They're not pretty, but I would love to see what 163 ft. lbs of torque feels like. That's wild.

Dig it. Cruisers don't work for me, but if you're going to do it, this is it.

I had a bit of a laugh when I first saw the pics and just think why?
Who needs a big heavy crap box like this I would rather a 200hp 120kg machine.
Rocket would be the appropriate name

Is this a situation where you guys weren't aware of the Rocket? I have a friend who is on Rocket number 2, and they're a blast to ride, and fast as ****.

Personally, I've never seen one. Certainly different, although I don't dislike it...

To be honest, I like the way it looks, and I'm impressed that they have reduced the weight, and maybe it's a good "Sunday go to the park" bike, but really? Does anyone who can afford one bike and rides it regularly want that behemoth as their regular bike? Kudos to those who do. You are real men, who don't need Harley's. For a while I wanted a Honda Valk (not the Rune) after having ridden my Magna for a number of years, but, as fortune would have it, I never bought one (came very close though). Glad I slipped into the GSX-S side of things.

Wet weight (lbs): Valk=721, Rocket=797, GSX-S100F=471

I liked it better the first time when it was called a Ducati Diavel.
