The 2013 Suzuki Boulevard BOSS takes the classic treatment and applies it to their 90 inch (1,462cc) C90T delivering a custom style cruiser for $13,999.

For fourteen you get Suzuki’s first Boulevard to be factory equipped with saddlebags— along with a windshield, generous floorboards, and a road presence intended to set it from its comparably equipped But is this a bike you’d for the long haul?

In the Saddle: 800 Pound Gorilla— No, Really.

In fact, this bad boy weighs in at a scale busting 800 which becomes readily once you lift it off the sidestand and to push it just a few inches.

Squeeze the starter button, and the kicks to life with a burble. The hydraulically assisted pulls easily, and tickling the in first gear unleashes torque to make that 800 lb figure seem hard to Shift action is clean but a bit and with the engine’s strong revs it’s easy to the clutch between shifts.

But riding time makes it to acclimate to the BOSS’s deceptive to weight ratio, which it scoot along at a relatively pace when summoned.

The C90T’s riding position is and seat-like, and Suzuki’s claims the saddle enables a variety of postures rings true, as not curved enough to force you to to a certain stance. The windscreen is tall enough to shield you most of the elements— though my frame led my helmet to get quite a bit of noise on the freeway. At least it enough airflow over my lid to me from getting hit by turbulent

There’s no tachometer to convey rpms, but the gears are tall and the mill torquey enough to the bike’s motor feel mellow at highway speeds; a engine pulse is pronounced at velocities, but there’s enough during higher paced that the BOSS doesn’t too grating on the senses.

Bottom Line: Who’s the

A top view of the C90T BOSS.
