2008 Suzuki Boulevard Review


The 2008 Suzuki Boulevard is a classic cruiser offering V-twin performance. First introduced in 2005, The Suzuki Boulevard marked an important step on the path to success of the manufacturer’s line of cruisers because, due to its cylinder capacity and amazing power, it offered just as much bang for the buck on the boulevard as out on the highway. Suzuki’s plan for the Boulevard was to revolutionize design, horsepower, and torque by employing the fuel injection system usually found on sport bikes.

The 2008 Suzuki Boulevard’s classic design is based on the flowing lines of its kick-out front end and pullback handlebars which work well with its teardrop-shaped tank, stepped seat, and valanced rear fender. In combination, these design features highlight the seating position of the 2008 Suzuki Boulevard, which offers a comfortable ride, even on long road trips.

From its extra-large tank to its massive 240mm rear tire, to enormous pistons which are the largest on any land going gasoline powered vehicle, the 2008 Suzuki Boulevard is a dominating presence on the road that is certainly not for the faint of heart. And with power and performance to match its size, this bike will satisfy any rider’s desire to take on the challenges of the road.
