See how Suzuki incorporates superbike performance with long distance touring comfort in this fun sporty motorcycle.
The Suzuki Boulevard C50, an 800cc motorcycle that’s proven very popular among women because of its midsize powerplant and manageable size, has morphed into several different iterations over the last few years, including a touring edition, a classic edition, and a special edition new for 2013. So what’s the difference—and what’s the better buy?
There’s a reason why so many women choose the Suzuki GSX-R600 when shopping for a sportbike. The chassis and seat are narrow and relatively low, allowing for an easy reach to the ground for even the shortest of riders (that includes me, at 5-foot-2). Throttle response is smooth but powerful enough to feed the jollies fluttering around in your stomach in anticipation of a ride on this bike.
Ive never wanted to own a cruiser-style motorcycle, but a 3,200-mile trip this summer on a 2007 Suzuki Boulevard C50T may have changed all that. This model is identical to Suzukis popular C50 cruiser but comes with extras like a windshield, saddlebag and backrest to make it a tourer.
