Checked the 'net and couldn't find anything about it yet, but did find this about a 2012 model currently sold in Australia. Could this be coming to North America?

EDIT: Just realized that if you click on the video links in the Australian write-up it takes you to videos that describe it as a 2013 SUZUKI INTRUDER C1500T and the first one staes that it is a US equipped model shown.

Looks like a new engine as it is water cooled. I believe that the old C90 was air cooled, wasn't it?

That looks fantastic!!!

I have seen one today called M1500. Aparently the guy had it for 5 months. Check the UK Suzuki - it is listed there.

I drink to forget???

I don't like the blacked out look.. Looks cheap like gloss paint was too hard for them..
I donno Just don't like the look overall..

It ain't getting what you want..It's wanting what u got!

It's not my style either, but I do like to see them coming out with something new. It seems like the entire Boulevard line has gotten a little stale.

Bike makers and colors continues to baffle me also.
All brands are coming with a mid size bagger.
Honda has the 1300 Interstate (bags and windshield), silver only.
Suzuki has the new 1500 (bags and windshield), black only.
Both of these have faux leather covers hardbags in black.
Yamaha is bringing the 1300 Deluxe, painted hardbags and fairing, but only in blue. This is a beautiful (my opinion) design but why only blue.

How expensive can it be to offer a few color choices??

This was first discussed here a few weeks ago: 2013 c1500t I don't usually like the blacked-out look but I like in on this bike. I wonder how the C1500t will match up vs. the Nomad 1600 (or even an older 1500) ?

Will be in stock this year

I spoke to a Suzuki dude at Dallaas motorcycle show Saturday. He said the C1500T would be introduced to dealers later this month at a meeting in Vegas. He said it has a newer 1500 engine, Not the C90 engine. Dealers should be seeing them before the end of this year.

He also said more of the Suzuki line will come back into stock; V-Strom 1000, a Super Motard, and more...

*Caveat; American Suzuki Motor Corp. just filed for bankruptcy to shed its dreadful cars and car dealers. They intend to still sell bikes, ATVs, and outboards but it will all depend on how things go in court.

Saw this on the 1500 forum last month and general consensus was that it is "fughly".

Never much cared for general consensus I kind of go my own way n do my own thing. I like what I see here. Might not like it as much when I see it n person, then again I might like it more.

May God bless you and keep you
