“Since its launch, the Intruder has received an overwhelming demand with close to 15000 units sold, overachieving our projected sales target by 25 per cent. With a unique blend of premium appeal, coupled with futuristic features like ABS and now an efficient Fuel Injection technology, the Intruder is a premium offering in the cruiser segment, unlike any other,” said Sajeev Rajasekharan, executive vice president, sales & marketing, Suzuki Motorcycles India said, on the launch of Suzuki Intruder FI.
The new Intruder F1 comes with the same 155 cc engine as its older sibling which was launched in November 2017. This engine offers 14.8 ps engine output at 8000 rpm, and 14 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. Along with projector like LED headlamp, it offers full-digital meter, LED tail lamp, twin exhaust system and ABS. It has disc brakes in both wheels and offers telescopic suspension in the front while Swing Arm type suspension is in the rear side.
The fuel injection system, Suzuki says, improves fuel efficiency and throttle response. It has 6 sensors that calculate data in real time for optimum amount of fuel to be injected for better combustion efficiency resulting in improved fuel efficiency and accurate throttle response.
