Had a curiser style bike for several years. I just didn't like the "laid back" riding position. The Bandit allows for a heads up riding position without hunching over the gas tank. I have the naked style. I added a National Cylce F-16 wind screen that really adds to the looks. I also have bar end rearview mirrors which I highly recommend. It gives a great view of what's coming up behind. This is a great bike at a great price.

I'm 46 and I hadn't riden a bike in about 13 years and only rode a 250cc bike. I really like cruisers but, after spending a lot of time just sitting on them, I found that long trips could be a problem. I've had sugery on my lower back and although I'm fine nowb, sitting is my weak point. I found the position on the Bandit with my legs under me rather than out in front is a very happy position for my back. With only 350 mile so far I have no complaints. This is a very smooth and powerful bike. I bought it new this year, (05 but it's a 2003). People who ride say "Wow, that thing will pop wheelies". Well not for me, I'll keep 2 wheels down. I wanted plenty of power for 2 and gas mileage for weekend trips, 46mpg so far. I like the upright position which I improved with a riser kit. I'll update in the future.

While the Bandit isn't considered cutting edge by anyone, it encompasses characteristics that many motorcycle owners look for. The engine is a 1200cc air/oil cooled inline 4 cylinder which provides great power right up until about 2000 rpm before it's redline when the power surge begins to flatten out. It's mini fairing (on S versions) and exposed engine provide a handsome profile without looking like some sort of racer wannabe. The wide seat an semi-upright seating beg the rider to stay for a while, unlike it's supersport siblings. Value is a virtue of the Bandit as well. With literbike performance, graceful handling right up to 95% of it's limits, the Bandit is a steal. Try and find specs that equal the Bandit for less, you'll be looking for quite some time. Do yourself a favor and turn your cheek to the "next cool this" and the "new fangled that" and try a machine that gets it done for less. Wave when you pass the slug crippled over on his CB-GSXR-6XX.
