Oh it's long no doubt, 65.9" wheel base. Shorter than the 67.5" vrod or 70.9" raider though lol.
It has a pretty steep rake angle, good ground clearance and it's light for an almost 1700cc cruiser though. Which makes it handle much quicker and better than you might think. Definitely no top speed demon but the torque on this thing is a blast to play with.

Very nice! Buddy of mine recently went from sportbikes to a Warrior and absolutely loves it! Says he wishes he had done it years ago.

Nice bike. I had one, 2008. Liked it. But in my opinion the only thing the M109R has on the Warrior is that kick ass engine. The 109 was clunky shifting, 100 lbs heavier, handled slower, and dragged pegs earlier.
As a total package I like the Warrior more.

you should have went with the suzuki m109r

Thanks. I still love sportbikes, but the Warrior is a decent power cruiser compromise if you can live without the sportbike top end speed. It handles great for what it is and doesn't drag hard parts as early as most cruisers.

That said I think my next bike is going to be something along the lines of a KTM 690 Duke or Husqvarna 900 Nuda. I like to change it up.

That's a nice cruiser. Remember, it's one of the only ones with an aluminum frame. It's got great brakes and decent suspension, too. Nice bike! :cheers
