The Suzuki GSX650F is a sport touring motorcycle made by Suzuki. It is essentially an updated Bandit, filling the void of the retired Katana.

The 656 cc liquid-cooled engine has just over 80 hp (60 kW) and a 12,500 rpm redline. The Transmission is 6-speed with a chain drive.

ABS brakes were added as standard equipment in 2009 for Canada.

Australian LAMS variant[edit]

In Australia[2] and New Zealand,[3] the Suzuki GSX650 is available in an "FU" model to comply with the LAMS (Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme) requirements. This is achieved by shipping a modified ECM (Engine Control Module) that has most of the upper band of available engine revs mapped to lower power output. The model is road-distinguishable by a grey F rather than a solid red F near the number 650 on the fairing.
