Suzuki M800 Intruder Bike Overview
Suzuki’s Intruder series has been around quite successfully for some time and the M800 Intruder is a quality cruiser bike which comes with impressive styling and a solid engine. Suzuki consistently hit the middle road when it comes to suspension and brakes and that is certainly the case here but this is a comfortable ride which will eat up those miles like a dream.
Cruisers are typically an expensive type of bike to purchase but the M800 Intruder manages to present fairly good value in a competitive market. There were build quality issues with a number of the earlier models but these were recalled and rectified and it seems to have held its own since then.
The engine on the other hand is faultless, with a solid reputation for reliability. It utilises an electronic fuel injection which makes the delivery of power smooth and seamless, with an excellent sound and plenty of torque. At 245kg it isn’t the lightest bike on the scene but you certainly won’t notice that and once you get those revs up it’s the ideal cruiser. It can even handle motorway speeds with comfort.
Overall the Suzuki M800 Intruder is a comfortable and luxurious ride which has been designed to offer maximum comfort over long periods. The seat is plush and wide and the bars have been placed well to ensure the riding position is as relaxed as possible. USD forks and an LED tail light come as standard giving this bike an expensive feel which you’ll just love to ride about town.
