Suzuki Intruder 150 is a new bike which has recently been launched in India by Suzuki. The bike is a unique combination of modern styling, performance and features. It has largely been considered as a bike which will mark Suzuki’s entry into the sports segment.
Suzuki Intruder 150 Features
Intruder 150 operates using 154.9 cc air-cooled petrol engine which is seen on Gixxer 150 but in a different manner. The bike produces 14.14Ps at 8000 rpm and a torque of 14 Nm at 6000 rpm. The motor is a bit different way of functioning because of its bigger air intake, airbox and a tuned exhaust. It is coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox borrowed from Gixxer. It has a bigger rear sprocket to ensure low-end performance. The bike has a fuel tank of 11 litres and weighs close to 148 kg, which is 8 kg more than Gixxer. Braking is done using disk brakes fitted on both ends.
The bike has a single channel ABS on the front, 17-inch alloy wheels which are shod with 100-section MRF Nylogrip Zapper at the front and a 140 section Zapper on the rear. It has a carburetor fed engine and shares different parts such as wheels, tyres, suspension and instrument console with the famous Gixxer series. The 150cc cruiser is a worthy rival of Avenger 150.

Suzuki Intruder 150 offers LED projector headlight, a sporty twin exhaust, aerodynamic tank, all-digital instrument cluster which has been adapted from Gixxer and LED tail-lamp.

Suzuki Intruder advantages
- The bike has a distinctive design.
- It has a relaxed riding position and is stretched out with forward-set foot pegs for a feet-forward riding position.
- The bike has friendly ergonomics and a compact handlebar.
Suzuki Intruder disadvantages
- The bike is too bulky as compared to others.
- The tank is quite small as compared to other parts of the bike.
- The tank’s curvy lines flow into the bike’s broad and curvy haunches. But they are in complete contrast to large, angular twin-barrel exhausts and make the 140-section rear tyre which looks absurdly skinny.
