2018 Suzuki Intruder FI gets the benefit of fuel injection and a marginal price hike
The new 2018 Suzuki Intruder FI has been priced at Rs 1,06,896; the stock carburettor version retails for Rs 99,995. The brand new cruiser bike from Suzuki is going to be available in two color choices metallic oort/metallic matt black, and glass sparkle black/metallic matt ceramic silver. According to Suzuki, the new fuel-injection system is made up of six detectors that compute the optimum quantity of fuel needed for greater combustion.
According to the launch, Sajeev Rajasekharan, executive vice president, sales and advertising, SMIPL stated, “Since its launching, the Intruder has obtained an overwhelming need with near 15,000 units sold, overachieving our projected earnings goal by 25 percent. With a distinctive mix of superior allure, coupled with innovative features like ABS and an efficient gas injection technology, the Intruder is a superior offering at the cruiser segment, unlike any other”
The Suzuki Intruder relies on the Gixxer platform also will be the first affordable cruiser from Suzuki for the Indian industry. Styling of the bicycle is somewhat in-your-face also it’s received mixed reviews for its layout language. It carries forward the exact same all-digital tool console as noticed on the Gixxer.
Powering the Intruder FI, is precisely the exact same 155cc, single-cylinder engine as seen on the conventional Intruder and, regardless of the accession of fuel-injection, torque and power figures stay equal at 14.6hp and 14Nm respectively. Transmission responsibilities are managed with a five-speed gearbox. It will get a 41mm telescopic setup front along with also a mid-mounted, preload-adjustable monoshock at the back. The bicycle was outfitted with 17-inch metal wheels, which include shod with 100-section MRF Nylogrip Zapper front along with a 140-section Zapper in the back. Anchorage is offered by disk brakes on both the ends and also single-channel ABS functions as standard.
Given its cost and positioning, the Suzuki Intruder does not have some true competition within our two-wheeler distance and the only bike which comes close connected to pricing is that the Bajaj Avenger 220 series.
