Creating motorcycle model brand names is often heralded as a dream job. Whoever it was who created 'Bandit' for Suzuki in 1989 clearly did genius work for this 'edgy, if not comedic' brand is still in use today. Bar one model (the 2018 GSX150, a DOHC 4-stroke single) all Bandits use DOHC, 4-valve, in-line, cross-the-frame, 4-cylinder motors - 248cc through 1,255cc – all dressed in naked or semi-naked sports-tourer guise. Notwithstanding this focus the Bandit has earned a 'hooligan' reputation in the UK and the big one, the GSF1200 – this bike – remains popular with stunt riders. The 1200 motor is a SACS-equipped unit (short for Suzuki Advanced Cooling System). This super-cooling system – jets of oil are shot are the bottoms of the pistons – have earned the motor's reputation as super-durable.

From 2001 the 1200 Bandit received a thorough revamp, not dissimilar to that of one of the 600s. New rear bodywork, fully electronic instrumentation, new carburetors, PAIR (Pulsed Air Injection – feeding clean air into the exhaust), six piston Tokico front brake calipers, and several more detail changes.

This 2001 Suzuki Bandit has the new aerodynamic fairing complete with projector-beam headlights installed. The air/oil-cooled 1157cc 4-cylinder still has great low rpm torque and a strong powerband, making this touring machine once a blast to ride and it has an upgraded seat and Two Brothers exhaust system, although the original comes with the bike. This machine will need a new wiring harness and extensive additional recommissioning before being ridden again.
