DESIGNING THE SUZUKI' FATMILE'

The Bandit 1250-based 'FatMile' was designed using what the Japanese call Senpai-Kohei, where a young designer with new and fresh ideas is brought together to work with an experienced designer who will guide and direct them. For the FatMile designer Daniel Händler teamed up with legendary Suzuki designer Hans A. Muth, architect of the iconic Suzuki Katana.

The bike was initially built for the Glemseck 101 festival in Germany; one of the biggest café racer gatherings in Europe. Since then it has done the rounds at Intermot, EICMA and Motorcycle Live.

To stay true to the Senpai-Kohei design principle, Suzuki deliberately opted to buck the obvious trend of working with a big design studio or well-known customiser, instead putting its faith in Händler to steer the project with Muth overseeing the process.

“Of course we took a certain risk with this decision,” admits Gerald Steinmann of Suzuki Europe. “When you hire an established design agency or world-famous custom builder hardly anyone will come out with criticism. But we consciously took this different approach and chose a solution in the Japanese tradition. Looking at the FatMile now I am convinced we did the right thing.”

A number of donor bikes were considered for the project, with the Bandit 1250 eventually becoming the starting point.

“We looked at a number of options,” Händler explains. “But, along with the GSX-R, the Bandit series is an iconic series for Suzuki, so this is why we chose it.”

With Händler bringing the innovation and fresh approach, responsibility fell to Muth to guide him on his ideas, designs, concepts and finally implementation when it came to building the FatMile. Muth also had an eye on preserving the Suzuki design identity.

Händler continued, “In this project Mr. Muth was an extremely good tutor for me. At the beginning of our cooperation we shut ourselves away for three days to only talk and outline the FatMile project. That was enormously motivating and instructive for me.”

Muth added, “Mr. Händler is full of good thoughts and ideas. Sometimes I had to remind him to consider the limits of real implementation at early draft stages, but we worked in good harmony. I think that together we have created a very good machine.”

The Suzuki FatMile uses the 1255cc motor from the Bandit mated to custom Cobra Urban Killer exhausts. Swingarm is standard Bandit but the frame has a modified rear subframe and seat unit with a custom seat to go with the new Paaschburg & Wunderlich headlight, GFK front fender and custom paint scheme.

Front forks are 2012-2016 GSX-R1000 which, at 5cm shorter than Bandit forks lower the front end of the bike. Front brake calipers are Brembo monobloc from the same GSX-R1000 with GSX-R discs too. Rear stopping power comes from a four-pot Nissin caliper and B-King disc. The bike is fitted with Spiegler brake lines.

Suzuki has launched a new summer incentive, rewarding anyone that takes a test ride on selected models with £500 off the RRP when they go on to purchase. The offer runs in conjunction with all current campaigns, and across most of Suzuki’s on-road range.

Running from 1 August to 9 September, the incentive applies to both the GSX-R1000 and range-topping GSX-R1000R, the GSX-S1000F, GSX-S1000, and GSX-S750, both variants of the V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 1000, plus the SV650X and the new-for-2019 KATANA.

The offer also runs alongside the current HP and PCP promotions. This includes both the 0% APR finance offer on the GSX-R1000R, as well as Suzuki’s low rate finance campaign, which allows customers to choose from 2, 3 or 4 years with an APR to match.

Finally if choosing a V-Strom, customers will also benefit from £500 worth of free accessories, making Suzuki’s adventure range a truly tempting proposition.

Suzuki GB head of motorcycles, Jonathan Martin, commented, “Summer’s in full swing, but for those still in the process of selecting a new bike for the season, this offer is an added sweetener alongside our current offers, that makes riding a new Suzuki this summer a tempting and viable option”

0% APR finance available on 2018 models of GSX-R1000R/RZLow rate finance available on GSX-S1000F, GSX-S1000, GSX-S750, Vstrom 650 & V-Strom 1000. Minimum Deposit £1,000.

The story of the SV650

The SV650 was first introduced in 1999 as an affordable-but-fun middleweight, available either naked or half-faired. No one, not even Suzuki, could have imagined the cult appeal the bike would develop, as it appealed to everyone from commuters to riders looking for a capable tool for a weekend blast, and now fills race grids up and down the country. 20 years on, we take a look back at the history of one of the biggest overachievers in motorcycling.

The naked version of the SV650 cost just £3,999 when it was launched back in 1999, with the S model a mere £300 more. Both bikes immediately found favour with the motorcycling public, with a combined 2,549 sold in the first year and 2,939 the following year.

