Still ahead of the curve Edgy new styling keeps the Bandit 650 far out in front of the competition. The sharp new design is a reection of the future, headlined by sleeker headlights, newly styled frame covers, a slimmer tail light, newly shaped mu!er ends and, on the half-faired Bandit 650S, a newly styled cowling. Since a well-designed engine is a thing of beauty to a motorcycle enthusiast, the symmetrical, centre-cam-drive engine has a striking black nish and is exposed for ready admiration. Newly designed instrumentation promotes legibility for easy riding and is incorporated into a single sleek housing. An analogue tachometer is complemented by an LCD digital speedometer and by an LCD fuel gauge and clock. Other indications include lamps for neutral position, oil pressure, high beam, and water temperature and, for extra rider condence, a gear-position indicator. On the naked Bandit 650, the circular shape of the halogen multireector headlight on earlier models has been replaced with an edgier, more futuristic shape. A sculpted cover between the steering head and fuel tank forms part of a sporty prole. On the half-faired Bandit 650S an aerodynamically e"cient half-fairing incorporates stacked high- and low-beam multi-reector headlights. The half-fairing also incorporates handy left- and right-hand storage bays for small items. Plus, newly designed rearview mirrors and turn-signal lights combine great style with fu nction.
