Suzuki VL 1500: road test

Look at the Intruder, a former flagship of Suzuki. It is possible to describe it in three words: long, low and massive.

Once you move faster than a slow walk, you feel all its greatness that is kept under the feet. Despite the huge mass, it is not that hard to support it at a stop.

Intruder has a saddle that you can spend all day on with regrets because of a coming sunset. Many independent sources confirmed the quality of the saddle; it is wide, flat and made of good material that will be still pleasant for sitting even after hundred thousands of miles. It has 16 inches at its widest point.

The engine appears as wide as a fuel tank because of chrome metal covers which are large. The bulging cover covers the rectifier. To reach the tool kit, you have to face with one more cover. The fuel tank is hidden by the black side panel.

There is a minus: the fuel system does not have a fuel reserve and a sensor

It is much easier to fill the 1500 LC's under-seat fuel tank than traditional ones. The lid has a fake leather finish that looks not as good as it should be on such a bike.

The chrome fork shield behind the headlight is nice to touch. It would have been good if the designers had painted the back part of the same area as well. The rear of the fork's top seems to be incomplete and needs a cover.
