Performance Perfected

Feast your eyes on the Boulevard M50. From headlight to tailpipe, this tough, sleek cruiser radiates attitude.

With its 50 cubic-inch engine, the Boulevard M50 is the entry-level model in Suzuki's 'M' range of Boulevard cruisers, which have more aggressive, muscular designs than the classically-styled 'C' family.

The long and low double-cradle frame combines with a new chromed steel tail section, while chrome-plated finishes have also been added to the engine exterior to match the higher-capacity Boulevard cruisers.

A distinctive headlight cowl sets the tone for the Boulevard M50, with its flowing lines carrying all the way through to a wide, reshaped seat, sporty new rear fender and optional new tail section cover at the rear.

Beneath its skin, the Boulevard M50 features Suzuki's renowned world-class engineering, with an 805cc, V-twin, fuel-injected liquid-cooled engine delivering impressive torque from the base of the rpm range.

Excellent fuel economy is provided by Suzuki's Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel-injection system, which also offers crisp throttle response and optimised power delivery.

The Suzuki Boulevard M50. Proof that looks can thrill.

Features

  • 805cm3 (50 cubic inch) liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-Twin powerplant is built to deliver exciting torque from down low in the rpm range.
  • The fuel injection system with Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) delivers smooth low-to-mid-rpm throttle response and high torque output.
  • Multi-hole-type fuel injectors deliver a fine spray for a powerful yet fuel-efficient operation.
  • An automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) system eliminates the choke and shortens the engine's warm-up time.
  • Powerful 32-bit-prosessor Engine Control Module (ECM) helps ensure precise control.
  • A Pulsed AIR (PAIR) injection system introduces air into the exhaust ports to ignite unburned hydrocarbons and cut down on emissions.
  • The engine has a shiny, visually pleasing chrome-plated overall finish.
  • Sleek, flowing Suzuki performance-cruiser styling throughout, from the distinctive headlight cowl to the purposeful tail section.
  • The shapely instrument cluster, neatly integrated with the headlight cowl, includes a fuel gauge and a clock.
  • Cast-aluminium 16-inch front/15-inch rear wheels, with a gleaming silver finish.
  • 41mm inverted front forks add sporty looks and performance.
  • Wide, comfortable seat, shaped for a smooth visual harmony with the sporty rear fender and the optional tail section cover
  • The LED tail light is shaped for a neat match with the tail section design.

Test Rode Brand New M50

4.0

- Good

posted this on Mar 02, 2014

I just test rode one of these excellent machines. First and foremost, I have always been something of a Yamaha man but this Suzuki really got my attention the moment I sat on it. Brands aside, I have been looking and at least sitting on all kinds of cruisers lately and I am not terribly swayed by whether the cruiser is Japanese, British (If you can even really call them that anymore) or American. (O.K. Harleys are a bit special...)

Anyway this M50 is the first cruiser I have ridden. Altho...

+ Looks, riding position, seat, engine smoothness and power.

- Speedo a bit small, indicator tank flashers easy to miss, some plastic chrome parts.

Needs 6th Gear !

4.0

- Good

posted this on Jun 05, 2013

2013 model-- Good Looking bike, but lacks a 6th gear. Highway riding would get too buzzy with only 5 gears. Suzuki needs to add a 6th gear to the 805cc line or go 950cc range. Otherwise I would buy one, but will probably go with a new honda w/ 6 gears.
Style and ergonomics are very nice on the new 2013 model

+ Style, Handling, FI, Reliable

- Badly needs a 6th Gear.. too buzzy at highway speed

Great machine , purchased new and had Vance and Hines short shots fitted before delivery , sounds tough and goes hard enough , they have all the power you need , you dont need anymore power , and im an experienced rider , 47 years old , 6' 3 in height , and 110 kgs . They handle well for a cruiser , brakes could be better , but you ride it accordingly , fuel economy is good . Have also got a Harley , but just love riding the M50 which cost a 3rd of the price of the Harley did . I remo... Read more

I have had my M50 for rour years and cannot fault its ride. The seat is comfortable, handles are at the right hight and so comfortable for my wife she falls asleep.
Did find the factory pipes were a bit quiet so put after market on and now sounds great.
Only downside it does not like downhill corners, wants to psh into them so must be careful. Up hill handles as good as any bike ridden.
Te Boulevarard sissie seat and accessories have pitted and do need to have it re-chromed.

+ Comfort, especially in city traffic

- Fuel distance is only 275 klms

I love this bike

Comfortable; my first ride was 300 km non-stop, with no numb bum or other discomfort.

Great handling, I love to lean this bike, it's light and easily manoeuvred. Easy to keep up with other bikes.

Responsive engine, low rev torque is more than enough, and easy cruising at 120 km/hr and above.

Fuel tank large enough for 275 to 300 km. A slightly larger tank would be nice, but not necessary.

Exhausts!!! Suzuki, make the factory fitted exhaust louder - be seen, be heard, be safe! This...

+ Comfortable, low seat, easily manoeuverable, great looks, nice cornering for a cruiser, finally able to pass other vehicles.

- Brakes are adequate, but ride it like a cruiser and not a sports bike. Exhausts need to be a little louder.

Been out of bikes for 15 years so when the time to re-enter the market came around I decided on a cruiser as my boy racer days are over (almost). First impressions were how comfortable and easy the bike was to ride, very confidence inspiring. Value stands up really well against other metric cruisers leaving me some change in my pocket to customise. Only downside was the bike was a bit to easy and sedate for my 6ft 3", 105kg frame but I loved the size of the M50 so I have spiced it up a bit wi... Read more

+ Value, riding position, looks, performance

- Rear brake only adequate. Motor stiffled a bit by those huge mufflers
