The 2018 Suzuki Bandit features a trapezoidal LED headlamp, digital instrument cluster and muscular fuel tank with aggressive tank extensions. The bike also gets a single piece seat, centre-set foot pegs and a flat handlebar for a commuterish look. The motorcycle also features an engine cowl to add to the sporty look of the bike.
The 2018 Suzuki Bandit 150 draws power from a 147.3cc liquid-cooled, DOHC, single-cylinder engine that produces 19.2bhp and 14Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine is more powerful and modern than the India-spec Gixxer which produces 14.5bhp and 14Nm of torque.
The new Suzuki Bandit is equipped with telescopic forks at the front and monoshock suspension at the rear. Braking duties are handled by discs at both the ends. Suzuki is not offering ABS even as an option. The Bandit also gets a dual-port exhaust muffler which is slightly redesigned as compared to the Gixxer.
