Motorcycle Road Test: Suzuki Intruder 800 Volusia

Excerpt from one of the original reviews on the Volusia when it came on the scene in 2001. Thanks for the idea to post this nostalgic article here Jimysan!

Motorcycle Road Test: Suzuki Intruder 800 Volusia
Named after the Florida county that's home to motorcycling's Mecca, the newest member of Suzuki's Intruder 800 family of V-twin motorcycles sets new standards for the class. From the June 2001 issue of Motorcycle Cruiser magazine.

Think Volusia County, Florida and you probably conjure up visions of languid blue skies, the relentless sun and--at least two weeks out of the year--incredibly loud motorcycles. That's because this chunk of real estate in central Florida encompasses the bike mecca of Daytona Beach, site of the largest motorcycling melee in the country and home to a storied racing heritage. It was only fitting, then, that Suzuki introduced its newest middleweight cruiser at the holy rite of Daytona Beach Bike Week. And while the midsized VL800 Intruder Volusia might recall the classic lines of the bikes of yore, it certainly won't deafen your delicate sensibilities like some of the more, er, traditional fare you find thundering around Main Street during this biker version of Spring Break.
