Features

Chassis Features

  • Strong, double-cradle steel frame supports a chassis ready for cruising or a full-on tour.
  • Generation styling incorporates visual cues from American cruiser heritage: rich paintwork, glittering chrome, and deep front and rear fenders with sculpted ends.
  • Link-type rear suspension is shaped to mimic the hard-tail lines of a traditional cruiser, connecting a truss-style swingarm and a single shock absorber with seven-way spring preload adjustability, providing 4.1 inches of smooth and responsive suspension travel.
  • A kicked-out, 33-degree rake and long 65.2-inch wheelbase provide a smooth, comfortable ride.
  • Stout telescopic front forks deliver generous 5.5 inches of smooth wheel travel.
  • Wide handlebars, forward-mounted floorboards, and leather-textured seats provide a comfortable ride around town and on the highway.
  • A wide 15-inch rear tire and matching 16-inch front tire are mounted to bright, spoke-style wheels for a classic cruiser look.
  • Hydraulic front disc and drum-type rear brakes provide strong, reliable braking performance.
  • The wide, deeply cushioned seat has a low 27.6-inch seat height that’s ideal for comfortable cruising and confident stops.
  • Wide passenger seat makes for comfortable two-up rides. Its stepped location on the rear fender allows passengers to see over the rider’s shoulder.
  • The instrument cluster includes a convenient gear-position indicator, a large fuel meter, and a clock.
  • A bright multi-reflector headlight is paired with a durable, efficient, and compact LED tail light.
  • Rear turn signals are mounted at the base of the rear fender to allow room for adding saddlebags.

Engine Features

  • Narrow, 805cc, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder, 45-degree, V-twin engine is tuned for exceptional low rpm torque.
  • Sculpted engine features polished aluminum and chrome covers that complement the visually striking cylinders with symmetrical cooling fins.
  • Offset crankpins bring optimally balanced firing intervals and create a signature V-twin rumble.
  • Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) electronic fuel-injection system maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low- to mid-rpm throttle response.
  • Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS) automatically sets the throttle-valve opening during cold engine starts by monitoring coolant temperature.
  • Cutting-edge 3D-mapped digital ignition system using a throttle-position sensor helps boost the hallmark big V-twin low-down torque.
  • Chromed and staggered dual exhaust system mounted on the right side of the engine is tuned for responsive torque delivery, providing a deep, rumbling exhaust note.
  • A wide-ratio five-speed transmission features a high fifth-gear ratio for relaxed highway cruising.
  • Low-maintenance shaft drive is clean-running and has minimal torque reaction as it efficiently transmits power to the wide 15-inch rear tire.

Key Features

  • Candy Daring Red or Glass Sparkle Black paint with updated graphics augment the Boulevard’s classic posture.
  • Fifty cubic inch (805cc), 45-degree V-twin engine rumbles through dual pipes as it smoothly puts down power that’s at home in town or out on the highway.
  • With a light pull, the clutch feeds engine power to the smooth-shifting five-speed transmission and out to the clean shaft drive.
  • Riders settle in behind wide, buckhorn-style handlebars, with feet comfortably on forward-mount floorboards, while sitting on a plush seat that’s a short 27.6 inches above the ground.
  • The classically styled 4.1-gallon fuel tank complements the large, valance fenders that hover over the wide 15-inch rear and 16-inch front tires mounted on spoke-style chrome wheels.
  • Brushed, stainless steel covers shield the stout front fork, whereas a hidden, link-style rear shock smooths the ride while giving the bike an old-school, hard-tail look.

Other Features

  • 12-month limited warranty. Longer coverage periods with other benefits are available through Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP).
