I used to own a cruiser, a '99 . I changed to the RT for the wind protection and carrying capacity. I really loved my cruiser and felt it had enough get up and go to keep me happy. Does the RT have more power--definately, but the cruiser is a blast.

The cruiser uses a different throttle body system than the other R bikes so you don't see the throttle bodies sticking out there. It has a single unit, dual body TB in the air box. And because of that significantly longer intake runners. As a result the power is down significantly from the RT. About 12 HP if I remember right.


It also lacks the rear paralever of the RT, it has a sold swing arm - final drive.


But then, it is intended to be a cruiser not a sport-tourer.
