A textbook case of why you should not judge a book by its cover. I had my doubts about the Suzuki Intruder the first time I saw the spy shots - it looked like a muscle bike which had skipped every single leg-day at the gym. But in the flesh, boy does it look amazing!
Having burnt its fingers in the mass-market motorcycle segment, Suzuki has now decided to focus only on scooters and premium motorcycles. And its first product under this strategy is the Suzuki Intruder. The nomenclature is similar to what the Gixxer follows - the name of a halo product adopted for a smaller commuter bike. While it might look all muscular and brawny, it is based the on humble 155cc single-cylinder platform of the Gixxer. The Intruder draws inspiration from its namesake, the Intruder M1800, which should work for its target audience – the urban youth. After all, we love motorcycles that scream for attention, don’t we?
