  • Fantastic cruiser!!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Feb 02, 2015

    I bought my 08 Blvd in January 2012 from a guy I know at a great price. I love this bike. The 2 tone red/white always gets compliments. It had around 6000 miles on it. Now it has over 20,000 miles on it. I've customized it with a batwing fairing, stereo, etc and painted red to match. Hard bags are ...

  • Fantastic bike for the money.
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 15, 2013

    I have 8700 miles on this bike. It rides like a charm, accelerates well enough if you are not racing, handles nery nimbly and is super reliable. Gives me 60 MPG. I replaced the battery after 5 years and changed the oil. That's it. I have added engine guards, floor boards for my wife, a light ...

  • A WHOLE LOT OF BIKE
    By  (I am an Owner) on Apr 21, 2010

    THIS BIKE WILL BE WITH ME FOR A VERY LONG TIME, IT IS INCREDIBLY FAST FOR 805CC CAN KEEP UP WITH THE BEST OF THE BIGGER 1000+ BIKES. COMFORT, HANDLES WELL RELIABLE AND LOW MAINTENANCE. THIS BIKE HAS IT ALL. I ONLY HOPE SUZUKI WOULD HAVE INCLUDED ENGINE GUARDS WITH IT.

  • Fabulous Bike !
    By  (I am an Owner) on Mar 28, 2010

    I purchased this bike in March of 2008 and I absolutely love it. It's the first bike I've owned with fuel injection and I'll never go back. I've added chrome neck covers, chrome luggage rack, chrome mesh grille, Cobra Pipes and a FI2000R digital fuel processor. I also added a tach kit from Pro-One ...

  • Overall Satisifaction
    By  (I am an Owner) on Feb 02, 2010

    Overall I am pleased with my C50T, but because of Suzuki's refusal to honor warranty repairs, I would never buy another Suzuki. The only issue I have with my bike is with the wheels spokes. They corrode, flake and then the chrome peels off. Suzuki's customer service personnel say's they have never ...

  • 2008 Suzuki Boulevard C50T
    By  (I am an Owner) on May 15, 2009

    I purchased a 2008 Suzuki Boulevard C50T about a month ago and have a little over 600 miles on it. I love the look and asthetics of the bike. The floorboards and heel/toe shifter are a nice touch. The seat could be a little better as my butt starts to burn after about an hour. The biggest gripe I ...

    I told them the design was poor and they should move the lock. I also told them that they should give me a credit towards an aftermarket helmet lock which they refused to do. I understand that the 2009 models have the same problem. It appears that Suzuki doesn't care about this problem and is unwilling to fix it.

    I washed my bike and when I washed the front turn signal, the yellow lens cap fell off. I took it to the suzuki dealership and they acknowledged that it shouldn,t have happened. The dealership ordered me a new turn signal which took over three weeks to get.

    I'm disappointed in Suzuki.

  • One Awsome Bike!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Apr 25, 2009

    The perfect bike! Fuel Injection, water cooled, drive shaft, all for under $8000. I ride every day above 28 degrees and this bike is everything I could ask for. I have added some upgrades but I wouldn't trade it even for any 2009. It handles like a dream. That, to me is way more important than ...

  • A fun, really good buy bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Mar 06, 2009

    I've had my red/white C50T for about 5 months now and have put 7400 miles on the meter. Being 61 years old,comfort and dependability were key...in my youth I sold motorcycles, and this time around I wanted three key features: 1. Shaft drive 2. Liquid cooling 3. Fuel injection. Now, try and find a ...

    I am so enamored with this motorcycle, that almost certainly when the time comes, I will trade up to the C90T.

    Ride On

  • Great all around choice
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jan 01, 2009

    My Wife and I each own a C50T. Hers red/wht and mine in black. We shopped for a few months and looked at everything. We made the right choice. These bikes perform and handle good around town as well as on the highway. We paid less for these two brand new bikes that one of the very popular U.S. made ...

  • we're a pair
    By  (I am an Owner) on Dec 26, 2008

    I am 70 years old and my passion in life is riding my bike. I have the 2008 red and white Suzuki C50T. To fit me better, I have added 4" pull-back risers and footpegs to occasionally rest my legs. I am due to get my Mustang seat in less than a week and can't wait. I also put "crampbuster's" on ...

    Now that I am practically retired, I plan to do a lot of touring. Life is good.

  • 2008 C50T Solid Bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Dec 08, 2008

    This bike is an excellent bike for experienced or new riders alike. At 800 cc the engine is enough for getting around town or hauling you down the freeway, reliable and durable are the two best words for this bike. If one was going to pick on something it would be the comfort of the seat for long ...

  • On the Boulevard
    By  (I am an Owner) on Oct 16, 2008

    This is the most balanced bike I have ever ridden. It has good power and the red/ivory scheme with swept-back fenders is right out of the 60's and 70's. My lady loves being on the old-style king & queen high back seat. This bike is worth it.

  • I love this bike.
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 27, 2008

    After months of reading reviews and trips to local dealers, I narrowed my choice b/w the C90T, C50T, & V Star 1100. Today I sat on every bike in the store. The C50T fit me the best. I bought it. Today I rode 94.5 miles of pure joy. In a word this bike is SMOOOOTH. It handles curves easily. Acceleration ...

    For the money, you will not be disappointed.

  • Amazing
    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 30, 2008

    This bike has everything you could want in a cruiser and a whole lot more! The ride is more comfortable than any american made bike in its price range and rivals that of the more expensive ones. Although a little stiff in quick turns this bike handles well on the city streets and major highways. ...
