Suzuki has launched its first ever mass-market cruiser in India. Adopting a strategy similar to the Gixxer, the Intruder has been christened after an iconic halo bike. With a price tag of Rs 98,340 (ex-showroom), the Intruder aims to fulfil the role of a commuter as well as a touring motorcycle. Here is a detailed photo gallery of the Suzuki Intruder –
The low-slung styling, sculpted tank and the vented extensions, triangular headlamp and the exhaust pipe give the Intruder the look of a muscle bike.
The seat is low, spacious and comfortable, and offers good support for the tail bone. A pillion back rest is available as an optional extra.
The headlamp integrates an LED position light, while the tail lamp is fully-LED. The chrome-finished mirrors give it a premium appeal.
The Intruder gets a digital LCD display which displays a clock, shift light and gear indicator apart from the basic functions.
Powering the Intruder is the familiar 155cc single-cylinder engine, delivering 14.6bhp and 14Nm of torque through a five-speed gearbox.
The Intruder rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, with telescopic front forks and a seven-step preload adjustable rear monoshock.
The Intruder rides on tubeless front and radial rear tyre. It gets disc brakes at the front and rear, with a single-channel ABS.
For now, Suzuki has introduced only the carburetted version, and the fuel-injected variant is expected to be launched soon.
