The Boulevard C50 has the soul of a classic cruiser combined with V-twin performance that gives you a charge every time you twist the throttle.
The Boulevard C50's classic design begins with the flowing lines of its kicked-out front end and pullback handlebars, which perfectly complement its teardrop tank, stepped seat and boldly valanced rear fender. These lines, of course, show off its spacious seating position, which promises a comfortable ride hour after hour.
Down the boulevard or out on the highway, the C50's V-twin powerplant is engineered for pure excitement. With strong low-end and mid-range torque, it accelerates hard from just above idle. Yet, thanks to its advanced engineering, it's incredibly smooth at highway cruising speeds. It's time to discover how good a classic cruiser can be with the Boulevard C50.
+ All the extras made it a great touring bike
- I needed to stiffen up the suspension and the Pillion seat!
+ Great value for the price, looks fantastic, rides fantastic, almost the perfect bike.
- Can't fault this bike so nothing to say here.
+ looks, size, comfort, reliability.
+ Reliable, lots of after market parts (good price), well designed, easy to maintain, looks good, great price ($8000)
- Sometimes difficult to shift into 1st or Neutral.
+ The C50 is a reliable bike. I got a new battery last year but nothing else other than regular maintenace
- Need windshield if doing high speed.
+ gr8 value 4 money, pleasure to ride, very safe and quick at the same time. on performance and looks, leaves most bikes in its class for dead.
Purchased at: Action Motorcycles
+ Best Cruiser for such a less price. If cannot afford $25000 on harley davidson and looking for a similar fun then I recommend this is just amazing.
- If it was more heavier, it will bring more stability during high winds on highways.
+ The C50 Boulevade is a smooth easy ride. Powerfull enough to get away from those cagers at the lights and yet not over the top for fuel consumption. I rode a 1500 Intruder for a year, then a 250 Virago for 5 years (Just collecting my pennies). The Boulevade is the gal for me. So many people have commented to me what a neat looking gike it is. I have to agree. The C50 Boulevade is the neatest looking cruiser on the road. I have found the handeling a pleasure whether I am doing 20km or 100km. A greta deal of tourque at any speed. The stanadrd shop pipes are loud enough to give you the "yep - that's my bike" feeling. The Boulevade was not made to rip around corners - it was made to slide through them! Without a doubt, my Boulevade will live forever.
- Damn - This part is hard...... Ok, you got me - I have nothing for this section.
+ great lookin bike lots of style, gear change smooth.nice power accelleration
- breaks, not as much stopping power as you,d like at times, foot plate ground clearance in cornering
+ I love the way the c50 handles it's self not only on highways but going into bends obviously not like a sports bike but you don't feel like your on a cruiser, it's get up and go attitude is the sort of thing I like as I am a get up and go person. I had a serious motor cycle accident back in 1985 damaging my back finding it hard to ride sports bikes, then back in 2004 I broke my back in a speedway accident that ended the sports bike era. My wife knew I loved bikes and after the healing process we ventured out looking for a suitable ride after many test rides we came upon the c50 2008 model what a gem we rode it for 2 hours the dealers were worried and called the cops we got back and said we'll take one what a rush it was and such a comfortable bike to ride sorry for talking so much even writing this I am still smiling now I going out for a ride Cheers Boulevard.
