Suzuki GSF650 Bandit model history
2005—

I have tried to tell the Suzuki Bandit 650 (GSF 650 and GSF 650 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.

The 600 and 1200 Bandit models got upgraded for the 2005. The GSF600 Bandit got a new larger engine and is now called GSF650 Bandit. The piston displacement was 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 inches). The new engine is now Black. ABS brakes are offered as an option.

The 2007-year's Bandit 650 was upgraded in many ways, although t is not easy for an untrained eye to spot the differences between it and the previous incarnation. The old GSX-R600-derived air/oil-cooled engine got retired and the Suzuki GSF650 Bandit's engine evolved in 2007 into a new smooth-running liquid-cooled and fuel-injected engine with more torque and more power.

Also, the frame and suspension was updated in 2007. According to Suzuki it is 10% stiffer than previously with larger diameter frame tubes. Suspension got stiffer rear shock but slightly softer front end. The swingarm also increased in length.

For 2009 the GSF650S gets a new nose fairing making it look much sleeker and grown-up and complete with two useful storage pockets in the fairing. The naked version gets a more modern looking front light. Both bikes get black engines, new silencers, a new set of clocks, a new tail light and new indicators. Optional ABS is not as modern as the competition but it's more than adequate.
