2018 Suzuki Boulevard S40 on Total Motorcycle:

The Suzuki Boulevard S40 takes a timeless single-cylinder design, with a new blacked-out treatment, and adds a shot of advanced Suzuki technology to create a bike that combines exciting performance and a bold appearance with rock-solid reliability. It features a strong, rigid chassis for agile handling and lightweight responsiveness that makes it great for cruising down the boulevard or beyond the city limits. Best of all, one twist of the throttle rewards you with a strong blast torque from the 40-cubic-inch engine.

Chromed Chopper In The Custom-Cruiser Class

This gleaming beauty is what custom cruising all about. The SUZUKI BOULEVARD S40’s high torque, produced by its powerful engine, is fully utilized by a wide 5-speed transmission and low-maintenance belt drive.
