Cruiser Motorcycle Reviews

Cruisers come in a wide array of styles and displacements and are designed with a laid-back riding position. Appealing to the bad boys in us all, the majority of contemporary cruisers are modeled after classic American bikes like Harley-Davidsons and Indians. A V-Twin motor is the typical powerplant, most often air-cooled, although that’s not always the case. A Cruiser rider generally is set into a position with feet forward and hands in a neutral or high position. This makes cruisers a popular choice for casual riding. And depending on the model and its options, they can also be suitable for distance riding, spawning a sub-class of Touring Cruisers.
