The Sport 1200S is a throwback machine that recreated the style and presence of the MV 750 Sport. The Magni hand crafted chrome-moly frame with right-side-up Ceriani forks and Brembo brakes and a pair of Showa shocks at the rear. The engine breathes through a set of signature black curved four-into-four megaphone exhausts. The alloy swingarm was taken from the Bandit - or, to be more accurate, the GSX 1200 Inazuma which was a retro-styled variation of the Bandit that had a dual-shock rear suspension.
The instruments, wheels, switchgear, master cylinders, carburetors, and airbox were all Suzuki. Dry weight is 430 lbs. The 1156cc powerplant is stock and power at 100 hp/67 lb/ft. The whole kit was finished off with retro flourishes like polished fenders and a sculpted fuel tank painted in the classic red-white-blue scheme made famous by the 750 Sport. The seat was also inspired by the Sport, resplendent in bright red with an upholstered bump stop. This was a strictly solo machine with no provisions for a passenger, just as any proper sport machine ought to be. An excellent and rare model here with just 17,000km from new.