The SV was designed to be the answer to many people’s prayers; a robust, reliable, but characterful V-twin middleweight, suited to a range of riders and uses.

It was affordable and did everything it needed to. But it did it better than its rivals, with nimble, agile handling more akin to more expensive, sportier machines, and an engine that has gone down in motorcycle folklore. MCN referred to it as a ‘straightforward middleweight V-twin all-rounder which proves you don’t have to be boring to be practical’. It found a niche and it excelled.

It was comfortable as well, with a plush seat and easy-going ergonomics – especially the naked version. It could take a pillion too. And there was a great range of accessories, which meant the SV could be taken touring across the continent, or, with the fitment of fairing lowers, a pillion seat cowl, and a racy exhaust, become a mini V-twin weapon between the hedges.

Such a weapon in fact, that in club racing, the SV650 was the bike to be on when it came to the twin classes. As people sought more affordable ways of going racing, the SV filled Minitwin grids up and down the country, which boasted tighter regulations than other classes of racing. Frames couldn’t be modified, nothing could be done to the engine, and even things like the forks had to remain standard. However, the basic package from Hamamatsu was far greater than the sum of its parts, and the bikes posted impressive lap times around circuits like Donington Park, Brands Hatch, and Cadwell Park.

2003 saw the introduction of the second generation SV650. The new bike boasted an all-new cast aluminium frame, new swingarm and new exhaust. It also made the switch to fuel injection from carburettors. It got a power hike, too, taking peak power up to over 73bhp, while peak torque increased to 47.2lb-ft.

And it continued to fly out of the showrooms too. 2,266 were sold when the new bikes were introduced, as new riders, commuters, and racers alike sought them out.

In 2007 new twin-plug heads were introduced to improve emissions, but it was the last update before the naked SV650 was superseded by the SFV650, which was launched in 2009.

The SFV650 was launched in Fuerteventura to widespread praise. MCN rated the upgraded engine five out of five, and commended the new bike, writing “the old SV650 was a good bike and to be honest Suzuki didn’t have to do much to make it a great bike once more. But they have gone one better and given us an excellent bike.”

Changes to the camshaft profiles and valve lift, a 10% increase in crankshaft inertia, newly staggered intake and exhaust tract lengths, and a new exhaust made it possible to boost low-rpm and midrange power, without sacrificing top-end output. There were also new valve springs, and while the bore and stroke remained the same from the older SV650, the bore was plated with Suzuki’s race-proven nickel-phosphorus-silicon-carbide coating. It also benefited from new iridium spark plugs.

The most striking difference was how the new bike differed visually from the SV. The classic styling made way for more modern lines, and a new steel trellis frame replaced the aluminium frame of the outgoing SV650.

In classes where limited modifications were permitted, the SV650S continued its dominance of club racing grids, with it’s clip-ons and removable rear subframe. But in the more relaxed Supertwin classes, the SFV650 was carving a name for itself.

JHS Racing in particular were championing the way with the SFV, turning out an exquisite example dressed in GSX-R600 fairings, that turned heads when on display at Motorcycle Live.

The preparation put into the bike was essentially the same that goes into a superbike. The JHS SFVs used the original crankshaft, but got new con-rods, pistons, valves and valve springs. It retained the standard ECU, but with some parameters changed and some sensor eliminators, to extract every ounce of power. This bike didn’t have to do thousands of miles between services.

“The SFV650 boasts even more potential than the SV for racing,” James Holland from JHS Racing said at the time. “It’s the engine we like the most, as the nickel-phosphorus-silicon-carbide coating in the bores allows us to run higher tolerances with our pistons and rings.”

But for 2016 the naked SV returned to the range, doing everything it did in 1999, only better. It’s more powerful and lighter than the SFV650, with clean, classic styling to appeal to a variety of riders. It boasts some more tech too, with a one-push, easy-start system and Suzuki’s low-rpm assist function that makes it incredibly difficult to stall the bike when pulling away. On its launch in northern Spain it was praised for its handling, with Bike Social writing, “The Suzuki’s chassis is mint. It turns well, holds a line, and leans over till the long hero blobs and exhaust are dragging if you want.”

Two years later and the SV650X joined the lineup alongside the standard SV, while the S made way. It offered something new for SV customers, sporting café racer-inspired styling with a bikini fairing, dropped bars, and ribbed seat, plus a retro-style livery.

