You couldn’t keep this one undercover if you tried.
A thumping V-twin beat. A flash of chrome. And the Intruder LC 250 bursts onto the scene. It’s big. It’s long. It’s the whole package. Only Suzuki would go so far to deliver a real cruiser to the class.
Now you’ve got it. Get ready to show it off.
Shouting Out Style
The Intruder LC makes its statement hard and fast. Sweeping dual chrome-plated mufflers. A low riding seat. Deep, flared, pinstriped fenders. And a fat, teardrop fuel tank. All real cruiser equipment designed to go hand in hand with the real cruiser style.
Combine a three-valve-per-cylinder 250cc V-twin with advanced gear shift technology that puts the engine’s massive grunt of torque to the ground and you’ve got a machine that practically eats up the road. This is Suzuki’s first 250cc V-twin. And we positioned the finned cylinders at a distinctive 65-degree angle and plated the air cleaner cover and mufflers with chrome to make sure the engine looks as good as it performs. To keep you running hard day after day, it’s fitted with a Mikuni BDS28 carb with a throttle position sensor (TPS) and Black Fluoro-coated pistons. TPS optimizes combustion by adjusting the ignition timing of the independent front and rear cylinder three-dimensional ignition maps to match the engine rpm.
Make friends with any road you travel. The Intruder LC’s long wheelbase, kicked out front end, and deep-seated style add up to comfort. And for the friends you travel with, we included fold-up passenger footrests and a wide seat that’s huge on comfort. Beefy tires, 18 inches on the front and 15 inches on the rear, carve out a smoother ride. And they’re framed by lustrously painted fenders and chrome-plated, spoked wheels that have a style all their own.
We made sure you’re well prepared. Beneath the Intruder LC’s seat is a large 5-liter storage compartment for your gear, a lock, and tools; a wire is included for locking down your helmet inside the compartment. The fuel tank holds 12 liters to keep your visits to fuel stations few and far between. The speedometer is electrically controlled for reliability, and an LCD odometer/tripmeter is part of the smart design. Finally, with custom accessories available through Suzuki dealers, you can truly make the Intruder LC your own.
