Cape cod basser Crazy stuff how they had a great cruiser line up and pull them all to go with that hulk gold wing look alike. I test rode the 2020 Indians recently and I will have to say I was very impressed with everything but the price. Handling was great. Felt light even though you know they are not.
Let me finish this by saying I used to work at my buddies Yamaha shop occasionally before he retired so I saw and rode a bunch of different models as they came through the doors.

Will our bikes become collectibles?

I assume mamma Yama knows what they are doing in leaving the cruiser market. I don't have a clue what the reason would be. The Bolt was pretty popular and they sold a ton of 650's and 1300's. But who knows, maybe they are pulling the cruisers for a couple/few years to rethink and totally redesign the Raider, Stryker and Bolt (doubtful).

BillyD66 Last demo day I attended(previous Father's Day), I test rode the MT-09. It was a blast and it appears this style of bike is getting really popular. There is a MC Garage video on comparing these bikes to crotch rockets and the crotch rockets didn't do all that well.

I'll miss having Yamaha cruisers to choose from when the time comes to replace but Yamaha, HD and the rest can only build what sells. Yamaha, Honda and the like are more flexible than say Indian or HD because they already produce other styles of bikes than just cruisers.

Time will tell. Things are cyclic...

can't get any lower than it's already been for years

The Japanese cruisers enjoy almost zero aftermarket support as is...i'm sure what little is there will slowly dwindle off.
