2020 Suzuki V-Strom 1050

2020 Suzuki V-Strom 1050

A New Rally-Style Look, Updated Electronics, And Upgraded Engine Performance Are Part Of The Package For 2020

Suzuki unveiled its new V-Strom 1050 line at the 2019 Milan show with an aggressive new look and expanded capabilities meant to make it easier to range hither and yon over a variety of surfaces. In addition to the new rally-style look, updated electronics and upgraded engine performance are part of the package for MY2020. The V-Strom 1050 serves as the platform for the top-shelf “XT” models but even the stock base model comes packed with upgraded electronics and net-new tech to make it attractive and competitive within the adventure bike market.

2020 Suzuki GSX-R1000

It’s A Technological Showcase On Two Wheels

Suzuki improved its GSX-R1000 ahead of MY2020 in a bid to “reclaim the King of Sportbikes crown” as the factory so succinctly puts it. This rebuild comes close on the heels of the last revamp that landed just a couple short years ago, but it adds some significant features, most of which can be found “under the hood” or in the electronics suite. A couple of tweaks to the frame tune handling characteristics while the cornering ABS feature and variable valve-timing engine carries over from the previous generation. All in all, Suzuki turns in a very streetworthy racebike that’s nothing short of a technological showcase on two wheels.

2018 - 2019 Suzuki GSX-S1000

The Beauty Of A Gixxer Engine In A Naked Chassis

Engine upgrades joined other improvements in the 2018 model year as Suzuki pushes to keep its sport-standard-sector momentum going with the GSX-S1000. The family tree branched yet again with the new-in-2018, blackout GSX-S1000Z and Suzuki dropped the “F” in favor of the “FZ” for last year. The family now has even more of what it takes to dominate the street with a Gixxer engine in a naked bike chassis.

Which are the Highest revving production motorcycles ever made?

Which are the Highest revving production motorcycles ever made?

Here’s our list of the top screamers rolling out of the production floors

Motorcycles engines are known for their high-revving nature. Since they are limited in size and slapping them with massive big-block motors like the ones you see on automotives is a non-option, they compensate for making that big power by revving higher than most cars out there. For most motorcycles, 8000 to 11000 rpm’s are a standard affair, and all current sports bikes rev happily at these ranges and push the redline a wee bit more too.

But you are not here for these, are you? Well, fret not. Top Speed has got you covered. Although emission laws make things like those an impossible dream today, the motorcycles we are featuring here will give you a glimpse of that very high revving creation of our pasts. And it all starts with the Big four’s from Japan. But of course!

2015 - 2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 / Boulevard C50T

2015 - 2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 / Boulevard C50T

Suzuki’s Tried-And-True Middleweight Cruiser and Tourer

Suzuki unveiled the Boulevard C50 back in 2005 after renaming its “Volusia” bike of prior model years. The C50 and C50T carry straight through into 2020 with a mid-displacement engine to serve as Suzuki’s mid-size cruiser and weekend tour bike. Smooth acceleration and comfortable seating combine with laced wheels and classic styling to keep the C50s on the list of middleweight contenders in the two-wheeled market.

2015 - 2020 Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S.

The Epitome Of The ’Boulevard Bruiser’

Introduced as the bad-ass brother of Suzuki’s M109R, the Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S. carries forward into MY20 with its 109 cubic inch (1,783 cc) engine. Yeah, B.O.S.S. stands for ’Blacked Out Special Suzuki’, but I’m gonna call it ’Blacked Out Super Sweet’. It might not be the fastest cruiser on the market, but it is definitely a power-cruiser and it really wants to go when you let out the clutch.

2015 - 2018 Suzuki GSX-R750

It’s Certainly Not For The Faint Of Heart

Suzuki keeps improving and expanding its signature supersport series, and the 2020 GSX-R750 carries the torch first ignited by the original Gixxer 750 all the way back in 1984. Granted, the “late model” Gixxers dropped the steel frame in favor of aluminum, and the air-cooled engine has been replaced with a jacketed mill, but the overall mission for the bike remains the same: to provide the general public with the most race-ready production bike available for legal use on the street. Of course, the rest of the market has caught up to Suzuki and the supersport segment is flooded with similarly capable rides — and a good number of more capable sleds — though the most race-tastic of them are far more expensive than the $12K-ish GSX-R750.

2015 - 2019 Suzuki Boulevard M50

2015 - 2019 Suzuki Boulevard M50

It’s A Muscle-Bike Look With A Tame Attitude

Suzuki’s Boulevard M50 cruiser carries into 2019 with more of that custom American style that made it popular ever since it evolved from the old Intruder. Low-slung good looks join the 42-horsepower, 805 cc V-twin and faux-rigid frame for a package that’s meant to drive the imaginations of entry-level riders who might appreciate the style but be uninterested in worshiping at the Altar of Harley. Moderate power and a low seat height makes it appropriate for the young and/or inexperienced, and the lack of excessive electronic fandanglery makes it relatively easy to service and maintain, which is always a bonus for the uninitiated.

2015 - 2019 Suzuki Boulevard C90T

It’s Your Basic No-Frills Tourer Lite

Cruisers and touring bikes go hand in hand for that relaxed, comfortable ride you get. The Boulevard C90T from Suzuki is the touring version of the C90 that was dropped after the 2013 model year. Leather-look — not real leather, just leather textured — hard saddlebags and an ample windscreen give the C90T that "I’m ready for the road" look along with a 1,462 cc engine and five-speed transmixer.

2016 - 2020 Suzuki DR-Z400S / DR-Z400SM

Suzuki Still Has Carbureted Dual Sports

Pitting the fuel-injection fans against the carburetor fans, we score a point for the latter with the DR-Z400S and DR-Z400SM from Suzuki. Fuel injection hasn’t yet made an appearance in Suzuki’s dual-sport lineup, which was a good thing or a bad thing, depending on which side of the fence you’re on. For 2020, the DR-Z siblings haven’t yet been touched by the FI update. Sharing the same engine as the 500EXC from KTM, the DR-Zs come on a different chassis with progressive-link rear suspension. The “SM” — the SuperMoto of the family — and the “S” feature a six-liter air box with quick-release fasteners trouble-free access to the air filter and special low profile mirrors that rotate hoping to avoid damage, both are pluses when you’re playing in the dirt.

2014 - 2020 Suzuki Burgman 200

Small Enough To Be Economical, Big Enough To Be A Worthy Commuter

Mature, modern looks greet the eye as Suzuki rolls its business-tastic Burgman 200 over into MY2020. In spite of its diminutive powerplant, the Burgman 200 carries itself with a definite maxi-scoot appeal. Motorcycle-like suspension components and safety equipment boost its commuter capabilities with an increase in overall ride quality over your typical scooter-type vehicle, so yeah, this ain’t your typical 200.
