2008 Suzuki Boulevard C90

The Suzuki Classic Cruiser bikes capture all the kinetic energy of a crowded boulevard on a hot August night. And right at the head of the lineup is the Boulevard C90, the baddest cruiser on the block. With its long-stroke, 45-degree V-twin powerplant, the Boulevard C90 cranks out monstrous amounts of torque, which you can tap into for a raw rush of acceleration in any gear. The Boulevard C90 is equally at home on the wide-open highway. That’s where you can kick back and enjoy its wonderfully spacious riding position, which lets you and your passenger stretch out and ride in comfort all day long. With its bold styling, lustrous paint and sparkling chrome, this is one classic cruiser that’s bound to capture attention, whether you’re cruising down the boulevard or kicking back at a rest stop. The Boulevard C90 – where classic cruiser styling meets awesome performance.


Engine Features

– Fuel-injected, 90 cubic inch, 6-valve, air/oil-cooled engine designed for maximum low/mid-range torque and acceleration

– 45 degree phase, dual-pin crankshaft minimizes vibration, plus added flywheel mass enhances low/mid-range power

– GSX-R-derived electronic fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve System (SDTV) – maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response and high torque output – includes Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS)

– 32-bit ECM provides precise control of ignition timing and multi-hole-type injectors ensuring quick startup and excellent drivability under all conditions

– Fuel injection system receives input from gear position sensor, water temp. sensor, air temp. sensor and intake port sensors for efficient power delivery and better fuel economy

– SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electro-chemical Material) cylinder plating is durable, minimizes cylinder size & weight and improves heat dissipation

– Efficient SACS air/oil cooling system with additional piston-jet cooling and engine oil cooler

– Hydraulic valve lash adjusters eliminate valve adjustment maintenance and ensure quiet engine operation

– Silent operation cam chains with automatic tensioners reduce engine noise and maintenance

– Hydraulic clutch with back-torque limiter ensures smooth downshifts
