Suzuki Intruder M1800R For Sale
The Suzuki Intruder M1800R is a cruiser style bike and is powered by a huge 1,783cc V-Twin engine which puts out 123bhp.
What Is It?
- Low maintenance shaft drive, looks, torque, brakes, comfort
- Really heavy, not overly fond of corners, firm suspension
Suzuki launched the M1800R in 2006 powered by a liquid cooled 1783cc V-Twin four stroke engine, achieving maximum power of 123bhp at 6,200rpm and peak torque at 3,200rpm. The engine benefits from GSX-R tech and is controlled by Suzuki's electronic fuel injection system; you control the first set of two valves while the clever 32bit ECU controls the second based on temperature/pressure data from the air sensor. RRP is £12,500 in 2017.
- Steel double cradle frame with cast Aluminium swingarm
- Dual 310mm front discs with radial mount 2 piston calipers based on the GSX-R
- Rear 275mm disc with 2 piston caliper
- Kayaba 46mm upside down fork with 130mm travel
- Rear Kayaba pre-load adjustable shock with 120mm travel
- Fuel injection and Dual Valve Throttle System
- 2-1-2 stainless steel exhaust system, tuned by audio engineers for maximum impact
- 5 speed constant mesh gearbox
- LED tail light and indicators
To get the torque from the engine to the rear wheel is a shaft drive system, much like the BMW R1200GS. Looking at the wheels both are 18" cast Aluminium alloy fitted with a chunky 240 section rear and 130 front tubeless tyre. Just be careful not to shred the tyre with an overly enthusiastic throttle.
For maximum flexibility between looking good solo and touring two up Suzuki provide both the pillion seat and seat cowl. Options include a pillion back rest/sissy bar, tall screen for maximum touring comfort and a shiny drive shaft cover (although we think it looks fine in black). There is also a gear indicator alongside the clock and fuel gauge.
The M1800RZ and M1800RBZ B.O.S.S. are special editions with tasty custom colours to really stand out, some with blacked out details; mirrors, bars, levers, front forks/stem, tank cover, engine, exhaust, calipers and stand. The RBZ retails for a grand more new than the £11k base model and as such they command a small premium used.

M1800Z L2 2012
Although I haven’t had the bike long, I have covered a little over 2500 miles. The bike is a real crowd pleaser, wherever I go, people comment on the stunning looks.
Riding the bike is a real pleasure, the raw power & torque has to be felt to be believed. The bike is very heavy, but with the low centre of gravity, and the huge back tyre, it feels much lighter. It is very well balanced at low speeds, so town driving is no problem. The handling is superb for a bike of this size & weight, and grounding footrests is a common event.
The only things I would change, would be a Hydraulic clutch instead of the cable one that is fitted, not because the clutch is heavy, just that hydraulic is more reliable. The other thing would be self cancelling indicators.
Other than that, I would highly recommend a test ride on one of these.

I LOVE this bike!! If you're into cruisers you'll love this bike. Not so many custom parts available in the UK but ebay has tons.
My only gripe is that such a big, torquey engine could do with a sixth gear for motorway cruising, revving at about 3250 in top at 70mph.
