My bike now has over 1.500 miles on it. It’s vary reliable with no issues. Great quality and fit and finish. I have to ride seven miles to mountainous trails ride dirt roads and single track rocky trail and perform super. And ride the seven miles home , stay in drive mode and you will get about 35 miles I usually have at least 20% battery left. Mine Ultra Bee 🐝 is equipped with 21”/18”wheel set. And Surron’s street legal wiring harness/signal, and tail light kit. Also charge the rear sprocket from stock 46 tooth to a 50. Reducing the top speed down to 50 mph from 56. Usually run my ASR /traction control on one while riding on the single track trails . So far it’s belt reduction has not been an issue, nor haven’t even had to adjust it. All in all pleased with this little bike. With it, low seat height in capable dirt, suspension and brakes.

Seems to corner nice vs weight of bike suzuki is a winner I'm a older rider and comfort is important vs speed. Changed oil using suzuki brand 17.00 a quart seems to run quite and responds to throttle nicely.

Fell in love at first sight when I saw this bike at my local dealer. I bought it used with 14,000 miles on it. I've gone on some long trips, and shorter rides out on county roads near where I live outside Atlanta. Just a great overall bike. Shaft driven is smooth. Good response. Top in is limited to about 100 mph. (I ride with some speed demons) Plan on keeping it for a very long time.

I bought this as a left-over '05 in early 2006. Saw the transport arrive at the dealer, picked it out while it was still in the crate partially assembled. Picked it up later that day with 6/10 of a mile on the odometer. Since then I've put 68, 750 miles on it, some not so gentle. I love this bike... read more

Dealership was fairly misleading on this bike. Missing a few parts, dirty air filter. One front fork compression adjuster is frozen, can’t adjust it. Missing the front fork reflectors, these are needed to pass inspection. Engine has a ticking noise as well. Will need to take it to a local dealership to check out all of these issues. Very unimpressed with this dealer. In my opinion, all of these issues should have been addressed before selling the bike. Will not purchase from them again

I have been to a few motorcycle rallies and have always received compliments on how the bike looks. My wife and I have ridden almost all over Arkansas on my 2009 Suzuki C50 S.E. I almost bought a smaller bike for my first bike but am so glad I didn't. This bike handles my wife and I with ease. It's fun to ride and gets over 50 miles to the gallon. I agree with other riders of this bike - it needs a sixth gear although it cruises at 70 mph. with no problem. My wife and I have ridden about 300 miles in one day and the bike was very comfortable. Lastly, I might add, it has a very affordable price.

Mine's a C50C I turned into a C50CT. I bought this bike in '07 new. I had carburated bikes before but this is my first bike with the combination I wanted - fuel injection, water cooled, shaft drive and Mag rims/tubeless tires. The only problem I have ever had is a small brake issue after swapping to a new set of rubber and turn signal lenses coming apart. Both are small issues barely mentionable. This bike has never failed to start, never stalled on downshift, nothing. I also purchased it with intentions of moving up in a couple of years and since decided it's all I will need. The aftermarket Mustang seat will make my butt numb after a while but I am used to it now. I will get a tingle in my feet and hands after a while at 80 mph. but I'm used to that, also. There's plenty of power for me 2-up and fuel economy in the mid 40's. I love this bike's fuel injection and would not have a bike without it now. I trust it enough to make a cross country trip on it soon and not think twice. It is a great bike for the price - I'm satisfied.

My friend and I just took our 2007 & 2009 C-50's on an 1,191-mile ride around central, eastern, valley, & metro Oregon. During the ride I kept track of our miles between fill ups, & then I figured (with a calculator) our mpg. From the Salem area to Bend we were at 47 mpg, which was the lowest mpg. during the entire ride. Our next lowest mpg. was 51, which was from Redmond to Estacada. Everything in between was 56 mpg. all the way up to 73 mph. (which was from Burns to John Day.) Most of the time we were ranging in the mid to high 60's & lower 70's for mpg. I was also very impressed with the comfort of my 2009. We were riding nearly 10 hour days, and I never cramped up. During the 10 hours of riding we made several stops, although very brief (2 to 15 minutes), except for a 45 minute to 1 hour lunch. My tailbone started to hurt after about 9.5 hours. Furthermore this bike also had plenty of power to move me up the steepest mountain passes, even while fully loaded for a week's worth of camping. I've owned much larger bikes (Yamaha Roadliner 1900, Kawasaki Concours 1400, Kawasaki VN900 Vulcan, and I have ridden the Honda ST1300, and the Goldwing 1200) and I must say that this bike is more nimble, comfortable, and gets much better fuel economy. I have also found that in the type of riding that I normally do, I don't need a big bike, it's just overkill. As a side note, the insurance is also lower if you have less than 1000cc's. The only downfall that I have found with this bike thus far is that it is not a great freeway bike. It will run at speeds greater then 65 for long periods of time, but I really don't think that this bike was designed for that. This bike is the perfect bike for the city, county back roads and state highways. In addition, the speedometer is off by a percentage. I figure its off by 5 to 9 mph at speeds greater then 65 mph, in our favor. If you are looking for a great bike that is easy to handle, is out of the "Box" comfortable, looks good, and gets good mpg., and your ego dosen't get in the way, then this is the bike to own.

The 2009 C50 SE is a great bike regardless of the rider's size. I'm tall and fit on this bike better than an HD Road King, which has me sitting on top of the tank even with seat modifications. It is only 805cc but keeps up with larger bikes. The gears could be spread out a bit more or a sixth gear would be nice, but the bike still has good power. The benefit of the smaller engine, of course, is the bike is lighter and more maneuverable. It is a great purchase for new or long time riders. My brother-in-law has one of these bikes but an earlier model. He is heavier than I am and his bike moves him just as well.
