Re: Suzuki C-50 Trike

Under powered, and the front end shakes between 30 and 55 badly if the so-called damper isn’t set just right, and the trunk is a joke, and rides like a 1940 dump truck. A guy here that had one, couldn’t get rid of it fast enough. He went straight to a newer Goldwing.

Re: Suzuki C-50 Trike

I get asked all of the time what the difference is in ride and feel of the various Trikes, and bikes that I come in contact with, and most of the time just have to say; If I were blind folded, and had on ear muffs I cant tell which is which except on a Harley the vibration gives it away I rode the Jackal, and Tramp ( the Leahman version of a Suzuki Trike ) The C-90 version was ok in the power area not great but ok. the C-50 a total waist of a good cruiser bike. Now this is only how I feel about the C-50.

I also think that Leahman and other manufactures totally ignored a segment of bikes that would have lined their pockets, which is the C-90/1500 Intruder as a bike market. I get calls all of the time on that bike. Leahmans mistake was making it Factory Only Which meant the Intruder 1500 was left out.

I have an 07 Suzuki C50/Lehman, bought brand new in 07. It’s not a bad starter trike, but comfort depends on your size, how/where you ride, etc. I went with the C50 for the same reason as you – to try triking before investing a lot of money. I have now spent 3 seasons wishing I’d gone with the C90.

I ride highway to work (49 miles each way), and I can feel mine sluggish at times. I can keep up with almost everything I’m around, but it does feel like a struggle at times, almost like it wishes there was a 6th gear. Here in New England – pot hole heaven! – the straight axle is a bit rough too. I’m about 150lbs, 5’5, so it fit general comfort were fine for me (I did add risers, although I rode them one season without I was ok)

There is a low speed head wobble, but mine goes away at about 30+. Until about a year ago, only the C90 had a damper, to the best of my knowledge (and I had called various Lehman dealers to ask). And reverse for this trike is not an option from any manufacturer, period.

The trunk? Yes, definitely a joke! Weird V-shaped opening makes it difficult to put much of anything into it, although I HAVE managed small groceries etc, when necessary.

I’ve even managed to put an overnight bag into it. Unless you only wear a beanie, you won’t be putting a helmet into it, that’s for sure!

Overall, I enjoy my trike but I can tell you in all honesty that as soon as I can find some money, I’m DEFINITELY movin’ on up. I should probably mention that this is my first bike/trike – I rode as a passenger a couple of times in my teens, and nothing until 2006 MSF course (I’m 50+ now).
