Suzuki Bandit 1200 Becomes a Turbo Wolf [Photo Gallery]
text size: A- A+
The Suzuki Bandit 1200 is a truly nifty bike for those who appreciate the smooth powerful way this machine rolls. However, when it comes to truly evil bikes, the big Bandit is a rather small thief, if you get the joke.
Since Custom Wolf wanted to show just how brutal can such a ride become, the first thing was to add a turbo charger to the intake, thus solving the power problem. A GSX-1100R provided the frame, since it was clear that a beastly engine had to be loaded into a more sporty chassis, with a Wolf subframe.
Now the game was on, and more high-performance parts were direly needed. A Hayabusa triple tree came in place, holding the fork now loaded with Wilbers springs and a modified MT 03 headlight. An ARC/ Custom Wolf swingarm was manufactured, and Akront 2-piece 17” rims installed.
The ABM pegs, GSX-R brakes which now squeeze the wave rotors and the Motogadget gauge are the last mass-produced parts of the Turbo Wolf. Fender, handlebars, rear cowl and seat, exhaust and other switches and mounts, they are all made in-house. Not sure if the Turbo Wolf is exactly street legal, but we believe it smokes many other bikes on the track.
