  • A decent bike

    Jul 22, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fairly cheap, not powerful ugly
    Cons: Air/oil cooling system, lack of power, and I wrecked mine

    Summary: One could do worse than buy a Suzuki Bandit. It is more of a cruiser type bike than a sports bike, ... read more

    Pros: RED LOOKS COOL FAST ENOUGH cheap to own and maintain
    Cons: Buzzy not a 1200

    Summary: After 18 years street riding, from a Honda XL 350, Honda Ascot 500 to a Honda Hawk GT, I find myse ... read more

  • Great Bike!

    May 7, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: great beginner's bike, speedy, sporty, easy to maintain
    Cons: sport riders will notice a softness around fast, hard turns

    Summary: Overall, the Bandit is a great bike! I bought mine as a first bike and was acclimated to it's weight, handling, mechanics within 10 minutes. The oil change is a piece of cake and other maintenance (spark plugs, chain service) are easy too. I have ... read more

  • Great affordable bike with some compromises

    Mar 17, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks, performance
    Cons: Warm up time, handlebar vibration

    Summary: I bought this bike after reading reviews on it for a multitude of sources. It was said to be a great cross between a sport bike and a basic street bike. Good for commuting (which is what I got it for). On the whole I am pleased with it, but there ... read more

  • Aye Yi Yi Yi..... away on my Bandit (0)

    Jul 8, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, comfortable, easy to ride
    Cons: a little under powered, a slight shudder at highway speeds

    Summary: After a long hiatus I managed to get back into the “Epinion” mode again. This time, I managed to get my hands on a few motorcycles in between work days. The Suzuki Bandit 600 was introduced in the United States in 1996. This bike remained ... read more

  • An excellent compromise between comfort and sportiness.

    Jul 24, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Upright seating
    Cons: The 5000 rpm shutter

    Summary: I have been riding this bike for about a year. This is important, because I'm less biased than when I just bought the bike(yea, who's going to say new new purchase is a pile of junk). So, with 7000 miles on the Bandit, what do I think? Worth every ... read more

  • Fun for a great price!

    May 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Best deal for the price!
    Cons: Low end a little flabby.

    Summary: I recently purchased my first Suzuki Bandit 600s. I had plenty of enduro/dirt bike experience and road experience on a large Harley. So having those experiences I wanted something "middle of the road" at a decent price. I found a great bike for those ... read more

  • Nice Bike

    Pros: Great handling fun to ride bike. Lots of mid-range power. Comfortable during all rides.
    Cons: Vibration at mid range rpm

    Summary: I have had my GSF600 for 2 years and would highly recommend this bike to anyone. It is very fun to ride and has a pretty good power band. The bike is affordable compared to other bikes of the same character and is very dependable. Great for those nice ... read more

  • Even better than I imagined.

    Nov 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Noticeable improvements over older models.
    Cons: That styling could still use some refining.

    Summary: I purchased this Bandit to replace my 1996 Suzuki Bandit. I had reservations about the new styling at first and would like to see Suzuki bring a naked version back to the States. The riding position and wind protection have greatly improved since the 96 ... read more

  • 600GFS Bandit

    Nov 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun, cool looking, price
    Cons: Not for long rides

    Summary: I had traded my '86 Intruder in for the Bandit, but I wish I'd kept my Intruder. I had driven +5000 miles to WA state and back from Texas on the Intruder, loaded down with gear and an ex-wife, and I'd do it again (with a different passenger, though). The ... read more

    Pros: Styling, power, handling, brakes, large fuel tank and good gas mileage
    Cons: Mid-rpm vibration, lack of power at low rpms

    Summary: When the opportunity arose, after a seven-year hiatus, to return to motorcycling, I felt that a standard motorcycle would serve me best. I needed something to ride to March Air Reserve Base, a hundred miles north and 1,500 feet higher than my home. On ... read more

    Pros: Nice looking, Good acl
    Cons: Stalls out on me alot

    Summary: First off let me say that i love my bandit. There is a catch though, the thing makes me nuts. The bike has repeatadly stalled on me thoughout the year that I've had it. I bought the bike about a year ago and everyone in my motorcycle club was excited. ... read more

    Pros: Great bike for a great price
    Cons: there are none

    Summary: I bought this motorcycle because of the way it looked. It has the body and engine of a sports bike, but it is as comfortable as a cruiser. Just last week this guy came chasing after me wanting to talk to me about it. I ride this bike all the time up ... read more

    Pros: fast, maneuverable, fun, attractive
    Cons: revs high on the freeway

    Summary: I recently bought my Suzuki Bandit 600S and I've been delighted with it. Judging from its intense acceleration, it seems to get more out of it's 600cc engine than other bikes in its class. Its four-cylinder four-cycle engine rumbles pleasantly at ... read more

    Pros: Very comfortable, fast and looks
    Cons: No fuel warning light.

    Summary: This bike is awesome. This is my first bike and I love it. It has fast pickup and is very reliable. It got the sports bike feel to it but I can go on for hours on it without killing my back and arms. I would recommend this over R6 or a ... read more
