Which Cruiser/Muscle Bike to get in 2019?

Hi Guys,

I am looking for a bit of inspiration

I have been riding Ducatis for most of the time I have had a license. First the 1199 and then 1199R. I have now decided I want to add a cruiser of some sort when going on a "nice and easy Sunday ride". Have always been a fan of design like Confederate Motorcycles, but they are quite a bit out of my price range (weird to day as a Ducati rider ). I looked into (and tried out) the Diavel and XDiavel, but I found them a bit too refined and not a fan of the looks. I also looked at the KTM 1290, but too much plastic for my taste. Not a HD fan either. What are you guys riding in terms of cruisers/muscle bikes? I could really need some inspiration here as I am not really turned on by anything I can find in the market for the moment...

I Ride: 2013 Panigale White, 2017 MV Agusta Dragster RC #108
Dragster RC here. Much more comfortable for longer rides while still being sporty enough to not be boring. Plus, it's another Italian eye candy.
Thanks from Seismic and Sherpa23

Victory has some nice cruisers. I’d go look at them.

I bought this new in 2003. Lots of character and performance. Nothing else feels like it while riding. Test drive one and tell us what you think...

Victory will let you test ride too. They want you to try them out.

I always thought that Moto Guzzi had some nice looking bikes. The air cooled engines with the laid back cruiser look might be kind of what you're looking for, but a little different from everything else.

Have a look at the new triumph rocket coming.

How does a 2.5 litre 3cylinder engine sound?

Enough torque to pull a sailor off your sister.

Hey All,

Thank you very much for your input. A lot of different suggestions that work very well as inspiration. Will have a look at them all.

For everyone else.....keep the suggestions flowing...

I Ride: V4 S Corse '19
I love my BMW K1300R
lots of torque, fun to play with
they don't make them any more, so it would be second hand

if you want a new one: ZZR1400? CB1100? Gold Wing? Moto Guzzi MGX-21!!!

Cafe'd Monsters are some of the nicest city bikes around.




Though, for around town stuff, I prefer a Drz400s.
