The Suzuki Intruder 150 has been spotted for the first time. The bike is draped in a silver paint finish.
The Suzuki Intruder 150 will be launched on November 7th in the country. Suzuki has borrowed design elements from the Suzuki Intruder M1800R for this motorcycle. The design of the inverted triangular headlight flows well with the fuel tank extensions. The headlight is an LED projector unit. The engine cowl adds visual mass at the bottom. The motorcycle comes with a laid-back riding position with forwarding set footpegs, and a wide handlebar. The tail section is curvy, with an LED tail light. The indicators are of bulb type clear lens units. The two-piece seat comes with a single curved grab handle for the pillion. The twin exhausts get chrome end caps.
The brochure scans leaked out recently, revealing the specifications of the upcoming motorcycle. Powering the Suzuki Intruder 150 is a 154.9 cc single cylinder SOHC engine with air cooling. It makes 14.8 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The carburetted engine mates with a 5-speed transmission. It is the same engine that does duty in the Gixxer SF.
Coming to the cycle parts, it gets a telescopic front fork and a rear monoshock. The motorcycle rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels that are shod with a 100-section tubeless tyre at the front and 140-section at the rear. For anchorage, the bike uses disc brakes on both ends, with ABS. The ABS system is likely to be a single-channel unit.
The Japanese brand is likely to price the bike at a premium of INR 10,000 – 12,000 over the Suzuki Gixxer SF ABS. The Gixxer SF ABS costs 95,499, ex-showroom, Delhi. The only rival for the bike in the segment is the Bajaj Avenger 150.
