Im wondering if anybody thinks there is a better bang for the buck then the 1200 bandit? I have a 99 that I bought new for 6400.00 including shipping and frieght. Considering most big sport and sport touring bikes are at least 9 grand. I think another great thing about the bandit is it gets tremendous gains from a slip on and carb jetting. My bike is still stock ( has tons of power right off idle) and I cant wait to see the way it feels with an extra 15-17 rear wheel horsepower added. These easy extra gains also add to the tremendous bang for the buck. Can anybody think off a bike that even comes close in this department? Hats off to suzuki for supplying us with tremendous thrills without sending us to the poor house.
