I have a 07 Bandit 1250 and my son rides an 09 Fz1. He loves his bike but wishes it had more low end grunt. There are many ways to improve its bottom end but compared to my Suzuki it feels pretty weak until about 7k then it leaves me for dead. But around town stoplight to stoplight and top gear roll ons torque rules. The FZ1s 26k valve adjustment intervals are a big plus in my book as my Suzuki only goes 15k. But you cant go wrong with any of the bikes mentioned here, before my Bandit I had an 05 FJR and it was a great bike.
