Its torque range is more usable, hitting its lb-ft peak just as immediately but leveling off more slowly, dropping down significantly only at rpm.

The reach to the bars set me at a forward cant, with slightly forward footpegs that suited my inch inseam fine-knees were bent but not locked.
2008 Suzuki M109R2 – First Ride
The headlight nacelle is still love-it-or-hate-it. So what if Art Center graduates call it derivative, plus various other things we can’t print in a m109r magazine? Feed the throttle, drop the clutch, kachunk.
From there, though, the Rocket’s power plummets like a stone, while the Suzuki’s simply levels off, giving plenty of usable power all the way to the rpm redline.
Like the standard MR, the R2 comes with both a passenger saddle and seat cowling, and you can swap in either one by way of a few Allen bolts. Our suspicions proved pretty accurate-the Suzuki’s For instance, steering-head bearings are inspected at miles. Below that an easy-to-read analog speedometer rides on the front of the fuel tank.
But the ergos are surprisingly humane for tall types, and the mufflers express themselves without compelling the accountant’s live-in mother-in-law to call the cops when you roll in late on bowling night.
The torque keeps coming to the redline where the bike is still pulling hard. The rich whomp emanating from the stainless steel exhaust is a welcome change from the neutered pings we’ve heard on some big cruisers lately. With this shaft drive, however, you still get drivetrain lash from the back.
2008 Suzuki Boulevard M109R2
After checking the owner’s manual for service schedules we called local shops to see what the time and parts costs would be through 15, miles.
To make a smooth transition you have to roll on slowly or brace for an initial jerk, and things can get sloppy if you jam the throttle while in a corner.
Not so much because of any power concerns it still packs the biggest pistons in the land ; it’s just that, well, it’s not really cut out for touring duty. Where else are you going to get enough steam to give Mr. Always make sure you understand what the shop is going to do and what you’re going to be charged for. Then we went to our Superflow CycleDyn dynamometer to compare the numbers. And then there’s the power delivery. Frankly we’d forgotten how much fun the MR is, so when Suzuki called us with the news that the much-delayed MR2 had finally landed on these shores, we practically wet ourselves in anticipation of riding the hp beast.
The thrill ain’t gone: The problems begin with imperfect fueling: They’re certainly contenders for the throne, but we’ll need a proper comparison with other powermongers to tell the true tale. What it is cut out for is power cruising.
Suzuki MR2 – First Ride | Motorcycle Cruiser
Efi, 56mm Throttle Bodies Lubrication: However you look at 1m09r2, the MR2 is a winner. As for handling, the Suzuki is less of a wrestling match than other wide-tired cruisers, though you still feel some resistance from the R2’s specially designed Dunlops. The R2’s styling and flowing bodywork likewise mimic the standard R. If they need to be adjusted, the dealer may charge extra. The R2’s fuel-injected mill is just as rev-happy, and yes, the biggest pistons of any gasoline-burning motor mm can still be found here.
Shaft Chassis Overall Length: Rev It Monster Boots: The result seems sportier, but really we’re just happy the Boulevard-iers didn’t screw with the original’s dyno-chart-busting performance.
And Suzuki said as much at the bike’s world launch in Texas back in Turn the ignition lock below the seat, hit the starter and the motor comes alive. It hits hard immediately and builds all the way to the redline.
