Suzuki’s original B.O.S.S., the 2013 Boulevard C90T B.O.S.S., was a success in the showroom, so for ’14 the company has extended the black-is-better idea to three additional models. In case you missed the memo, B.O.S.S. stands for Blacked Out Special Suzuki. As the name implies, B.O.S.S. models are fairly dipped in black paint, black chrome, and even black tires. (Who would have thought it?)
Joining the B.O.S.S. line is the non-touring version of the C90. It’s mechanically identical to the C90T, just without the windshield and hard saddlebags. The liquid-cooled, 90-cubic-inch (1462cc) V-twin pushes power through a five-speed transmission and shaft final drive.
Another B.O.S.S. addition is the M109R, a fully blacked-out iteration of Suzuki’s power cruiser. The 109-inch (1783cc) engine carries over from the brighter versions of the M109R, as do the 240mm-wide rear tire and high-tech inverted fork.
And the third new member of the B.O.S.S. family is the Boulevard C50 B.O.S.S., which picks up the familiar 805cc V-twin and steel-tube chassis. As with the other B.O.S.S. models, the C50 gets a deep dip into the black barrel.
Suzuki has not set prices for the new B.O.S.S. members, but says the bikes will begin arriving in dealerships by late July.
