Top Speed Top Six Cruisers to buy under $10,000
We here love the laid-back reclined riding styles that make covering vast expanses of arrow-straight asphalts a pleasure. Being the closest thing to flying without leaving the ground, Cruisers have been the incarnation of the ‘30s to ‘60s American lifestyles. Large motors with plenty of low-end torque, forward set footpeg position define any modern-day cruisers.
Here is our list of new cruiser motorcycles under $10,000 for you and me to buy in 2020 that gets us to cruise, be at one with our bike, taking in the sights and the scents, fresh air washing over, and supposedly cleansing the soul. All this, without breaking our bank.
Harley-Davidson lends its flair to the GMC Sierra limited edition truck
For 20 many years, Indiana based Tuscany Motor Company would often give us enthusiasts Harley-Davidson special limited-edition trucks based out of Ford’s most famous pickup, the F-150. Ford never had a factory kit directly, but Tuscany customized these cosmetic packages under the direction of the Milwaukee firm, reflecting notable and iconic features of a cruiser almost every year.
For 2020, Tuscany has shed the Ford badge to a brand new GMC Sierra and have launched the Harley-Davidson GMC Sierra Truck, with the Fat Boy being the inspiration for this build. The limited run of 250 examples will include over 65 proprietary components designed alongside Harley-Davidson to uplift the vibe and the character of the already striking Sierra truck.
Curtiss Motorcycle’s "Hades" gets a matured re-take on its design
After being rebranded as “Curtiss Motorcycle Co.,” the firm went head-on with making full-blown exquisite electric-powered motorcycles. They showcased the "Zeus" concept a couple of years back, and most recently, the “Hades” concept came out with an unusual and wild, phallic induced design form.
Honestly, this created hilarious responses within the industry scribes and the readers, taking us back to the grade school jokes and pranks. Fortunately, Curtiss has responded with subtle tweaks to give it a little modesty just before the Spring 2020 production slot. Phew!
Happy New year folks :) The 20 most exciting motorcycles being served up for 2020
2020 is a new decade, a new year for all of us to leap and move forward fearlessly. To re-invent and to make room for things which really matters, things that will uplift you physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Throw up your arms, wash off that alcohol stink, and go get yourself a new motorcycle. Works just the same.
Here’s our top twenty production motorcycles coming in 2020 that does all of that, and more.
2020 Honda Rebel 300 / 500
Honda rolls into the new decade with the first overhaul to its newest-generation Rebel range. It has only been a few years since the classic Rebel line was replaced by the current iteration, and the added features are largely due to feedback from the new rider base. New suspension components improve the ride along with upgrades to the lighting and clutch pack to increase overall safety and expand its buyer base.
2016 - 2020 Ducati XDiavel / XDiavel S
It’s safe to say that “cruiser” isn’t exactly the first word that comes to mind when I think of Ducati, or even the third, yet here we are with the XDiavel and its slightly dressier “S” stablemate carrying the brand into uncharted waters. The “X” signifies the cross and blending of the two worlds — cruiser and sport — and the end result is what the factory calls a “Techno-cruiser” due to its melding of Italian performance DNA and a more cruise-tastic rider triangle than you normally see from this brand. Powered by a 1,262 cc Testastretta engine, the XDiavel duo put the “sport” in “sport-cruiser” and opens the performance field to folks that ordinarily wouldn’t have such an option.
Top 5 new Cruisers coming in 2020
Being the closest thing to flying without leaving the ground, Cruisers have been the incarnation of the ‘30s to ‘60s American lifestyles. Large motors with plenty of low-end torque, forward set footpegs, and a laid-back reclined riding position define any modern-day cruisers. Traditionally, large V-twins ran under the hoods, but inline engines have become more common these days.
Here is our list of new cruiser motorcycles coming in hot in 2020 that gets us to simply cruise, at one with our bike, taking in the sights and smells, the cool air washing over, and supposedly cleansing the soul.
The 5 most radical motorcycles coming in 2020
2020 will see the population of Earth reach 8 billion, the tallest building completed, the colonization of Mars begun, and towards the end, we’ll have the United States presidential election. Amidst such exciting (and some not as much) events that’ll shape a new future, our world of motorcycling only keeps getting more exhilarating with new mind-altering machines on two wheels.
With avant-garde styling elements, ingenious technologies, and state-of-the-art equipment lists, these machines shatter the fabric of our imagination and show us an entirely new sight of motorcycling perceptions. Although all of these motorcycles might look like the futuristic concepts they can be, believe me when I say this, they are all production models for you and me to buy. (Well, not me for sure. I only make money enough to write about them. )
2019 - 2020 Ducati Diavel 1260 / 1260 S
Italian powerhouse Ducati hit MY2019 with an all-new pair of Diavel models for the sport-naked sector: the Diavel 1260 and 1260 S. Both toe the family line as far as aesthetics are concerned, and they run the same Testastretta powerplant so the differences between the two essentially come down to the trim package and chassis features. Performance and safety go hand-in-hand with a number of top-shelf electronic goodies to help you keep all that power under control. This bike is truly a rolling tribute to Ducati’s ingenuity, and the best is under the hood hidden away from plain sight.
