Rider review:
They could see it as soon as I rode my new Suzuki Intruder into town. No other
cruiser looks as custom. No other V-twin sounds this mean.
No other streetbike had ever grabbed their attention like my Intruder. Chrome on
chrome on chrome. From its headlight right down to its 60-spokc wheels, Intruder
is mean, clean and classic.
And underneath Intruders heart-thumping good looks Suzuki packed the leanest 45°
V-twin on the road.
That's what grabbed my soul.
'Cause when I'm riding my Intruder
I become an Intruder. It's
like we were made for each other.
Like we're one single moving part. Man, the difference between my
Intruder and every other bike on
the street is as plain as black
and white.
Another rider review:
I came across this, when looking
for a used bike to get back into riding. I purchased it from its
original lady owner. Maroon, pullback handlebars & one of the rare
things - the snowflake cast alloy wheels. Since the used bike market
was tight, I settled on this one & took the gamble on buying it on
first impression & a test ride. 2 years & 10,000 miles later, it's a
decision I don't regret.
V-twin engine has plenty of get up & go, very good low end take-off.
It is cold blooded though. I do allow it to warm up before taking
off, otherwise it's sluggish.
Nice handling & riding, Shaft drive is smooth.
I got rid of the factory seat, & put a Mustang Regal Duke on it.
Mustang stated it would not fit my year, but if you have the model
with the slightly higher factory back rest, (Mine, has the small
luggage rack on it - maybe is why) it is a direct bolt-on. The only
thing I had to alter, was to secure the back rest of this one piece
seat to the toolbox front where it locks with heavy adhesive backed
Velcro. I cut out around the toolbox lock cylinder, & also cut off
the plastic pins of the toolbox front that the grommets of the
original back rest would secure to. I bought an extra toolbox front,
should I ever put the stock seat back on should I sell this bike, as
my intention is to someday, upgrade to an 800 model, which this seat
also will fit.
Having an exhaust with a pipe on each side, unlike some of the bikes
equipped with stacked pipes on one side, allows for a nice pair of
mid-sized saddlebags with no worry of getting burned from hot pipes
- plenty of clearance. One thing I did do on this model, was find a
plastic cap to put over the rear axle nut & wrap tape over it to
secure, to prevent the exposed axle nut from rubbing through the
saddlebag the side it's on.
Pretty easy to maintain - changing engine oil, rear gear oil. I'll
find out about changing coolant, as I plan on replacing the hoses
this year, also with changing the clutch & front brake fluids. Front
& rear wheels are easily removed & installed. This is another bike
that does not have a center stand - a motorcycle jack is a big help
& a wise investment.
Personal dislikes - there are not too many:
Bike feels bulky when pushing backwards - weight is not well
distributed. My wife bought a 2008 Yamaha 650 V-Star Classic, & even
though 100 lbs. heavier, it does not feel heavier.
No tach - I have found aftermarket ones available for it, & they are
reasonably priced.
Having to remove the radiator cover to check the coolant level.
5 Speed gearbox - 6th gear overdrive would have been nice to have
had, like some of the others in its class. I'm usually in 5th gear
between 35-40 mph. I'm pretty good at counting gears, but there are
still times I think I'm in 4th, not 5th & I find myself searching to
see if I have one left.
