2012 Suzuki Boulevard S40 Review

Built For Fun, Pure and Simple.

You haven't lived until you've ridden a big single-cylinder road bike. They're flat out a blast to ride. The Boulevard S40 takes that timeless single-cylinder design and adds a shot of advanced Suzuki technology to create a bike that combines exciting performance with rock-solid reliability. One of the S40's major attractions is its lightweight responsiveness - it's great for cruising down the boulevard or beyond the city limits. Wherever you ride, one twist of the throttle rewards you with a blast of low-end and mid-range torque. And when you're up to cruising speed, you'll really appreciate the engine's smooth performance.

For 2012 the Boulevard S40 is available in Metallic Fox Orange/Glass Sparkle Black and Pearl Mirage White/Metallic Veil Silver.

There's a good reason so many road bikes in the '50s and '60s were big single-cylinder machines: they're incredibly fun to ride! The Boulevard S40 adds a shot of advanced Suzuki technology to this timeless design to create a bike that combines exciting performance with rock-solid reliability. One of the S40's major attractions is its lightweight responsiveness. Weighing just 381 pounds, it's great for cruising down the boulevard or getting outside the city limits. Wherever you ride, one twist of the throttle rewards you with a blast of low-end and mid-range torque. And when you're up to cruising speed, you'll really appreciate the engine's smooth performance. The Boulevard S40 for 2012 - designed for you to enjoy the simple pleasure and pure excitement of motorcycling.


 


2012 Suzuki Boulevard S40 Features and Benefits

Engine Features

A 652cc, SOHC, single-cylinder, air-cooled four-stroke engine with TSCC (Twin Swirl Combustion Chambers) cylinder head and high mass crankshaft produces strong low-end power and torque.

An electric Starter with automatic decompression system provides quick, easy engine starting.

A precision electronic ignition system includes a maintenance-free battery.

 

Chassis Features

A hydraulic front disc brake and drum-type rear brake provide strong, reliable braking performance.

A wide 15" rear tire and slim 19" front tire provides a classic cruiser look.

Polished spoke wheels provide a classic look like larger cruiser models and a polished upper fork bracket features an attractive and durable clear coat finish.

The Boulevard S40 comes with an attractive tear drop-shaped fuel tank (2.8 gal capacity) with flush-mounted speedometer.

Custom flat handlebar design provides a clean, sporty appearance, while custom-style rear view mirrors provide an attractive appearance (similar to the larger Boulevard models).

The rear reflector is integrated with the taillight for a clean, finished appearance to the rear section of the bike.

A sleek, one-piece saddle adds to the Boulevard S40's already streamlined appearance. The low seat height (only 27.6 inches) is great for smaller or entry-level riders.

 

Transmission Features

A smooth-shifting 5-speed transmission is complemented by a low-maintenance belt-drive system that's quiet, durable, and simple to adjust and clean.
