    Definitely interesting but pretty sure it won't be on my list. We'll see what the market says when it's actually released to the public.

    Not pretty when looking at the front.
    Only a mother could love that face, but I bet she would cringe a little.

    This will be really interesting. That bike will not be much of an attraction to the HD faithful in my opinion. In a way, similar to the popularity of the V Rod. It will be a conquest sale bike seeking buyers from other brands. Some disillusioned BMW riders might be interested. Some on this forum will probably admit it. The nearby dealerships will be a plus.

    When the bike was first mentioned long ago I was completely uninterested, viewing it as a styling exercise and a way to jam the Sportster powerplant into a different platform (Buell, anyone?). As more information, and more accurate information, has come out my interest is increasing. Availability of dealerships would be a plus, hydraulic lifters will reduce maintenance needs, and the automatic suspension lowering (ala Citroen)is a smart move that’s overdue in the industry. HP and torque look to be more than adequate and the weight is in line with the competition.

    I’ll be test riding one when they come available at the dealers, not as an immediate buyer but certainly to get a read on how it stacks up against my GS. One of my GS riding buddies has a water head GS and an HD full dresser—I expect him to be very seriously looking at the bike.

    Let's see: I can walk to the nearest Harley dealership. The nearest BMW dealer used to be 75 miles but is now 140+ miles...

    I think this is great news for the entire community, on so many levels. Hopefully they have enough success to avoid another "Buell" down the road. More ADV-riders just helps in the political arena, inflating the ranks with interest to maintain trails and expand, with luck, further resources.

    Wishing HD all the success they need to keep it going.

    I see Harley stock is up quite a bit lately. I think the market sees something good in this new bike, and especially the new engine, and Harley's effort at producing modern bikes for a change.
