Need some Feedback on a cruiser....

Although I am pretty settled on getting a Triumph Speedmaster, I am still always searching for anything....

Anyone familiar with a 2004 Suzuki Marauder 1600.... local Used bike shop has a clean one with 1600 miles on it.

It has the muscle bike look I am looking for...

Just curious if its worth considering?

Sorry, I cant give you any info on the Suzuki, It does look nice. But I think the triumph looks better and has way more character. IMO Character beats out practicality when it comes to bikes, especially cruisers.

I've ridden the big Suzuki M109R muscle cruiser, was a very nice bike other than being HUGE.

I've also ridden their little 650 thumper cruiser, was ok for what it was.

That's all I got.

I think you should stick with the Triumph as that's the one I'd rather drive up to Rockaway to borrow.

It's a kawasuki ... a bit anemic. It got much better when it became the M as sbeau mentioned.

I'd personally avoid it. Better cruisers out there for the dollar.

That's all I got.
Speaking about the M109, A lady came in the shop awhile back looking for her a first bike, One of our guys was waiting on her and she was sitting on several different style bikes. She spotted a new M109R and sat on it.
Then she said " This tank is so big and wide that it spreads my legs so far apart that I feel like I'm giving myself to the bike."
I about fell in the floor.

Well, Tomorrow I am gonna take 1/2 day and hit the Triumph Demo day.....

Close to a decision.... But I am gonna be honest, I stopped to look at that Marauder again..... It's a great looking bike, and very comfortable to sit on.

So I plan 1st riding the Speedmaster ( and anything I can get my hands on during the Demo day), then head up to try and let them take the Marauder out.....

Will try to make a decision tomorrow

GTONUT,
I see you're looking into the cruisers with the muscle look. Not sure of all your'e requirements but the 1100 v-star custom in midnight black looks killer. A first generation V-max is pure muscle too. Since you're going to Triumph day are you looking at the bonneville/scramblers? I always thought those were cool bikes.

The V-Star looks ok........... but I am trying like heck to stay around the $5000 price range....

As far as the triumph......... I am looking at the Speedmaster..... I want forward controls....

Golfing tomorrow (errr, later today) otherwise I'd shoot up there and check it out.
Be wondering what the fuss is about and I'm checking out cruisers anyways.
Look forward to hearing about it.

Parts and maintenance can be an issue on the Triumph - but I would take that over the Marauder any day of the week.

As mentioned, 1st generation VMax's can be had for less that $5K, but they have a few quirks - I could live with them all though....

You could always pick up a used Harley, plenty of them for well under $5K now......

My old Triumph never had an issue and there is one of the same style Tigers at the dealer now with 85K on it and no issues.

Other than little odd things that happen (*like with any manufacturer) I am not aware of any known issues at all with the bonneville line (and yes, the SpeedMaster falls in that category - same motor).

A close friend had an 05 SpeedMaster and now has an 09 Speedmaster. The FI is wonderful. The bike never had issues before, but now everything is better.

The Triumph was nice..... dont get me wrong. Did it Wow me.... no, but it was nice.

Going tomorrow night to relook at the Marauder, every review I have read had nothing but great things to say about them. I actually think the Marauder is a great looking bike....

I rode a speedmaster before and I felt very cramped (6'1'' 230) its small for a cruiser, doesnt really have much power either compared to other cruisers, make sure you ride one before you buy it, most triumph dealers will let you demo them.

If you really want the best of both worlds try a roadstar warrior...

I rode the Speedmaster yesterday......

I am 5"10" ..... 32in inseam, and I found it to be the opposite. I felt I had to sort of swivel my hips to properly shift the bike..... I felt too far away from the foot controls...

Power was fine.... I am not a speed demon by any means....

But after riding it...... I came away with a "meh" feeling about it....

I rode a Speedmaster a couple of years ago, thought the same thing. Cool looking bike, rode fine, but didn't 'wow' me.

Talk to some shop mechanics, on the side, about the Maurader.

The few I've spoke to about it were far less than impressed.

Just FYI

Like any motorcycle, you may love it and have no problems with it. Worse case, it is only a material thing that can easily be replace.

How about a Triumph Thruxton? Note the teaser base T-Bonnie doesn't come with $900 of Tach, tools and centerstand!
If someone gave me a cruiser, I'd ride the water cooled/belt/FI Yammy Vstar-1300.

Im not sure of how I missed this - Maurader = Mean Streak , ifyo ulike the looks and want it to go you need to ditch the stock exhaust , get a K and N and a power commander - then it will go. Those bikes are so choked down by emissions crap, its pathetic. One you put some stuff on it they actually perform much better -
As for other bikes, +1 on the M109, that bike isa riot ! I got to ride one once and was really impressed by it - it handles very well for a big cruiser and makes awesome power - if you whack the throttle open in first and second gear at about 10/15mph it will spin the rear tire ! Way fun !
Othe ones if you like the power cruiser thing -
M90 - baby M109
Star Warrior - fun ride !
Vulcan 2000 - yeah, kind of a more traditions looking cruiser, but, that motor kicks butt ! TORQUE everywhere ! And it like diferent eahsut stuff also - I had one for my demo, I put a Muzzy exhaust, K and N filter assembly and a Power commander on it. It dynoed @ like 90/100 hp and 180 fltlbs of torque !

The M50's are 800cc, doesn't really qualify as a power cruiser but looks cool.

I think the Warrior is a 1700. If I was looking for a cruiser that's what I'd have.

OK...... Just got back.....

Warrior..... still uncomfortable......OUT

Marauder..... very close..... if I was in a rush, I would bite. But this time I am just going to have to wait till I can afford what I want....

Winner.... and I keep on coming back to this bike, as much as I try and shop around....

VTX1800F

Its the only bike I would buy without a roadtest, it just fits that well for me. Looks amazing to me....

Wife would freak if I spent that kind of money.....

Going to have to wait....
