For 2014 Suzuki has unleashed three new Blacked-Out Special Suzuki versions of its Boulevard line, including the 805cc C50 Boulevard B.O.S.S. The smallest of the B.O.S.S. models, the new cruiser has higher, beefier handlebars than the standard C50, which received a decent score of 108 degrees on Cycle-Ergo.com. As a result of those bigger bars and with the addition of leg-stretching floorboards, the B.O.S.S. version of the C50, which blacks out several formerly chromed components including the handlebar, levers, fork tubes, clutch cover, mufflers, wheels and brake calipers, should rate far better than its predecessor.
For tall riders who don’t want or need – or simply aren’t ready for – a heavy mega-cc cruiser, the C50 B.O.S.S. is an excellent introduction to the segment.
