The XV1900A is the base model but there was also a £2,000 more and very rare XV1900CFD (Stratoliner in the US) fully dressed version with huge headlight fairing and panniers.
Cruisers are obviously bigger in the US and they also got a custom version in 2008, much like the XVS1300 here in the UK. The 12-spoke 18" front wheel takes a 130/70 tyre and the rear 17" a 190/60.
Accessories include a unified braking system and a range of billet bling, including a brake pedal cover, pillion floorboards, rear axle cover, fender rack and shift pedals.
