2008 Suzuki 1250 Grand Touring
Suzuki GB has announced the final specification and pricing for the new Bandit 1250 Grand Touring, which is due to hit dealers later this month (January 2008).
Based on the hugely popular Bandit 1250SA, the new Grand Touring model features a large capacity luggage system, full-fairing and a Garmin Zumo satellite navigation system as standard, offering £1500 worth of extras over the standard ABS equipped model.
With a recommended retail price of just £6,799 the Bandit 1250GT retails for just £1000 more than the base 1250S, bringing exceptional value to the touring sector of the market.
Talking about the new 1250GT, Suzuki sales and marketing director Nick Palmer commented, “We are delighted to be able to bring the 1250GT to market with such a comprehensive specification. The 1200 model proved exceptionally popular, and with the boosted performance and agility of the 1250 combined with the added GT specification, this new model brings a very real alternative to those looking for a serious mile-muncher”.
As well as the very practical top-box and pannier system and additional fairing lowers, Suzukis bespoke Garmin Zumo Sat Nav system features for the first time on the new Bandit. With dedicated Suzuki software that lists all authorised UK dealers and a soon to be launched online resource that enables download of Suzuki waypoints and routes, the new system gives added flexibility by being transferable for car use too.
