A slump in the American market set the Japanese manufacturer back on its heels, so we have not seen any new Suzi cruisers since the MR in and the CR in Now Suzuki has added a touring addition of its cc-powered M90 Boulevard. The Suzuki C90T features the same engine as the M90 which is not the torque mill you would expect. It actually requires a few revs before it starts to really pull.
Neither the competing Japanese manufacturers nor any of the American motorcycle companies have a cruiser in the cc range, let alone a cruiser-tourer. All that hardly matters once you hop on a motorcycle. Either it works at its intended goal, or it falls short in some ways. In the case of the Suzuki Boulevard C90T, it satisfies the needs of riders who want enough power to tour two-up, yet want to do it on a budget and have the peace of mind that comes with a mature, reliable design.
The Suzuki Boulevard C90T is a tour-ready cruiser powered by a fuel-injected cubic-inch V-twin engine that delivers exceptional torque for outstanding acceleration in every gear. A strong five-speed transmission and shaft-drive cleanly puts all that power to the ground. This bike also features fully integrated leather-look, rigid side cases and a comfortable passenger seat, all behind a large windscreen for remarkably comfortable cruising on the open road.
Cruisers and touring bikes go hand in hand for that relaxed, comfortable ride you get. The Boulevard C90T from Suzuki is the touring version of the C90 that was dropped after the model year. This is a budget tourer. The stock bags are weatherproof and provide ample storage — more than the leather ones do — so pick your priorities. I like that the bags are integrated on the bike and not just a bolt-on afterthought.
