Verdict

Suzuki Intruder 150: Top Things To Know About The Bajaj Avenger Rival

The Suzuki Intruder 150 is inspired from the bigger and powerful Intruder M1800R. The motorcycle has got decent performance and fuel-efficiency while offering a relaxed riding posture. The main downside of the motorcycle is its looks. The Intruder 150 is a bad-looking motorcycle (especially when viewed from the rear) with its extra-bulky body and skinny tyres.

But in terms of usability and practicality, the Suzuki Intruder 150 is a fitting rival to the Bajaj Avenger 150.
