Post the teaser Suzuki USA had posted on its website, we were expecting a performance upgrade for Suzuki’s behemoth 1783cc V-Twin Cruiser. Contrasting to our expectations, Suzuki has lent the B.O.S.S. scheme to the Boulevard M109R.
Abbreviation for ‘Blacked Out Special Suzuki’, the Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S. edition gets the dark side treatment with black shades extended to its 18 inch alloy wheels running that massive 240 section tyre, the handlebars, fork tubes, mufflers, brake calipers, engine covers etc. In fact no unpainted surface found on the earlier variant of the Boulevard M109R has been left out. Suzuki has managed to spare the headlight cowl, the fuel tank and the front fender, but treated them with a Marble Daytona Yellow shade. Also wheel stripes have been added in a similar colour.
There have been two more additions to the B.O.S.S. bandwagon. One being the 2013 Suzuki C90 B.O.S.S.- nothing but a cruiser variant of the Suzuki Boulevard C90T, albeit with accessory deductions. The windshield and the hard saddle bags stand deleted on the B.O.S.S. variant. Similar to the M109R, the C90 gets black treatment to the wheels, forks, exhaust and the 1462cc v-twin engine.
Next on the list is the 805cc Suzuki Boulevard C50 B.O.S.S.- again a cosmetically treated variant of the Boulevard C50. The chrome bits have given way to the black treatment to the wheels, mufflers, brake calipers, clutch covers, fork tubes, handlebars and levers.
Slated to be available in December at US Dealerships, Suzuki hasn’t announced the pricing yet on the new B.O.S.S. models.
