2016 Suzuki Bandit 1250S ABS Review

2016 Suzuki Bandit 1250S ABS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Designed to be The Top Performer in its class…

You can’t break the laws of physics, but the 2016 Suzuki Bandit 1250S ABS shows that you sure can bend them. Its Suzuki fuel-injected four-cylinder engine offers thrilling acceleration in every gear, with a rush of high-rpm performance. For crisp, precise handling on twisty roads, it has balanced suspension systems front and rear. It also features a technically advanced Antilock Braking System (ABS)* that monitors wheel speed, and matches stopping power to available traction.

*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

The Suzuki Bandit has won the respect and admiration of riders around the globe with its unmatched quality, wide power spread, and exceptional balance of performance, technology, and style. The new Bandit 1250S ABS refines its styling with a sculpted half-fairing that wraps around the radiator sides and is vented just below the headlight. In addition to sharpening the Bandit’s looks, the fairing improves aerodynamics providing riders with great wind protection and riding comfort.

Think of the Suzuki GSX1250F 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 GSX1250F 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 GSX1250F – with exciting performance and truly versatile capabilities, it’s an all-around sportbike at an exceptional value.

*The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.

The analogue tachometer on the left incorporates FI and ABS indicators. The LCD panel on the right displays a digital speedometer and odometer, dual trip meters, clock, and a fuel gauge.

Standard equipment:
The height of the comfortably contoured seat can be adjusted up or down by 20mm. The grab bar is fitted as standard and incorporates hooks on either side of its base that are convenient on long tours. Also standard is the convenient centre stand.


 

 

 

2016 Suzuki Bandit 1250S ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE FEATURES
Powering the Bandit S is a 1,255cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, DOHC, four-cylinder engine delivering a wide spread of power for relaxed cruising or sport riding.

Engineered for smooth operation, the engine has an effective secondary balancer shaft.

Power is transmitted through a 6-speed transmission using gear ratios chosen for impressive accelerations as well as smooth highway use. Clutch operation is low effort and smooth, with low maintenance, thanks to a hydraulic clutch actuation system.

The state-of-the-art Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) digital closed-loop EFI system also delivers improved mileage and reduced emissions.

The 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust system is built of steel and stainless steel and is equipped with a catalyzer and HO2 sensor. The large silencer controls sounds while permitting excellent flow to maximize torque and overall engine power.

To shed heat from the high torque, large displacement engine, a high capacity radiator is employed. Cooling air is directed to the radiator via the front fender and directed away by the outer fairing shroud.

Additional engine cooling comes from a liquid-cooled oil cooler, similar to the type used on the GSX-R750.

 

CHASSIS FEATURES
The refined half-fairing wraps around the radiator sides and is vented just below the headlight. In addition to sharpening the Bandit’s looks, the fairing improves aerodynamics providing riders with great wind protection and riding comfort.
