not a 919, SV. but for a cheap bike i was looking for either a 919 or a buell for my next one. i think i'll get the buell, i just like the torque of a Vee.

LOL! Welcome and sorry for the horrible luck.
Good luck with whatever you pick.
I find the Buells to be awesome handling!
Not too sure they are worth the $$$ tho.
The 919 gets you more motor (even if it is an I4) for less $$$ - so something to think about.

Eitherway, welcome!

good luck on getting a replacement. someone also decided they wanted my first bike more than I did. I have not ridden a V-Twin but the 919 engine is more torquey than your average inline 4, and from what I understand the Bandit is a monster when it comes to torque but unless they've changed it recently it's only a 5 speed which may have you searching for a gear that's not there.

i'm not doubting you but your 2000 must have had the engie modded. i hung out in the suzuki forums before purchasing the 919

Here's an article from Top Speed that tells when they finally switched to a 6 speed: http://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/...0-ar45660.html

Below are specs for the 06 and 07 Bandit. My neighbor had a Bandit purchased in 06 or 07 and he had a 5 speed transmission. I used to ride a Katana and a popular mod was to take a Bandit engine and transplant it to the Katana. I researched quite a few sites and the Bandit supposedly did not change to a 6 speed tranny until they changed from the 1200 to the 1250

The Suzuki Bandit 1200S has been around a long time and the 2007 version has just been announced. It will offer 100 more cc's, fuel injection, a six-speed transmission, ABS and a number of other small changes. I imagine that it will be a more refined motorcycle but will lose the "scrapper image" that the early air-cooled Bandits have. It will also be more expensive! Used Bandits are the ultimate used bike deal.
