The GSX1250FA is a fully faired sports tourer based on the budget-priced Bandit 1250. It uses the same 1255cc, four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, notable for its smoothness and strong low rev torque, mounted in a simple tubular steel frame. Suspension is by 43mm non-adjustable forks and a rising rate monoshock rear with adjustable spring preload only.
It‘s not completely barren of extras, the bike comes with ABS as standard, seat height adjustment, gear position indicator and a gear change warning that lights as the revs near the red line.
No price has yet been announced for the GSX1250FA, but with the 1250SA, 1250GT and 1250SAZ costing from £6,349 to £6,849, the FA is likely to be around £6,700, making it something of a bargain while prices are rising so rapidly.
