Commenting on the launch of the 2019 Intruder, Devashish Handa, Vice President, Suzuki Motorcycle India, said:
We are delighted to start the new fiscal year with the launch of new Intruder which will fascinate the customers for a relaxed ride. With its modern-day design and premium appeal, Suzuki Intruder is an apt motorcycle for all the cruiser lovers in the country. The 2019 INTRUDER will offer a soothing daily commute as well as short weekend rides.
The Suzuki Intruder is powered by the 154.9 cc SEP single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that makes 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The motor comes paired with a five-speed gearbox.
Stopping power comes from disc brakes on both wheels, and the safety net includes a single-channel ABS as standard. Suspension department continues to feature telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock suspension at the back.
Suzuki Motorcycle India closed FY2018-19 near its target of 7,50,000 unit sales. The brand clocked its highest ever sales and sold 7,47,506 units in FY2018-19. Now, the company hopes to hit 10,00,000 unit sales target in the financial year 2019-2020. The Suzuki Intruder has been performing very poorly in our market. In January and February this year, not a single unit of the entry-level cruiser was sold.
