Suzuki Bandit 1200 ‘Colonel Butterscotch’ By ICON 1000

ICON 1000 has made its name taking motorcycles — new ones, along with those that were busted and broken — and retro-futurizing them. That’s just what they’ve done with their latest build, a yellow and white 1999 Suzuki Bandit 1200 that they’ve christened “Colonel Butterscotch.”

The ’99 Suzuki was rather seasoned when ICON first brought it into their magic garage. With beaten up saddlebags and a bulky body, the Bandit wasn’t winning any beauty contests. Yet ICON saw tremendous potential and got to work quickly stripping the bike of plastics and outfitting it with mundane odds and ends sourced from eBay. The Colonel was then given a new GSX-R1100 engine that produces 100 HP, a new performance can to replace the dated muffler, four Mikuni carbs, and free-flowing K&N filtration; the performance of the Bandit 1200 has been enhanced greatly to go along with the renovated new aesthetic. Decaled up and painted a yellowish, caramel hue, ICON’s Colonel Butterscotch is evidence that old things can become new again.
