I had the use of a Suzuki 250 Bandit for a month. It was one of those little cc fast bikes. 249cc Parallel 4 cylinder that would rev to 14,500 RPM. About 45 HP from 249cc. It would show 120 MPH on speedo. But if you babied for gas mileage it would give about 85 MPG.

I was in Kaiserslaturn Germany and almost bought it. Wish I did.
Looked sort of like this one, different fairing.

In the Asian markets Suzuki made some 175cc fours.

That Honda 350 Four had a Bore and Stroke of 47mm X 50mm and had 35 HP.

The Suzuki Bandit 250 Four had a Bore and Stroke of 49mm X 33mm and had 45 HP.

In my opinion, I think a Suzuki Bandit 250 would BEAT the snot out of my Burgman 650 in a race, ANY RACE. ;)

Wow four pistons the size of shot glasses …. imagine all that and the valves running at 14,500 RPM…. a Swiss Watch with a Throttle.
At 14,500 RPM that piston is hitting top dead center 242 times PER SECOND. The Sparkplug is firing the fuel mix 121 every second.
