Harley-Davidson Cruisers

Harley-Davidson has always known how to capture the soul of the American cruiser. Since the company was established in the early 1900s, lots of exciting motorcycles have been built, and the brand still keeps grabbing attention of millions of bikes by introducing new models.

History of Harley-Davidson Cruiser

William Harley along with brothers Davidson founded a motor company in 1903 to build traditional cruisers with air-cooled V-Twin engines. Along with them, these motorcycles were also produced by Excelsior, Indian, and Henderson. The typical riding position for such motorcycles is the feet first and the hands up. These are machines built in the style of American motorbikes during 1930s-1960s.

Their first Harley-Davidson bike was very similar to other small motorcycles riding throughout the country. During the next decade, the company continued to expand. Cruisers made by Harley-Davidson were mainly heavyweight machines with engine displacements of over 700 cm³. The latest models by Harley-Davidson belong to the 2018 Softail Lineup.
