  • Righteous Bike for Low $$$

    Apr 22, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Looks, Low Price, High Quality
    Cons: Needs 6th Gear, Tach, More Fuel Capacity, Belt or Shaft-Drive, More Ground Clearance

    Summary: I bought a brand new 2002 Suzuki Marauder VZ800 in May of 2002. I've now had it nearly a year and I have to say, I am very pleased with this motorcycle. After putting over 4,000 miles on it within about 11 months, I feel I can objectively detail the pros ... read more

  • Most Dependable Bike You Will Ever Own

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great cornering bike - you can drag the pegs and it loves it. It's indestructable.
    Cons: Oil window, down shifting, the seat sucks, needs a taller front sprocket and bigger tank.

    Summary: Can't say enough good things about this machine. I've been riding since I was 10, was looking for a mid-size cruiser to commute to work. Saw the 2000 model at the dealer and said what everybody says who sees it, "What kind of bike is that? That's a ... read more

    Pros: I need to know the pros
    Cons: I need to know the cons.

    Summary: Looks are great one this bike. Couldn't get a great test drive in so I'm not sure about the front end handling. I'm a 2 year rider now. I've had a 2006 750 Honda Shadow spirit. My big mistake was taking out my husbands 1400 Suzuki Intruder for a quick ... read more

    Pros: Handling and low end torque, looks.
    Cons: Needs 6th gear for highway, chain drive. Gas tank capacity.

    Summary: Bought this bike used this past fall - 2002 with only 200+ miles. Tripled that the first week I had it. What a fun bike to ride. Bike is responsive and quick, handles well at speed though a little sluggish when going slow. Looks nice and passes the ... read more

    Pros: Style/Power/Price/Reliability

    Pros: Affordable, Reliable, and full of Speed
    Cons: Hard Shifting, Needs 6th gear, too quiet

    Summary: Well I am a proud owner of a 2003 VZ800 Marauder. I had been looking for bikes online for about 3 months, and looked at over 300 bikes. I was going to get a Yamaha V-Star Custom 1100, but there was some confusion at the dealer, and they did not have ... read more

  • My '01 Marauder 800

    Jan 25, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great looking. Lot's of chrome. Quick, and handles well.
    Cons: Gas tank should be bigger. Cold blooded. Don't like the stock foot pegs.

    Summary: I was looking for a cruiser that was mid sized, reasonably priced, and reliable. The Marauder seemed to fit the bill. I bought it new in the spring of '02 (saving $1000 off the sticker) and it has provided me much enjoyment ever since. I'm a ... read more

    Pros: Great looks, good handling, lots of power for it's size
    Cons: Exhaust too quiet, handlebars are not pulled back enough

    Summary: I just bought a 2003 Suzuki Marauder VZ800. Overall this is a great machine. It has more power (and torque) that you would expect from an 800 (805cc). The bike looks awesome (except for a small reflector under the license plate that I ... read more

  • good deal, great bike

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good power+light wieght=fun on a budget
    Cons: seat, tranny, no aftermarket support,

    Summary: I bought my Marauder used for $3500. It was a completely stock 2000 model. This is my first motorcycle, and I'm not a big guy by any means (5'7", 140 lbs). In fact, the first time I had ever ridden a motorcycle was the mile and a half ride home from ... read more

    Pros: Great looks, impeccable workmanship, wonderful clutch, nice stock sound, power.
    Cons: Clunky shifting into second, cold-blooded starting, need to warm her up with the choke out.

    Summary: Spent months researching the mid-weights, then visited maybe 15 shops of all flavors. Didn't even consider the Marauder as the brochure pictures weren't flattering. Then at the last bike shop, a Suzuki one, I saw the Marauder....it was love at first ... read more

    Pros: Devilish good looks, acceleration, and chrome
    Cons: exhaust not loud enough and bad seats.

    Summary: I have owned my Marauder for two years now. Me and my wife ride every chance we get and to work when possible. Let me start with a general comment about bikes and couples. A bike or his and hers bikes is a great way for a couple to bond and enjoy each ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great handling, fun to ride, great looks, inexpensive, great around town and on back roads
    Cons: not great on highway without lots of modification, small gas tank

    Summary: I love my Marauder. This bike is great for a beginner - not too big, not too small. It is well made and sturdy. It doesn't need a lot of maintenance or upkeep, although its a good idea to clean an lubricate the chain every 600 miles or so. ... read more

    Pros: Great looks,decent price,smooth and powerful.
    Cons: None yet.....

    Summary: In my opinion, this bike is a great value.... It looks great, is very smooth and powerful, and is relatively inexpensive. I've seen reports of the transmission being a little "clunky". Second gear sometimes is, but to me it just adds to the "personality" ... read more

    Pros: Affordable classic cruiser loaded with curb appeal
    Cons: Bad riding position, asthmatic at hiway speed

    Summary: I bought a 1998 a couple years ago and use it to rip around town. Mine is cream over red. The paint is what made me get the wallet out at the Suzuki dealership. It reminds me of a Chevy Corvette on two wheels. Classic retro drag-bike styling including a ... read more

    Pros: style, power, stability, over all handling
    Cons: seat and foot pegs

    Summary: I purchased my 1999 Marauder on September 27, 2000. I purchased it used from a private owner. The bike had 3000 miles on it and the selling price was great. Before purchasing this bike I was looking for quite a few month. I looked in the ... read more

    Pros: Reliability, style, price.
    Cons: Stock seat is a brick, gas tank only looks big

    Summary: Everyone knows that most stock seats suck .. The Marauder seat is no exception. I took a 800 mile round trip on mine..and was in agony at first. Finally, I learned to lean back and the whole character of the bike changed. Once I got back I immediately ... read more

    Pros: Good mechanic, excellent ride, stable, long, low.
    Cons: Cosmetics need to be changed, pipes, mirrors, etc.

    Summary: I own the original Marauder that came out in 97'. I think they screwed up the new ones, starting with messing around with the pipes on the 98' model. Ever since then they just kept making cosmetic changes that made the bike look worse and worse. ... read more

    Pros: Powerful, comfortable and a looker
    Cons: Needs a taller top gear

    Summary: It's been years since I've owned a motorcycle, and I've never owned a new one. Not having unlimited funds, I shopped and researched everything in this price range and style. I ended up purchasing my Marauder in early July and rode it to Sturgis in ... read more
