The Bandit, in all its shapes, colors and sizes is one of the most popular bikes Suzuki ever crafted, and2015 brings a revamped version of the big machine in the form of the Bandit 1250S ABS. Believe it or not, Suzuki has managed to retain the iconic attire of the Bandit but also endowed it with plenty of modern styling cues. The result is a semi-naked big-bore machine which looks like the all-rounder sport bike archetype.
Suzuki brought back the Big Bandit with a revised half-fairing which manages to mix the best of both worlds. It offers the good view of the engine and makes everything look light and nimble, just any naked bike would. At the same time, the radiator shrouds and the front cowl provide extra wind protection for the rider. Add in the new windscreen and get ready to take the Bandit 1250S ABS for longer trips, countryside roads and highways, alike.

Big engine, smooth gearbox, plenty of fun

The Bandit arrives with an 1,255cc in-line liquid-cooled four, tuned for a wide spread of power across the rev range. The 6-speed transmission keeps things on the sporty side, while making city runs pleasant and reassuring, as well. It is expected to deliver around 100 horsies.

New coating technologies were used for cylinder coating to reduce friction and minimize power loss, while a new 32-bit ECU takes care of updated mappings and better fuel economy. And with the glossy back engine paint matching the frame, swingarm and fork legs, the heart of the Bandit 1250S ABS looks really trick.
ABS, adjustable-height seats are on the house.

Stopping power comes from a dual 310mm rotor setup in the front and a 240mm rear disc, with 4-pot front calipers. Anti-locking brakes are standard for the 2015 Suzuki Bandit 1250S ABS, and this will definitely please safety-focused riders. The rider’s seat is height-adjustable and has 20mm of play (0.8”), and this should again, make a lot of people happy.

No price was mentioned yet, but things are expected to become clearer at the EICMA. We’ll be there to provide you with live info and extra photos. It will be great to be there and get an up-close experience with the 2015 Bandit 1250S ABS to determine whether the chromes bezels around the gauges look neat or just cheap.
