The Suzuki M1800R is one of the highest selling premium cruisers in India. Its overall design, body proportions, practicality and its price makes it a value for money buy. This bike was so successful in India that the company launched an 800cc version of it.
The Intruder offers immense road presence and gets chrome on most parts. The Intruder comes with a broad pulled-back chrome handlebar and retro-style tinted mirrors. The low-slung cruiser style saddle is wide and has a somewhat taller, still comfy pillion seat.
The M1800 aka ‘Intruder’ is powered by 1783cc V-Twin engine that produces 127bhp and maximum torque of 160Nm. The engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox that transfers power to the rear wheel through a shaft drive. This engine offers immense low end torque, making it very difficult for someone who is new to the world of premium cruisers. Also the engine is electronically limited as it kept breaking the gearbox. It features a 240mm section rear tyre which is the widest of all and is one of the USP of the motorcycle.
The Suzuki Intruder is sold in India with only one colour option – Glass Sparkle Black. It competes with the Triumph Storm, Harley-Davidson Fat Boy and Honda VT 1200CX.
