The latest additions to the Bandit series feature a newly designed 1,250 cm³ liquid-cooled 4-cylinder DOHC engine. This engine builds on the powerful mid-to low-speed torque sensation and handling delivered by the popular previous oil-cooled engine with even greater dynamic performance and lower noise. In addition to an auxiliary balance shaft and 6-speed transmission that enhance comfort during high speed cruising, these large street bikes also feature ABS as standard equipment to ensure a relaxed riding experience when touring or with a passenger on the back. The combination of a fuel injection system with a large catalyst, the PAIR (Pulsed-AIR) system, and a large-capacity 4-into-1 stainless steel muffler reduce harmful emissions and enhance environmental friendliness.
