Mr. Max practically invented this category back in 1985, so we’ll list him first. It doesn’t hurt that the 65-degree, four-valve-per-cylinder, 1,679cc V-4 at the heart of the beast still produces eye-opening amounts of perfectly controllable acceleration, egged on by liquid-cooling, fuel injection, and a ride-by-wire throttle. Other supporting bits include a slipper clutch, dual wave-style brake discs with six-piston calipers, and suspension adjustability front and rear. A cruiser in sportbike clothing, or the other way around? Either way, this bike is no joke.
