Last year, Suzuki announced several new or significantly updated motorcycles, including the third-generation Hayabusa hyper-sportbike, the revamped GSX-S1000 naked bike, and the all-new GSX-S1000GT sport-tourer. We’ve tested the Hayabusa, and we’ll get a chance to ride the GSXs soon.
Meantime, Suzuki has announced the return of several popular models for 2022, including the V-Strom 1050XT, V-Strom 1050XT Adventure, Boulevard C50, Boulevard C50T, and GSX250R ABS.
2022 Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT
The V-Strom 1050XT is a perennial favorite in the adventure-touring segment, powered by a 1,037cc 90-degree that sends 96 hp and 66 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheel, according to our 2020 tour test. It’s also equipped with the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System, which uses a 6-axis IMU to inform a full suite of electronics, including ride modes, cornering ABS and traction control, cruise control, and more. The V-Strom 1050XT also has an adjustable windscreen, handguards, a two-piece seat with height adjustability for the rider’s section, an accessory bar, a centerstand, and much more. It’s available in a cool Metallic Oort Gray with Glass Sparkle Black color scheme with blue-anodized tubeless spoked wheels. MSRP is $14,849.
2022 Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT Adventure
The V-Stroke 1050XT Adventure makes a statement with its Suzuki Champion Yellow and Glass Sparkle Black colorway with silver and blue accents as well as gold-anodized tubeless spoked wheels. Added to the 1050XT’s impressive standard equipment list is a set of Suzuki’s quick release 37-liter aluminum panniers, LED fog lights, and heated grips. MSRP is $17,049.
2022 Suzuki Boulevard C50
Suzuki’s Boulevard line of cruisers has delivered solid value, reliability, and style for years. The Boulevard C50 is powered by a liquid-cooled 805cc (49ci) 45-degree V-Twin that delivers plenty of low-end torque. The C50’s traditional styling includes a kicked-out fork, valance-style fenders, and a staggered, chromed, dual exhaust system. The Boulevard C50 is available in Candy Daring Red (shown) or Solid Iron Gray, and MSRP is $8,609.
2022 Suzuki Boulevard C50T
If you’re interested in a touring cruiser, the Boulevard C50T should be right up your alley. Travel-ready features include a spacious riding position, an aerodynamic windshield, and custom studded saddlebags that match the studded rider and passenger seats. The C50T is available in Pearl Brilliant White with classic whitewall tires. MSRP is $10,059.
2022 Suzuki GSX250R ABS
An entry-level sportbike doesn’t have to look like it. The GSX250R ABS has an aerodynamic full fairing that fits right in with full-sized sportbikes. It’s powered by an approachable but exciting 248cc liquid-cooled parallel-Twin, and it has ABS-equipped single-disc brakes front and rear. Riders of any age and experience level will appreciate the GSX250R’s fuel efficiency, nimble handling, and comfortable riding position. It’s available in Crystal Blue with Pearl Nebular Black. MSRP is $4,999.
