When taking it off the side-stand, firing it up and moving off to that “first impression” kilometre, the exciting pull-away torque definitely made for smiles! There’s no confusion about feeling you’re on a cruiser. The Low Rider S has plenty of attitude and resembles the model from the 80s – based on the Dyna platform – with that beach-cruiser style.
The Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin looks serious and fast with it’s tucked in front wheel close to the engine almost like it’s ready to jump. It’s upright and comfortable, and a multi-tasking model that’s easy to ride.
It is hard to believe that the Kawasaki Ninja 400 Kawasaki Racing Team edition is a 400. It’s likely you’ve heard that before of this model. The popular Ninja 300 was replaced with the 400 – and this Ninja is incredibly fun to ride!
An old school style in a new school ride! the Harley-Davidson Iron 883 provides its owner a platform for creative customization. Blacked out, no chrome and no apologies exclaim Harley.
The 2018 Harley-Davidson Sport Glide is truly a fun, intuitive, motorcycle to ride. It’s the perfect cruiser for women motorcycle riders, for intermediate riders and those seeking a fun undressed – or dressed – cruiser for commuting or touring.
The Bobber Black dips further into the Bobber style and performance. It puts you out there, and sets you apart. True to Bobber style, there’s no excess here. It’s a minimalistic ride creating an “out there” sensation of motorcycling.

The first Indian Scout was introduced in 1920 and has been part of the portfolio throughout the brand’s history. The Bobber today, is based on the 2018 Scout’s popular liquid-cooled V-twin standard model.
You can’t beat a classic! The 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster arrives from authentic, classic, Triumph heritage. It’s an old-school cruiser with new-school performance abilities – the best of both as I see it.
If you look at the G 310 R you can’t believe it’s a small CC bike. It appears large. And when you sit on it, you’ll feel proportionally suited. And though you might think this is for the smaller person, the sit position doesn’t feel cramped.
Allow me to change your perception of the new 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout Milwaukee-Eight® 114 cruiser. For you see, during my ride review, I escaped to the roads for nearly a week, taking this powerhouse Softail on a +2000 km trip (1250 miles) from Ontario to the province of Quebec and back again.
