I pulled this off that video. It's the white bike in the background at Milan I think.

I like this.

Now let's see if this doesn't lead into the revival of the VR-1000. I know, I know, I dream big.

The more I see the more I like... I need to talk the spouse unit into buying one. At 5'2" and 115# she's a perfect fit.

And you are great at acting like you know shit by quoting a post that was put up before the actual specs were posted

That's me and it's nice to see a new HD model that does it for me visually.

Am I the only one that sees a similarity to Honda's old VT500 in the engine and exhaust headers?

Tanshanomi screwed with this post 11-05-2013 at 03:11 PM Reason: Original photo hotblocked. Replaced it with another similar one.

HD will sell a ton of these.. along with the accessories and of course the clothing.

Lots of HD owners have wives that ride smaller and lighter Japanese cruisers. This will get them riding, drinking and wearing the same koolaide as their husband.

Indeed, my wife would rather see you working the Dollar Days in a Canadian whorehouse than riding a Japanese bike...

From Cycle World:

Separate aluminum cylinders are fitted with pressed-in iron liners, and the only difference between the 500 and 750 versions, which share a 66.0mm stroke, is the bore. The 500s is 69.0mm, which makes for an actual displacement of 494cc. The 750s bore, at 85.0mm, makes for a displacement of 749cc. Redline for both engines is 8,000 rpm, and peak power for the 750, though not officially announced, was said by one Harley rep to be 54 hp at 7,500 rpm, with 44 pound-feet of peak torque arriving at an unspecified rpm.

Any word yet on mpg? I would expect better than the 883 at 55-60 mpg highway.
