V-twin style and presence
Nothing has gone wrong and it has been 100% reliable.
As a cruiser it is hard to fault. It looks faster than it goes and it goes well for an 800cc v -twin that is heavy. But performance is not the point with these bikes. They are not performance bikes, and as such have different priorities, such as chrome work, style and the all important v-twin.
This is enhanced by removing the unnecessary components, such as passenger seat, side reflectors and then adding extras - this bike needs to be customised. If you want eye popping performance, race track handling and amazing brakes, buy an R1. If you want a bike that makes you feel great, and that you don't need to ride at 150mph to feel good, then you can do much worse than the Marauder 800. I rate this bike highly.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
