for entry level i was expecting like 3000, 4000 dollars or less not 8000, 9000 dollars. lol

Kevin Baxter says:

it is after all a Harley who gives a fck if it sucks it sucks the sounds is a bisasht to me

Michael Tyson says:

these are expensive as fuck in my country, I was looking for like bajaj avenger 220 or something

LS650 says:

When I started riding 25 years ago, a 250cc was entry-level. These days I have a V-star 650, and it’s plenty enough bike for most riders. How are 900cc bikes entry-level, even if a cruiser??

Andrew Kiss says:

Pocketbook? What is a pocket book?

NoName says:

The Harley sounded like the shittiest one, yet all the other bikes are boring because they are not like the Harley. Harley has really become the Apple Computers of the motorcycle world.

zac says:

The problem with most metrics is longevity. Look at a 20 year old Harley Sportster, usually looks the day it was new. Look at a metric cruiser from 20 years ago, all the plasti-chrome has peeled, the thin paint fades and the mirrors/bars gets lots of pitting from rust.

I tried sanding the paint off a Harley fuel tank and it took 5 minutes with a power sander to make it through the clear coat, theres a reason they cost more.

no suzuki? 🙁

SilentPrayingmanTis says:

I remember watching this over and over before i got my first bike, if your strugling on getting just do it. Nothing compairs to it.

MotorheadRedo says:

If the Vulcan 900 is entry level, than what is the Vulcan S or V-star 250? These bikes are not entry level motorcycles. They are mid size cruisers. It wasn’t very long ago that 900cc was considered a big motorcycle, but now its called entry level. I think these categories have more to do with marketing than reality. Just like more adventures can be had on a dual sport than the so called adventure motorcycles. I’ve seen Kawasaki switch from calling the KLR 650 a dual sport motorcycle to an adventure motorcycle depending on the context and audience. Its all about marketing.

O G says:

Kawasaki hands down, I own a 2009 I tweeked two a 1100s hp I’ve smoked every stock HD that’s made fun of it, you can not give me a junkie HD it’s a over priced pos , bought mine new and never been in the shop, 42000 and still strong, my friends who own HD stay in the shop ,I’ve even pulled HD with my bike .If I wanted something to work on more than riding ide buy me a go-cart cheaper and still get that it’s going to break down feeling cheaper

Robert Samson says:

I cant live up to the ‘Harley’ name. I dont see myself as HAVING to wear a Harley shirt or vest everytime i ride. OR, using hand signals when i have turn signals. The entire Harley thing is so overrated. Harleys are for all the overweight fat fucks that cant ride other bikes. I get the tradition. Look at ANY Harley rider….Most are over weight fat asses that dont fit on anything else. All the while…maintaining their ‘Im a big hardass persona’, what a joke!!!!! I’d give the Yamaha the nod on this comparison. LMAO!!!!!!!**

Madcatdave says:

I haven’t ridden the other bike’s but I own a vulcan 900 classic. I have been on many trips with my vulcan. It handles fantastic and the seat doesn’t hurt your butt after a day of riding. It is a very comfortable bike and feels almost weight less to me. If you are thinking of picking up a vulcan I would definitely recommend it. This bike will serve you well for a long time.

Scott9084 says:

I clicked on this video hoping that my outdated Suzuki C50 would be compared here. It was recently featured in a 6 way comparison in a magazine. It came in 2nd to last with 42 horsepower at the rear wheel. I would just like to add that mine is a 2005 with 51,000 miles and the only problem it ever had was a blown fuse 5 years ago. They have been almost unchanged for ten years and they still fit with that cruiser look. Just thought I would mention.

*cool bikes man*

JustStop Don't says:

I love my Honda Shadow phantom. It’s my first bike and I’ve only owned it for 3 weeks now. I’ve put a little over 300 miles on it so far. My only complaint would be I wish it was a 900cc bike for a little more power. I’m 6ft, 170lbs to give an idea.

mark perez says:

I’m 17 and looking to get a new bike. Would a iron 883 be a good starter bike ?

dennisndodie says:

My entry level bike was a briggs stratton 5 hp.Then a Honda 50 then a Honda trail 70 back in the early seventies.

Theleb Funy says:

the narrator needs some serious sleep, for god sake bring someone who can speak instead of reading from a paper

john harris says:

Abysmal horsepower figures, but that’s vtwins I guess.

hillclimber440 says:

get a haircut and open your eyes.

A C. says:

Great review. I finally get to c all the cruisers in comparison. Which one is ur fav? Can u do a new review for 2016?

J Dizzle says:

my first bike was a Honda Shadow vlx 600 I was already used to the power after one week of riding after that I got an 03 Sportster 883 I put on a little bit taller handlebars and love that bike.

MotorPsycho says:

I have a heritage now but gotta love sportsters

ameer alhelo says:

Can anyone speak cleaner than this guy?

Mitch Shark says:

I started out with a 1740cc cruiser and I could not imagine having anything smaller. The bike gave me room to grow…and I grew in a couple days. I feel that if I had a smaller bike I would have regretted it within a very short time.

Zachary Stewart says:

if anyone knows much about the Vulcan 900’s would they really be good for a first time rider? the Vulcan S is a good choice but is far more expensive than id like to be spending on an entry level bike, i have the chance to get a GREAT vulcan 900 for $2,000… please let me know

adam clark says:

Is a pocket book the name for a cheque book across the pond?

Kathryn Brown says:

where is the Yamaha bolt? ?

Jay Flynn says:

Of all the vids on youtube i can’t find any on motorcycles ground clearance 🙁 You should do it! A best to worst ground clearance video per bike group would be nice 🙂 Im a fan of chunky cruisers but know nothing about this issue. See so many vids where riders on cruiser barely lean at all and ground clearance seems could be a huge if not number 1 issue on which bike to get.

obieezx11 says:

Kawasaki VN900 for the win

DiabeticManatee says:

He looks like snoop dogg

Jon Neet says:

hat, no Suzuki? The C50 or the M50 should have been in this test.
