Earlier, Suzuki launched the Intruder 150 in the Indian two-wheeler market. The quirky looking entry-level cruiser was targeted primarily at the Bajaj Avenger Street. The bike received mixed reactions in the market, primarily due to its off-beat design. You can watch our Suzuki Intruder 150 vs Bajaj Avenger 180 Street video comparison review right here.
Suzuki is betting big on the Indian two-wheeler market and aims to launch at least two premium bikes and scooters each year. The company showcased three new products at the Auto Expo 2018.
