2011 Suzuki Boulevard
Suzuki’s leader in the power-cruiser category, the 2011 Boulevard M109R, will be available in limited quantities in black. Suzuki hasn’t released how many black Boulevard M109R cruisers will be available.
The plain black model now joins the two other colors available on the M109R: Candy Indy Blue and M109R Limited Edition Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Max Orange.
The M109R features much aggressive grunt due to its 109-cubic inch (1783cc) engine that features a wide tourque curve for everyday motorcycling. This powerhouse, combined with muscular styling, some final touches borrowed from the GSX-R superbike, and also the 240mm rear tire, makes for unique cruiser.
Suzuki Boulevard M109R Engine Features:
- The Boulevard M109R’s 1783cc, 8-valve DOHC, 54 degree, liquid-cooled, fuel injected V-twin engine is designed for strong throttle response and quick acceleration.
- Suzuki’s class-leading electronic fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve system (SDTV) with 56mm throttle bodies, which maintains optimum air velocity for smooth low- to mid-range throttle response.

- Each engine bore is lined with Suzuki’s race proven SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) for optimum heat transfer, tighter piston-to-cylinder clearances and reduced weight.
- A dual spark plug per cylinder ignition system is controlled by the Boulevard M109R’s powerful 32-bit ECM for improved combustion efficiency and reduced exhaust emissions.
- The Boulevard M109R uses Suzuki Advanced Sump System (SASS), which is a compact dry sump lubrication system that provides reduced engine height, a lower crankshaft position and a lower center of gravity.
- A unique two-stage cam drive system creates a compact cylinder head design, reduces overall engine height and creates a lower center of gravity.
