The Suzuki Intruder will take on the long standing Bajaj Avenger in India.
Suzuki Motorcycles has launched a new cruiser motorcycle in India, Intruder 150. The company has forayed into the cruiser bike segment with this motorcycle. The design of the Suzuki Intruder takes inspiration from the 1800cc bad boy, the Suzuki Intruder M1800R. While that one costs anything upward of Rs. 16 lakhs, this everyday commuter cruiser has been priced at Rs. 98,340/- ex-showroom, Delhi. The design is characterised by flowing character lines, big-bike like shrouds, twin exhaust, low and long styling, with a long wheelbase, and a low seat. The design is sure going to be the most attractive point about this motorcycle.
The Suzuki Intruder is powered by a 155cc single cylinder engine that develops 14 BHP and 14 Nm. It is mated to a 6-speed transmission and has a kerb weight of 148 kgs. Fuel efficiency stands at 44 kmpl for this cool looking cruiser motorcycle. It is available in two colours – Metallic Oort/Metallic Matt Black, and Glass Sparkle Black/Metallic Matt Titanium Silver
Speaking at the launch, Mr. Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director, SMIPL said, “The birth of Intruder in 1985 gave the world – a modern cruiser. Today, Suzuki is proud to bring the same Intruder lineage, revered worldwide for its unique styling and performance to India. We are committed to offering our young customers new premium products that are high on quality and technology, yet retain the inherent sportiness and youthfulness of the brand Suzuki.”
Mr Sajeev Rajasekharan, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing, SMIPL said, “The cruiser market in India has been on the path of continuous growth for the last few years. As a modern cruiser, the new INTRUDER offers riders a blend of premium appeal and distinctive-style. With its futuristic features like ABS, the new Intruder fulfills your daily commuting needs, while its great road-handling capabilities make the weekend ride with your brotherhood of bikers enjoyable and exciting as well.”
