Suzuki launches Intruder at Rs 98000 as a challenger to Bajaj Avenger

Japanese two-wheeler major Suzuki Motorcycle (SMIPL) has launched the baby version of the Intruder at Rs 98340 (ex-showroom, Delhi) to take on the Bajaj Avenger.

Suzuki has launched a brand-new premium motorcycle, the Intruder, for the Indian market, as previously images of a leaked brochure suggested. Suzuki Motorcycles India's research says that there is pretty good demand for affordable 150 cc cruisers and hence, the Intruder saw the light of the day. Not to be mistaken with the Intruder M1800, which is a 1,800 cc behemoth, this one is a 155 cc model, which uses the same engine and underpinnings as the highly popular Suzuki Gixxer. In addition to that, the new bike has a raised handlebar and forward-set footpegs for a comfortable cruiser-type riding posture. The fuel tank gets massive shrouds to add muscle and there are a lot of body panels on the side and at the rear as well.

The Intruder 150 is powered by the same 155cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that already propels the Gixxer series. The bike features a new striking, modern cruiser design which is based on Suzuki's full-size cruiser, the Intruder 800 and Intruder 1800. The bike has a five-speed gearbox and churns out 14.8PS at 8,000rpm, and a peak torque of 14Nm at 6,000rpm. The gear ratios are different and the intake and the air box are bigger in size when compared to the Gixxer. Thanks to the body panels and the changes in the engine, the Intruder weighs 8 kg more than the Gixxer at 148 kg.

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".
