The design of this motorcycle is unlike any other bike in the segment.

The Bajaj Avenger 150 so far ruled the budget cruiser space in the market. The Avenger has a traditional laid-back American cruiser design with a low stance, circular headlamp, and raked out front forks. The Suzuki Intruder 150 has a more in-your-face design, with numerous curves and twin exhausts. Here’s how the two motorcycles fare on paper when pitted against each other.

The Intruder and the Avenger are almost identical on the power output, but the latter loses out on torque output marginally. The Avenger also does come with a rear disc brake, nor a single channel ABS. However, the bike features a 3-litre bigger fuel tank, at 14 litres. This would translate to better cruising range than the Intruder. The Intruder on the other hand, comes with an all-digital instrument cluster, apart from the radical design. Interestingly, the two motorcycles have the same kerb weight.
