2012 Suzuki Boulevard C50T

The Suzuki Boulevard C50T differentiates itself from its brethren as a bike that offers luxurious levels of comfort and ergonomics while also boasting a powerfully tuned powertrain.

Comfortable seating has always been a trademark for Suzuki and the Boulevard C50T is no different. The wide, well-sculpted leather-textured spacious seat offers a low 27.6" seat height, and it comes with a matching touring-style backrest with unique pivoting backrest pad for increased comfort. Wide handlebars, forward-mounted floorboards, and foot controls provide a comfortable ride while large-capacity, textured-leather saddlebags with Boulevard emblems and convenient twist-lock fasteners offer plenty of storage capacity.

The Boulevard C50T is powered by a narrow 805cc, fuel injected, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder, 45-degree V-twin engine that has been tuned for exceptional low RPM power and torque. A 32-bit ECM also comes as part of the set-up, providing precise control of ignition timing and multi-hole-type injectors ensuring quick starts and excellent driveability under all conditions. Another important element to the Boulevard’s C50T is Suzuki’s Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) electronic fuel-injection system. This allows the bike to maintain optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to mid-RPM throttle response. Lastly, the Boulevard C50T comes with a wide-ratio five-speed transmission that features a high fifth gear ratio, enabling you to enjoy the cruiser’s unbridled power as you blast off into the open road.

As far as handling, the Boulevard C50T boasts of a cradle-type steel frame with telescopic forks that provide 5.5" of wheel travel. The forks also have polished aluminum sliders and polished stainless steel stanchion-tube covers for a distinct look. A link-type rear suspension is shaped to mimic the hard-tail lines of a traditional cruiser, connecting a truss-style swing arm and a single shock absorber with 7-way spring preload adjustability providing 4.1" of smooth and responsive suspension travel.

Quotes

Motorcycle Cruiser----"The riding positions fit all our testers, too, and the C50’s floorboards give additional flexibility. The C50’s bar is a bit wider, but the windshield eliminates wind pressure. There’s more wind pressure on the M50 despite its lower, narrower bar."
