2013 Suzuki Intruder C1500T Touring Cruiser–Pictures, Video, Price and Details

In our last post on Suzuki we talked about the restyled concept model of the next generation Suzuki V-Storm 1000. In the same post we had also mentioned that it was not the only model that was showcased at the International Motor Show in Cologne, and four other models were also there. Of these four models, the first one we are going to talk about is the 2013 Suzuki Intruder C1500T touring cruiser.

While we weren’t expecting this, Suzuki has restyled the Intruder comprehensively and this model is very refreshing. The whole design has been taken a step further and though it loses the macho appeal of other intruder models, it does get a much better look and feel.

The 2013 Suzuki Boulevard Intruder C1500T is powered by a 1462 CC liquid cooled 54 degree V-Twin engine which, as per the claims of Suzuki, is the most powerful engine in the 1000 CC to 1600 CC cruiser class. This is likely to be same engine that does duty in the Boulevard M90. The transmission system of the motorcycle features a 5 speed unit complemented by a slipper clutch and Suzuki’s clutch assist system which reduces the effort needed to operate the lever.

  1. I’m not overly impressed with this version. Would have liked to see a real touring model. The bags look really small. The blacked out look would have to go. Not a real big fan of chrome but all black is worse for me anyway.

    On the Intruder 1500LC/C90 forum I frequent hardly anyone likes it. Most say its just a re-badged M90.

    A real fairing would have been great. Needs much bigger bags. Only 1 disk up front is a joke to most people.

    I’m sure there are people out there that will like it. But not the Intruder folks. I’ll be keeping my LC for now.

  2. Sounds like they’ve straightened out the engine & the gas tank capacity (but loosing the lower centre of gravity). I like the look, it hasn’t changed much, but I like colors, so all black doesn’t cut it for me. Probably next year they’ll have a color selection, so I’ll wait. I still like the traditional white walls & studs on the C90T. Also my wife & I were hoping to see a more comfortable back rest for the passenger, something like the Yamaha Venture, like Suzuki used to have (I forget the name of the model) & instead it has no back rest at all. We’ll wait & see what 2014 brings.
