– 2001 Suzuki GSF 600 S Bandit


Suzuki’s street bike line has a solid reputation as having some of the best values in the industry. Versatile machines that have broad appeal, they offer the right combination of price, performance and style. For 2001, all three models have received significant updates using input from Suzuki owners and dealers. You’ll still find the performance these models are known for, but with refined styling and new features.


Bandit GSF600S

After receiving significant upgrades in 2000, the Bandit 600S returns with positive reviews and a big thumbs-up from thousands of new owners. Carry-over features include an aggressively-styled half-fairing with twin projector-beam head-lights and a tall/wide windscreen with a vent system to reduce turbulence around the rider’s helmet. Mounted in the fairing are step-motor-powered instruments with an LCD odometer and tripmeter, plus wide adjustable mirrors. The Katana 600-based engine is equipped with 31mm Keihin carburetors and a throttle position sensor for better low-rpm response. Supporting it all is a cradle-style steel frame with 25o rake angle and a long 56.7-inch wheelbase for precise handling. Other chassis features include a large 290mm front disc brake, wide wheels with radial tires and a low 31.1-inch seat height. Completing the package are convenience features such as a 5.3 gallon fuel tank, a large storage area, and an easy-to- use centerstand and a one-piece passenger grab handle.
