Good Points
Comfortable ride with long haul cruiser capability.
Very economical at cruising speed due to fuel injection. Low maintenance due to shaft drive, fuel injection, and liquid cooling.

Bad Points
Lose some of the badging. If it didn't say C50 no one would be able to judge the size of the bike. It has the same reach and feel of a Yamaha Road Star 1600.

General Comments
If you want to get into a cruiser to check out your interest in the lifestyle, the Suzuki C50 is a great choice. It is lighter than a big cruiser but gives you the same wheel base and comfortable riding position of a much bigger bike. The look and finish of the bike is excellent with a massive headlight, floor boards, chrome engine and transmission case, and fitted bags in the Touring model.



The C50 went up Roger's pass in B.C. with no shifting down and plenty of torque to overtake the RV's and semi's. The exhaust has a hearty baritone that will not be mistaken for a Harley but it has a distinctive Vtwin torquey sound that is fun to play with under bridges. Driving conservatively on my first highway trip to break in the engine, I managed to average 65 miles per gallon (Imperial). As you push the speed above 70 mph the mileage will fall to less than 60 mpg but it is consistently 10 percent more fuel efficient than a Yamaha Vstar 650 under identical conditions.



You can get into a C50T for under $9,000 Canadian if you shop around. You can't find anything else in this category for this price and you will have the power and performance of the average 1100cc cruisers.
