And made it way more money
Because only a wanker would desire another color?
According to the Suzuki website, the last model was a 2011. I figured after they sold the last of the 11s that would be it.
I put a search in cycletrader. They aren't anywhere close to being sold out yet.
Suzuki has been known to skip model years if a model doesn't sell, perhaps they'll offer it for 2013. I saw on Visordown that they are offering it in the UK with bags and a gps, cheap, so they're still making them.
I bought a heavily discounted '11 in July. Like Grainbelt said, there are plenty more out there.
That's good news. There is hope for all of us then!
The Suzuki Bandit has alot of things I like including the price. I know the Bandit is no Dual Sporter but say if I saw a dirt road that looks intersting and wanted to go up and have a look would the Suzuki Bandit be capable of such a detour? I currently have a 650 V-strom and its getting costly to run and service. (great bike but... wouldnt buy another) Or should go to the BMW website and look at a 800 GS?? My main point of reference is Jacobs Ladder in Tasmania, Australia. (see pic)

I wanna do this trip next year. Would the Suzuki Bandit 1250S get me from Darwin, NT to Jacob's Ladder, TAS and back again, hassle and monkey but free??? :huh
The Bandit would be capable, others have ridden dirt on them. That being said I prefer to have the Bandit and a F800GS at my disposal.
You know a dealer with a left over '11? Let me know. Cheers
You'll have to find your ass with your own two hands:
RE: Dirt Roads...
Anything is possible. I hustled the lard ass 1250 down 100+ miles of unexpectedly rough forest service roads a few years back...
It does as well as most big bikes on street tires... Not great, but it'll get you further than you'd think if you never tried it.
Okay, then. Pretty good prices. For 9K, there's not much out there that compares. Thanks for the site.
still have some parts for a 600s.
fender extender and progressive rear shock.
$100 shipped. pm me.
For half that you can get a used one.
Anyone here have a set of passenger pegs on hand they could part with? PO removed them from my 2005 B12.
Futzing around with a small piece of ply in my carport ( which is gravel) while trying to line it up to get her on the centre stand. She started to go over (the opposite side I was on) and there was definitely a moment when i thought "Sheeit its going over". Managed to keep it upright and not completely strain my back. It was definitely hovering on the point of no return... :eek1
who has a 600???
Dang! That's a great deal.
Fellas, if you've got the time to post up: I understand the B12 has a vacuum activated fuel delivery system. My searches have come up with little in regards to running it out of fuel. For winterizing, I've been told that I just stabilize fuel, put the fuel valve switch to ON, then drain the carbs with the Drain Screws only (Part 25 on Fuel System 4-7 in the GSF1200S manual - my bike's an '01). I can't seem to run it out of fuel after switching the valve to any of the three positions (or did I not run it long enough?). Forgive the confusion on my end, I admit I'm not much of a wrencher. Last bike was FI, and previous to that I was on 80's bikes and rode on an off in the winter anyway.
The Bandit petcock SHOULD not flow fuel in on or res when NOT running(know to leak).......either drain each bowl on the carbs or pull and plug the vac line going to the petcock and run it dry in on or res.
