Suzuki Announces Cruiser Models For 2020

Just three bikes make the cut this year: the M109R, C50, and C50T.

Suzuki has announced its first set of new and returning models for the 2020 model year, and as we suspected, things are pretty same old, same old in the company's cruiser department. There are only three cruiser models in the lineup that Suzuki's released, and we have no reason to believe there'll be any surprise additions in the near future. You have your Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S., the Boulevard C50T touring cruiser, and its base-model progenitor, the Boulevard C50, all returning to Suzuki's 2020 cruiser lineup, with the only changes being some new color options and different pricing. Missing are last year's C90, C90T, M90, M50, and S40 models from the Boulevard line; there's not even a TU250X or VanVan to be found in the standard group. Which isn't all that surprising when you see that Harley only has four Sportsters for 2020, and Yamaha has almost completely done away with its Star cruiser line as of last year.

2020 Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S.

The muscle-bound M109R B.O.S.S. is back with that brawny 109ci V-twin and sci-fi cowling, along with two new colors for 2020. Base MSRP is $15,199.

The big, beefy 1,783cc Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S. rolls into 2020 at an MSRP of $15,199—and still bearing some of the biggest pistons in the industry. You’ll have your choice of two new two-tone paint schemes this year: Pearl Glacier White No.2/Glass Sparkle Black or Metallic Oort Gray No.3/Glass Sparkle Black. As we all know, B.O.S.S. stands for “Blacked Out Special Suzuki,” so you’ll know just what else to expect for the rest of the palette when it starts arriving at Suzuki dealers in October 2019.

2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50T

The classics never die, as evidenced by the 2020 retro bag-and-shield touring C50T. It gets a new color and fresh tank graphics. MSRP is $9,599.

Holding down the touring end of the lineup is the Suzuki Boulevard C50T, which also gets fresh paint for 2020. Metallic Oort Gray No.3 is the new hue on this shield-and-bag-equipped tourer, which also gets updated tank graphics. You’ll also ogle more than your recommended daily allowance of studs, artfully arranged on the seat and saddlebags. The tour-ready version of the C50 rolls with the same 50ci 45-degree V-twin, and base MSRP is $9,599 for 2020. Expect to see the C50T in Suzuki dealers this month.

2020 Suzuki C50

Suzuki’s stalwart middleweight C50 returns in 2020 with its 45-degree vee intact, but also with fresh paint options. It’ll cost you $8,299.

Suzuki’s standard-issue (and smoking deal) classic midsize cruiser comes in the form of the long-running C50, with its familiar spoked wheels, swooping fenders and a liquid-cooled 805cc V-twin connected to a five-speed transmission and shaft drive. New color schemes for 2020 include Candy Daring Red or Glass Sparkle Black, with the base MSRP starting at $8,299. The 2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 should also be in dealers by September.

2020 Suzuki SV650X

The neo-retro SV650X returns for 2020 with a new color but the same liquid-cooled, DOHC, 90-degree V-twin as the base SV650. New price is $8,399.

Nope, it’s not a Boulevard cruiser, but it’s still a bike we’ve covered on this site, and it’s returning to the 2020 Suzuki lineup in the standard category. We’re talking about the Suzuki SV650X, the 645cc, clip-on-wearing, café-flavored version of the SV650. It’ll come in the new Glass Sparkle Black color this year, with a price tag of $8,399 (base). You can check it out at Suzuki dealers in November 2019.
