How about the combat version?

I like this one. Cool styling (tho not a fan of the seat). 172.2 mph on the salt flats and claimed 200mph on asphalt...not that I'd ever have the guts to ride it that fast, oh well

What a shame it took Yamaha to make a real sportster again.



And what a shame I just bought a bike...

Sorry; Clip-ons, rearsets, 100+ extra pounds, cheap suspension and 10+ less HP? No thanks! even at half the price.

I'm out of the loop. Why is this so much better than the HD Iron 883 (@ the same price)?

vs a 15k norton clone? you're paying for a cheap copy either way, the triumph is just cheaper. At least the trumpet has halfway decent dealer support and a growing aftermarket and pretty much the same performance. The "norton" has... a name?

It was just announced but the specs say it's got more power, less weight, more ground and cornering clearance, and better suspension bits from the factory. For the same price.
