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.

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.

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.

The Old New-School Boulevard Bruiser

Around the turn of the century, the cruiser style had evolved into fat tires, lots of chrome, wide bodies and pegs out front to give you that almost slouched, relaxed riding posture. Since then, cruiser style has cycled back to "old school." They’ve lost some weight and slimmed down, creating a low and lean version of a sport look. If your vision of what a cruiser should be is stuck in the fat tires and wide body — think of it as "old new-school" — Suzuki has the Boulevard M90 that’s right up your alley.

If You Wait Long Enough, Everything Comes Back In Style

Suzuki pushes the venerable Boulevard S40 line into the 2019 model year with naught but a few extra touches to the paint. In fact, little has really changed with this ride since it came out in 1988 under the LS650 “Savage” moniker, and that honest simplicity is one of the main draws for this compact sled. Unfortunately, therein lies one of its biggest flaws as well. Air-cooled and carbureted, I imagine its low 652 cc displacement is the only reason it is able to meet emissions, and I fully expect tightening regulations to eventually strangle this line. At the very least, said laws may force it into the 21st century with fuel injection and a water jacket and radiator, but that’s speculation. Today, I’m going to delve into what we know to be true and take a look at the brushed-up S40 as it sits for MY19.

2015 Suzuki Boulevard S40

Lightweight cruisers have always been a staple in Suzuki’s motorcycle lineup, as shown by the longevity of the Boulevard S40, even if it didn’t always carry that name.

When Suzuki began building lightweight cruisers in the mid 80’s, the bike was christened with the name “Savage.” That name lasted until 2004 when Suzuki decided to give it a clean slate. Part of that clean slate was renaming the bike, which of course led to it now being called the Boulevard S40.

Whatever name it goes by, the Boulevard S40 has stood the test of time, largely because it gave customers a chance to experience multiple styling and handling segments in just one bike.

In a lot of ways, the Boulevard S40 carried that versatility with it proudly. Some folks refer to it as an entry-level cruiser, and while its lightweight characteristics does lend some fact to that belief, the Boulevard S40 also has that classic retro Americana look that fits right in with those hulking cruisers of yesteryear.

Performance-wise, it’s not the fastest and most powerful bike in the world. Far from it, really. But what it lacks in power, it more than makes up for in a lot of things.
