2000 Suzuki VL250LC Intruder

The 2000 MY Suzuki VL250LC Intruder is a chopper created for beginning riders or for those who would rather rider a small-displacement motorcycle than a scooter to work. With a classic design and the unmistakable v-twin rumble, this is a full-on cruiser which can reach highway speeds even when riding two-up.

The engine produces 24 hp tops, so there's plenty of power to make this bike fun, besides economical. Classy, ample fenders are complemented by chromed details, and a tank-mounted console, with generous, highly-visible turn signals and and plenty of street cred.
