You can’t break the laws of physics, but the 2016 Suzuki Bandit 1250S ABS shows that you sure can bend them. Its Suzuki fuel-injected four-cylinder engine offers thrilling acceleration in every gear, with a rush of high-rpm performance. For crisp, precise handling on twisty roads, it has balanced suspension systems front and rear. It also features a technically advanced Antilock Braking System (ABS)* that monitors wheel speed, and matches stopping power to available traction.

*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
