  • What about this??

    Hey guys i was just looking and i thought that the Suzuki bandit looks pretty interesting.. I didn't like the naked look but i searched and found a full fairing kit for them for like $400 and it looks pretty decent..

    I believe the Bandit, mechanically, is fairly identical to the Kat. Same engine, controls, etc. Lots of interchangeable parts. Different frame, though. Performance should be pretty much the same.

    The Bandit 1200S is on my list of bikes that I WILL own, by the way.

      Bandits are sweet, and the 1200's have some serious balls.

      Faired



      Naked



      They're both sweet.

                  If you took the bandit front end and stuck it on a 98+ Kat, you have a Kandit or Bantana but really though, I do like the fully faired bandits better than the naked look, just personal preference.

                    The seating/riding position on the Bandits is more upright than even the 750 Katanas. The Bandits have 'bicycle' handlebars and, I believe, lower foot pegs, so they are more like the FZ1/FZ6 or the Honda 919.

                      In terms of the engine, the Bandit 600 and the Kat 600 share the same engine -- same pistons, stroke/bore, etc. The only serious difference is the cam grinds as far as I've been able to tell -- the bandit has it's cams ground for more torque on the bottom end, while the kat has cams ground to give more power at the top end.

                      Cheers,

                            It's a hooligan bike -- just right for stunting, inner-city carving... I'm surprised though that the US didn't get the new Bandit 650 yet (it was avail in Europe as an '05 model -- I expect it here as an '06).
