2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 Features

Key Features

New Metallic Oort Gray paint with updated tank graphics blends well with the Boulevard’s classic styling, windscreen, studded leather-texture seats, and matching saddlebags.

Fifty cubic inch (805cc), 45-degree, V-twin engine rumbles through dual pipes as it smoothly puts down power that’s at home in town or out on the highway.

With a light pull, the clutch feeds engine power to the smooth-shifting five-speed transmission and out to the clean shaft drive.

Riders settle in behind a classically styled windscreen holding wide, buckhorn-style handlebars, with feet comfortably on forward-mount floorboards, while sitting on a plush, studded seat that’s a short 27.6 inches above the ground.

The Boulevard C50T takes care of passengers with a thick pillion seat that aids the view over the rider’s shoulder as a plus backrest provides support.

The classically styled 4.1-gallon fuel tank complements the large, valance fenders that cover the 15-inch rear and 16-inch front whitewall tires mounted on spoke-style chrome wheels.

Brushed, stainless steel covers shield the stout front fork, whereas a hidden, link-style rear shock smooths the ride while giving the bike an old-school, hard-tail look.

Engine Features

Narrow, 805cc, fuel injected, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder, 45-degree, V-twin engine is tuned for exceptional low rpm torque.

Sculpted engine features polished aluminum and chrome covers that complement the visually striking cylinders with symmetrical cooling fins.

Offset crankpins yield optimally balanced firing intervals and create a signature V-twin rumble.

Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) electronic fuel-injection system maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low- to mid-rpm throttle response.

Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS) automatically sets the throttle-valve opening during cold engine starts by monitoring coolant temperature.

Cutting-edge 3D-mapped digital ignition system using a throttle-position sensor helps boost the hallmark big V-twin low-down torque.

Chromed and staggered dual exhaust system mounted on the right side of the engine is tuned for responsive torque delivery, providing a deep, rumbling exhaust note.

A wide-ratio five-speed transmission features a high fifth-gear ratio for relaxed highway cruising.

Low-maintenance shaft drive is clean-running and has minimal torque reaction as it efficiently transmits power to the wide 15-inch rear tire.

Chassis Features

Strong, double-cradle steel frame supports a chassis ready for cruising or a full-on tour.

The Boulevard’s styling incorporates timeless visual statements from American cruiser heritage: rich paintwork, glittering chrome, and deep front and rear fenders with sculpted ends.

The easily removable, height-adjustable windshield provides full wind protection with classic styling that includes a unique chrome garnish with Boulevard emblems.

Large-capacity, leather-texture saddlebags with Boulevard emblems and convenient twist-lock fasteners provide plenty of storage capacity.

Link-type rear suspension is shaped to mimic the hard-tail lines of a traditional cruiser, connecting a truss-style swingarm and a single shock absorber with seven-way spring preload adjustability, providing 4.1 inches of smooth and responsive suspension travel.

A kicked-out, 33-degree rake, and long 65.2-inch wheelbase provide a smooth, comfortable ride.

Stout telescopic front forks deliver generous 5.5 inches of smooth wheel travel.

Wide handlebars, forward-mounted floorboards, and leather-texture, studded seats provide a comfortable ride around town and on the highway.

A beefy 15-inch rear tire and matching 16-inch front tire have wide white side-walls and are mounted to bright, spoke-style wheels for a nostalgic cruiser look.

Hydraulic front disc and drum-type rear brakes provide strong, reliable stopping performance.

The wide, deeply cushioned seat with bright studs has a low 27.6-inch seat height that’s ideal for comfortable cruising and confident stops.

Wide, studded passenger seat makes for comfortable two-up rides. Its stepped location on the rear fender allows passengers to see over the rider’s shoulder.

A passenger backrest, with a studded leather-like pad that pivots for maximum two-up comfort, perfectly matches the main seats.

A bright multi-reflector headlight is paired with a durable, efficient, and compact LED tail light.

Additional Features

A variety of Genuine Suzuki Accessories for Boulevard owners are available, including a large selection of Suzuki logo apparel.

12-month limited warranty. Longer coverage periods with other benefits are available through Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP).

    I bought a Suzuki c50 in 2005 and I was so poochie I took it back the same day and traded it for a 2005 c90 boulavard. The c50 does not compare to the c90. I love it so much I am still riding it. I turned it from just a muscle show off bike into a over the road crusier, which it should have been designed for in the first place !
