Cruiser bikes are one of the most popular categories of two-wheelers that are popular in Nepal. These bikes with wide handlebars and comfortable seating positions allow the rider to lean back to savour the moment with single-speed drivetrains, which require less maintenance and make them easy to ride a long distance enjoying the blissful environment.
Cruiser bikes are known for their design among other features. The classic round headlights, a wide body or a muscular tank, a lean body and beefy tyres provide proper needed stability for a smooth ride.
