Those who buy cruser bike first think of thunderbird etc and they want riding pleasure .The avenger and enticer can't be called old school cruiser as they have small height and are not a fun to ride as thunderbird also they can be called as city cruser as they are very comfortable .The fact is that their aren't many options for the market of bike whose demand is very less. The Yahama enticer is done away with.

Enticer and Avenger I would say are just good enough to clasify as "cruiser shaped comuter bikes" they don't have the oomph to cruise on highways for a longer time. probably thats the reason they don't sell much.

evilweasel, can you be more clear by saying dont want to spend money on a bike, common mate people are already spending on bikes in india, and its a choice of communiting, which kind of bike one prefers.50k to 65k's a normal thing today ppl spend buying a bike.

In the 'nip and tuck' of Indian urban traffic, it's always comfortable driving a compact car than a sedan, so also with bike's it feels a lot comfy driving a bike with a short WB than a long one, otherwise you end bruising the bumper's of car's you want to get ahead off. Probably end up getting bruised yourself if the driver of the car you bruised catches up with you.

crusier bikes are painfull to ride in city conditions as they are low in height and have long handles to turn thus making it boring to ride in cities.

But a big sized cruiser like thunderbird is superb to ride on highways,but the ultimate cruisers are harley davidsons

Well harleys are ugly and boring. There are many better makers like yamaha just one example who make great bikes and you cant tell the difference from a stupid harley. The the best cruiser is a yamaha V-max

ok so engine size is one thing but it is also the styling. The avenger is a true cruiser. Note small engine size but the styling and everything is a pure cruiser. RE is called cruiser but the styling is saying something different. If you have Aci 9th anniversary then look at the ad on page 10/11. First note the position of the rider...its not like a cruiser at all. Second look at what the ad is saying "which means more power (20hp)...and this is from a 500cc engine. Pulsar 220 has this much power. So avenger is the true cruiser in India

cruisers don't sell coz u can't corner the bloody things. with a wheelbase which goes from kutch to kathmandu and stupidly rakes forks and soggy suspension, they are nothing more than hopeless heaps which can only go straight. and in india u need a nimble bike. so they are stupid to ride in our traffic. and they are costing more and giving less mileage also. so why will they be selling? of course we don't like cruiser bikes
