    Engine, frame and wheels are Suzuki VX 800, the body work is different, nice looking aluminum, though.
    The VX featured the bored-up engine of the Intruder 750, which later became the Marauder 800.
    It was a nice-looking bike but too heavy (240kg wet) and under-powered (60 hp).
    Then again some Harleys would be happy with those figures...

    The VX 800 was a step in the right direction, but not extreme enough. Suzuki had more success when it came out with the SV650 a few years later. Brand new 90 degree twin, 180 kg wet, 70 hp. Weight and power is of course not everything but it says a lot about a bike. Haven't heard any complains when it comes to the SV650! Price was right, too.

    Yes SV 850 and its big brother are excellent machines , brilliant engines , the chassis is budget but can easily be improved.
