2018 Suzuki Boulevard C50T Totalmotorcycle.com 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 torque.

Sculpted engine features polished aluminum and chrome covers that complement the visually striking cylinders with symmetrical cooling fins.

Offset crankpins bring optimally balanced firing intervals and create a signature V-Twin rumble..

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.

Cutting-edge 3D-mapped digital ignition system using a throttle-position sensor helps boost the hallmark big V-Twin low-down torque.

Chromed and staggered dual-exhaust system mounted on the right side of the engine is tuned for responsive torque delivery providing a deep, rumbling exhaust note.

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

Low-maintenance shaft drive is clean-running and has minimal torque reaction as it efficiently transmits power to the wide 15-inch rear tire.

 

Chassis Features
Strong, double-cradle steel frame supports a chassis ready for cruising or a full-on tour..

The styling incorporates timeless visual statements from American cruiser heritage: rich paintwork, glittering chrome and deep front and rear fenders with rounded ends.

A custom-designed, height -adjustable windshield provides full wind protection with classic styling that includes a unique chrome garnish with Boulevard emblems.

Large-capacity, leather-texture saddlebags with Boulevard emblems and convenient twist-lock fasteners provide plenty of storage capacity.

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 adjustability providing 4.1 inches of smooth and response suspension travel.

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

Stout telescopic front forks deliver generous 5.5 inches of smooth wheel travel.

Wide handlebars, forward-mounted floorboards, and leather-textured seats provide a comfortable ride around town and on the highway.

A beefy 15″ rear tire and matching 16” front tire have wide white side-walls and are mounted to bright, spoke-style wheels for a nostalgic cruiser look.

Hydraulic front disc and drum-type rear brakes provide strong, reliable braking performance.

Wide, studded passenger seat makes for comfortable two-up rides. It’s stepped location on the rear fender allows passengers to see over the rider’s shoulder.

A passenger backrest, with a studded leather-like pad that pivots for maximum two-up comfort, perfectly matches the main seats.

Bright multi-reflector headlight. Durable, efficient and compact LED taillight.
