Suzuki has launched Intruder 150 in India at sub-1 lakh pricing; comes as a pricier alternative of Bajaj Avenger 150 Street
Suzuki has launched its latest product Intruder 150 in India and with this bike, the Japanese brand has entered the less populated 150 cc cruiser segment, where only Bajaj had one product till date. The all-new Suzuki Intruder 150 comes priced at Rs. 98,340 (ex-showroom, New Delhi) and only one variant of the model has been launched. This arrives as a pricey alternative to the Bajaj Avenger 150 Street.
While the Intruder 150 comes pricier compared to the Avenger Street 150’s pricing of Rs. 80,960 (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the overall package certainly justifies the price tag of the Suzuki bike. It gets ABS as standard, which is unavailable in Bajaj Avenger. If you look at the design, the Suzuki Intruder 150 arrives drawing inspiration from its bigger sibling. In that way, the new bike gets a globally acclaimed design.
Speaking about the Suzuki Intruder 150, it sports a very sculpted and eye-catching appearance. It boasts a fully digital instrument cluster enhancing the premiumness, while the muscular fuel tank comes boosting the bike’s visual appeal. A low positioned rider seat increases the rider’s confidence in handling the 148 kg weighing machine.
Suzuki Intruder 150 arrives with LED headlamp, LED taillight, dual disc brakes and ABS that increase its appeal and practicality as well compared to the Bajaj Avenger. It gets a 266 mm front disc brake and 240 mm rear disc brake, while suspension setup includes telescopic front forks and monoshock absorber at rear. Currently the bike is available only with carburetor, a fuel injected version is expected to arrive in the country within next six months.
Suzuki Intruder 150 is powered by a 155 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine coupled with a 5-speed gearbox. This engine also does duty in the Suzuki Gixxer and it is capable of churning out 14.6 bhp of peak power and 14 Nm of peak torque. So on paper, it comes slightly more powerful compared to the Bajaj Avenger Street 150.
