2016 Suzuki Boulevard S40 Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price
2016 Suzuki Boulevard S40

The choices in single-cylinder cruisers are extremely limited. Fortunately, the 2016 Suzuki Boulevard S40 is a stylish way to thump your way down the main drag.

Weighing only 381 pounds ready to ride, and with a seat height of 27.6 inches, it is accessible to new riders. The motor displaces 652cc and provides strong grunt off idle, and the five-speed transmission is plenty for its wide powerband.

A slim 19-inch front wheel and chunky rear tire give the bike some attitude, while a drum rear brake, air-cooling and 40mm Mikuni carb imbue the Boulevard S40 with retro credibility.
