I've owned a few that were severe disappointments. Of the recent ones, the Bandit 1250S was a surprise. The previous 1200 Bandit fitted me like a glove, but the 1250S was incredibly uncomfortable. They are very similar setups, and I have no idea why they feel so different. I tried lowered pegs, bar risers, different bars, screens and seats but couldn't get it sorted, so after 17,000km in 5 months I sold it. Absolutely lovely engine and so on, but very cramped for me (thin and 5'11") and my pillions hated it.
