Nice looking sled. Dig that left sidecase that looks like an..um..pressure cooker or something. Suzuki was never my favorite Japanese bike (stuff like the TS185 & Cyclone) but the new machines are just swell.

I can't see any shots of the left side..must be a pig and they don't want to show it.

Jeez, I meant the RIGHT sidecase...you're right, no pics of the left side...maybe a big hairy wart on the left side panel? Hey, that might be a new market, like plastic dog poop.

Default First thought

My first thought is, "It's okay." Then, I was looking at the MO main page with the pic at the top and noticed how eerily similar it is to the V-Rod Muscle (take a look - you'll see what I mean). Wierd!

The shop has already recieved one, and up close, I guess its alright. I would never want to own a smaller version of an original large powerhouse cruiser though. But for a woman, it could serve as a good alterative.

Theres people who actually think they can buy the 1800 as a first bike.

I guess they have no choice but those exhaust pipes they are putting on cruisers to meet the noise standards sort of ruin the entire thing. Not that the owners don't throw them away immediately.

Default Where's the dyno

Looks good, apart from that plastic 70s style Soviet toilet fitting substituting the head light. This thing should be put on a dyno. Otherwise hard to think of it as anything more than one more run-of-the-mill mild gutless low-power midsize cruiser. Plain bloody vanilla in the motor department. Everybody has one already.

Typical numbers on the vzr1800 are around 110hp.
