How do you feel about buying a used C90 considering it is no longer being made? I am asking with respect to aftermarket upgrades and support. Would it be wise to buy?

The C90 has always been an odd duck. For all the additional displacement, it really isn't all that peppy, when compared to other bikes in its class. It was never a good selling bike, so the aftermarket support never materialized. They're solid, but lacking a 6th gear still are a bit frenetic on the freeway.

If you like it, buy it.
That copper one is lovely. Never saw that here in the UK.
Mine gets a lot of attention, as all you seem to see here is matt black Harleys.
I think whatever you want to do with your bike can probably be done somehow, or has been done. It's a machine. Think of all the choppers and custom jobs that have been created with older bikes.

The 2013 and after are a different bike from the earlier ones. I have a c90Tboss and i like it very much. I ride the highway mostly and don't shift into 5th gear till 65 or 70 had it up 100 no problem and handles great. A programmable fuel injection controller like the Gman really wakes up the engine. A little boost gives great performance and keeps the fuel use to about 40 mpg. a bit more and it is a real performer for the type bike it is. flue use drops to the upper 30's. but you can tune it to what you want at that time. It is one of the most comfortable bikes to ride i have had. The transmission belongs on a tractor the way if clunks into gear but works just fine. it is not a perfect bike but i believe it the best bang for the buck in its category. I trade in a c50t with a c90rear end to get this.

I just checked out the UK Suzuki website and there's no mention of any of the cruiser line up. :( Using the wayback machine shows they only had the M1800 as of March 2018.

I think they discontinued it in the uk because of the eu and abs laws in force.
Too expensive to upgrade and the sales of these have been diminishing for a while.

That'd make sense from a business perspective. Sad though, since there aren't that many cruisers out around here. Seems like nearly everyone has a sport bike of some kind.
