Review of the 2004 Suzuki Marauder 1600 S:
2 years and still enjoying the Marauder
Author: Tom Zakrzewski, 2018-09-24, viewed 271 times.
I´ve had this bike for over 2 years now, and ride it pretty hard. Lot of Colorado Mountain riding and handles well. Strong performer, keeps up with group and looks great
So, I originally bought a Suzuki Volusia bobber (800 cc) after getting back into riding and rode with large group of variety bikers. HD´s Yamaha´s, BMW, Triumph´s and quickly discovered I didn´t have enough power to keep up.
We ride pretty hard and was looking for more power and cc´s. Loved the Mean Streak look and the Honda VT1800, but came across this bike. Bought it with 23K miles for Dollars 2500. Good deal. Has been extremely reliable, fun and enough power to keep up and lead.
Great in stance, aggressive in riding position and I would say similar to VRod as far as bikes that are like a hybrid cruiser/sport bike. Could use a little more clearance when leaning into tight corners, because you will scrape, but man, this bike carves into corners well and pulls out even better.
Mileage is OK, could be better and if you ride it hard, you are only going to get 25 mpg. My bike now has over 32K and is starting to use a little oil, so watch your levels. Wish it had a fuel gauge other than light, have to use the trip to keep track of how much gas you have. Shaft driven, so maintaining it really is pretty straight forward.
