We have performed resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) near the Cu-$$K$$ edge on various cuprate superconductors, covering underdoped to heavily overdoped regimes and focusing on charge excitations inside the charge-transfer gap. RIXS measurements with $$E_i$$= 9.003 keV on metallic La$$_{1.7}$$Sr$$_{0.3}$$CuO$$_{4}$$ and Bi$$_{1.76}$$Pb$$_{0.35}$$Sr$$_{1.89}$$CuO$$_{6+delta}$$ exhibit a dispersive intraband excitation below 4 eV, similar to that observed in the electron-doped Nd$$_{1.85}$$Ce$$_{0.15}$$CuO$$_{4}$$. This is the first observation of a dispersive intraband excitation in a hole-doped system, evidencing that both electron- and hole-doped systems have a similar dynamical charge correlation function.
