Suzuki has announced the arrival of the stunning Intruder M1800R cruiser, featuring the most powerful engine in its class and the biggest ever to have powered a Suzuki motorcycle.
The 109 cubic inch (1783cc) V-twin, liquid-cooled powerplant is the heart of the new-for-2006 Intruder M1800R and features DOHC with four valves per cylinder, each of which houses a massive 112mm forged aluminium piston. The digital, dual throttle-valve fuel injection system was developed on Suzuki’s famous GSX-R range of sports machines.
Thumping out a massive 160Nm of torque in the middle of its rev range, the big Intruder’s motor also delivers 125PS of power that cruiser owners crave, together with that classic laid back style. Meanwhile, adjustable suspension gives a smooth and assured ride in all road conditions.
But it’s the beautiful, flowing lines of Suzuki’s biggest cruiser that will really turn heads and make the new Intruder stand out from the crowd.
"The large capacity cruiser market is fiercely competitive," commented Suzuki GB’s sales and marketing director, Nick Palmer, announcing the arrival, "and customers are very particular about their requirements. Big on both power and style, the Intruder M1800R answers those requirements perfectly and, at £8,999 on the road, the bike represents excellent value."
The 2006 Intruder M1800R now heads up Suzuki’s Intruder range, which also includes the M800 and C800 models. It is available in Suzuki dealers throughout the UK now, in limited numbers.
