2016 Suzuki Bandit 1250S

The Suzuki Bandit 1250S ABS returns to the lineup, and it has some touring intentions, as accessory hard bags, rear top-box, and a windshield are Suzuki-offered option available to owners.

The Bandit 1250S features a smooth and torquey liquid-cooled 1255cc DOHC inline four-cylinder motor that borrows heavily from Suzuki’s GSX-R technology, and Showa provides the basic suspension.

Dual 310mm front and single 240mm rear rotor brake bring the 1250S’s claimed curb weight of 560 pounds down from speed, and ABS is standard. A six-speed gearbox, ergonomics comfortable enough for daylong rides, and more than enough grunt complete an excellent package.
