Suzuki Bandit. I thought it was a 400cc but I’m told it’s the 250cc model.
If Suzuki made this available today, Ninja 250 and Hyosung GT250 sales would halve overnight.

Saw this on Luke Inazuma Cafe racers blog a couple of weeks ago and have been meaning to blog it but when I went looking for it today, found it 4 pages back and it took me ages to get there because I kept getting distracted by all the cool stuff on the blog. Check it out when you have a week off!
The Bike - Robber Speed
This beautiful modern cafe racer is based on a Suzuki Bandit 1200. Built a number of years ago by probably my favourite Japanese custom shop - Double Motor Works in Nagano.
The engine is a ‘91 GSX-R1100 bored to 1216 cc with high compression pistons and completed with a camshaft from Yoshimura. Exhaust ducts were polished, bigger valves and crank rebalanced. The chassis has received a GSX-R1000 front end and a swingarm lengthened by 30 mm. The braking is a Brembo caliper on new petal discs.
I’d go broke from doing track days on this bike.
