Suzuki’s Boulevard line of power cruisers has had a pretty big hole between the 805cc M50 and 1783cc M109. The new M90 introduced to dealers just a couple of days ago should fill that void, at least in part, with a new 1462cc fuel injected v-twin powered cruiser that is expected to retail for less than $10,000 here in the U.S (the photos are actually of the European version of the M90, badged the “Intruder”). Suzuki’s aim is to provide a bargain power cruiser that features a pretty good spec, such as a wide, 200 section rear tire, a hard tail look with a hidden shock, and dual front disc brakes. Here is a list of the M90 features from Suzuki:
SUZUKI BOULEVARD M90 Features
1462cm3 (90 cubic-inch) long-stroke, 4-valve-per-cylinder V-Twin engine, built to deliver massive torque while maintaining efficient operation.
Dual spark plugs for each cylinder increase combustion and fuel efficiency.
Hard, smooth chrome-nitride physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)-coated upper-compression and oil-control piston rings reduce friction and improve sealing.
Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) digital fuel injection and engine management system powered by a 32-bit computer enhance response and efficiency.
An automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) system improves cold starting and stabilizes engine idle under varying conditions.
Effective engine management system and emissions control measures allow the SUZUKI BOULEVARD M90 to meet latest emissions standards in respective markets.
Cable-operated back-torque-limiting clutch with Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) makes for efficient clutch operation and a lighter pull.
To reduce mechanical noise, each cylinder head’s cam cover is separate from the cam bearing caps, and a rubber gasket is used between the cylinder head and the cam cover.
Dual slash-cut chromed mufflers fed from equal-length head pipes produce a dynamic, throaty V-Twin rumble.
Inverted 43mm-outer-tube front forks deliver 130mm (5.1 inches) of wheel travel.
A classic, rigid hardtail look is composed by hiding the coil-over 46mm rear shock absorber underneath the bodywork.
Wide, long, well-padded seat. The comfortable passenger seat is easily replaced with an optional tailsection cover for solo rides.
Flat-bend, drag-style chromed 25.4mm (1.0-inch)-diameter handlebars, positioned at a relatively short reach from the seat.
Dual fully floating 290mm (15.3-inch) front disc brakes with dual-piston calipers; 275mm (10.8-inch) rear disc brake with a single dual-piston caliper.
Wide 120/70ZR18M/C (59W) front and 200/50ZR17M/C (75W) rear Bridgestone radial tires specifically designed for the SUZUKI BOULEVARD M90.
Distinctive instrument cluster, integrated into the headlight cowl under a chrome cover.
Long, chrome-plated sidestand, designed and positioned to help make it easier to move the parked bike up off the stand.
Multi-reflector headlight with a 60/55W halogen high/low-beam bulb.
LED taillight with fisheye fresnel-cut smoked red lens. Bullet-shaped turn signals with unique vertical lens cuts.
Instrumentation features a stepping-motor-driven analog speedometer and a bar-section fuel gauge always on display.
