Suzuki Intruder C800C / Boulevard C50C

Suzuki VL800 Intruder (Volusia) appeared in 2001 as a classic modification Suzuki VS800 Intruder, released in parallel with it until 2004 (in the American market in parallel with Boulevard S50, until 2009) ... The model was also available in the Japanese market under the name Suzuki Intruder 800 Classic, selling there until 2006.

Since 2005, the VL800 Volusia has received a restyling and changed its name to '' Suzuki Boulevard C50 (for the American market) and ' Suzuki Intruder C800 ' (for markets in Europe and other countries). The main changes concerned the appearance (new design of the air filter cover, taillight, headlight, etc.) and the technical part: the new model receives an injector and reduces the fuel tank capacity to 15.5 liters (instead of 17.0 liters).

Since 2006, two new modifications have appeared - '' Suzuki Boulevard C50C (Intruder C800C) ' and ' Suzuki Boulevard C50T . The first version features cast tubeless rims, and the second - a touring body kit (windshield, wardrobe trunks, backrest, riveted saddle) and tires with a white bead.

In 2009, the Suzuki Intruder C800 (Boulevard C50) gets the SDTV dual-throttle injector, and in 2016, the final year is produced for Europe. Currently, the model is only available in the US market in two versions - Suzuki Boulevard C50 (spoke wheels) and Suzuki Boulevard C50T.

On the common base of the Suzuki Intruder 800 Volusia and Suzuki Intruder C800 (Boulevard C50), the version Suzuki Boulevard M50 (Intruder M800) was also created, which became the successor of ).

In the domestic Japanese market, there was also a 400 cc modification of the Suzuki VL800 Volusia and Suzuki Intruder C50 models - Suzuki VL400 Intruder Classic, which was removed from the production line in 2016.
