Get on an Intruder 1500 – and turn on the excitement

The 2004 Suzuki Intruder 1500 is designed to let you capture the gut-level experience of motorcycling in its purest form. It has the performance to give you a visceral charge from the thrill of acceleration – or from the controlled power of centrifugal force in a turn.

The key to the excitement is this Intruder’s V-twin powerplant. It’s a long-stroke 45-degree V that produces a huge amount of torque. You’re in for a monstrous surge of acceleration in every gear. The Intruder also has an extended chassis and long wheelbase, which allows a wonderfully spacious riding position. Out on the highway, you and a passenger have the room to stretch out and ride in comfort all day long. The Intruder’s suspension is responsive and plush. It has floorboards and a deeply padded seat. And its engine has dual offset crank pins and shaft drive for smooth performance.

The Intruder 1500 is styled to turn heads wherever you go. Its flowing lines, sparkling chrome and lustrous paint make it a work of art.
