Suzuki Confirm GSX1250FA Details
& Show Appearance
21st September 2009
Following the official release of images
last week of Suzuki's all-new GSX1250FA, Suzuki GB
is pleased to confirm the final specification for
its new bike, while also delighted to confirm its
attendance at the forthcoming International Motorcycle
& Scooter Show at the NEC in Birmingham from the
26th November to 6th December.
After the launch of the hugely popular GSX650F in
2007, that went on to win the Motorcycle News 'Sports
Tourer of the Year' award, the new 1250 offers all
the advantages of its smaller sibling, with the impressive
mile-munching attributes that the 1255cc engine brings.
Built around a traditional classic tube frame, the
GSX1250FA features rake and trail figures (25.3 degrees
and 104mm) that maintain a great balance between sporty
handling and reassured stability. With 43mm front
forks and the single rear shock absorber featuring
spring pre-load adjustability, the GSX1250FA performs
whether riding solo or pillion.
Featuring Suzuki's proven 1255cc power-plant, the
new model packs a mighty punch, with a flexible engine
that's as happy pulling from low down the rev range
as it is higher up. Equipped with Suzuki's sophisticated
digital fuel injection system, the GSX1250FA offers
superb throttle response and feel with improved range
and reduced emissions. This, combined with highlights
such as large intake (31mm) and exhaust (27mm) valves,
Suzuki's own nickel-phosphorous-silicon-carbide cylinder
coating, to reduce piston friction and a 6-speed gearbox,
make the new 1250 set to be one of the best performing
and versatile machines on the market.
And it's not just performance and agility on offer,
as the GSX1250FA offers digital ABS as standard for
added peace of mind and an adjustable seat. With handy
additions such as a gear position indicator and shift
light as part of the functional and easy to read instrument
cluster, the rider is kept fully-informed.
Suzuki GB marketing manager, George Cheeseman: "Naturally
we are delighted to welcome the GSX1250FA to the range
for 2010. The GSX650F has proven to be extremely popular
and we have no doubt that the 1250 will follow in
its footsteps. While it's too early to talk of a price,
we expect the new bike to be competitive, offering
a versatile and sporty ride that doesn't bust the
