2011 Suzuki Motorcycle
A fully faired version of the Bandit, Suzuki’s new GSX1250FA clearly has some touring intentions, as accessory hard bags, rear top-box, and a windshield are now available to owners (pics 2-4 show accessories).
The GSX1250FA features a smooth and torquey liquid-cooled 1255cc DOHC inline four-cylinder motor that borrows heavily from Suzuki’s GSX-R technology.
The 43mm forks and single rear shock are preload adjustable only. Dual front and single rear rotor brakes bring the 1250’s claimed curb weight of 567 pounds down from speed, and now have optional ABS available.
A six-speed gearbox,ergonomics comfortable enough for daylong rides,and more than enough grunt to pull your arms from their sockets, complete an excellent package.
