Motorcycle insurance bargains: Suzuki Bandit 1250S

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Suzuki Bandit 1250S.     

Insurance group: 13
Engine: 16v liquid-cooled in-line four, 6 gears 
Power: 97bhp
Top speed: 145mph
Weight: 229kg               

The latest big-bore GSF1250 Bandit gets a 98cc bigger, 1255cc water-cooled, fuel-injected, tourque-laden peach of an engine. The GSF1250 Bandit's frame and suspension have also been upgraded to give a sumptuous, well-mannered mileage machine that can also run in the twisties. Plus it's only group 11 to insure.      

With nigh-on 80ftlb of torque delivered to the rear wheel at 3700rpm, the Suzuki GSF1250 Bandit’s new six-speed gearbox needs little provocation. The GSF1250 will cheerfully pull from 3500rpm in top gear and run on to 140+mph. You get a lot of muscle for your money.

The 1250 Bandit has a reputation for extreme reliability and as a genuine all-rounder. Commute on it all year then take off 2-up to France in the summer...
