2014 Suzuki Boulevard M90


Posted on by  

Except for a new paint job (Metallic Thunder Gray), the Suzuki Boulevard M90 didn’t receive any other modification for 2014.

The motorcycle’s center piece is represented by the same old 1462cc, 4-stroke, 2-cylinder, liquid-cooled, OHC unit. The engine features a broad torque delivery so you can expect to a fairly enjoyable ride every time you fire it up. Joining the powertrain is a six-speed transmission that’s been especially tailored for the M90. You also get a pretty generous fuel tank that holds a full 4.76 gallons (18 liters) of fuel.

The ride and handling department brings together a steel tube frame with a hidden rear shock absorber and an inverted telescopic fork, all of which combine to deliver a smooth handling and great stability at high-speeds.

The Suzuki Boulevard M90 is offered with a base price of $11,199.

2014 Suzuki Boulevard M90 Features and Benefits:

Engine:

• A 1462cc long-stroke, four-valve DOHC, V-Twin engine features single overhead cams provides massive torque delivery and efficient fuel economy.

• Specialized chrome exhaust system fed from equal length headers produce a meaty V-Twin rumble.

• Suzuki’s class-leading electronic fuel injection system features the Dual Throttle Value (SDTV) as well as an engine management system to provide smooth throttle response and fuel efficiency.

• Utilizes nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) to provide strong and smooth chrome on the upper compression and oil control piston rings to reduce friction and improve sealing.

• Dual spark plugs for each cylinder contribute to proper ignition and efficient fuel economy.

• Effective engine management system and emissions control measures allow the M90 to meet the latest emission standards.

• A spring loaded scissor type split primary drive gear mounted on the crankshaft also reduces mechanical noise.

• Suzuki’s proven PAIR system uses a solenoid valve controlled by the engine management system to inject fresh air from the airbox into the exhaust ports, igniting any unburned hydrocarbons and reducing carbon monoxide emissions.

• Each aluminum alloy cylinder is plated with SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) nickel phosphorus silicon carbide coating which reduces friction and increases heat transfer, durability and ring sealing.

• Aluminum-alloy slipper pistons have cutaway sides to reduce friction and each piston carries three rings. Each piston rides on a chrome-moly steel connecting rod, which is shot peened to improve durability and strength.

• An automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) system improves cold starts and stabilizes an idle engine under various conditions.

• To reduce mechanical noise, each cylinder head’s cam cover is separated from the cam bearing caps, and a rubber gasket is used between the cylinder head and the cam cover.

Transmission Features:

• Power is delivered through a wide ratio five speed transmission and a shock reducing damper, through a clean running, reliable drive shaft to the rear wheel.

• Large flywheels help smooth out low rpm power pulses, as does a spring loaded primary drive damper bolted to the end of the crankshaft.

• Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) makes for efficient clutch operation and a lighter pull.

Chassis Features:

• The M90 features a steel tube frame with a hidden rear shock absorber, for the look of a classic rigid hardtail without the accompanying rough ride.

• Tastefully chromed engine covers, air cleaner covers, shaft drive secondary cover, swingarm pivot cover and exhaust system heat shields give the M90 an exciting look.

• Inverted 43mm-outer-tube front forks deliver 130mm (5.1 in) of wheel travel.

• Dual fully floating 290mm front disc brakes with dual-piston calipers; 275mm rear disc brake with a single dual-piston caliper.

• The swingarm is also built from strong steel tubing and incorporates the driveshaft on the left side.

Additional Features:

• The long stretched fuel tank holds a full 4.76 gallons (18 liters) of fuel.

• The multi reflector headlight features a 60/55w halogen high/low beam bulb. The passing light feature both beams are illuminated.

• The M90 comes with a long, wide, and well-cushioned seat. Similarly, the comfortable passenger seat is easily replaced with a Suzuki tail section cover for solo rides.

• Further ride quality on the M90 is produced by specifically designed Bridgestone tires featuring a wide 120/70ZR18M/C (59W) front and 200/50ZR17M/C (75W) rear.

• The pulled-back handlebars are positioned within a short distance from the seat which are ergonomically designed to improve the machine interface, adding to rider comfort.

• Long, chrome-plated sidestand is designed and positioned to help make it easier to move the parked bike up off the stand.
