The Suzuki GSF400 is a motorcycle produced by Suzuki from 1991 to 1993.

In the late Eighties. the race towards ever greater technical refinement and over equipped motorcycles ended and the pendulum once again swung back to simple-stripped down machines. The Suzuki Bandit was at the forefront.

Sober but Stylish[edit]

Without fenders, plastic lockers, an aluminum backbone frame or a wild color scheme, the Bandit is sober bur still stylish. Initially designed solely for the Japanese market, where the most popular categories are 250 and 400cc, the Bandit proved so successful that Suzuki lost no time in trying it out on European and US buyers.

Aggressive Style[edit]

Even though the 400cc class is not particularly fashionable, the Bandit proved an immediate success with its pure and aggressive style. The Bandit's temperament is as individual as its style. Small and compact, its a true sports machine that only needs a good mountain track or race track to demonstrate its abilities, The motor runs smoothly up to 14,000 rpm with a feather on the throttle. but it's necessary to make full use of the six-speed gearbox to keep the machine revving properly. Light, precise, and sure footed with its fat rear 4.00x17 tire, the Bandit is a grownup's toy whose price remains affordable in comparison with the competition. Its one of the few genuine sports bikes in its category.
