The Suzuki Bandit 650 has always been a reliable bike ideal for everyday use. A motorcycle which truly is meant for multitasking and quite literally a take it anywhere motorcycle. Suzuki now have announced a Bandit 650S variant for next year. 

The Suzuki Bandit 650S has a inline four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 656cc and produces 85 HP and 61.5 Nm of torque. The liquid-cooled engine features Suzuki’s SDTV fuel injection system making it more responsive in all conditions giving you instant power delivery every time. The handle bars have two adjustable positions while the clutch lever and brakes get four adjustable positions. The seat height can be adjusted in two levels. The model comes standard with ABS to provide maximum safety to the rider.

The Suzuki Bandit 650S will go on sale early next year internationally. With Suzuki having just announced the Intruder M800 in India at a pricey 8.8L, we think the Bandit 650 would have been a more strong contender for the India market considering the good response the other 600’s have got. Below is a detailed look at the specifications.
