New Bike Evaluation 2013 Boulevard C90T B.O.S.S.

these new bike stories always easy. But I love it I go to my thesaurus and find tons of to work with. Plenty of play available for this A boss is a leader, a chief, a and a biggie (yes, my thesaurus said biggie).

Or the word can groovy, neat, cool, or bad (as in There are some underworld as well, such as in mafia and But being based so closed to New City, I wouldn’t want to any of the locals. Although in this B.O.S.S. is actually an acronym for Out Suzuki Special.

Talk literal.

You may have noticed in our section that folks myself) were wondering the hell Suzuki has been. Did it about motorcycles in the United It has been conspicuous by its absence in years on the retail two-wheeled

One might begin to think the models Suzuki offers are the muscle cruiser and the assortment of sportbikes. I’ve always of the opinion that if you don’t see an from a particular manufacturer, you should expect that working on something for next Finally, the ray of hope that is the 650 broke cover last but not much more than

This year, though, with the announcement that will discontinue its automobile in the United States, comes that all of Suzuki’s US marketing will go into motorcycle Along with that of the union” type news and the that 2013 is Suzuki’s year of selling bikes in the US the release of several new models. I told ya they were on something.

You may recall that the Suzuki C90 was available from 1998 to as an air-cooled V-twin cruiser and has absent from the lineup the few years, but the 2013 C90T isn’t just an old bike new paint. It’s a new, model marking Suzuki’s to the 1500cc/90″ segment. And hopefully one of its is to lead Suzuki back to sales dominance.

The 1500cc cruiser is a right-sized, constant with substantial demand in displacement size. This also marks the return of the C90 cruiser and M90 musclebike to Suzuki And if cleaning an all black bike is not idea of how to keep the boss then you’ll like that the standard C90T be available in two color schemes plenty of chrome.

But today all about the B.O.S.S. But then isn’t it like that in workplaces? Suzuki’s return to the arena comes in at 1500cc to be exact), with claims this is the most powerful in the 1000-1600cc segment.

Suzuki was looking to return a touring package offered as with long-range comfort and classic looks, yet not traditional in I think Suzuki nailed it. It the bike it needs to sell, strong, masculine styling, lines, and perfect proportions.

The size and footprint exudes

The C90T B.O.S.S. and M90 cruiser share a build platform, similar powertrain, frame, and components. A steel-tube frame the powerful V-twin engine. Fat front and rear, are mounted on cast-aluminum wheels. I love the

The rear is a substantial, 200mm-wide Up front, the 45mm inverted nonadjustable front forks up the bumps well. Out back, a link-type rear suspension an oil-damped, coil-over shock to a smooth, ground-hugging ride. preload adjustability isn’t for when the B.O.S.S. is loaded

I was elated to see Suzuki chose shaft drive to help the B.O.S.S. down the road — one worry while on a long A LED taillamp atop the long rear fender covers it all up. I the handling of the B.O.S.S. stable and yet it turned into corners Actually, while the B.O.S.S. low and tough, ground clearance was

Touching down the floorboards was a Unfortunately, I found the braking to be The rear brakes felt not effective at all. And I’m not convinced a front disc with a two-piston caliper on an 800-pound is a wise choice.

ABS is not available. And while there any emergency stop situations on my ride, I was hoping for plenty of notice when it came to down.

Pushing the B.O.S.S. is something we’d all like to do, but in case it’s a hard job 800 pounds). Suzuki’s 90″ (1462cc), liquid-cooled, SOHC V-twin out plenty with 77.8 hp at rpm and 96.6 ft-lbs. of torque at rpm. It utilizes a 9.5:1 ratio and four valves per with dual spark in each head. The fuel is fed via three separated airboxes, the technology used in M109R so we know that works

The Suzuki dual throttle (SDTV) throttle body is Mikuni with a 42mm The C90T actually has more than its sistership M90 thanks to cam spec differences. However, I the C90T needs to be in the correct and is unforgiving for every application of If not, dreaded engine was pretty easy to find, required immediate gear

For example, during my highway 65 mph in fourth gear was comfortable, but in the bike starts vibrating a Anything over 66 mph I found gear most comfortable, and the pulls well.

The exhaust pipe layout is a slash-cut exhaust producing a rumbling sound and is  finished in black for a tough look. The clutch assist system reduces the force needed to in the clutch lever and smoothes by reducing pressure on the clutch under deceleration. For upshifts the increases pressure on the clutch when accelerating.

The B.O.S.S.’s produces nice shifts, and I the heel-toe shifter; it works and doesn’t get in the way.

The only on the B.O.S.S. is found on the headlight signal lights, gas cap, trim, saddlebag hinge, covers, tank emblem, and brake pedal. Other that, it’s all sinister The relatively large 4.8 gallon is great for long range.

aft of that is a broad, flat with plenty all day comfort. The has a seat that’s flatter the M90’s for better long-range The C90’s floorboards are large for comfort, and the handlebar is wider and to the rider than the M90’s as well. Just under the resides a multifunction, tank-mounted gauge. It’s a nice layout with an easily gear indicator.

An attractive, lens covers the large speedometer and the entire gage It also features a clock always remains on, fuel odometer, and dual trip The backlight illumination is adjustable, and nighttime illumination could be (even turned way up), was quite readable.

I like that the bike is with hazard light

Suzuki was pretty proud of its designed side bags and as well it should be, this is the Suzuki Boulevard with hard sidecase. The ultra-wide hug the body contours nicely, not an afterthought. A left-side protection bar is partially hidden from The inner lid at the rear of each bag is to prevent air and dust from the bag.

Each side has a carrying capacity with the bag capable of holding 24.5 and the left bag 26 liters. They’re of impact-resistant ABS plastic covered in to match the seats. The wide provide easy entry and to the outside, and the cases can fit a semi-full inside. What I at first was an awkward bag mechanism that mandatory use of the key to open and close the turned out to be quite efficient.

I was off the bike and needed something the bag, I knew where the key was at all And when I was riding, I knew wasn’t any chance of an unlocked bag opening. If the bike was running, the key was in the ignition, therefore the bag lids definitely locked.

A single helmet lock is accessible just to the inside of the bag, a separate steering lock is nice to find, and a lockable storage space the left side cover.

The is an attractive, affordable, large-displacement with plenty of room for the to accessorize. And while there are and nasty words we usually use the term boss (usually is involved), happily, I have to associate with this I’ve got nothing but nice to say. It’s the one boss you mind going on a trip

Now that’s a rarity. RB
