Cruiser World is Coming

Get ready for it. Cruiser sportbikes. Cruiser sport tourers. Cruiser dual sports. Cruiser world is coming.

The big, air cooled v-twin (or, at least, it will look air cooled) will soon find its way into every type of motorcycle . . . in every category. Honda’s VTX1800 is just a power cruiser — a concept that has been around a while. Soon, cruisers will enter motorcycle categories you wouldn’t expect.

It’s the heart throb of the big v-twin that ties it all together. Manufacturers want to put this “rhythm of life” in every type of frame, and bring the “cruiser spirit” to every motorcycling function.

Will it sell? Your guess is as good as mine, but it probably depends on the particular machine’s styling and execution. It should be interesting to watch.
