Slim was in when the Intruder 1400 was being designed, and despite a few minor styling changes over the years it retains that narrow, chopped look. The tank accommodates only 3.4 gallons and the slender, stepped saddle terminates in a short, but welcome, passenger backrest. A narrow 19-inch wire wheel, stopped by a single disc, points the way up in front with a fat 15-incher squatting out back. By the time the Intruder 1500 LC was introduced in '98, fat was where it was at. To get the wide, comfortable style cruiser buyers sought, Suzuki kept little except the layout of the shafts in its V-twin engine and the three-valve cylinder-head layout. Bore and stroke were increased to yield 1462cc and compression was dropped slightly. Both carbs were located together between the 1500's cylinders, and both pipes exited on the right side. The crankshaft's mass was increased for more flywheel effect, and the 1500 got five speeds and shaft final drive. Much of the drivetrain was beefed up to handle the added weight and power, and new, wider cases and covers were used.
