Most Powerful Bikes
Suzuki Bandit 600
In any objective test between the machines on this list, the Bandit 600 would probably come near the bottom. Its slower than most of them. It wont handle as well as any of the sports bikes. It cant even really offer the same practicality, thanks to the lack of fairing. But when we look back in decades to come, the Bandit is one of the few machines that can truly claim to have spawned enough imitators that a class would be named after it ? for a long while, any naked, standard bike couldnt avoid being called a Banditrival. And then theres the sheer breadth of its appeal. Sensible, hivisjacketed, greyhaired riders loved them. But so did newbies. And then there were the camotrousered, Simpsonhelmeted wheelie fans that were nothing without their Renthalbarred Bandits. Surely the Bandit name, and such a versatile bike, is overdue a comeback?
