Summary:

Nice bike and an enjoyable ride

Faults:

Nothing so far.

General Comments:

The bike has a quick and smooth acceleration. The bike is well balanced and it handles nicely on the highways, acting like a bigger bike, but still the agility in the city to get around easily.

I’ve added a back-rest with a rack that allows me to commute to work during the day, and take my teenage girls to their soccer games at night. The bike has a comfortable seating position, although had to get used to it from riding my previous bike with the typical standard, sitting up configuration.

From an appearance view point, it has a nice flow and design.

Summary:

Handles well and looks great

Faults:

Plastic is easily scratched on front/rear fenders.

General Comments:

This bike is not for long trips. Anything over an hour and a half and you will feel slight discomfort, and after that it steadily gets worse. I just finished a 10 hour ride and feel like I have been beaten up. The seat that comes with it is not designed for long trips.

Besides the above, I have had no problems with it. It starts first try, handles great, and looks good going down the street.

Summary:

Great value

Faults:

None.

General Comments:

I love the look of my 07 M50 Boulevard. I added a Barons tach, chrome back rack on the back fender, and a thunder air kit, which reduced the size of the air cleaner by 3 cm in width, as the plastic stock air cleaner was a bit wide for total comfort.

The bike is very smooth and quiet. I would say a perfect cruiser actually; totally different from my Ninja ZX10, and CRF450R dirt bike.

For around town, you really can't get any better bike for your buck.

John.

Summary:

The M50 is hands down the best mid-size cruiser on the market today!

Faults:

Nothing!

General Comments:

This bike rocks! I’ve had my eye on the M50 line since they first came out in 2005. I finally got my hands on a limited edition 2007 model back in July, and 4,000 miles later, I have no regrets.

This bike is everything I’d hoped it would be and much more. It has far surpassed any expectations I may have had for it.

My friend had purchased a Vulcan 900 and tried to get me to do the same. Another friend tried to talk me into an 883 Sportster as well, but after a lot of research, I found that the M50 was a better bike not only for the money, but for the additional features as well.

The Harley was ruled out first because of two reasons; it was carbureted instead of fuel injected, and it was air cooled instead of liquid. Not to mention the crapy looking base pipes it comes with. I’d end up paying 10 grand for the bike just to make it sound like a Harley!

I chose the M50 over the Vulcan 900 mainly because of the low maintenance shaft drive versus the belt. Not to mention the looks! It’s a beautifully designed bike! The power and acceleration are great also. I can’t say enough great things about this bike, but there are a couple of things that bug me:

1: That rear brake is too soft. I took it to the dealership for adjustment, and it's working better, but a disk would work much better.

2: The bike wasn’t loud enough for me, so thanks to a video I found online (Debaffle this!), I de-baffled my M50! If anyone out there is thinking about it, then check out this video and go for it. It really is as easy as it looks, and it sounds almost as good as a Harley now!

This review about the M50 comparing it with the Vulcan 900 and the Harley Sportster 883, and for the reasons of choice to buy the M50 instead of the above, makes this person's review absolutely spot on.

I chose the M50 for the very same reasons. This person responsible for this review is one very classy guy, and has done some expert researching to result in the M50 choice of bike... And yes you are also spot on about the M50's looks... absolutely BEAUTIFUL looking bike, what more can I say!!!
