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.

2001 Power Cruiser Comparo

We haven't picked a rational winner for a major shootout so far this year. What fun is that? If you just want to read the OEM's marketing hype, draw up a spreadsheet and pick a new bike without any real-world input -- for instance, actually riding and liv

2002 Honda VTX1800

There are cruisers and then there are the kind of cruisers that meander into the sort of territory that was previously the domain of such power-bikes as Yamaha's V-Max. On this side of the fence, power is the main attraction...

2000 Yamaha V Star Classic

Mossy Moor, August 22, 2000 -- We've had to wait a little while for an American Victory in England. It's now more than two years since the Independence Day launch of the Victory motorcycle in the USA but, at last, the line-up is coming over here.

2000 Yamaha Road Star

We only know one person who makes it a point to be just one of the masses -- he's still trying to latch onto the next comet-watching, grape juice-swilling, tree-hugging cult he can find. Luckily, he's not on our staff.

Road Star vs. Fat Boy Comparo

For many years, if you wanted to ride a big-bore, nasty-boy cruiser to play the part of neighborhood hoodlum, you had only one choice: Harley-Davidson. But now a number of Japanese manufacturers have stepped to the plate and are firing right and left at..

2000 Kawasaki Drifter 800

Motorcycle Online got the 800 CC version to try out, so we took her for a leisurely spin along the scenic streets of Torrance and up into the foothills of some local mountains.

First Ride: Year 2000 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic Fi

When first we saw Kawasaki's new Vulcan 1500 Classic Fi, it was hard not to smile knowing we'd spend the better part of the day traversing roughly 160 miles of the twistiest roads in Florida

2000 H-D FXSTB Night Train

Truth be told, I was a little nervous at the thought of riding Harley-Davidson's Year 2000 Night Train. I had given up riding two years ago after almost 30 in the saddle.

2000 Honda Shadow Sabre

Let's face it, the Year 2000 Honda Shadow Sabre's 54 horsepower at the rear wheel and 65 foot-pounds of torque, while very respectable, is not exactly the stuff upon which 21st Century high-performance dreams are built.
