2013 Suzuki Boulevard C50 Special Edition


Posted on by  

The Suzuki Boulevard C50 Special Edition features a distinctive classic design which helps it stand out from the crowd. We especially like the motorcycle’s flowing lines of the kicked-out front end, the pullback handlebars and the elegant, teardrop fuel tank.

Needless to say that you won’t complain about the riding position as the Boulevard C50 Special Edition is fitted with a pretty comfortable saddle and a set of capable suspensions which are able to soak most of the bumps without affecting the ride quality.

Talking about suspensions, the motorcycle is equipped with 33-degree rake front forks which offer a long 140mm wheel travel and a progressive rear suspension with mono-shock absorber.

The Suzuki Boulevard C50 Special Edition is built around a 805cc, 4-stroke, 2-cylinder, liquid-cooled, SOHC, 45 degree V-Twin engine which is mated on a capable five speed transmission.

The Suzuki Boulevard C50 Special Edition is available in two color schemes ( Candy Dark Cherry Red / Glass Sparkle Black and Mystic Silver Metallic / Glass Splash White) and has a starting price of $8,799.
