The Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit is a simple, dependable workhorse of a bike. Its lazily tuned big-bore 1255cc engine makes just 97bhp and will run to huge mileages without a problem if serviced properly.
What’s more, it is comfortable over long distance with good weather protection and tall bars, which is just as well since it will go 217 miles between fill-ups.
