2016 Suzuki Boulevard C90 BOSS

The first thing you’ll want to know about this version of the Boulevard C90 is that BOSS stands for “Blacked Out Special Suzuki”. One look at the BOSS and you’ll see what the means—lots of black, with Metallic Fox Orange paint providing contrast.

A few pieces still get the shiny stuff—the headlight, valve covers, and bag closers, most obviously—but this urban cruiser is supposed to look tough. With floorboards, a comfortable seating position, and a strong 1462cc liquid-cooled motor with four-valve heads, the C90 BOSS has all the muscle and bravado needed around town.
