Suzuki C 50



53-hp injected V-twin engine

At the of each model sits the 805cc, four-…, liquid-cooled, 45-degree V-Twin engine is now less polluting and a little bit pulling thanks to the new dual plugs on each cylinder. The constant-mesh gearbox and shaft drive proved very and reliable on previous model so they will continue used on this model and most likely on future as well.

And so did the chassis with the results. This, in front the cradle-type steel frame, forks and link-type rear offer comfortable accommodations and a ride, but as I was saying, they all and tend to be sold like motorcycles.

The Boulevard C50 is the simple a veritable classic cruiser timeless looks and even spoked wheels. Suzuki this model and fully it and they were out with the C50T, while the Special model is simply a two-tone C50 with custom wheels.

The year 2001 found adding a new model to their lineup, the VL 800 Volusia, a cruiser in the classic style and powered by a 805cc, SOHC, 8-valves, V-Twin engine. Fuel hadn’t seen its way on such at that time so the Volusia was fed through a Mikuni BDSR34 and it developed 52 hp at 6,000 rpm and 69 Nm at 3,500

Performance figures didn’t to soon and in the future years, model played around the of different color schemes and the one of seats. This last brought a Limited Edition in 2003 which was carried on for the year and also influenced the of the later Boulevard C50 Special model.

2005 was the year of changes for They launched the Boulevard of cruising motorcycles and the Volusia saw the end of one and the beginning of another as it was now manufactured and as the Boulevard C50. The touring was also there from the and the big surprise on both of these was the addition of fuel-injection. Horsepower increase that much (53 hp at rpm) while the retuning by the new fueling system led to 62 Nm at 4,000

The Special Edition model either due to the studded seats and or tribal flame paint job as the passed by.


But Suzuki the only one powerful and glorious in the cruiser class as Kawasaki has a 900 prepared for each one of the C50 models. The Vulcan 900 Classic is probably the model to be compared with the Suzuki Boulevard C50 as it features the engine type (4-…, SOHC, four-valve per cylinder, only that 98cc in order to compensate for the lack of injection. There is a five-speed but belt final drive.

is also the case of the Kawasaki 900 Classic LT and the Suzuki Boulevard while the Custom Kawi is the competing model for the Special Suzuki.

Star motorcycles are in for a piece of the pie the V Star Classic, Silverado and models. The engine is a docile air-cooled, 70-degree V-Twin; two valves per cylinder, but the different played by the small (for cruising category) powerplant is makes a difference. The same can be mentioned when it comes to as Star’s bikes feature fit and finish.

We kept Honda for the end not their cruisers are weaker or attractive, but due to the fact that the line only features a and a custom model. This the C90T without a fierce from a very capable manufacturer, but the Shadow Aero and Spirit 750 are great alternatives for the C90 and the Edition as well. Honda’s for these two is a 745cc, liquid-cooled, three valves per cylinder V-Twin and don’t expect to get injection.

Usually riders buy their hearts, but in this Suzuki’s fuel-injection system has very valuable so I don’t why the rest of the Japanese crowd evolve in that matter.

Suzuki may not have done to the engine and guess what? The isn’t any different when it to design upgrades either. as they say, it’s the things that make it For example, the fenders on all Boulevard C50 have been redesigned. precisely, these now feature flowing lines and the front covers a little less of 130mm wide front

At the rear, you’ll find the 170mm tire is still covered as on all cruising and touring but at least the new LED taillight provides it a stylish new look.

In between, the teardrop gas tank is now with a redesigned speedometer mounts on it and while we’re here it is a must mentioning about that potent engine that shines underneath the tank. This looks like a miniature compared to the one on the C109R for example, but just Suzuki offering the of it to all category of riders.

The rider is spacious and the chromed exhaust on the right rider side. chromed units are the headlight instruments, handlebars and mirrors, the telescopic forks feature sliders and polished stainless stanchion-tube covers.

Colors for the 2010 Boulevard C50 are Black and

The Touring model adds a windshield, spacious saddlebags and wall tires, but we shouldn’t about the exciting new two-tone of the 2010 model year, Blue/White.

Probably the best of C50 series is the Special Edition This one distinguishes through a of cast aluminum wheels and touring accessories, while the schemes are the same as on the standard Black and Blue.


The C50T makes a rational big and strong enough to deliver it advertises without excess. a motorcycle you can ride long and and still explain to your Motorcyclecruiser

I have to confess was a model that slipped by me and a little research was needed to me up to speed here. I am extremely with Suzuki’s Intruder and sold plenty of the 700/750/800 while working in the retail end of the industry. Fast, attractive and used Intruders never sat on the long. Mcnews


Offering diversity is THE way to competitive on the motorcycle market and surely learns this well as they offer not but three metric cruisers. But you already know. The news consists in the $7,799 MSRP for the $7,999 MSRP for the C50 Special and $9,099 for the C50T.


We say that Suzuki makes a big further with their Boulevards, but they aren’t still either. They emissions and made some tweaks here and there, to make it sound interesting still, they don’t about this too much. I they should because are some wicked bikes.
