The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 (VN900) is probably the best known cruiser in Thailand. For 2014, Yamaha Thailand will introduce the Yamaha Bolt XVS950 in Thailand for around the same price as the Kawasaki.
At the moment we have no information that any Suzuki cruiser motorcycle will be officially available soon in Thailand.
From the Honda Thailand you can also look at the new Honda CTX700NE, which will be sold at the Honda Big Wing dealers for 349,000 THB. Honda Thailand will also be selling a Dual-Clutch version which will be the Honda CTX700NDE which will cost 406,000 THB.
Other motorcycle manufacturers officially available in Thailand are Victory Motorcycles, Harley-Davidson, and Zero Engineering. Most motorcycles from this manufacturers will cost more than 1 million THB and are therefore not specified.
On the other-hand Harley-Davidson has announced that they will be launching the Harley-Davidson Street 500 and 750 which is expected to be priced around the same price as the Kawasaki and Yamaha cruisers...
"I stopped by a Yamaha display in Airport Plaza (Chiang Mai) yesterday & saw that they are now taking deposits for the Star Bolt with delivery sometime January or February 2014. Full price is 465,000 Baht."
re the Suzuki M800 Intruder.
It appears on your price list but, I have been told, is not actually available in Thailand.
Can you please clarify?
(Yes, I'm looking to buy a Cruiser but not the Vulcan.)
Some time ago, and that was even before Suzuki took control over Suzuki Thailand, the plan was to introduce the Suzuki M800 Intruder. Many months later and with nobody wanting or having the courage to take the decision which big bikes Suzuki Thailand would start selling it entered our price-list as it was once announced at a dealer meeting... Now a few years have passed and the Suzuki M800 Intruder seems to be still on our price-list... we currently are without a moderator for the price-lists so we are “a bit” outdated... Our excuses for that – in the new year we will update all the software on our website and with that it would be also much easier to update the price-lists we have...
