Already? Seems we were just basking in the of a balmy Indian summer and a late riding season, and zing. the holidays are upon us. I’m by the loud thunk of our annual Guide in my inbox—it’s a hefty of a project that somehow to shove its way into every of a magazine guy’s day. all good though, because if else, it serves as a barometer of the health.

The 2013 edition of the Cruiser Buyer’s Guide quite break the 100-model mark, but it comes pretty and if you ask me, that’s a good reflection on the state of the motorcycle market.

Some recent data seen backs that up; stated in its First Quarter Earnings report that of new bikes worldwide for Q1 were up 20 percent compared to the same last year, and Victory numbers closer to a jump of 40 for their 2012 Quarter 1. stuff.

But while most are that the industry’s slide out last year, many manufacturers are playing it safe, lineups mostly with models and meting out just a few new debuts. Harley’s sole new is the CVO Softail Breakout; understandably, the Company seems to be more on its big 110th Anniversary in 2013.

Victory added several for 2013, the Judge and the Boardwalk, with the usual complement of Series bikes. Star is hay about its newest model, the V 1300 Deluxe, which to find a slot in the middleweight niche. Meanwhile, Moto announced a big California 1400 several months back, but we heard a peep from since.

Indian Motorcycle has gone through the motions for with the Vintage Limited a blinged-up Chief that’ll the slot while new Polaris-designed are being prepped for next

Other manufacturers have to make do, which in some means bringing back omitted models. Suzuki has just that with the base model that 2012 so the tarted-up C50T could appear (it isn’t in the for 2013). Suzuki has also back the middle-heavyweight M90 power missing for a couple of years

Newcomers to the Guide this include Russian sidecar Ural, which, like Enfield, is making remarkable into the U.S. market by on ages-old technology. We feature its Solo model here.

the Guide’s structure is the same-old with manufacturers listed and models following in order of Our listing contains companies design proprietary motors, and we whether there was a price or decrease to carryover models. also a big Specifications chart at the end data for each model, as as contact info for the manufacturers.

So kick back and settle in our annual guide to the cruiser It’s gonna be a good

DUCATI Diavel /Dark


If the Diavel is indeed a it wouldn’t be the first to be badged as by Bologna (the 650cc debuted in 1986). But the Diavel is far evolved, sporting ABS, Control, and a retuned version of the Testastretta mill that out a claimed 162 hp—all this rocking a 30.3 inch height, and weighing less a Sportster. The devilish machine in several packages: The Dark is the Cromo adds shiny and the Carbon brings textured weave componentry.

**Harley-Davidson CVO Ultra Classic Glide


** For all you dedicated—and fans, the CVO Ultra Classic Glide represents the finest of the Electra Glide ethos. one ticks all the boxes, starting a Twin Cam 110 Screamin’ Eagle in a Touring platform, plus storage space. Then add the a zumo 660 GPS, dual-control seat, Harmon/Kardon Advanced System with BOOM speakers plus Sirius/XM and 8-gig iPod nano, and lots more.

For 2013 there are four paint schemes, including a Anniversary edition in Diamond/Dust/Obsidian Palladium graphics.
