It was in model year 1998 that Suzuki launched its first big 'metric cruiser' naming it the VL 1500 Intruder – feet-forward, shaft drive and a smooth 1,500 cc v-twin with balance shafts to ensure said smoothness – to re-launch, re-brand the series in 2005 as Boulevard with the C90, now with 'multi-jet' fuel injection 'borrowed' from the GSX-R series of superbikes and a 32-bit ECU processing chip to sort the electronics. Said motor developed 67 horsepower at 4,800 rpm (light years away from the GSX-R's, any GSX-R, heady 12,500 or so rpm) and a massive 84 lb-ft of torque at a lowly 2,300 rpm. A re-designed 3.7-gallon gas tank was added to 'top off' a new look too. The C90 ran through 2013.

The metric cruiser is a whole new category invented by a motorcycle industry segment that wanted to compete with Harley-Davidson's stranglehold on the so-called cruiser market – cruising is touring without the distance in between destinations. The Japanese big four got into the market as did BMW, sort of, together with Victory then Indian. Debate continues over whether an American brand that isn't from Milwaukee can actually be a 'metric cruiser' but it's easier if it can! Suzuki certainly made, and makes, a fine cruiser – competitive in the showroom, in the shop and on the boulevard.

This C90 has been in long-term storage, let go in an estate sale, and thus was recently serviced and is now totally roadworthy. A new Corbin seat is installed though the original comes with the bike. The battery box cover is dented on one side.
