Suzuki really does have the knack of producing good looking traditional cruisers but with bang up to date technology. Their range is also impressive from 125cc right up to 1800cc. The VZ800 Marauder was just such a model when announced in 2001.
The VZ800’s ‘Hot-Rod inspired styling is amply matched by its superb Water-cooled 805 cc 45° V-twin engine, giving the relatively light 207kg brisk performance throughout its rev-range, aided by 65nm of torque. The handling with inverted front forks and adjustable ‘twin-shock’ set up is class leading, and coupled to its superb roll-on roll-off power delivery really is a complete machine at so many levels.
