– 2001 Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC


Suzuki’s commitment to all kinds of motorcyclists is nowhere more obvious than in its lineup of cruisers. Suzuki builds a wide selection of models that appeal to people of all ages and experience levels. Classically-styled motorcycles with upright handlebars, plush seats and comfortable riding positions. But don’t let the familiar lines fool you. Each one of these bikes comes standard with up-to-date technology, as seen on the all-new Intruder Volusia 800. With seven bikes ranging from 250cc all the way to 1500cc, there’s plenty to choose from.

VL1500 Intruder LC

To many riders, the long, low, massive cruiser style is what motorcycling is all about. The VL1500 Intruder LC successfully blends all of these elements with modern technology and reliability at an affordable price. The VL1500 air/oil cooled engine is tuned to produce peak torque at just 2300 rpm and geared to turn a leisurely 2700 rpm at 65 mph. The engine is based around the same crankcase and 5-speed shaft drive system as the legendary VS1400, but with many additional features that enhance reliability and simplify service, such as plated cylinders and hydraulic valve lash adjusters.

The Intruder 1500 has a low 27.6 inch seat height with wide, comfortable seats. Placement of the handlebars and controls was carefully thought out for maximum comfort. Even the front brake lever and clutch lever can be adjusted to suit the rider’s preference. The double cradle steel frame is made of large diameter, thin-walled tubing for maximum strength and minimal weight, and is supported by 41mm front forks and a preload adjustable single-shock rear suspension for a comfortable ride. The whole package rolls on wide tires mounted on custom-styled cast aluminum wheels with front and rear disc brakes.

For 2001 Intruder customers can choose from three great new colors and a wide range of Intruder LC accessories designed for touring, commuting or bold custom look.

Modern technology combined with classic, detailed styling is what the VL1500 is all about.
