Suzuki Bandit 600 is one of the best middle sport-bike from Suzuki Motorcycles, Before I know about "Suzuki Bandit 600", the Bandit 400 is more popular in my country. Maybe the price of 400cc is cheaper than Suzuki Bandit 600 series with 600cc of engine capacity. If you never know about this bike, I will tell you, I like the muffler / exhaust of Bandit sounds, it's awesome motorcycles sound, it's like super motorcycles with 1000cc capacity, well it's just my opinion, but today, Bandit 600 is more interesting for me than Bandit 400, why? Guys.. you know that usually, the class of motorcycles begin from 150cc, 250cc, 600cc and then 1000cc, so.. this is my reason why Suzuki bandit 600 is more interesting than 400cc series.
