2020 Cruisers Are Making The Rounds

The cruisers are coming, the cruisers are coming.

Although the terms "cruiser" and "factory custom" weren't coined until about 50 years ago, motorcycle manufacturers like Harley-Davidson, Indian, and Honda produced motorcycles that embodied the terms long before—take the 1949 Honda Dream D for example. Now, the cruiser is its own motorcycle category and we have many offerings from Harley-Davidson, Indian, Suzuki, Triumph, and Yamaha to choose from. Below you will find teasers and more information about the upcoming 2020 models that we have coverage on so far. Which one are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments section below.
