Cruisers come in a wide array of styles and displacements and are designed with a laid-back riding position. The majority of contemporary cruisers are modeled after classic American bikes like Harley-Davidsons and Indians. A V-Twin motor is the typical power plant, most often air-cooled, although that’s not always the case. A Cruiser rider generally is set into a position with feet forward and hands in a neutral or high position. This makes cruisers a popular choice for casual riding. And depending on the model and its options, they can also be suitable for distance riding, spawning a sub-class of Touring Cruisers. Chopper-style motorcycles are considered cruisers. Many cruising motorcycles have limited performance and turning ability due to a low-slung design. Riders who enjoy cornering at higher speeds may need to customize to enhance lean angle, or start with a performance or sport-cruiser. Cruisers are often custom projects that result in a bike modified to suit the owner's ideals, and as such are a source of pride and accomplishment. Cruisers are sometimes called custom even in the absence of aftermarket modifications.

The "C" model offers a sporty, modern design. The redesigned flangeless fuel tank, cast aluminum wheels and low dragster-style seat look great, as does the graphics and big headlamp. A big list of customizing options is also available, so you can really personalize the bike before you buy it with Honda's custom-building program.
