Suzuki’s legendary Bandit has received a major makeover for 2007, after our first ride it seems impressive. But how does it compare to Honda’s already successful and award-winning CBF1000?
In 2006 Honda’s CBF1000F took MCN’s award for ‘Best All-rounder’ against some strong competition. Testers raved about it’s astonishing user-friendliness, versatility and value and it dusted off the competition in back to back tests. But for 2007 it faces a new challenge from Suzuki’s all new, big bore, 1250 Bandit.
Check out the video on the right to see how it fared.
