suzuki bandit

Suzuki's latest 1255cc liquid-cooled Bandit engine boasts some mighty muscles in stock form. Prodigious bottom end torque delivered in a silken fashion that virtually renders the six-speed gearbox redundant while also delivering excellent 5 litres per 100km economy.  Now take one standard Suzuki Bandit 1250, add Yoshimura camshafts and muffler, along with some air box trimming and Power Commander fettling by master tuner Phil Tainton, and the result equals major grunt! The real benefits from the modifications start to be felt above 4000rpm before really gathering steam from 6000rpm and maintaining that charge right through to 9000rpm. Power then tails off gently, ensuring you know just when to change gears, thus avoiding the rev-limiter.

The standard bike is good for 103hp @ 8500rpm and 82Nm of torque at 6000rpm. A few hours at Phil Tainton's PTR workshop and $2500 later sees the Bandit emerge with a more responsive and eager 136hp @ 8000rpm and 103Nm of torque at 7500rpm, which is an impressive 30 per cent improvement.
