 The Legend mates Harley-plush riding with Ducati handling. How? Part of it comes from the design of the 1.7-pound frame: a cylindrical top tube flows straight into flattened-out seatstays, which makes the bike flexible enough to absorb both the buzz of chip seal and big hits on pocked pavement. And while the head tube is tall enough to take the bend out of your back and the weight off your hands (a very comfy combo), it’s so well balanced that the steering remains quick.

THE VERDICT: Speed and comfort are not mutually exclusive. 16.5 lbs
