2011 Suzuki GSX1250-FA Features
The GSX1250FA Chassis Features is equipped with a Digital Antilock Brake System (ABS) that monitors wheel speed and matches stopping power to available traction.
New Engine Features
The GSX1250FA is powered by a compact, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 1255cc, DOHC, wet sump engine that has a bore and stroke of 79.0 mm x 64.0 mm. A secondary balancer shaft enhances the engine's smooth operation.
Suzuki Dual Throttle valve (SDTV) fuel injection, featuring 36mm throttle bodies, brings superb response feel, smooth power delivery, improved mileage and reduced emissions. Long-wearing, tough SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) cylinder-bore plating offers increased durability and efficiency. Chrome-nitride piston-ring coating contributes to reduction of friction and tighter cylinder sealing on the GSX1250-FA. Suzuki Idle Speed Control (ISC) helps improve cold starting, reduce cold-start emissions and stabilize engine idle under varying conditions. Effective engine management and emissions control systems together allow the GSX1250-FA to meet the latest emissions regulations and standards. A liquid-cooled oil cooler helps keep the GSX1250-FA engine running cool.
A slick shifting six speed transmission improves acceleration while reducing top gear RPM at highway speeds. The GSX1250FA comes with a hydraulic clutch with coil springs that provides improved lever feel and control.Power is put to the ground via a durable RK GB50GSV Z3 118 link chain.
The GSX1250FA comes with a functional full fairing, housing vertically stacked headlights and is shaped for a neatly integrated impression with the tank and the tailsection.The GSX1250FA features a classic tube-frame chassis, with rake and trail chosen for an excellent balance between sporty handling and highway cruising comfort. 43mm-stanchion-tube front forks offer 5.1 inches of travel. A single rear shock (with 5.4 inches of travel) is preload adjustable so you can tune for when riding with or without passengers.
The GSX1250FA comes with fully floating 310mm dual-disc front brakes with four-piston calipers and a single 240mm rear disc brake with a single-piston caliper.
Long rides are made easy thanks to the comfort-contoured seat found on the GSX1250FA. The seat height can also be adjusted up or down 20mm by flipping over the mounting spacers between the seat and the frame seat rails.
A convenient centerstand is standard equipment on the GSX1250FA. A large capacity 5 gallon fuel tank (4.9 gal. on CA models) provides long operating range in between fill-ups. A comprehensive instrument cluster offers a variety of gauges, including a convenient gear-position indicator and shift light, oil pressure/coolant temperature indicator, fuel injection indicator, ABS indicator, and engine RPM indicator light. Available Suzuki Genuine Accessories for the GSX1250FA include top and side cases, windshield and more.
Please note that ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves, corners, and traffic congestion.
