Suzuki Intruder M1500 / Boulevard M90

Suzuki VZ1500 Intruder was first introduced in 2009 and was intended for the markets of North America, Europe and Asia.


Main competitors:

The Suzuki Intruder M1500 / Boulevard M90 was based on a frame from the flagship version Suzuki Intruder M1800R / Boulevard M109R and a redesigned engine from Suzuki VL1500 Intruder , increased compression ratio, 4 valves per cylinder and a number of other improvements, which ultimately increased the maximum power to 106 hp and torque to 137 Nm.

In all other respects, the Suzuki Intruder M1500 / Boulevard M90 was very much like the M109R model - Suzuki's marketing ploy was to offer the market a cheaper alternative to the M109R, which would be as similar to it as possible.

Despite the interesting concept, the Suzuki Intruder M1500 / Boulevard M90 model outside the American market enjoyed rather weak demand. This led to the fact that Intruder M1500 gradually began to disappear from dealers in European countries, as well as the name itself. As a result, only American modifications of the Boulevard M90 remained on the market today, which continue to be produced to this day.

In 2013, the liquid engine from the Suzuki Boulevard M90 completely migrated to the classic version Suzuki Boulevard C90, which received the abbreviation B.O.S.S. Despite the same engines, the C90 and M90 deliver different power and torque - the classic version of the C90 is "throttled" to 77.8 hp.
