2016 Suzuki Boulevard M50 Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price
2016 Suzuki Boulevard M50

The junior partner in Suzuki M-series of Boulevard cruisers, the M50 matches modern style and performance to the classic cruiser profile, for a smooth ride with strong performance and confident handling.

Plenty of chrome and a tank-mounted speedometer are matched with inverted forks, to join the past with the present. The 45-degree V-twin has SOHC and two-valve heads, and the power is delivered to the 15-inch rear wheel via shaft drive.

A fat 16-inch front tire means the M50 is planted in the corners and sucks up imperfections in the road with confidence.
