Suzuki GSX1250F Bike Overview
There is no denying that the Suzuki GSX1250F is a well priced, economic and good looking bike. This 1250cc all-rounder is great to ride whether you are using it for the daily commute or for longer touring trips and despite its sportier look; it is comfortable for both rider and pillion as well.
Weighing in at 275kg this is a heavy bike and when you first begin to ride it, the weight is definitely something you notice but once it gets going there s little to complain about. The low seat and raised bars offer a practical riding position and although the suspension could be better, as long as you aren’t planning on any off-road journeys you should find the set-up more than suitable.
The fuel economy is also something worth noting, even when doing low speeds and plenty of stop and start for city riding, you will get a fair amount for your money here. The engine is perhaps more comfortable at low and mid-range speeds and you do tend to notice the engine’s limitations as you take it up to the top end of the rev range but even on the motorway you should find it more then capable.
Equipment-wise there isn’t much to write home about although you get what you might expect for a bike which costs £7k new; adjustable seat height, fuel gauge, twin trip meters and a centre stand all being fitted as standard and plenty of additional accessories available for purchase if you want to take things up a notch as well.

It's sexy to look at.
No need. All good.
I have a factory seat and find it to be good. Not the comfiest but still good for lengthy journeys.
The build quality of the engine is solid. Never given me any issues other than slight clutch rattle (quite common with Suzuki).
Good brakes, extremely responsive.
Nice smooth ride, plenty of pull. Overall a great ride.
Plenty of power when needed.
Relatively cheap. Tank range of approx 200 miles depending on how you ride.
Price including all the luggage, less than £8k when I bought it new. Low revving, torquey motor. Good fuel economy. Comfortable. A natural progression after owning 600 and 650 bandits. It's a bit outdated now but does everything that it says on the tine. A good, relaxed ride that is still capable of being fun around the twisty bits. The torque of the motor also means that you are not forever swapping cogs. On the twistys I just leave it in 3rd and have fun.
Old design means it's a bit on the heavy side compared to more modern machinery. That said, once it's moving it's no problem
Big, torquey motor makes for effortless riding, getting me out of trouble if I find myself in the wrong gear. Quick enough to out accelerate most non-supercar cages
Built to a price and it shows sometimes. Never let me down in the 2 years that I've owned it
ABS as standard, can't comment on its effectiveness as I've never had to use it. Normal braking it sood.
All good, brilliant all round bike
Hides its weight well, as easy to flick around as a sports bike, yet very stable in straight lines.
Loads of torque at usable road speeds
Just drives on and on. Bulletproof engine.
Good, progressive and effective
It is so easy to ride, just brilliant
Make the fairing easier to remove.
I prefer this to the blackbird I owned previously.
More power than you'll ever need.
Quite thirsty, low 30s to the gallon.
Fantastic, reliable,easy to ride. Only issuing I have is checking coolant level & topping up. Fairing bolts are a faff and they all seem to be different sizes & Lengths.
Light and easy to handle for a rider of advancing years.
An attachment of some sort for carrying a bag or other luggage facility would be an advantage.
Smooth and handles quite well. Corners well considering the light weight.
Plenty of power for a small bike aided by the six speed gearbox. No vibration throughout the engine speed range.
Fuel consumption low at well above 100 miles per gallon if ridden sensibly. Insurance cost satisfactory but I have no comparison as this is the first bike that I have owned for over fifty years.
Generally good although some components seem to be only just adequate in strength. Over 4000 miles in the first year and no problems.
Good stopping power and the front brake is especially sharp.
Fitting an aftermarket can as the original was disgustingly huge. Oh, & quiet.
The weight. Very heavy.
Smooth power delivery. Pulls well. I was wary of cornering, but having done a brief session around Donington Park she handled brilliantly. Even had my knee down.
Very torquey, pulls well.
This is my 2nd season of ownership. No costs as yet. MPG is better than my previous 2 Fireblades.
Put together very well. Under seat storage is rubbish, cant put my gloves in. 2 helmet holders so that's good.
ABS brakes are good.
