A classic that has a built up a massive reputation.
A bit soggy on its suspension.
Old faithful returns with a new jacket, starched braces and a spanking new motor. Still, the same old trusty, reliable bulletproof Bandit

Overall Review

I returned to biking after a number of years and in hindsight (which I know is an exacting science) I definitey picked the best bike for my needs. Well chuffed.

Overall Review

Does exactly what you would expect it to. Inspires confidence, playful if not sparkling and still outperforms most 4-wheelers. Very forgiving.

Strengths

k7 has water cooled FI engine, ABS. Very easy to ride and feels solid. Comfort is okay and insurance is cheap. Inspires confidence, good riding position and fairing is quiet effective.

Weaknesses

Slight fueling snatch at low reves and some vibes at 6000rpm.

Overall Review

Well done Suzuki :)

Strengths

With my very limited ability it makes me look like I'm good on a bike, as a new ish biker it is a lot more forgiving than my vtec vfr800 was.Just enough power to raise a grin,low insurance abs as well.As the headline says can it get any easier than this ? To say I'm very happy with my k7 is an understatement.
