maybe the Diavel, while not everyones cup of tea, might raise the bar
I have said it before in an other post
The Diavel is not simply a cruiser, it can only be classified in with the bikes the japaneese introduced in the 80,s wich would be considered "power cruisers".
The yamaha V-max,Kawasaki Eliminator Honda sabre/magna to name a few. All built to have an overabundance of get up and go but yet be able to be civil and cruise a bit. All of these bikes fit right into line with the new diavel but the duc just dosnt fit into the cruiser segment compleetely no matter what its intended market or what some people at a mag say it is.
I also firmly belive the v-rod is also in the power cruiser sement and shouldnt be counted as a cruiser.
