2012 Suzuki Boulevard C50 Review

2012 Suzuki Boulevard C50

Here's a cruiser in which style meets performace. The Boulevard C50 Classic is designed to turn heads on the boulevard, featuring Glass Sparkle Black paint and bold, classic cruiser styling that includes kicked-out forks and a chromed and stagged dual-exhaust system. That striking design is complemented by strong all-around performance. The C50 Classic boasts a fuel-injected, 45-degree, V-twin engine that cranks out abundant torque down low, matched by exciting top-end performance. It also has a spacious riding position and smooth suspension for cruising in maximum comfort. Down the boulevard or out on the open highway - the C50 Classic rewards you with a ride to remember.

Climb aboard a true classic. Kick back and enjoy the timeless style that made riding synonymous with freedom. It’s all about the laid-back stance, broad saddle, and that irresistible V-twin rumble.

 


Cruiser Complete

The Boulevard C50 has the soul of a classic cruiser combined with V-twin performance that gives you a charge every time you twist the throttle.

The Boulevard C50's classic design begins with the flowing lines of its kicked-out front end and pullback handlebars, which perfectly complement its teardrop tank, stepped seat and boldly valanced rear fender. These lines, of course, show off its spacious seating position, which promises a comfortable ride hour after hour.

Down the boulevard or out on the highway, the C50's V-twin powerplant is engineered for pure excitement. With strong low-end and mid-range torque, it accelerates hard from just above idle. Yet, thanks to its advanced engineering, it's incredibly smooth at highway cruising speeds. It's time to discover how good a classic cruiser can be with the Boulevard C50.


 

Those in the UK

The 2012 Suzuki Intruder C800 provides a laid back riding style with plush comfort blending the retro styling of glittering chrome with refined modern technology and precision engineering.

The styling includes timeless visual statements such as the footboards, spoked wheels, rich paintwork, tank mounted instruments and flared mudguards - marrying these to an advanced fuel injected V-Twin engine, modern suspension, LED taillight and the luxuries of a gear position indicator, fuel gauge and clock.

2012 Suzuki Boulevard C50 Features and Benefits

Engine Features

Narrow 805cc, fuel injected, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder, 45-degree V-twin engine is tuned for exceptional low RPM and torque.

32 bit ECM provides precise control of ignition timing and multi-hole-type injectors ensuring quick starts and excellent drivability under all conditions.

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.

Suzuki Pulsed-secondary Air-Injection system (PAIR) introduces air into the exhaust ports to ignite unburned hydrocarbons and reduce emissions.

Chromed and staggered dual-exhaust system mounted on the right side of the engine provides a deep, rumbling exhaust note and strong torque.

 

Chassis Features

A wide-ratio five-speed transmission features a high fifth gear ratio for relaxed highway cruising.

Low-maintenance shaft drive is clean-running and offers low torque reaction.

 

Chassis Features

A kicked-out, 33-degree rake and long 65.2-inch wheelbase provides a smooth, comfortable ride.

Comfortable seating, thanks to a wide, well sculped leather-textured spacious and low 27.6-inch seat height.

Wide handlebars and forward-mounted floorboards and foot controls provide a comfortable ride around town and on the highway.

Telescopic forks provide 5.5 inches of smooth suspension travel.

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 adjustablility providing 4.1 inches of smooth and response suspension travel.
