2008 Suzuki Boulevard C109RT | Motorcycle Preview

Big Bones

Those in the market for stylish, big-bore baggers will have a good deal of whisker scratching to do in 2008. Just as the touring demographic is expanding, so are its options. Hot on the tailpipes of the Victory Vision’s intergalactic funk come a new machine as disparate in their styling as their origins. For the metrically inclined, there is a powerful tourer with classic good looks from a Japanese manufacturing titan.

Suzuki’s Boulevard C109RT stands at the ready.

The classically big-boned Suzuki C109RT (www.suzukicycles.com), with its M109R-based 1783cc, liquid-cooled, fuel injected V-twin engine and all new chassis, fills a gap in Suzuki’s torque-snorting Boulevard line. The C109RT melds a fresh take on the traditional touring profile with Suzuki’s distinctive V-Twin technology. From the massive pullback bars behind the custom windscreen, to the studded two-up seat with passenger backrest, leather saddlebags, and its slash-cut pipes, the C109RT cuts a purposeful figure on the highway. Beneath a 5-gallon tank, the 109 cu in engine has been tuned for maximum low-end torque and is fed by Suzuki’s Dual Throttle Valve system, a technology that aids smooth throttle transitions descended from the high-performance GSX-R line.

Whether you’re looking to cruise down the middle of the road, or out on the edge of the highway in 2008, this machine will have you, your passenger, and your gear covered.
