    I will there covering it LIVE!

    It is conformed that Intruder M1800R and the Hayabusa are officially being launched. The launch has not started yet though, I am reading off the press kit. No mention of the cost as well. Will update as the launch progresses.

    The Intruder:

    Thread reopened.

    The Hayabusa and Intruder will be available at 8 cities across India :
    • Delhi
    • Mumbai
    • Pune
    • Bangalore
    • Ahmedabad
    • Hyderabad
    • Chennai
    • One more city cant remember will update

    Price : 12.5 Lacs ex-showroom is the confirmed price

    Target : 300-350 bikes per annum which is almost a bike a day, Mr Atul Gupta VP Marketing Suzuki India said.

    All launched models are 2009 models.

    Service and spares are going to be key focus for Suzuki for the CBUs. The spares are available with Suzuki main factory. Spares can be made available at any cities mentioned above within 48 hours of order.

    The GSXR 2009 will be launched in India along with its worldwide release. Suzuki are keen only to sell the latest products that why the 2008 GSXR wasnt launched with the Busa and Intruder (which are 2009 models). Pictures coming up.

    Also the price difference is because of the falling rupee. i heard that even the R1 will have its price raised now (if Yamaha sells the 09 and not 07 models in the current year!).

    The delivery time is immediate on payment or loan approval.
    Insurance is by IFFCO-TOKIO.

    Exciting stuff! Would be worthwhile to see how Suzuki prices these machines, when compared to the R1 and the MT-01. Also, would be interested in seeing the service backup that they provide the owners with.

        The Intruder has come out of the blue (at least for me)... Its a welcome surprise... Now if they price it intelligently, then we are in for a treat... good to see companies bringing in their flagship models... It'll only improve the biking scene of this country...
        Forza Juve!

              Launching the M1800R is a good step indeed.
              The busa is gonna be priced around 20-25k more than the R1 (comparing OTR Delhi prices). As of the M1800R, lets wait and watch

                    archi : US MSRP is around USD 13000, a lil more than the BUSA. But like Yamaha, Suzuki might want to price both the bikes equally

                      I too wasn't aware of the launch of the Intruder until today.
