Ample Wind Protection

1462cc SOHC Engine

Comfortable Seat

Large Floorboard Foot Rests

The C90T B.O.S.S. is the first SUZUKI BOULEVARD to come from the factory as a blacked out model. It comes with hard saddlebags that are made of durable, impact-resistant ABS plastic under stylish covers custom-matched to the seats. They’re designed as part of the bike, not as luggage add-ons.

It reminds me of an HD road king classic, but with a less powerful engine, smaller saddlebags, way less range, and 1 less gear in the transmission.

I like the look of it. But then..I really like the look of classic cruisers.

I don't understand the "blacked-out" trend in cruisers. A traditional cruiser ought to be shiny, or at least bright in the case of a matte finish, and black ought to be used minimally for accent. Maybe that's just me though.

Other than that though, I can't complain about this bike. It's a solid, tasteful cruiser and I'm a fan of the Boulevard line, and although I think a 1400 is just a little on the 'compensating' side, the right salesperson could snooker me into buying one. Not THIS one -- I'm firmly in the M camp. But a 1400, maybe.

Definitely Cool.

Beautiful bike, comes ready to go with bags and a windshield that would certainly be a pretty penny aftermarket, and a couple pretty pennies more to get matched to your Suzi paint job. Practical enough to ride to work and pack a lunch, roadtripping, yet sporty enough to have some fun. I could go either way with the black sceme. I'd ride one, half the price of a Harley, and every bit as much fun.

I voted: Cool

It's quite a nice bike...they have one in the showroom here in Red Deer. Comfy and good riding position, fully outfitted and a decent price....Hmmm...could maybe see on in my garage to go with my toy!! As for the blacked out look, I prefer it to chrome...not a fan of polishing, but washing is just fine with me. The only change I would have made is to put one exhaust pipe on each side and bigger bags, but that's not a deal breaker.

Later.

I was on the fence with this one. I can't think of anything interesting about it. Even the all-black paint job on a cruiser isn't exactly radical. I voted uncool simply because I couldn't really find anything cool about it.

I like it, and i think a lot of people like the all black. I'm a little biased though since i have a C109. Decent price point, liquid cooled, shaft drive, 77.8hp @ 4800rpm and 96.6ft lbs of torque at 2,600rpm. Wasn't sure but didn't think a road king would have more hp than this Suzuki and after looking it up i was right 63hp at 5,200rpm and 93.7ft lbs torque at 3,000rpm not that it matters I really like road kings they are good looking bikes. The above numbers are for 88ci, 103 ci has appox. same numbers as this bike.

I'm a bit surprised in myself - I voted Awesome!

You guys know I'm not a cruiser chick or a big-bike chick but something about this bike really appeals to me. I will NEVER own it but if it was in the parking lot I'd take a good long look at it. I absolutely love the blacked out look! (I know it's getting common, but for some reason I really like it on this particular model).

I voted: COOL.

$13,999 eh? Not bad at all.

I am not a fan of black bikes. (yes, I own a flat black bike but I'm always itching to polish it). Black bikes are hard to see at night and that is bad for a rider even though black is a very cool color for a bike. Suzuki didn't do bad with this one, it looks mean, aggressive and stylish. A lot less chrome to polish up. Chrome adds weight and takes a bit to buff up nicely but IMO looks great in the sun. However, all black, easy to wash and go. :D

Now I am very shocked to find that the C90T version (below) is the SAME price and the SAME weight as the all blacked BOSS. Usually... no actually always, a no-chrome bike costs less and weighs less. Not sure about this here, maybe that black paint weighs more? haha.

If I had a choice, I'd be all over the normal C90T with the chrome if they still had one in stock:

Quite an interesting vote result and discussion. There was a time when all black cruisers were considered "too basic and borning" so the flashy paint schemes came out (check out H-D's "Big Flake" colors and Victory's colors over the years). Now it seems black is the very instyle option (never really went out of style but it's more popular now). White bikes are also quite hot today as well, when years ago you hardly ever saw white offered. Are we getting bored of the colors?

Here is the turn out:

Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 Suzuki Boulevard C90T B.O.S.S. is: 58.1%

Awesome (3 points) 20% [ 7 ]
Cool (2 points) 43% [ 15 ]
Uncool (1 point) 29% [ 10 ]
Fail (0 point) 9% [ 3 ]

Total votes : 35


Total number of votes: 35
Average points per vote: 61/35 = 1.74
Standardized to a maximum of 3 points: 1.74/3 x 100 = 58.095
...Therefore, this bike ranks a Coolwall Factor of 58.1%
