I’ve never wanted to own a motorcycle, but a 3,200-mile trip summer on a 2007 Suzuki C50T may have changed all This model is identical to popular C50 classic cruiser but with extras like a saddlebag and backrest to make it a I found the bike extremely easy to handle at low and high smooth through the gears, mechanically and good looking to

The first thing I noticed the C50T was how easy it is to maneuver at speeds. It took corners in low gear and parked easily. One the C50T is so easy to handle is the seat height is 27.6 which allows 5-foot-6-inch me to be with my knees bent.

In this position, I can support the securely when stopped or up.

We rode every day for nearly weeks through Montana, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Columbia, giving me plenty of to evaluate the Suzuki on comfort. once was my … sore, after 300-plus mile on highways. The windshield kept me being blown around at speeds; I felt some in the handlebars but nothing to complain and the leather seat curved around my rear.

I had never used footboards and I was surprised by how much I liked Other bikes I ride high ground clearances and pegs placed above When riding with my on the pegs, my legs are bent at a angle, causing pain in my right knee. But as a touring that isn’t meant to be on gravel, the ground clearance on the is only 5.5 inches and the footboards just above that.

Besides the windshield, the tourer what the T stands for) is with two chrome-studded leather and a passenger back rest. I see over the top of the windshield as opposed to it; its curves deflected the air nicely from my helmet, so I didn’t get the whiplash that I’ve with other windshields. The leather bags were enough to hold a lot of gear.

The covers snap tightly in places, but the leather isn’t On rainy days on our trip, soaked through my side from underneath wetting the layer inside. (The solution is to put your items in bags, which you then in the side bags.)

The bike’s engine isn’t overly but it does emit a throaty when accelerating. Fuel derived from Suzuki’s sportbike line, kept the running smoothly. I never had a with the engine or trouble it.

For a relatively heavy bike pounds without gas in the tank), gas was quite good, more 40 mpg.

The 5-speed transmission operated and I was able to shift through the and bring the bike up to highway speeds quickly. In first the cruiser has plenty of torque, but I rode at slow speeds in gear without stalling the

The C50T has sufficient power for about every situation and strain when I took it up to 80 mph or speeds. But rolling on the throttle in 5th didn’t give me the sudden I like when pulling out to cars in front of me. By downshifting to I gained the power I needed for

For those more familiar a bike’s displacement listed in centimeters, this 50 cubic motor is equal to 819 cubic putting the C50 in the 800cc middleweight

I found the front hydraulic and back drum brakes reliable during the trip. In a of potentially dicey traffic I made several high-speed quickly and smoothly without the tire locking. The suspension minor road bumps than larger hurdles and but again, I’m used to the resilient dual-sport suspensions.

WRN Recommendation

Equipped with and saddlebags, the Suzuki C50T is an bike to trade up to after several months or a year on that 250cc or 500cc bike. You’ll get a tour-ready at a decent price. More riders can appreciate the top notch performance, easy handling and again, at a fair price.

But for who don’t expect to ride distances often, the nearly C50 could be a better choice for less.
