Machine of the Year (Cruiser)

In the judges opinion, despite only just being released, the winner, and still the real thing…is the Harley V-Rod

Other manufacturers have spent years trying to copy the look and feel of a Harley and just when they start to get close Harley picks up the goal posts and moves them somewhere else.

If you were a little sceptical about the V-Rod’s looks then take our advice. Don’t just judge it on looks – try and get a ride on one. It’s a great motorcycle.

1. Harley-Davidson V-Rod

2. Honda VTX1800

3. Yamaha XVS1100A Drag Star

Shortlisted: Suzuki VL800 Volusia
