2018 Suzuki Boulevard M90 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine Features
Potent 1462cc long-stroke, liquid-cooled, 4-valves-per-cylinder V-Twin engine is built to deliver massive torque while providing good fuel economy.

Smooth black finish on the engine and air cleaner covers complements the muscular presence of the V-twin’s finned cylinders.

Large flywheels help smooth out low rpm power pulses, as does a spring loaded primary drive damper bolted to the end of the crankshaft.

To reduce mechanical sounds, each cylinder head’s cam cover is separated from the cam bearing caps, and a rubber gasket is used between the cylinder head and the cam cover.

A spring loaded scissor type split primary drive gear mounted on the crankshaft also reduces mechanical noise.

Each aluminum alloy cylinder is plated with SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) nickel phosphorus silicon carbide coating which reduces friction and increases heat transfer, durability and ring sealing.

Hard, smooth chrome-nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)-coated upper-compression and oil-control piston rings reduce friction and improve sealing.

Suzuki’s class-leading electronic fuel injection system features the Dual Throttle Value (SDTV) as well as a 32-bit engine management system to provide smooth throttle response and fuel efficiency.

Multi-hole-type fuel injectors deliver a fine spray for a powerful yet fuel-efficient operation.

Dual spark plugs for each cylinder contribute to proper ignition and efficient fuel economy.

An automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) system improves cold starts and stabilizes an idle engine under various conditions.

Chromed dual-exhaust with equal-length head pipes for excellent power delivery is mounted on the right side of the engine, and provide a deep, rumbling exhaust note.

Effective engine management system and emissions control measures allow the M90 to meet latest emission standards.

Power is delivered through a wide ratio five speed transmission and a shock reducing damper, through a clean running, reliable drive shaft to the rear wheel.

Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) makes for efficient clutch operation and a lighter pull.


Chassis Features
Suzuki performance-cruiser styling is sleek and flowing throughout from the distinctive headlight nacelle to the tapered tail section.

The M90 features a steel tube frame with a hidden rear shock absorber, creating a muscular, rigid hard-tail look.

The coil-over 46mm rear shock is hidden underneath the bodywork so the ride is smooth and controlled.

The large diameter, blacked-out inverted forks feature 43mm inner tubes with 5.1 inches of wheel travel to soak up road imperfections and handle the powerful front brakes.

Dual fully floating 290mm front disc brakes with dual-piston calipers and a 275mm rear disc brake with a single dual-piston caliper are ready to haul the bike down from speed.

Cast-aluminum 18-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels, with a seamless black finish.

Wide 120/70 ZR18 front and ultra-wide 200/50 ZR17 rear Bridgestone radial tires were specifically designed for M90.

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 stretched fuel tank holds a full 4.76 gallons of fuel.

Wide, long, well-padded seat interfaces with the comfortable passenger seat that can be easily replaced with an optional tail section cover for solo rides.

Multi–reflector headlight with a 60/55W halogen high/low-beam bulb.

LED taillight with fisheye fresnel-cut smoked red lens. Bullet-shaped turn signals with unique vertical lens cuts.

Distinctive instrument cluster is integrated into the headlight cowl.

Instrumentation features a stepping-motor-driven analog speedometer and a bar-section fuel gauge that’s always on display.

Long, cast sidestand is designed and positioned to help make it easier to move the parked bike up off the stand.


Additional Features
Optional single seat cowl can replace the passenger seat for an even more aggressive look or for use on solo rides.

Genuine Suzuki accessory options for the M90 include clean-fitting, functional saddlebags.

More Genuine Suzuki Accessories for Boulevard owners are available including a large selection of Suzuki logo apparel.

12-month limited warranty. Longer warranty coverage period and other benefits are available through the Suzuki Extended Protection Plan (SEP).
