a buddy of mine had an 07 C90 for a time. I got to ride it and was quite impressed with it. It did have a processor and loud exhaust. The exhaust I didn't like but that thing had real get up and go exciting to ride. It pulled well in any gear or speed without chugging. I seriously considered buying it. The exhaust and smaller tank were the biggest issues I had. Could have bought a different exhaust and a Gman tank. I test rode the newer C90 at Thunder in the Valley Johnstown PA. I was not impressed with the bike. Fuelling was way to lean and it chugged a lot more than I cared for.
If I was going to consider going back to a Cruiser, an older C90 with it's hydraulic valves Air/oil cooled, could be a good bargain. I would install a processor if it didn't have one. Maybe the new C90 would be better with a processor as well. I believe the new C90 requires valve servicing much like the C50.
