The Boulevard C109RT is a touring version of the C109R, with white wall tyres, an attractive two-tone paint scheme, studded seat trim and passenger footboards. When complimented with a host of optional genuine Suzuki accessories you can customise your ride and hit the streets or open road.
The traditional classic hard-tail styled cruiser is powered by the same modern high-performance 1,783cc, fuel injected, V-Twin engine as used by the M109R.
To enhance this responsive, massive torque producing power-plant is a five speed transmission, a shaft final drive, a linked front-and-rear disc brake system and a massive, ultra wide 240/55R16 rear radial tire.
