mm, allowing for enhanced comfort riding along with the large-capacity fuel tank.
In giving the Bandit 1250SA a meaner bite, the dedicated team of Suzuki engineers successfully built a cruiser of unmatched performance, style, and value. At the end of the day, that’s really all you can ask for.

Suzuki introduces the 2009 1250S and 1250S ABS models with little, but notable upgrades even though at a first glance nothing seems to be new on the bikes. A full fairing wouldn’t suit it well so designers haven’t got much work to do this year, at least in what concerns the Bandits.
If you were thinking about the bike drinking gas, I say think again! This baby is so drunk that it won’t go anywhere soon. The bottles even got under its skin, respective tires.
So after seeing this picture what should we expect for? A bike going "Hi, my name is Suzy and I didn’t even touch a bottle ever since my last experience in February 2008."
