I had a Bandit 1200S. It was a good bike. And Dale Walker, Holeshot Engineering, gets an honest 121hp at the wheel with just a jetkit and a pipe. Very respectable. You might also consider a ZRX1200, my brother had one at the same time as my Bandit, and that ZRX would flat stomp my Bandit in any kind of a roll on, 80 lb ft of torque will do that for you, and my Bandit had a jet kit and pipe on it, although it wasn't Dale Walkers stuff. I found out later about his parts. He is the Bandit guy. Never had a Wee Strom. I sort of like big bike stomp. I'd buy another Bandit though, a very strong, basic bike. And they are getting pretty cheap.
