2007 Suzuki VS1400 Intruder from Canada


I would recommend it


My one concern is that the gas tank is too small (14L) for a 1500 cc engine.

General Comments:

I had the 1400 Intruder, a cruiser, which was quicker and more responsive, but not comfortable for longer trips, and when riding 2-up, I ended up on the gas tank.

The 1500 touring is much more comfortable, and seems to get better gas mileage. As an experiment, I ran it dry and got 275 km (170 miles) to the tank.

Handles well and very responsive to the throttle.

Passengers are more comfortable, but did comment that the foot pegs were not in the optimum position.

I have received many compliments on its looks.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree. We have the 1500, and I ride as the passenger. Took a 3 hours ride to Leesburg Fl this past April, and I was not comfortable at all. The vibration did a number on my lower back. I got a Royal Riding cushion on the trip back, and it was better. Need the the foot pegs replaced though with the passenger foot boards. May make a difference.
