– 2001 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder
2001 SUZUKI CRUISERS: A WIDE RANGE OF MODELS
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.
The Suzuki Marauder’s combination of hot rod-inspired styling and up-to-the-minute technology make it one-of-a-kind. A 45- degree V-Twin engine produces strong torque throughout the powerband, and features Twin Swirl combustion chamber cylinder heads with an overhead camshaft and four valves per cylinder for strong roll-on acceleration and precise throttle response. To make sure there’s plenty of comfort to go with the perfomance there’s a thickly padded two-piece seat and pull-back handlebars. Add in the Marauder’s unique inverted front forks and adjustable twin rear shocks, and you have a machine that rides as great as it looks. The Marauder will be available for 2001 in classic maroon or blue with new graphics.
