2012 Suzuki Boulevard M109R Review

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.

Looking for a power cruiser that will get your adrenaline flowing? You've come to the right place. The Suzuki Boulevard M109R combines unique styling and exhilarating performance. Their unrivaled capabilities, born of Suzuki's championship-winning race heritage, have made them leaders in their class. Each bike's awesome performance begins with a 109-cubic-inch, fuel-injected V-twin engine. It's tuned to produce massive torque all the way from idle to redline, which translates into acceleration that you have to feel to believe. The big V-twin also produces a throaty, aggressive exhaust that identifies the M109R as a power cruiser beyond compare.

The Boulevard M109R is the most powerful cruiser Suzuki has ever produced. The all-new liquid-cooled 1,783cc engine featuring four valves per cylinder and SDTV digital fuel injection gives you all the power you need, when you need it.

This monster packs the largest engine pistons of any production car or bike on the planet. Each of the huge 112mm forged aluminium-alloy pistons use short skirts and cutaway sides to reduce friction and provide the rider with raw, unstoppable muscle.

The Boulevard means business in every way - from its purpose-built chassis and high-tensile steel frame, created to handle its enormous torque, through to its GSX-R1000 styled front brake system for unmatched stopping power. The classic look is slick yet muscular.

The wide, stretched-out 19-litre fuel tank and massively beefy 240-section rear tyre (the widest ever used on a Suzuki motorcycle) sit seamlessly within its long, sleek flowing lines. The innovative styling is enhanced even further by the lustrous deep chrome finish.

From the moment you unleash the Boulevard M109R, you'll experience ultimate freedom.


 

2012 Suzuki Boulevard M109R Key Features

1783cm3, liquid-cooled, DOHC, V-Twin engine is designed to produce a massive tractable power and responsive torque.

Huge 112mm forged aluminum-alloy pistons. These are the largest reciprocating gasoline engine pistons being used in any mass production passenger car or motorcycle, while featuring race-proven design to reduce friction and inertialmass.

Suzuki Advanced Sump System (SASS), a compact dry-sump lubrication system, designed for reduced engine height, a lower crankshaft position and lower center of gravity.

The race-proven brake system came straight off the sportbike, including radial-mount opposed-4-piston front brake calipers and a dual-piston rear brake caliper.

Inverted front forks featuring race-proven cartridge internals with 46mm stanchion tubes.

Cast aluminum-alloy swingarm works with a progressive linkage and a single rear shock absorber; adjustable spring preload to suit rider and passenger weight.

Tank-mounted analog speedometer and LCD odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel gauge and clock.

 


2012 Suzuki Boulevard M109R Features and Benefits

Engine Features

A 1783cc, 8-valve DOHC, 54-degree, liquid-cooled, fuel injected V-Twin engine is designed for strong throttle response and quick acceleration.

Suzuki's class-leading electronic fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve system (SDTV) with 56mm throttle bodies, which maintains optimum air velocity for smooth low to mid-range throttle response.

A massive 112mm bore and 90.5mm stroke is complemented by huge 112mm forged aluminum-alloy pistons featuring race-proven design to reduce friction and internal mass, with short skirts, and cutaway sides riding on chrome-molly steel connecting rods.

Engine bore is lined with Suzuki's race proven SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) for optimum heat transfer, tighter piston-to-cylinder clearances and reduced weight.

A dual spark plug per cyclinder ignition system is controlled by a powerful 32-bit ECM for improved combustion efficiency and reduced exhaust emissions.

A unique two-stage cam drive system creates a compact cylinder head design, reduces overall engine height and creates a lower center of gravity.

A three-piece, 9.5-liter volume airbox (with dual intakes) includes two pleated fabric air cleaner elements located on both sides of the engine.

 

Chassis Features

A high-tensile double cradle steel frame is built to confortably handle all the power and torque while delivering agile handling and a plush, smooth ride.

Inverted front forks feature race-proven cartridge internals with 46mm stanchion tubes and provide 5.1-inches of wheel travel.

A cast aluminum allow swingarm works with a progressive shock linkage and a preload-adjustable single rear shock delivering 4.6 inches of wheel travel.

The M109R is available in Glass Sparkle Black
