Why the cruiser market is in trouble.
 
Spudly you bring up a great point why the cruiser market is in trouble. In addition, to bad demographics (a euphemistic way of saying baby boomers will no longer be able to ride either by death or illness)), many cruiser riders will become bored with cruisers. You can bet the new Busa will be better than ever... I actually like the Concours 14 and could see myself going cross country on one..

kpaul sez cruisers are a dying breed, get a bike that handles and stops better. It is far safer to ride a sportbike like the Busa than a Softtail.. Better to avoid the accident that be in one. Cruisers are sitting ducks..

"If MO wants to get readers on the edge of their seats, I hope you will see the demand for these bikes growing, and start a blog or regularly updated article dedicated to the next-gen Hayabusa."

--I don't think you want 7 months of entries stating "Nothing new to report".



I think it's odd that everyone is waiting for the new Busa to come out because they don't like the look of the ZX14. If I remember correctly, the Busa was also pegged as a love it or hate it bike when it came to looks.



From the info I've seen it seems like '08 is the year it will be redesigns. No one seems to have much info other than that, though.



I have no idea how accurate this site is (links to this site have pooped up on here now and then) but if you scroll down you will see some info and visuals about the 2008 Busa.



Again, take it with several grains of salt.

I just can't see the cruiser market being in trouble. You keep saying this, but it seems pretty healthy to me. All of your reasons for not liking cruisers are rational ones for you (giving you the benefit of the doubt, and I do have my doubts) but motorcycles are just not rational purchases. If rationality ruled, we'd all be driving Corollas.

Before you get your foot too far in your mouth you might want to read Fred Rau's mea culpa about predicting the demise of the cruiser in this months Motorcycle Consumer News....( You are an MCN subscriber aren't you???)
