Looks promising. Depends a lot on engine and weight to know if it's a real competitor. Especially since it will probably be in the s1000r and 1290 duke price ranges.

Nice job on the looks. At least they're trying to make something that's more current and doesn't handle and ride like a 1954 Cadillac.

I am a Harley fan, mainly sportsters as they are small and nimble, the big dressers are too big to me. I actually cant wait to start seeing them. I like the panamerica bike I saw in the video, one where the front end looks like chappie (the movie robot) my custom sporty I built.

Well if it is anything like all the other Harleys it will be this: Overpriced, Overweight and Underpowered.

The new bikes look cool, but performance is key in this category. They have well established competition. If HD doesn't really knock it out of the park, it's going to flop.
