2020 Suzuki Cruiser Lineup is Gutted

Suzuki has released its 2020 "Boulevard" cruiser lineup. It consists of:

1. The M109R
2. The C50T
3. The C50

That. Is. It.

Gone are the S40, M50, C90, C90T, and M90.

I'd like to hope it means the Mothership has pulled these models back for a major redesign, but I've got a feeling that won't be the case.

D*mned shame. Suzuki cruisers have always been good bikes at reasonable prices.

The C90 never was a good bike. I'm sure Suzuki is looking at replacing it with something better. They need a mid-range cruiser that's somewhere in between the "not so good on the highway" C50 and the "rip your face off" M109.

I'm a bit surprised that they're pulling the M50 though. I mean, all they really do is change the fenders on the C50 to get it. You'd think they could keep cranking that one out. It's a pretty good looking bike, even if it isn't super popular.

The S40 is a good entry level bike, but the design is definitely getting a bit long in the tooth. I suspect they're going to be looking to release something that can compete with the redesign of the Rebel and the Street 500. If I were looking to buy a bike in that 500cc range, I wouldn't even bother to look at the S40 when I can get the Rebel or Street in the same price range.

I suspect that we're looking at a redesign coming. Hang in there.

Music, Motorcycles, and Family... Nothing else really matters in life!

Lets hope they're redesigning the 90 series. Or replacing it with something similar.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I love my Savage and still have it. It's a great bike and a 650 single cylinder, air cooled, low or no maintenance. I thought it was a superb starter bike.

I have an '08 C50.
Everyone makes me ride at the back because of my Morton Violators.
Longest ride: 1241 miles in 20 hours 15 minutes

Interested in a replacement gas tank, in black, but I'm cheap

Their combined cruiser sales lag far behind that of the Vstrom and sport bikes. It is not a market that Suzuki has ever really competed in successfully

Holding my breath to see what they come up with. Hopefully sooner than later. As Skrapiron has said, they never have been particularly competitive in the cruise market. Sad.

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans!

Harley never needed to redesign very much to dominate the cruiser market. Smart money is on a good used Harley. Just sayin'.
