For Suzuki, “M” stands for “Muscle.” In this case, we’re talking about the 2013 Suzuki Boulevard M50, Suzuki’s mid-sized cruiser with the muscle bike styling of the company’s apex “M” class member, the M109R. The 50 part of the M50 equation comes from the displacement of the motorcycle’s V-Twin engine, 50 cubic-inches. Adding to its brawny disposition is a Softail-style frame with its single shock tucked neatly out of sight.
The M50 certainly looks the part of a muscle bike. The tires mounted on its cast aluminum wheels are thick and beefy. It sports Suzuki’s signature headlight cowling leading to low-rise handlebars on chrome pull-back risers set within easy reach for riders. Meaty slash-cut pipes streak down the right side and end at about the same point as the bob-tail rear fender. You can take off the removable pillion pad for an even more aggressive look or leave it on and invite your favorite partner along for the ride because its 805cc powerplant has enough pull to competently do double duty.
