2005 Suzuki Boulevard S40 from United States of America


Good first bike


The muffler came with a manufacturing problem, a crack, and I had to replace it. Also after 1,500 the engine started leaking oil.

General Comments:

The bike was a good choice for a beginner. It has plenty of power to cruise on the highway, and plenty power to accelerate and pass other cars when needed.

The brakes are not very reliable; on several occasions they locked and the bike started to spin.

I had to modify the handle bar to decrease vibration (this bike vibrates a lot!!!). I also put on heated grips and a windshield (absolutely required for comfortable highway rides).

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
