Vulcan Wins

Motorcycle-USA.com just released a test called "2010 Middleweight Cruiser Shootout" and the Vulcan got the highest overall marks. Pretty impressive as there was some pretty steep competition being the HD Sportster 883, Honda Shadow 750 Phantom, and the Yamaha Star 950. It's well done and very interesting. And man that blacked out Vulcan looks sweet, I really want to blacken mine up like that. Anyway you guys should check it out, good stuff.

Good read, though I don't know why they'd have preferred an Iron 883 over the 883L.

I believe they're the same bike chassis/engine-wise, with the only differences being the Iron specific items added (plus the higher price).

I have that exact Vulcan and I love it. The power and ride is awesome. The only problem with the bike is that I can not be on it 24/7.

Yeah, they got it right! I did a lot of comparison before buying my "07". All things considered, the Vulcan is just simply a better value. Just my opinion, oh and Motorcycle-USA.com.
