Muscle And Performance – The Top 15 Fastest Cruiser Motorcycles!
What is the fastest cruiser out there? We take a look at 0 – 60 times!
Since determining an accurate 0 – 60 mph speed is pretty hard, working out what bike wins the “fastest cruiser” title is a tricky business, but we’ve done our best for you right here. There’s no way that we’ve had the chance to ride every single one of these down the strip, so we’re borrowing a few facts and figures recorded from other sources and tried to work out reasonable averages to give as accurate a presentation as possible – because let’s be honest, there’s a lot of misinformation out there.
The reason for such varied acceleration figures is because it’s not an easy thing to work out. There are just too many factors at play for reviewers (and even the manufacturers) to give you a true representation of a motorcycle’s actual acceleration capabilities. Different test riders have different abilities, different bikes could have different fuel amounts, track temperatures will vary, surfaces will be different…you get the idea. Oh yeah, and of course most test riders are professional riders too, so while they might be able to flog the same motorcycle you own to fasters speeds, don’t be disappointed that you can’t do the same.
The “Fastest Cruiser” Criteria:
Working out average acceleration times is difficult enough – but trying to define what constitutes as a cruiser and what doesn’t is another matter entirely. Some riders have very strict rules about how they define a cruiser. Some motorcyclists have been known to insist that a cruiser is only a cruiser if it has a v-twin, while others claim that it has to be comfortable enough to tour long distances on. We’re not going to pigeon-hole things in this list. If it fits in the broader cruiser spectrum, it’s welcome here. All we’re looking for is a slightly more relaxed riding position, fast acceleration, and shed loads of character. The only thing we’re not going to include is electric motorcycles – because it wouldn’t be a fair test now, would it? So, without further ado, let’s take a look at 15 of the fastest cruiser motorcycles out there!
