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.
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.
