Suzuki VL800 Intruder review

We went to test the Suzuki VL800 Intruder with reviews in mind.

The Suzuki VL800 Intruder or mostly called Volusia is a good looking retro cruiser, it can be customized with various fitted accessories. The engine compartment along with the muffler and header pipes are glittered with chrome. However, other parts appears to be chrome imitation and plastics which is not cheap as you think it is. Its top tank carries huge fuel volume ready for long tours while a dashboard with integrated LCD and analog gauges will record the travel milestone. It’s comfortable for all-day ride, fatigue is not felt from arms to legs. Its leather seat, upright seating position and ample leg room allows graceful movements.

The 805cc engine delivers linear power, not much mid-range power but has generous torque. There is a broad power band that released good throttle response from low-to-top rpm. Gearbox is perfect for the Volusia it does not rattle and the soft suspension gives smooth feeling when tackling unpaved road. Passing other vehicles on the highway needs a quick gear shifting which is doable. Ride quality receives a 5-star rating from us because of its relaxed position, easy steering, decent chassis and its reliable performance. The wide handlebars, low seat setting and forward footpegs proves the cruiser’s rider friendliness. Miles per miles, traveling with this cruiser will surely be great and delightful.
