Aside from the engines, the two machines have little in common, mechanically or stylistically. They are much less alike than Kawasaki’s 800s. The Intruder is sculpted along mild chopper lines in its own distinctive style with a narrow frame, a tall, very skinny front tire, a long, narrow fork, pullback handlebar, wire wheels, a teardrop tank perched atop the frame, a sharply stepped seat with a small backrest (containing the toolbox), and narrow pullback bars completed with that impressive clean Intruder detailing. Hoses, wires, seams, fasteners, and other untidy bits are tucked neatly out of sight. Only a few items, like the battery (which is bigger than the Marauder’s) placed awkwardly below the swingarm pivot, interrupt the tidy detailing. Most of its covers are steel. Even the shroud around the frame neck is steel; all other bikes in this class with such shrouds use plastic.