2020 ARCH Motorcycle KRGT-1
Arch Motorcycle, the brand new makers of the “American Power Cruisers,” has updated its flagship model, the KRGT-1 for 2020. Featuring over 20 major changes, and more than 150 newly designed and manufactured components, this $85,000 machine harks on the ‘obsession for an amazing soul’ for Keanu Reeves and his vision.
To up its badassery status, the machine now gets bestowed with beefier brakes, Arch spec Öhlins, fancy materials, enhanced electronics, and some fine aesthetic refinements. The 2032cc S&S twin-cam V-twin drive remains the workhorse but is tuned to deliver greater torque and power. Then, of course, is the bespoke ergonomic and aesthetic package to tailor the KRGT-1 to every individual’s spec.
FYI, KRGT is the initials of Hollywood’s Keanu Reeves and the self-taught engineer Gard Hollinger.
The most expensive motorcycles currently in production
Let’s just say you’ve made it big out there in the world, bought a billion-dollar mansion somewhere along the coast or up in the mountains, and you have enough space to indulge with all sorts of gadgetry and machines.
But for that whiff of pure unadulterated freedom, you know you need one motorcycle that can truly make sense of all of that. An experience no other motorcycle could possibly give. Which one’s going to be your tool?
Here’s our way of spoiling you for choices. A list of those breathtaking machines on two wheels you could buy right now that are truly made for opulence, opportunities, and most vividly, to make a statement.
Which motorcycles on sale today give the best mpg?
The beginning of this century saw the world views changing gradually towards climate change and the need to preserve the environment. This, along with stringent policies, has forced the manufacturers to develop motorcycles that can run cleaner fuel and extract the maximum economy from it, sometimes even at the cost of performance.
Bad news for people who seek the element of thrill, but a pretty good one for someone living in urban jungles where folks prefer commuting on a motorcycle rather thank a car for its practicality and frugal fuel-efficiency. Then there are us few who love the idea of putting serious miles on two-wheels and living the adventure.
We here have compiled a list to give you the best available tools for such situations and save some money on gas while at it.
2018 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Iron 1200
Harley-Davidson expands the Sportster family with the new-in-2018 Iron 1200. Retro is in, so the ’70s-esque paint and custom touches drawn from that era give the Iron 1200 plenty of nostalgic value. Power comes from the venerable Evolution engine to the tune of 73 pound-feet of torque to give this ride modern performance that belies the dated veneer. A classic dish with custom spices, the new Iron 1200 raises the Iron stable’s displacement ceiling to draw new customers from a market that has been in decline for over a decade.
2016 - 2020 Yamaha Bolt
The Yamaha Bolt continues into 2020 with that classic "bobber" style, high tank, and short wheelbase, folks expect to see in old-school styling. Powered by an air-cooled V-twin engine, but with a plenty of technology on board, the Bolt is a good in-between size: not too small that you’ll outgrow it soon and not so big that it is intimidating for new riders. The bobber-style solo seat, easy cruisin’ rider triangle, and naked-bike look make the Bolt a choice little bar hopper or commuter ride.
2016 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Iron 883
When Harley-Davidson makes changes to the Iron 883, they stay faithful to at least one important aspect – performance. While XL models have never been known as ’fast’ bikes, they certainly have a well-deserved reputation as ’quick’ bikes. Nothing in the Harley world comes out of the hole like a Sporty, or handles the corners like one, and the Iron 883 maintains that tradition with aplomb. Bikes like this show how the XL line has not only survived, but also thrived in the entry-level and sport-minded American markets.
2017 - 2019 Honda Rebel 300 / Rebel 500
Honda brought one of its most recognized model families into the 21st century with a complete overhaul of the much celebrated Rebel range in 2017. Available as the Rebel 300 and 500, this reworked line features water-cooled mills and fuel-injection induction control to meet modern and near-future emissions standards. A sportier look greets the eye this time around, though the Rebel still targets the same small-[cruiser-mot392], entry-level market.
2015 - 2020 Suzuki Boulevard C50 / Boulevard C50T
Suzuki unveiled the Boulevard C50 back in 2005 after renaming its “Volusia” bike of prior model years. The C50 and C50T carry straight through into 2020 with a mid-displacement engine to serve as Suzuki’s mid-size cruiser and weekend tour bike. Smooth acceleration and comfortable seating combine with laced wheels and classic styling to keep the C50s on the list of middleweight contenders in the two-wheeled market.
2015 - 2020 Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S.
Introduced as the bad-ass brother of Suzuki’s M109R, the Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S. carries forward into MY20 with its 109 cubic inch (1,783 cc) engine. Yeah, B.O.S.S. stands for ’Blacked Out Special Suzuki’, but I’m gonna call it ’Blacked Out Super Sweet’. It might not be the fastest cruiser on the market, but it is definitely a power-cruiser and it really wants to go when you let out the clutch.
