The classic motorcycles were always a solid source of inspiration for the new models. When the old school of design meets the modern trends the result is quite impressive. For instance take a look at the Suzuki Boulevard C50C which offers a perfect merge between classic and modern.

The imposing headlight, large fenders and the elegant fuel tank combine seamlessly to give the motorcycle a unique character.

But apart from looking good, the Suzuki Boulevard C50C is also packed with a booming 4-stroke, 2-cylinder, liquid-cooled, SOHC, 45° V-Twin engine that has a displacement of 805 cm3. For increased fuel efficiency, the engine is paired with a modern fuel injection system and a five speed constant mesh transmission.

It is also worthy of being mentioned that the engine is fed by a 15.5 L fuel tank that offers a pretty generous riding range.

The Suzuki Boulevard C50C is has a starting price of $8,399.

The Suzuki Boulevard C50T Classic is throwback cruiser that offers plenty of new-world technology. That’s an ideal recipe for anybody who wants a mix of both schools, especially if they can have them in one awesome package.

In terms of style, the Boulevard looks the part of a classic cruiser, complete with bold styling that stands out in a crowd. The huge body of the cruiser belies its long and low rigid-look frame. The design of the bike incorporates timeless laid-back style in the cruiser heritage, complete with rich paintwork, glittering chrome, and deep front and rear fenders with rounded ends. The bike also has a wide passenger seat that makes for comfortable two-up rides, especially for riders that like going on those long-distance joyrides.

At the heart of the Boulevard C50T Classic is a 805 cc four-stroke, SOHC V-Twin engine that comes with a compression ratio of 9.4:1 and mated to a wide-ratio five-speed transmission that features a high fifth gear ratio for relaxed highway cruising. A critical part of the engine is a 32-bit ECM that provides precise control of ignition timing and multi-hole-type injectors while ensuring quick starts and excellent drivability under all conditions. The bike also features Suzuki ’s own Dual Throttle Valve (DTV) electronic fuel-injection system that maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to mid-RPM throttle response.

As far as handling is concerned, the Boulevard C50T Classic comes with a link-type rear suspension that has been 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 adjustabililty providing 4.1" of smooth and response suspension travel.

As with most Suzuki cruisers, the Boulevard C50T Classic has the ideal blend of style, performance, and handling characteristics. All together, they lead to a bike that’s a cut above the rest in its own market.

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.

The ’M’ in the Suzuki Boulvard M109R stands for ’muscle.’ That alone should be enough to tell you what this beastly machine is all about.

The bike’s unique body styling, coupled with its incredible performance, will most definitely make you feel like you’re riding a bike that’s meant to contort your face when you’re blasting off into the road. That’s what happens when you’re sitting on top of a 1783cc, 8-valve DOHC, 54-degree, liquid-cooled, fuel injected V-Twin engine that has been designed for strong throttle response and quick acceleration while also being tuned to produce massive torque all the way from idle to redline. This translates to an acceleration that you can’t possibly believe until you feel it yourself. The performance of M109R is no laughing matter, especially if you’re the type that likes your adrenaline to be jacked up to the moon. Certain elements about the bike’s powertrain set-up include a class-leading electronic fuel injection system that features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve system (SDTV) with 56mm throttle bodies, maintaining optimum air velocity for smooth low to mid-range throttle response.

To go along with its unspeakable performance credentials, the Boulevard 109R needs to have the right handling characteristics for those awesome numbers. To that, Suzuki used a high-tensile double cradle steel frame that has been built to comfortably handle all the power and torque while delivering agile handling and a plush, smooth ride. Inverted front forks feature race-proven cartridge internals with 46mm stanchion tubes and provide 5.1" of wheel travel while a cast aluminum alloy swingarm works with a progressive shock linkage and a preload-adjustable single rear shock delivering 4.6" of wheel travel.

All boasting aside, the Suzuki Boulevard M109R is the kind of powerful cruiser riders dream about and other cruisers have nightmares about.

In terms of design, the Suzuki Boulevard S40 comes in a very attractive package, influenced by larger Boulevard models. You only need to take one look at it to realize that it bears a striking resemblance to an S83, except that it comes with "only" a single-cylinder engine. The classic design exudes a retro-vibe, particularly the ergonomically-designed handle that’s both easy to grip and comfortable to use, especially when you’re throttling out on the open road. The Boulevard S40 also comes with a custom flat handlebar design and custom-style rear view mirrors, both of which provide a very aesthetically-pleasing appearance to the bike, as does a sleek, one-piece saddle with a low seat height of just 27.6", making it an ideal bike for novice riders.

It may look the part of a svelte and agile cruiser, but make no mistake, the Boulevard S40 packs a mean punch, thanks to a 652cc, four-stroke, air-cooled, OHC, single-cylinder engine with a TSCC (Twin Swirl Combustion Chambers) cylinder head and high mass crankshaft, producing strong low-end power and torque. A smooth-shifting 5-speed transmission is complemented by a low-maintenance belt-drive system that’s quiet, durable, and simple to adjust and clean, while an electric starter with automatic decompression system has also been installed, allowing for quick and easy engine starting. Lastly, a precision electronic ignition system brings all the power in and out of the bike at an impeccably sharp rate.

Handling is also a key component of the Boulevard S40, especially when it comes to its chassis and suspension set-up. A 19" front tire and a wide 15" rear tire provides the classic cruiser look while coming with a hydraulic front disc brake and a drum-type rear brake, providing strong, reliable braking performance.

Suzuki’s Boulevard lineup may be admired thanks to models such as the C109R or M109R , but until you get to those, the S40 is most likely to become your dearest friend, especially if you’re a short person or a girl. With a very low seat height (only 27.6 inches from the ground) and a docile engine, the S40 makes for the perfect cruiser to start on and continue riding for quite some time.

In 2010, Suzuki carries on producing their big boy models without any changes apart from the ones involving color schemes and the C50 series is no exception from the rule. Not heavily refined, but enough to make a difference are the base model, the C50T and the Special Edition one, all with something special to offer.

Suzuki is set to write long history pages with the help of two Boulevard models that have been launched a couple of years ago, but only now achieve the notoriety they truly deserve. Meanwhile, the C109R and C109RT have carried on as 2010 model years, but remain the same massive bikes with great road performance and will most likely change only color schemes in the future as they do now. A little more special, the new Touring model gets white wall tires and passenger floorboards to mark the pass.

Suzuki has accorded a lot of attention to performance cruisers in these last few years and so have been introduced models such as the entry-level M50 and their ultimate demonstration of power, the M109R . But their famous Boulevard line of cruising motorcycles didn’t feature anything in between these two models, something that would fill in the big gap and keep consumers hooked to Suzuki…until last year’s Suzuki Boulevard M90. The bike carries on to 2010, so let’s find out more about it.