The SV650 remains a model that does far more than it should, better than it should. When the first SV650 rolled off the production line in the late 90s, no one would have believed that it would find favour with so many riders looking for so many different things, and go on to fill club racing grids and tackle the Isle of Man TT. It really is one of motorcycling’s biggest overachievers.

SUZUKI ENHANCES GSX-R 0%REPRESENTATIVE FINANCE OFFER

Suzuki has announced an enhanced 0% APR Representative finance offer on the award-winning and race-proven GSX-R1000R plus the entry-level GSX-R125, available until the end of September 2019. There’s also a new £250 Suzuki deposit contribution on the GSX-R125.

Available with a minimum deposit of £1,000 on the range-topping GSX-R1000R, customers can ensure they’re choosing a deal that best suits their personal circumstances, and opt for either a Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) or Hire Purchase (HP) agreement.

Suzuki’s 0% APR Representative offer also extends to the learner-friendly GSX-R125, which is available with a minimum deposit of £750, £250 of which comes as a Suzuki deposit contribution, meaning buyers need only £500 deposit.

The GSX-R1000R uses a host of MotoGP-derived technology, from a clever variable valve timing system that allows it to produce both low-down and midrange torque and impressive top-end power, to a comprehensive suite of performance-boosting electronics that includes an IMU-governed, 10-mode traction control system, launch control, quickshifter and auto-blipper, and cornering ABS.

The GSX-R125 set new benchmarks when it was launched in 2017, coming into the 125 sports bike market with the best power-to-weight ratio. It boasts an LCD dash, LED lighting, keyless ignition, and Suzuki’s easy-start system.

SUZUKI MOTOGP-INSPIREDARAI CHASER-X AVAILABLE

Suzuki and Arai have joined forces to create a Team Suzuki Ecstar, MotoGP-inspired Chaser-X limited edition helmet, which comes with an RRP of £550 and is available now through authorised Suzuki dealerships or online.

The helmet gets a striking blue, white, and yellow design with bold Suzuki lettering, reminiscent of the firm’s GSX-RR MotoGP racer, and is ACU Gold Standard certified. It also uses a double d-ring chin strap fastener, Arai’s new shield latch system, and includes liner speaker pockets. 

SUZUKI SET FOR INAUGURAL ADVENTURE BIKE RIDER FESTIVAL

Suzuki will showcase its adventure and off-road ranges at the inaugural Adventure Bike Rider Festival, which takes place from 12-14 July at the Ragley Hall Estate in Warwickshire, with visitors also able to enjoy test rides on many of the models on display.

The range-topping V-Strom 1000XT – which features a 1037cc V-twin engine packed with low-down torque and a broad midrange, plus a two-mode traction control system and intelligent cornering ABS – will be displayed alongside the standard V-Strom 1000. The cult-favourite V-Strom 650 will also be on display, side-by-side with the more off-road-focussed V-Strom 650XT, which swaps cast wheels for lightweight spoked options, and gets hand guards and lower cowling as standard. Both models use Suzuki’s characterful and famed 645cc V-twin engine, and get traction control and low RPM assist.

Demonstrating the V-Strom’s adventure-potential is the Bike to Japan V-Strom 1000, which was ridden from the UK all the way back to the Suzuki factory in Hamamatsu, Japan in 2014.

Proving big adventures can come in small packages is the V-Strom 250. The A2 licence-friendly machine uses a flexible parallel twin engine, and includes full luggage among its range of accessories, and will be on display along with its larger capacity siblings.

Further highlighting the Japanese brand’s off-road prowess is the RM-Z450 motocross machine and KingQuad 750 ATV, both of which will be present on the Suzuki stand, while the head-turning new KATANA will nod to the firm’s street bike range.

Visitors to the festival can also sample the entire V-Strom range for themselves, with test rides available over the course of the event. The KATANA – an evolution of the iconic 1981 machine that uses a 150hp version of the legendary GSX-R1000 K5 engine, housed in a lightweight aluminium chassis and tamed with a three-mode traction control system – will also be available for demo rides.

Both the V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 1000, plus the XT and GT variants of both models, are now available as part of the offer. The award-winning V-Strom 650 uses Suzuki’s famed 645cc V-twin engine and features a two-stage traction control system (which can be turned off), plus easy-start and low rpm assist. Meanwhile the range-topping V-Strom 1000X GT comes fully-equipped with aluminium top box and panniers, plus tapered handlebar and lightweight spoke wheels.

