The highly acclaimed Suzuki Intruder M1800R is to make a special appearance this month, as Suzuki GB introduce a limited edition version of the mighty sports cruiser.
Following its launch last year, where the 1783cc brute sold out in a matter of weeks, Suzuki GB have secured a limited run of the iconic model, featuring a special edition blue colour scheme with a retro white stripe.
At its launch, the M1800R was praised for its monstrous power and torque (125PS and 160NM) and sports bike humbling specification, while boasting the largest engine pistons of any passenger car or motorcycle on earth!
Upon announcing the limited edition model, Suzuki GB general manager Steve Callahan commented, “Incredibly the Intruder M1800R has reached cult status after less than a year on sale. Offering a truly unique specification, it crosses the usual boundaries by igniting interest from cruiser and sports bike fans alike. With a recommended retail price of just £9,399 this limited run model is expected to be one of the most sought after cruisers this year”.
Only 75 Intruder M1800R special editions will come to the UK, featuring the Pearl Vigour Blue and Glass Splash White colour scheme.

Now’s The Time
The Second European Driving Licence Directive (2DLD) will come into force in September 2008 and will introduce new elements to motorcycle testing and training.
The new manoeuvres, including the slalom, figure of eight, hazard avoidance and cornering skills, will all be tested during the new off road test which will be held at new super test centres.
Whilst the new elements to the bike test will help riders understand more about the capabilities of their machines, there is concern about the additional expense to take the test, the increased cost of training and the fact that the number of test centres across the country will significantly reduce from the current 260 to approximately 60.
With the prospect of facing longer waiting lists for tests and possibly more expensive training, many would-be motorcyclists are likely to take their test over the next two summers before the new legislation comes into effect.
