Intrigued that Harley have announced a whole range of new bikes for the future, including this....

Does this finally mean that Harley's stylists have moved out of the 1950s into the 1970s??? It actually looks like good, apart from seriously ugly headlight.

They're also making a 'street fighter' that looks VERY similar to the Buell

Ive no doubt HD kept the blue print rights when they dropped the axe on Buell but they had some sexy models in the line up.

No but with the noise from the engine you don't hear the bits drop off. 8-)

"No but with the noise from the engine you don't hear the bits drop off. 8-) " Quote Scootypuff snr. :lol: Like it!

I rather like the look of the new Harleys and hope they're successful despite the new tariffs etc. I must admit my only experience of them is my friends which he's been commuting on for over a year now as well as riding to meets etc and he's had no real problems (an 883 Sportster) I like the idea of low tech bikes which can be easily owner serviced etc. I've got the equivalent to a 30 year old Sportster with my 1100 Shadow but it doesn't sound as good as a Harley (with all its bits)

I like & loath my 883 in equal measure but it is purely a weekend toy.

The latest Harleys appear to have some build quality issues but then folk only post to moan rather than compliment.
