Suzuki GSF600 Bandit model history
1995—

I have tried to tell the Suzuki Bandit 600 (GSF 600 and GSF 600 S) model history on this page as I know it. This page is still under construction. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

Under construction...

Several models and years are still missing from this page. I will put more pictures and stuff here when I find suitable material. Please send me material (JPEGs, facts, specs, brochure scans etc.) if you can!

The 2005-year's version of the 600 Bandit has a new larger engine and is now called GSF650 Bandit. The piston displacement has been increased by 56cc for better torque at low- and mid-revs. The bike is 4 kg (9 lbs) lighter and the suspension also revisited with more adjustements both front and rear. The seat height can be adjusted on the 2005-year's model, between 770 and 790 mm (19.56 to 20.07 inches). Also the handlebar height can be adjusted by one centimeter (0.4 in.). The new engine is now Black. ABS brakes are offered as an option.
