Spacious riding position and superb ergonomics

Once upon a time, cruisers made you choose between style and performance. Then the Intruder 1400 burst upon the scene. Finally, style and performance were melded together in a radical machine that offered a stunning combination of classic American cruiser styling and heart-pounding performance. Let your eyes wander over their striking good looks. Check out its V-twin engine with blacked-out treatment and polished fins. Aggressively raked forks and high-quality chrome. Custom seat and deep marble-flake paint. And their classic 60-spoke wheel with polished aluminum rims. The Intruder is a rolling, kinetically charged work of art. But if it’s the look that catches your eye, it’s the performance that will keep you coming back for more. It cranks out a huge amount of torque across a wide powerband. Roll on the throttle and it will practically leap forward in a rush of acceleration. And here’s the real kicker: The Intruder 1400 offers something that was never associated with big V-twins exceptional long-term reliability. When you want to get out for a long afternoons ride or a long weekend on the open highway you’ll appreciate their spacious riding position and superb ergonomics. What’s more, both bikes have advanced suspension that offers exceptional responsiveness and a plush ride.

And a wealth of technological designs rubber engine mounts, staggered crankpins and shaft drive provide smooth operation and outstanding comfort for the long haul.
