Suzuki GSF650 Bandit (2007-2008)

The Suzuki GSF 650 Bandit entered the market in 2005 as the successor to the Suzuki GSF 600 Bandit. Unlike the previous version, the new GSF650 received a number of small differences:

  • Engine. Increased its volume from 599 to 656 cc, reduced the compression ratio from 11.3 to 10.5: 1, slightly increased the torque characteristic at low revs. New 4-in-2 exhaust.
  • Appearance. Got more modern naked features, new LCD panel and headlight.
  • Pendants. The front fork gets preload adjustment and chassis rigidity is increased.
  • Brakes. Versions with ABS are available.
  • Dry weight. Compared to the latest generation GSF600, the dry weight has decreased by 7 kg.
  • Ergonomics. The ability to adjust the height of the handlebar and saddle is added.

As in the previous model, the new one is also offered in two versions: regular (' Suzuki GSF650 Bandit ) and with a fairing (' Suzuki GSF650S Bandit ).

In 2007, the model undergoes a serious restyling and finally departs from the old concept Suzuki GSF600 Bandit:

  • Engine. It gets liquid cooling, an increased compression ratio (from 10.5 to 11.5: 1), a dual-throttle fuel injection system (SDTV - Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve) and an increase in performance to 85 hp. power.
  • Brakes. The diameter of the front brake discs is increased from 290 to 310 mm, the 2-piston calipers are replaced by 4-piston ones.
  • Frame and chassis. Increase in stiffness by 10%. New rear shock absorber.
  • Fuel tank. Nominally, it did not change, but the presence of a submersible fuel pump reduced the actual volume to 19 liters.
  • Clutch. The clutch cable drive was replaced with a hydraulic one.
  • Transmission. Gear ratios have changed slightly.
  • Dry weight. Increases by 14 kg.

In 2008, on the basis of the Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, a sports-touring model was built - the Suzuki GSX650F. In fact, this is the same second generation Bandit 650 in full plastic.

In 2009, the model underwent another small restyling, which affected only the appearance. The regular version received a naked-style headlamp. Both versions received a modified brake light, dashboard, slightly redesigned exhaust system and a black engine.

2012 was the last year of production for the naked Suzuki Bandit 650, while the S version continued in production until 2015, after which it also left the market.
