    Harley 2021-2025 Marketing Statement

    Here's a link to a statement of the H-D philosophy for the future, including a video of the current CEO:

    Despite my misgivings about the way this thing looks from the instruments forward, I fervently hope for it's success. Who knows, in a couple of years we could see a standard-type bike like the R1250R rolling out of Milwaukee. And then a sport tourer. And then a sport bike. And then a full scale change of the type of rider typically associated with Harleys, present company excluded.

    Looking at the specs I was surprised to see the R1250 has more torque.
    The Adaptive Ride Height that lowers the bike at a stop is a neat option.

    I'd like to rent one for a few days.

    I wonder how they will be received at Sturgis?

    A whole new section at the Buffalo Chip?
    The only dumb question is the unasked question!

    Neat but pricey. I think I read in the CycleWorld piece that it's a $1,000 option...

    I wonder if Harley might accidentally have some in Daytona for test rides at bike week. If so i might just be tempted to take one for a spin.

    I think my aux. lights on my GSA were $1,000. Panniers $1,500 Nav $900. Seems reasonable for that convenience to me.

    If it ain't broke, fix it 'till it is.

    I am getting to the age where I would not quibble about the price on that option.

    If you have short legs I bet the price will not bother most buyers.
    Both of us paid $1,000 for the ABS option on our 1991 K75S bikes.

    Just got back from the local Harley dealer, they said they will call me when they get one in the shop around June. They just ordered one for someone.

    Serious threat to GS

    If the Pan America 1250 is as good as the spec sheet suggests, I think the GS/GSA is facing it's biggest threat ever here in the US. It's also competitively priced and has huge dealer network here. Heck, it might be a decent threat overseas. I hope it is. Competition is always good.

    Lowering the seat like a kneeling metro bus sounds like a gateway drug to one of those trike-thingys.