The SV650X – the café racer-inspired version of the equally-popular SV650 – is now part of the offer, along with the GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F, GSX-S750 and learner-friendly GSX-S125, plus the Address scooter.

TEAM GB BMX STAR DECLAN BROOKS PASSES MOTORCYCLE TEST

Team GB athlete, freestyle BMX star, and Olympic hopeful Declan Brooks has swapped pedal power for horsepower, passing his motorcycle test using Suzuki’s SV650.

Brooks – who finished third in the FISE Chengdu BMX World Cup event in China last November – passed his CBT last year, as he took the first steps into gaining his motorcycle licence. Now, with nearly a year’s worth of experience under his belt, the 21-year-old has passed both his module one and module two assessments, thanks to Shires Motorcycle Training, and can finally remove the L-plates as spring arrives.

Declan Brooks, “I’m used to feeling nervous ahead of world championship competition, but it didn’t stop the apprehension for each part of the test, so it was a huge relief to be told I’d passed. I really enjoyed learning, doing my CBT, and getting some miles in on the GSX-S125 last year, but I was keen to keep going and go through my full test. I definitely enjoyed having more power on tap and a bigger bike with the SV, too. This has come at the perfect time as well; it’ll not be long until the clocks change and the weather warms up, and I’m now excited to get on the road and plan some rides this coming summer.

Brooks is currently competing in world championship around the globe, with the aim of representing Team GB at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the first time freestyle BMX will be included in the games. He is also from a motorcycling family and background, his father racing before Declan got his first taste of a motocross bike at four.

He added, “I think having a bicycle and two-wheeled background definitely helped. Even though there are obviously massive differences, you’ve got a feel for balance, how to use your weight, things like that. My dad will be pleased too!

Riding a GSX-S125 to pass his CBT and gain experience, Brooks will now use Suzuki’s user-friendly SV650. However, due to his age, the 74bhp machine uses a restricted ECU to bring it down to the 47bhp limit, available through authorised Suzuki dealerships.

SUZUKI CONFIRMS PRICING ON NEW COMMUTER MODELS

Suzuki has confirmed pricing for its new Address 110 and Inazuma 250F models, with the economical commuter-targeted machines priced at £1,799 and £3,999 respectively.

The Address 110 defines urban practicality, with its impressive 145MPG* figure, a kerb mass of just 97kg, and over 20 litres of under-seat storage. The stylish new scooter also boasts cutaway footboards, making it easy to stop around town, a rear brake locking system for use when parked, and an ignition cover which aids in security.

Performance comes from a new fuel injection system and redesigned piston skirts, while cast aluminium wheels with hollow cores boost handling capabilities.

The new scooter comes with an RRP of £1,799 while a number of optional accessories are also available, including a top box, hand guards, and tall windscreen.

The Inazuma 250F joins Suzuki´s on-road range for 2015, following the success of the naked Inazuma 250 launched at Motorcycle Live 2012.

The new F variant adds a fairing and screen for improved weather protection on longer journeys, all wrapped around an economical 248cc parallel twin capable of 85MPG* while also delivering enough punch for a spirited ride out of town.

The Inazuma 250F is available with an RRP of £3,999. Both the Address 110 and Inazuma 250F are expected in dealers in March.

SUZUKI V-STROM 650XT NOW IN DEALERS

Suzuki´s new V-Strom 650XT is now available in dealerships nationwide, with pricing confirmed at £7,499.

Based on the popular V-Strom 650, which has been the best-selling mid-capacity dual-purpose motorcycle over the last decade, the new XT version boasts lightweight DID wire spoke rims, designed to improve performance on unpaved roads, while a new beak takes design cues from the V-Strom 1000 and iconic DR Big and improves airflow to the radiator.

Hand guards, aluminium sump protector and engine bars complete the look and add to the V-Strom 650XT´s rugged presence.

Suzuki GB Marketing Manager Rob Cooper commented, “The XT version of the popular V-Strom 650 builds on the original bike´s proven platform as a comfortable and capable adventure-tourer, but adds new levels of practicality with the wire wheels and other added extras, helping maintain the V-Strom´s position as the best dual-purpose machine in this sector of the market.”

The V-Strom 650XT is available in authorised Suzuki dealers now with an RRP of £7,499. Additional accessories, including aluminium luggage and Vario touring screen, are also available.
