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 bank."
