Having rode a 2000 faired Bandit for my first year of biking, the Triumph is MILES away from the quality of the Suzuki. As soon as I rode away from the dealers having snapped up a brand new S4 for £3700 (plus alarm) (!!!) I knew instantly I was totally hooked. The sound of the engine is great, it sounds like a modern, tight engine, one to be proud of compared to the lazy, loose sounding Bandit. Although I'm still officially running it in, the pick up is very quick and responsive. Obviously being a 600, the gears dissappear pretty quickly, nonetheless when comparing to the Bandit, this feels 10 times quicker :) Brakes are superb, handles like a dream, goes around roundabouts lower than I ever imagined I could go, but am using nearly all of the tyre...eek. Sounds too good to be true.......It is. Just a shame you see the big name bikes like Bandit/Fazer/Hornet/Sv650 in the mags every week and the S4 is missed out...why? Probably because it's better :). Strengths: PRICE Quality of components Handling Looks Hooliganism. Weaknesses: Tank range only 100 miles ish.
