Both good bikes, Bandit 1250 has much stronger bottom end. FZ1 is a reworked R1, but kinda boring. Krukov is right, Ninja 1000 might be a good compromise

I have a mint '07 Black 1250S, 6K miles, I might be talked into parting with..Very underrated bike.

Bandit = Pig.
FZ1 = Guinea Pig.
ZRX = Fun Pig.
Z1000 = Fun Guinea Pig.

If it was me asking your quesstion, FZ1 or Bandit, I'd go here .... https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/mcy/6177699645.html



But if I just was after a new-to-me bike that was going to be a ton of fun for a small payout - https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/mcy/6192676451.html
