Performance cruiser matches larger siblings

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Jun. 29, 2009
Suzuki has updated its Boulevard M50 cruiser to match the styling of its larger siblings, the M90 and M109R.

The 2010 Suzuki Boulevard M50 has received the headlight cowl as the larger-displacement models, giving the M-series a similar appearance. A new instrument cluster is integrated with the cowl with a fuel gauge and clock.

Suzuki also reshaped the rear fender as well as the LED taillight to match the new style.

The M50’s chassis has also been updated to place the handlebars closer to the rider. The seat has also been modified to match the new rear fender.

The 2010 Suzuki M50 has been reshaped to match the M90 and M109's stylings.

The new M50 will still be powered by the same 805cc liquid-cooled eight-valve, 45-degree V-Twin. The fuel injection system uses the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve system, using 32-bit Engine Control Module-controlled secondary butterfly valves that Suzuki says “deliver smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response and high torque output.” The FI system uses a multi-hole injector to provide a fine spray. It also includes an idle speed control system that Suzuki says eliminates the choke and helps the engine warm up faster. The 2010 M50 also use a Pulsed Air (PAIR) injection system which pumps air into the exhaust ports to ignite unburned hydrocarbons and reduce emissions.

Suzuki also covered the engine in shiny chrome plating, again giving the M50 a similar look to its larger performance cruisers.
