2008 Suzuki Boulevard S40

Built For Fun, Pure and Simple.

There’s a good reason so many road bikes in the ’50s and ’60s were big single-cylinder machines: they’re incredibly fun to ride! The Boulevard S40 adds a shot of advanced Suzuki technology to this timeless design to create a bike that combines exciting performance with rock-solid reliability. One of the S40’s major attractions is its lightweight responsiveness. Weighing just 352 pounds*, it’s great for cruising down the boulevard or getting outside the city limits. Wherever you ride, one twist of the throttle rewards you with a blast of low-end and mid-range torque. And when you’re up to cruising speed, you’ll really appreciate the engine’s smooth performance. The Boulevard S40 for 2008 – designed for you to enjoy the simple pleasure and pure excitement of motorcycling.

*355 lbs. In California
