Performance never looked so good, or so dark.

In a genre where to be seen and heard are important factors, the Intruder M1800RBZ is a real head-turning and eye-catching machine.


Mighty V-Twin Power

The heart of the M1800RBZ is the 1,783cc V-Twin engine with 112mm bores, the largest of any production motorcycle in the world. Designed using the experience gained from the GSX-R range and perfectly controlled by Suzuki’s advanced digital fuel injection system.


The SUZUKI BOULEVARD M109R is an unmatched combination of the latest high-performance technology and a unique, exciting style.

It delivers the classic look of a cruiser, without sacrificing the power and torque that motorcyclists crave.

And it’s built for effortless cruising, across town, or across state lines. Now you can have your power and style, too. With the SUZUKI BOULEVARD M109R. Ready when you are.

The heart of the SUZUKI BOULEVARD M109R is a 1783 cm (109 cubic-inch) V-Twin engine, liquid-cooled with DOHC, four valves per cylinder and digital fuel injection. This is an engine designed to produce a massive wave of tractable power and responsive torque starting just off idle and reaching to redline, in a way that makes the term “powerband” seem somehow inadequate.

It is a classic example of high-performance design, built with the same engineering expertise that made the SUZUKI GSX-R1000 the most dominant sportbike on the planet.

The SUZUKI BOULEVARD M109R is simply the most powerful cruiser SUZUKI has ever produced.

2018 Suzuki Boulevard M109R BOSS Features and Benefits

Engine Features

A 1783cc, 8-valve DOHC, 54-degree, liquid-cooled, V-Twin engine is designed to produce a massive tractable power and responsive torque.

Huge 4.4 inch (112mm) forged aluminum-alloy pistons. These are one of the largest reciprocating gasoline engine pistons being used in any production passenger car or motorcycle, while featuring a race-proven design to reduce friction and inertial mass.

Each of the large cylinders is lined with Suzuki’s race proven SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) for optimum heat transfer, tighter piston-to-cylinder clearances and reduced weight.

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

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

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

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.

The 2-into-1-into-2 stainless steel blacked-out exhaust system features Suzuki’s digitally controlled SET (Suzuki Exhaust Tuning) system for optimum engine performance and a powerful V-Twin sound.

Sculpted engine features blacked out engine covers that complement the visually striking cylinders with symmetrical, high-lighted cooling fins.

A wide-ratio, constant-mesh 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 massive 18-inch rear tire.


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

The massive, low-profile 240/40 x 18 is the widest rear tire ever used on a Suzuki motorcycle.

Blacked-out, inverted front forks feature race-proven cartridge internals with 46mm stanchion tubes and provide 5.1-inches of smooth wheel travel.

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

Twin front fully-floating disc-brakes with dual-piston calipers and a single-disc, rear brake with a single dual-piston caliper are ready to haul the bike down from speed.

Flat-bend, drag-style handlebars are mounted on pull-back risers to be positioned within a short distance from the seat to improve the rider/machine interface, aiding comfort and control.

The long-stretch fuel tank holds a full 4.9 gallons of fuel.

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

Instrument cluster including a digital tachometer, gear position indicator and LED indicator lights is integrated into the top of the headlight cowl.

Both rider and passenger seats are made for comfort as they allow freedom of movement and accommodate riders of different sizes, and are well cushioned.

A sporty solo-seat cover (included) can be quickly swapped for the passenger seat for an even more aggressive look or for use on solo rides.

The M109R B.O.S.S. (Blacked Out Special Suzuki) features the following:

– Blacked-out exhaust system, clutch cover, magneto cover, cylinder head covers, air cleaner cover and final drive case.

– Blacked-out handlebars, clutch and brake levers, handlebar switch cases, rear view mirrors, fuel tank/instrument cover, front and rear wheels, front and rear brake calipers, frame side covers, rear fender stays, side-stand, steering stem clamps and front forks.

New colors with bright wheel decals for 2018, accentuate the bike’s muscular stance.
