Suzuki GSF1250 (Bandit)

The Suzuki GSF1250 Bandit was introduced in 2007 as a replacement for Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit. Unlike its predecessor, the model has received a number of technical changes:

  • Engine. It received liquid cooling, a second balancer shaft, an injection power system and increased its volume from 1157 to 1255 cm³. Maximum power remained at 100 hp, but engine revs were lowered to increase torque at low revs.
  • Brake system. Returns to 4-piston calipers and ABS versions.
  • Transmission. Instead of the old 5-speed, the model gets a more modern 6-speed.
  • Fuel tank. The capacity is reduced from 20 liters to 19 liters.

In 2012, the naked version without fairing (GSF1250) is discontinued and is no longer offered by dealers, leaving only the version with a front fairing (GSF1250S) on the market.

In 2015, the Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit model receives a slight update (now plastic covers the radiator), and in 2016 it is discontinued.

In 2010, on a common basis with the GSF1250, a sport-tourist modification was proposed - Suzuki GSX1250F.
