2004 Suzuki Marauder 1600 (VZ1600)

New naked performance

Building on the proven performance and good looks of the hot-rod Marauder 800, Suzuki brings you the bigger and badder 2004 Suzuki Marauder 1600. The combination of aggressive power, sporty handling and a dynamic looks makes the new Marauder 1600 a winner on any boulevard.

Motivation for the 04 Marauder 1600 comes courtesy of a rubber-mounted, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-stroke, four-valve-per-cylinder V-twin. The powerful engine utilizes a compact combustion chamber, digital fuelinjection system with dual 40mm throttle bodies and dual-plug digital ignition. The result is precise engine response and gobs of torque.

A close-ratio five-speed transmission conveys horsepower to the rear wheel via a low-maintenance, dualhydraulic air shock-equipped shaft drive system. Up front, 43mm upside-down cartridge forks offer unmatched handling while sportbike-style, six-piston discs provide stopping power. Rear brakes consist of a single-disc setup.

Styling for the new Marauder is pure hot-rod, from the aggressively styled, oversize headlight to the sleek 4.5- gallon fuel tank. Completing its sporting chic exterior is the sculpted rear fender with exotic-looking taillight treatment and multi-reflector turn signals.

Introducing the all-new 2004 Suzuki Marauder 1600 a new chapter in Suzuki cruiser performance.
