Even though he is 25 years now, I can safely take him out anywhere and any distance (Yes, done rallies and long trips on him). He can even go on on kerosene! Mileage is bad, though, but I do not complain, given the riding pleasure and balance of him. :)
While the GT650R seems like a decent bike (barring the 'close resemblance' to a similar mid level Ducati), the ST7 seems completely useless as a cruiser. The true hallmarks of a true cruiser are: a. Maximum power at low revs; and b. Low end torque.
With figures like 58 bhp @ 8000 RPM and 57NM of torque at 6000 RPM, it is basically a street bike dressed as a cruiser. It looks good, so buy it if you want a looker, but in case you make the mistake of taking it to the hills, be ready to be shamed by a 350 cc bullet up an incline.
