I think you're mixing up the pre-2007 Bandit 1200's and the current 
Bandit 1250's.

The 1250 is water cooled and fuel-injected.  It's a torque-laden 
sweetheart of a bike to ride.

It's my wife's "big bike" for touring or just having fun going fast.  
For her it's a bit heavy at 550-some pounds;  we did lower the 
suspension so she could get her feet on the ground more firmly; and of 
course, she's added a couple of decorations that sorta embarrass me to 
be seen on it. :)
