The bike comes in the form of a limited edition ahead of the festive season. The demand for vehicles, especially affordable performance motorcycles rises sky high during the festive season, thus manufactures prefer to launch their special edition motorcycles during this time only.
The Intruder SP and Fi SP edition feature an all-new Matte black paint scheme with glossy red stripes running across its bodywork. The whole body of the bike, including the belly pan, the fuel tank and the mudguards are in the matte finish. The main feature of this special edition is the inclusion of a backrest which has an unconventional design and stands out from any other backrest in the market.
Commenting on the launch of the special variant, Satoshi Uchida – Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd, said,
We are happy to introduce the Special Edition ahead of the festive season which will lure the cruiser customers. It’s [Intruder 150] for the people who navigate the challenges and ride it out with brotherhood.
Mechanically there is no change in the bike. The bike still uses the same borrowed engine from Gixxer, the Intruder is however paired with a bigger rear sprocket for more low-end grunt. The bike still features the same air-cooled 155 cc engine which produces 14.8 PS of power @8000 RPM and 14 Nm of torque @6000 RPM. The bike has an 11-litre fuel tank and a fuel economy of around 50 km/l. The Fi variant of the model features the same power and torque figures but improves their delivery. The Fi version is more fuel efficient, more responsive but it also costs more.
The Carb SP edition with Matte black theme is available at the dealerships at an ex-showroom Delhi price of Rs 100,500, while the Fuel Injected Special Edition model costs around Rs 107,300.
