2013 Suzuki GSX1250FA Review

2013 Suzuki GSX1250FA

Introducing the fully faired all-rounder, the GSX1250FA.

Featuring distinctive sport-style fairing, the GSX1250FA leads the way in styling, just as it leads the way in all-round sporty performance, user-friendly comfort and unmatched value.

A fuel injected powerplant with a full 1255cc of robust torque at your service, starting from way low in the rev range.

The GSX1250FA has a distinctive sporty full fairing delivering a neat combination of dramatic looks and all-day comfort. Highly refined total balance and exceptional value.

Whether you already have your choice of destinations or are looking for new places to visit, let the GSX1250FA help make your upcoming riding days time well spent.

 

With appealing power and low-down grunt from its 1,255cc fuel injected engine plus full weather protection, ABS braking, adjustable seat, adjustable levers and full instrumentation, the GSX1250FA is a lot of bike for the money. Its addictive and effortless torque makes it ideal for piling on the miles. For upping the pace, dial in the power on the straights and the twisties to appreciate the very best of sports touring.

With a 10.5:1 to compression ratio the big engine produces maximum torque at just 3,700 rpm, thereby defining the sophisticated appeal of the machine. Digital fuel injection and a 19 litre fuel tank provides optimum economy and more miles between fill-ups further to allow long distance riding in comfort.

Riders will be pleased it comes complete with a good old fashioned centre-stand. For routine servicing, parking the bike on the level, loading panniers and topping up at fuel stations we believe a centre-stand is invaluable and highlights the practical considerations for such a bike. With the latest digital ABS braking technology allied to big twin discs and Tokico calipers up front, and convenient instrumentation such as a gear position indicator and shift light, the GSX1250FA is the best value sports tourer on the market

 

Think of the Suzuki GSX1250FA as a kinetically charged invitation to enjoy the ride of your life. It has a fuel-injected powerplant with loads of torque and a wide powerband, which gives it awesome acceleration in every gear matched by heart-pounding top-end performance. It features advanced suspension front and rear, giving you the advantage when the road turns twisty.

With its fully faired design, the GSX1250FA rewards you with a smooth and comfortable highway ride mile after mile after mile. It also has Suzuki's Digital Antilock Brake System (ABS) for optimum braking performance. The GSX1250FA - with exciting performance and truly versatile capabilities, it's an all-around sportbike at an exceptional value.

For 2013, it's available in Metallic Alba Blue, Glass Splash White and Glass Sparkle Black.
