  • Wow thought I'd never like a cruiser
    By  (I am a Writer) on Aug 29, 2020

    I have had 04 GSXR 750, 08 GSXR1000, CBR929. Went 4 years without a bike. And I started looking around for a street bike but a friend of the family had his bike he had since 2006 He told me I'd like it .i went to look at it And could tell I'm the Garage with the cover on it was a cruiser and I started ...

    1. So much more comfortable riding it , plus passenger has better seat and back rest.

    2. May not go 202mph like my gsxr but she has mega power and get up for a 805cc. Handles like a dream.

    3.Looks like a Harley to most people .

    Conclusion I've road Harley, triumph , Honda cruiser and was not a fan . This is my bike till forever . I'll never sell it !!

  • First street bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on May 25, 2016

    As a first time buyer and 41 years old I wanted a motorcycle that was large in appearance and would catch the attention of onlookers. This motorcycle for first time motorists offers more than enough power to pull you and a passenger without feeling stress on the engine. This bike offers the Big Bike ...

  • Great Starter Bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jul 03, 2013

    I bought mine used last year with 1150 miles on it. I love the ride. Easy to handle with plenty of power. I put 400 miles on it last weekend and loved every one of them.

  • great buy
    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 04, 2012

    I am 15 and just purchased this bike with less than 4000 on it. tons of torque and power especially for one person. fuel injection is a major plus that competitor bikes dont have. water cooled which in my opinion puts it way past harley 883 and duece. i would rather ride the boulevard than my dads ...

  • One awesome bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 11, 2011

    Bought my used C50 with a little over 11,000 miles on it. Been riding for about a month and put another 1000 miles on it. Straight C50 but with bags and a shield and a gel seat. When I first started riding it, she pulled to the left hard at freeway speeds. I removed the windshield and it helped, ...

  • 2006 Susuki Boulevard C50
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 19, 2010

    I love this bike. The center of gravity is near perfect. Smooth riding bike for its size although I now I wish it was a little faster or had another gear. One day I may move up to the C90. I also wanted to say I cut out the baffels in the stock exhaust. It sounds really great, but with a down side. ...

  • Great Mid-Size Cruiser Value
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jul 01, 2010

    I bought my used C50 in 2007. The bike had just 1000 miles. I've put 7500 miles on it since and have no virtually problems. It's not particularly fast but has plenty of torque and adequate performance for just about any country cruising condition. A sixth gear would be nice at highway speeds ...

    The C50 Boulevard is definitely at the top of the mid-size cruisers class in 2006.

  • best mid-size cruiser
    By  (I am an Owner) on Mar 14, 2009

    If you are out for a cruiser you owe it to yourself to stop and check out the C50s. If you get a chance to ride one do so. To a blind person you put the C50 and a harley Fatboy side to side and start them it would be hard to pick out the Harley. At $10,000 different in price it is a no brainer. The ...

    I was about to do just that untill I road both. Granded the harley had more power, but ran super hot. If you want more power set up to the C90, But I found for half city and half highway the C50 does the job. Don't get me wrong the harley is a great looker, but I wanted to ride not look at it.

  • Great all-around bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Feb 06, 2009

    I love this bike. But, I'm not a squid.

    The C50 is the newer brother to the Volusia. As such, there is a good selection of 3rd party add-ons. Not 2" thick catalogs like for HD - but still very customizable.

    This bike is very nimble - very well mannered. It is easy ...

    I'm not a tall guy (5'-7", 32" inseam) but this bike is very comfortable. I added some pull-back risers and a Mustang seat and I'm in heaven.

    It's not the fastest bike on the road. But, it still has plenty of power for 2-up riding around town, and single riding on the highway. It can't keep up with the 1500cc+ monsters (acceleration is a crawl above about 70 mph), but it's still more than sufficient for a single non-squid rider. It's fine for inter-state travel on the highways.

    For the price, comfort, handling, and customizability, this is a great bike.

  • Easy to Ride, Easy to Personalize
    By  (I am an Owner) on Dec 16, 2008

    Bought new in August of '07, zero miles on her. Nearing a year and a half and over 8,000 miles, I am now certain I made the right choice for a first bike.

    I've been on a number of 2,3, and 4 hundred mile treks, never a problem. Great mileage, but, I had to make a few alterations to make ...

    I'm 6' tall and 275lbs. The wife's not small either. This Bike has no problem hauling both of us, or, keeping me up with the big boys on the long rides. Handles like a dream. I'll take this opportunity to recommend the MSF course for all, helped me a great deal.

    Above the reliability, and at under 600 lbs., great handling, it's a looker. Many compliments. Lots of chrome and beautiful styling, Highly recommended to friends looking for a bike.

    Looking at going Cross Country this year.
