i have just purchased a 2009 s40 boulevard in red and white,awaiting its arrival,paid $4995 nz dollars with five thousand ks on the clock.ive been riding a 86savage ls650 for the past two years,its done 100,000 ks and is still going strong,it does use oil though and the exhaust has seen better days its very loud,it always backfires when i turn it off lol.i always get comments on the look of it,it has a harlequin paint job which changes color.any way im hoping the boulevard is better since it is a 5speed and it wont use oil.i think these bikes are great,plenty of torque,easy to handle,cheap to run and maintain and you gotta love those handle bars just like a sporty.
I purchased my 2008 in July 2010 (used) with 3700 miles. I have had no problems, great MPG (62) at my last fill up. Not the biggest of bikes, but suits my 5'10" 180 Frame. Not looking to impress anyone, just wanted solid, reliable and an attractive ride. I really got it with the S40. Have added a driver backrest, saddle bags, clock, thermometer, fork bag and small trunk bag. I couldn't be happier and look forward to riding it each time. You can't go wrong with this belt drive, easy on the wallet, reliable and good looking/performing jewel.
2009 Suzuki S40 - I have had the bike 3 months now and put 1300 miles mostly commuting 12 miles to work - non freeway.
I have had it up to 85mph and cruised on the freeways at 70 although it does vibrate quite a bit over 65. I am 6'0" and 330 pounds and it has plenty of power. This weekend will be my first long cruise (100 miles one way). I know my butt will be numb after this one but I have plenty of places to stop along the way if I need to. Great commuter and first time bike.
The bike handles very well, light weight and a comfortable ride. The only thing I would change is the tank. A larger tank would be nice on the long trips.
I've had this bike for about a year now! I have to say it was an excellent choice. I read alot of reviews regarding this bike prior to purchasing. This bike has great power and will cruise down the highway at 70mph with no problem. I have had it up to 85mph. If you aren't going to be cruising on highways all day long, you can't go wrong with this bike. Don't know why anyone would say this isn't a highway bike. You can cruise at 10 plus mph on any posted highway speed. If you want to do 100 mph plus hour, buy a crock rocket. Great lightweight bike, excellent cornering ability. Belt driven is a real plus. I would recommend this bike to anyone looking for their first bike or for someone who wants a low maintence bike.
I love riding the bike. I does everything I want it to do except you have to always worry about, do I have enough gas and if I don't is there a gas station open on weekends that I can get some. This is the only thing that is terribly wrong with this bike, not big enough gas tank. I' tanking my bike to a chop shop and they are going to install a three and a half gallon tank on it and I will gladly pay them for it. Oh and they are going to install a gas gauge. I asked the dealer, which by the way are very nice people, that how's come when you buy a large riding mower does it come with a fuel gauge and an S40 doesn't even come with one. Doesn't make sense to me!!
Great little commuter bike. It handles extremely well due to it's size and weight which makes it fun in traffic. On the flip side it isn't made for the highway or higher speeds. The seat does make ones butt numb after a little while and it looks rather cheap.
I have had my S40 for almost ayear & it is A great bike. Having not had A bike for 20 plus years it was the perfect choice & I have no regreats. It's a good bike but if you want a town bike buy A small twin & get better mile's to the gallon if you want to tour buy A bigger bike (if you are ready for one) if like me you don't know what you want It's the best value for money bike out there.
Excellent first bike if your looking for something that has more power than a 250cc... I use this bike for a 19 mile commute oneway to work and then back daily.. Excellent on gas mileage, great accelleration... I ride approx 8 of the 19 miles on the highway and have no problems with keeping up with and passing cars....
Bought this bike for my work commute which is about 13 miles.
It runs great and gets excellent gas mileage,I always look forward to riding it.
I'm 6'0" and 250 lbs and the bike still has lots of pep.
Not a tremendoudous amount of power but thats not what I have it for.
This is the best-value starter bike available, in a 650cc. If you'e a woman, I'd recomend the the Suzuki 250, or either of the Honda 250's. Anyway, This bike is pretty solid: Strong throttle, great MPG, great for getting the feel of a cruiser. Highway travel is suitable, but quite as comfortable as city and country-road travel. If you're going to be on the highway a lot, then I'd say bump up to a 750cc, so the wind won't push you around as much, and you won't feel the road quite so much either. This bike is great on gas and truly has a nice feel to it. It's comfortable and low. I love mine.
This is a bike that a do it your selfer can fix without paying the very expensive service charges at the shop. Although after going 3k miles on the bike all I have had to do is change the oil, you simply can appreciate the very basic design and see that if you desire you can fix anything you want to on this bike. You can't say that about a lot of the other bikes, i.e. Honda VT600 which was difficult to change the battery on. The main benefit the big bikes versus this bike is that they cruise better and are more comfy on the hi-way otherwise all the other benefits go to this great around town and country roads cruiser. So far this bike has been bullet proof and I have rode 3k miles with no problems whatsoever. The bike is light and is easy to maneuver in the city and yet is excellent for shorter hi-way rides. Now, you can go on a long 300 mile jaunt and I have, but it is not going to be as comfy as a bigger bike and you are going to pay a third of the price also for this bike versus the big boys. Oh well, eventually this poor guy will get a Vulcan 900 classic but I am a loyal guy and I will always keep my bullet-proof s40 and I will always fix it when it needs it because it is worth it. Hope this helps I recommend the bike as a get you to work with 50+ mpg reliable workhos. ek
