Q:

What is the Suzuki Intruder 800?

A:

The Suzuki Intruder VZ800 is a model of cruiser motorcycle in the Japanese motor vehicle manufacturer Suzuki Motor Corporation's Intruder line, which originated in the mid-1980s and was discontinued and replaced with a different line in the mid-2000s. This motorcycle is designed for comfort, maneuverability and durability rather than speed; it is not a racing bike, and it has room for a passenger in addition to the driver. With a padded seat and comfortable handlebar orientation, this motorcycle is suitable for long trips and is designed to suit those who intend to ride for hours at a time.

The VZ800 is just one of several models in the Intruder line. Although these motorcycles are not being manufactured new as of summer of 2014 and have not been for nearly a decade, it is possible to purchase used models. Suzuki replaced the Intruder line with the Boulevard line in 2005, but some international models may still carry the Intruder name. Overall, the VZ800 received positive but not glowing reviews, with industry reviewers praising the bike's attractive appearance and comfort, but also noting that, compared to other bikes in the same cruiser class, the Suzuki Intruder VZ800 did not stand up to the competition. Those shopping for used models may want to ensure that all parts are working prior to purchase.
