2000 Bandit 600S><br /><b>2000 Bandit 600S</div>
<p>In Europe, Suzuki’s Bandit 600 has been a top seller for several years.  Available in two versions, the naked (600) and bikini fairing (600S), this bike has filled a large nitch with its nimble handling and good looks, coupled with adequate in-town engine performance and low price.<br />
<br />
The U.S. market benefits from this popularity overseas by receiving the significantly revised 2000 Bandit 600S.  A new frame, with longer wheelbase and reduced rake and trail provides improved straight-line stability, yet retains light and responsive steering.  Additional weight over the front wheel increases rider control.<br />
<br />
The new Bandit also receives improved brakes and larger tires, as well as improved suspension performance.<br />
<br />
In the engine department, the bullet-proof air cooled engine has improved low end throttle response and low-to-midrange power due to new carburetors and a throttle position sensor.<br />
<br />
Most no	tably, the faired version has an entirely new and radical design incorporating greater wind protection and advanced dual headlights.<br />
<br />
The new Bandits also have slightly redesigned seating positions for increased rider comfort.<br />
<br />
Overall, the new Bandits represent a great bargain on a reliable, fun motorcycle.  In the U.S., only the faired GSF 600S is available at an MSRP of $5,799.00.<br />
