FS: 2008 Suzuki Bandit 1250S abs – JS1GW72B68210028 – only 1,709 mi – $4,999.00

This Bandit 1250 was purchased in 2011 from RMC in Renton. At that time it had only racked up 1,375 miles with its first owner, unfortunately the second owner got even less use and only added another 335 miles on it before having to decide to stop riding due to health issues.   It is just the way it was purchased from RMC, it has a tall Zero Gravity windscreen installed, a 2-Brothers slip on exhaust and comes with a set of Tourmaster soft side bags and a cover.   Not much of a paper trail as it has only had its first break in service performed.  We gave it a complete going over in service and this bike looks to be in great condition.  These are one of the better bargains in the market.   Owners manual and 1 original key included.

Here is what the press said about this model:

Suzuki’s first Bandit 1200 debuted in 1997 and was redesigned for 2001, so you had to figure it was about due for another makeover. We last tested a Bandit 1200S in our October 2005 issue when this air/oil-cooled four displaced 1,157cc and was carbureted. Such technology no longer passes muster with tightening emissions standards, so for its revamp Suzuki went to full liquid cooling, fuel injection, a catalytic converter and pulse air injection to keep the planet happy. To please the moto enthusiasts they changed out the five-speed transmission for a six-speed, and boosted displacement to 1,255cc. The latter was achieved by increasing the stroke from 59.0mm to 64.0mm while leaving the bore at 79.0mm. Compression was raised from 9.5 to 10.5:1, yet Suzuki recommends feeding it fuel with a minimum octane rating of only 87-regular gas.

The steel 5.0-gallon tank can accept a magnetic tankbag, and our test bike averaged 40.5 miles per gallon while being ridden aggressively. For convenience there are bungee hooks below the rear of the seat, and plenty of places to hook bungees down by the passenger pegs. Pull off the easily removable seat to find a pair of helmet holders and a fairly complete toolkit. The centerstand is included (it’s becoming an endangered convenience these days).  Everyone wants good value for the money, and if you seek a good, honest, adult-sized machine that doesn’t skimp on any of the important stuff while delivering comfort, power, handling and braking in spades, this bargain big guy should certainly be on your short list of major candidates.

Credits cards accepted, up to $150.00 documentation charge may be added.
