The Suzuki Bandit a number of sport-standard motorcycles range from the following designs:

GSF250, 248 cc water-cooled (1989-2000)
GSF400, 398 cc water-cooled (1989-1997)
GSF600, 599 cc SACS (1995-2004)
GSF650, 656 cc SACS (2005-2006), 656 cc water-cooled (2007-2016)
GSF750, 748 cc SACS (1996-1999)
GSF1200, 1,157 cc SACS (1996-2007)
GSF1250, 1,255 cc water-cooled (2007-2016)

All products has DOHC inline four cylinder motors with 4 valves per cylinder. The GSF600 engine is dependent on the GSX-F 600 system, re-tuned for lots more mid-range torque. The GSF1200 engine was a bored out type of the GSXR1100 system, additionally re-tuned for more mid-range torque. The GXF650 and GXF1250 versions utilize latest fuel-injected, liquid-cooled motors, the GSF1250 having an auxiliary balance shaft to lessen vibrations.

‘S’ versions has a half-fairing, and beginning with model season 2000, they likewise have double headlights. ‘letter’ versions become unfaired naked bike with just one headlight. The option of the ‘S’ and ‘letter’ models differs with country and design year.

The Bandit show made a reputation as “hooligan bikes”. With additional current revisions, but the bicycle has had on a more streamlined and contemporary feel, using they more towards sports tourer territory. The GSF1200 remains popular with stunt cyclists, and is employed by a wheelie college in the united kingdom.

Launched in 1989, the GSF250 and GSF400 were nude road motorcycles, with liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engines derived from the GSX-R250 and GSX-R400 motorbikes, mounted as an anxious user in a steel trellis frame with single back shock absorber. In addition to the motors and transmission, the “baby Bandits” promote several of their parts. Limited editions have actually a retro-styled top fairing. ‘N’ designated systems posses clip-on handlebars. “GSF” and “Bandit” nomenclature is both made use of over the show’ chronology and marketplace location.

Initial generation GSF250 (GJ74A) brings 45 bhp (34 kW), as the GSF400 (GK75A) creates 59 bhp (44 kW). The GSF400 handles the excess power with a 525 string and double disk front side brakes (single-disk in united states), when compared with a 520 string and single front disk in the GSF250.

From 1991, the GSF400V obtained adjustable inlet timing via solenoid-controlled rocker arm engaging with supplementary cameras. Although these versions are generally called “GSF400V-V”, the ‘-V’ in fact denotes the 1997 Suzuki design season motorcycles. VVT brands are recognised by a red motor cover and some instances of a light gray system cover. The GSF250V came later, in 1995.

In 1992, system changes enhanced low-mid number torque trading off-peak power reduced to 53 bhp (40 kW) for GSF400 and 40 bhp (30 kW) for GSF250.

In 1995, the second generation GSF250V (GJ77A) and GSF400(V) (GK7AA) launched big changes, like brand-new styling, gasoline tank, swingarm, air filter set up, exhaust, seat, settings, system, etc.

All devices were restricted to 180 km/h (110 miles per hour) to conform to Japanese laws, but are easily de-restricted to a genuine optimum rate of 220 km/h (140 mph).

Unlike bandits marketed offshore, the 750 never featured the Bandit logo on the back fairings – alternatively it was labelled “GSF 750” with an inferior script reading “DOHC 16Valve”.
