Cruiser Motorcycles

A few examples of the “Cruiser” breed, include the following: The Harley-Davidson FX Dyna, FL Touring and Sportster series of motorcycles, Honda’s legendary Gold Wing Valkyrie, CTX and Shadow series of bikes, Indian’s resurrected Chief series, Kawasaki’s Vulcan lineup, Triumph’s Rocket III, America and Speedmaster models, Victory’s Vegas, Cross-Country and Vision cruisers, and Star’s Bolt, Stryker, and RoadStar lines.

Cruisers have long been the sales kings of the North American motorcycle market. Available in a wide array of styles and displacements, cruisers are designed with a laid-back riding position. The majority of contemporary cruisers are modeled after classic American bikes like the Harley-Davidsons and Indians from the 1930’s and ‘40s. A V-Twin is the typical powerplant of choice, and a Cruiser’s rider is generally set into a semi-reclined 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 long distance touring, spawning the sub-class known as Touring Cruisers.
