The Vision Tour shares a very important trait with the Cross Country - its handling belies its size. For a bike that tips the scales with a dry weight of 395kg, the motorcycle tracks where you point it and holds its line well when tipped over.
It's also decked out to make the long haul as easy on the rider as possible. The seat is ultra comfy and has ergonomics that keep pressure off the lower back. The ample-sized floorboards allow riders to easily shift their body weight or to stretch their legs on long runs. There are plenty of creature comforts like a push-button adjustable windshield, dual-zone heated seats and handgrips and cruise control as standard features. Throw in factory ABS and a linked braking system and you've got an American-made luxo-tourer with features comparable to its Japanese counterparts. Touring riders will also appreciate the 110 litres of trunk and saddlebag storage.
