  1. Hey all,
    Have the finance all readdy to got and canot decide which naked to buy either the hornet 900 or the new bandit 1250.

    Have ridden the hornet and loved it i am going to organise a ride on the bandit soon but just looking at what people would suggest. it is manily for the commute along the westgate freeway (36km) and sum city stuff . which would be best with fule and general useability???

    thanx all

  2. A quick search will reveal a few long term reports of the bandit.
    All their owners seem to love it.
  3. the hornet over the bandit.....imo the bandit felt too much like a old mans bike (sorry kenny)and just a bit meh in the twisties....the hornet just feels moore aggressive in it's riding position but not so aggressive it's uncomfy :)

    Ride em both and see which fits you better :)
  4. I'd go the bandit... personal choice is king.
  5. I'd go the Bandit on two counts.

    1) An extra 350ccs

    2) It's not a Honda :p
