The middleweight cruiser that has reached new heights in performance, styling and value ever since its debut — and in the process, redefined what middleweight cruising is all about. Motorcycle Cruiser Magazine crowned it both "Cruiser of the Year" and "Best Value" the very first season it hit the streets, hailing it as bike that "has raised the bar for middleweight cruisers."
