New Bike: Suzuki unveil GSX1250FA for 2010

Suzuki is releasing the GSX1250FA as a new model for 2010 – essentially a fully-faired Bandit 1250. The new machine uses the engine and chassis from the Bandit 1250S, but with a new full fairing mimicking the GSX650F. The first pictures show a selection of genuine Suzuki touring accessories too, indicating Suzuki is pitching the bike as a cut-price all-rounder. UK price...

New Bandit

I think that this model looks great !!...I also think that the colour looks in keeping with the bike. I always thought that the 650 faired model looked out of place in the GSXR colours !!.

New Suzuki Model

So what's the difference between this new model and my fully faired Bandit 1250 SA GT K9 with panniers fitted as standard?

I like the Sprint ST too but this will be about 2 grand cheaper I would think.

It does look quite nice though would consider a new one whereas something like the forthcoming VFR1200 will be way out of my price range.

Fashion disasters

Suzuki have serious marketing problems if they think a guy wearing brown leather trousers is going to sell anything. "Yeah … I wanna be like THAT dude…"

As for the bike, not much to say really. Everyone knows it'll be cheap and it'll work. Ah … I get it. "Even brown leather trousers won't stop you buying this bike."

Perfect?

On paper this should be a solid all rounder. New VFR & Sprint our nice but they are too expensive, too complex, and the running costs too high. This bike wont be popolar with the weekend warriors but will be perfect for the long distance commuters among us who expect the bike to do everything. That is with one reservation........

Will the build quality cope with the british winters?

I like this a lot! I must admit this has gotten me very excited, The problem with the bandit 1250 although agreat bike I wouldnt really have classified as long distance friendly due to the lack of wind protection. But this strikes me as near as the perfect road bike. Thankyou suzuki you have brought me and a lot of other I know the near perfect bike. I look forward to the write ups

Great idea, but please Suzuki UK import it in some interesting and bright colours, red for example. Not those boring three tone red white and blue Suzuki racing colours that you to push on all your current machines. Other European countries' importers import brighter colours, why so many dark colours in the UK?

Also, make sure decent crash bungs are available for the GSX-F that don't need your dealers to have to take a hacksaw or core drill to the fairing in order to fit them. No-one wants to spend out on a new bike these days and risk dropping it, especially during those first few rides with a new bike when you're most likely to drop it anyway. They want the assurance of crash bungs to guard that lower fairing that's so expensive to replace. (Let's face it; who hasn't dropped a bike at some time - mostly those telling porkies - we've all done it at sometime and if you told me you hadn't I wouldn't believe you). It's about time manufacturers fitted crash bungs as standard.

Having just gone from a GSX750F to a Blackbird, Suzuki could be right on the money here.  If they give it a decent tank range and decent suspension they could be on to a very capable affordable all-rounder.
