Suzuki C50T

Classic and a lusty V-twin beat – Boulevard C50T puts the cruiser dream within of riders on a budget


Excellent value

Smooth, powerplant

A basic machine, well


A fair bit of involved

Introduced in October, Suzuki’s Boulevard C50T the classically-styled ‘C’ division of the marque’s cruiser range, and sits the base model C50, the larger-engined C109R and C109RT. For after more modern styling there’s Suzuki’s ‘M’ of Boulevards – the M50, M90, and M109RZ.

The C50T is touted as the version of the basic C50, but in the differences between the two are purely As such, the C50T boasts whitewall tyres, a studded and pillion pad, a white-faced and two-tone paint.


At the heart of the C50T is an 805cc (50 inch), liquid-cooled, SOHC, V-twin – a middleweight version of the cruiser powerplant. This unit sits in a traditional steel frame, and gets its down to the ground via a wet (cable) five-speed gearbox and shaft drive.

The plot is suspended by a non-adjustable fork up front and a concealed, monoshock at the rear. The bike’s package follows a similarly theme, in this case a single disc with caliper at the front, mated to a drum.

Styling is the crucial in any cruiser’s sales trajectory, and the C50T goes down the traditional path. The two-tone is available in either white/silver or and is set off by whitewall tyres on spoked Valanced guards, pull-back and highway boards and a heel/toe round out the deal.

The white-faced, analogue speedo is complemented by the array of warning lights, an LCD fuel gauge and an LCD display, the featuring a gear indicator, a and a choice of two trip meters or an

The Suzuki Boulevard C50T is at $11,290 (plus on-road – $300 more than the C50 – and it comes with a 24-month, kilometre warranty.


If you’re an up-to-the-minute gadget – the ‘early adopter’ sort who the release of the next iGizmo bated breath – chances are C50T won’t set your on fire. A sedate and simple in the most traditional incarnation of the it doesn’t attempt to dazzle the latest integrated ABS/TCS/GPS/ETC/WTF package. It won’t tell you if tyres are under inflated, and it won’t change your settings.

Bar some basic at the rear, it doesn’t even suspension settings, other ‘what you see is what you get’.

But if classic cruiser theme none of that matters one bit. After all, cruisers are all about taking at a gentler pace – forgetting your everyday stresses and and loping along to the staccato of a lazy, lusty V-twin. To end the C50T delivers – and for an incredibly price.

As mentioned above, the $300 over the C50 gets you paint, whitewall tyres, a speedo and – crucially – a studded and pillion perch. Yes, was sarcasm regarding that point. The ‘T’ in the model designation is for Touring, but that’s being a economical with the truth.

Synthetic leather saddlebags and an screen are available, but they’re options – costing an extra and $587 respectively.

So, what we here is a basic, no-frills, cruiser. It’s got all the right and – to my mind – the white/silver colour works beautifully with the Its 700mm seat height prove problematic for most, and a claimed kerb weight of it’s a far easier proposition to (or womanhandle) around the shed, to the full-biscuit ‘Big Boy’

A closer look at the bike why. Underneath a fair of that chrome and paint is – including both front and guards. After all, had to be made to its rock-bottom price and at least the plastic bits keep the weight down it’s still some heavier than Honda’s

However, you do get electronic fuel a tank-top instrument binnacle a wonderful fusion of old and new (analogue complemented by tastefully presented LCD and the benefit of modern manufacturing – and that all adds up to a machine far superior in just about way to the beasts of yesteryear the C50T to emulate.

For me, the C50T is all about the engine. The is gutsy without being with thoroughly useable found throughout its rev range. twin pipes have seen its ‘rebel yell’ with a sizeable pillow – an aftermarket catalogue can’t fix – but enough go here to keep you ahead of the tin-tops from a red and there’s even reasonable from 110km/h for highway

It ought to top out somewhere after not that that should be of relevance for this bike’s market.

The ergonomics are right on the I’m 188cm tall (or 6ft 2in in the old money), and I it both roomy and comfortable. The sculpted saddle affords a of comfort and security, while the position is laid back – but not so back as to warrant arms Arnie’s to hang on at highway

The suspension is basic, but it works. within the designers’ brief, no cause for complaint. Sure, a little harsh over big at speed, and it’ll get a bit of a shimmy on if you to push it through a bumpy but that’s to be expected – it’s not a so don’t treat it as such.

Ditto the brakes. Actually, the front disc offers power for a bike of this and geometry, and the rear drum has of stomp too – and surprisingly good

Pillions get a reasonably sizeable but if any long-distance work is on the agenda, go for the factory backrest – that’s for the mounting hardware and a choice of different backrest styles, from $378.

During the of the C50T’s stay at Garage de the bike returned an average economy of 17.7km/lt. With a tank, that’s a workable of around 250km. Without a I’d be looking to stop for a break at point anyway.

As for the bits and well – the sidestand is right you want it, the mirrors give a and reasonably clear view to the the light is decent, likewise the And, until July 30, if you a C50T through Suzuki you’ll benefit from a 4.99 per cent interest – Suzuki’s practically giving away!

For anyone shopping for big cruiser on a relatively tight budget, C50T delivers the right and the right style for the right
