2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Price

2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Price

An authentic retro-throwback cruiser, the 2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 is a standout in the light-middleweight class of cruisers. The C50 offers copious chrome, wire-spoke wheels, deeply valanced fenders, and floorboards.

At the same time, the fuel-injected motor is water-cooled, which is unexpected next to a drum brake in the rear. You probably have never seen a pair of IRC Grand High Speed GS-23 tires on a motorcycle, but that’s what is shod on the 16-inch/15-inch wheel pairing.

2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 seat heightBeing a Suzuki, rest assured that the 2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 offers plenty of performance. The 45-degree V-twin is a short-stroke design with plenty of pep delivered from the 805cc motor.

With 33 degrees of rake and a 65-inch wheelbase, the 611-pound C50 isn’t exactly agile, and the wide small-diameter handlebar is better for comfort than precision. Instead, it is built for relaxed riding and stability on the open road.

There’s a separate comfortable seat for the passenger that sits high above the 27.6-inch rider’s saddle, affording the passenger a good view. The tank-mounted dash is out of the way, so you can focus on the road ahead. The Suzuki’s 4.1-gallon fuel tank means that you won’t be visiting the gas station frequently.
