A new 500cc water cooled HD V twin. Who would've ever thought we'd see that?
And Honda re-intorducing a VFR800F?
Dogs and cats, living together!
Hmmmm...not bad, but are those the ugliest fork gators in the world or does that thing have external fork springs?!
O man, what a ripoff of the Honda Shadow. Only a poser would buy that. (sarcasm)
But really that looks sweet. Interested to see a dyno of the 750 and how it compares to the Shadow.
my &$%^*$# browser can't load the article, but I did read something about these somewhere else - they are built in India for the Asian markets. IDK if they are coming stateside or not. I don't think I want to be an early adopter on this one...
I saw that too, but the article says they will be on sale in the U.S. in early 14. $6700 for the 500 and $7500 for the 750.
I wonder if they'll break the 25hp ceiling, you know they like to "tune for torque" at the expense of "ultimate" horsepower.
radiator is far worse looking than the gators.
It is massive but I almost like it. Surprised that they went with such a big one.
Hey, its Harley's new F650/800 lineup! Enjoy the brand damage that us BMW riders have been suffering with since 1997.
Lots of potential in these bikes for hot rodding, I'd say.
The 500 and 750 will surely yield some interesting projects some time soon.
Can't wait to ride one.
Probably. Considering that the 883 is around $10k and the 750 is coming in at 7500 it's probably going to be pretty weak. Which sucks, because a liquid cooled 750 could be pretty fun, but I imagine it'll be pretty neutered.
Nice lookin' Bolt ... seriously though, it's a cool lookin' motorcycle ... and according to a pal of mine whom I was talking to not 10 mins ago, who works for our local H.D. dealership, the new Street 500-750cc models are coming to the U.S. and Canada ...
The bikes for sale in the US will be built in KC.
Hey, it's not a "real Harley" after all.
Why? Sportsters smoked big twins in performance for many years.
Sportys weigh a Lot, just being lighter will work wonders.
Jerry, is that you? Or is that the toad?
I'm pretty shocked.
One, that Harley can keep a secret so well.
Two, that it's a clean-sheet engine design.
Three, that it's a pretty big change from the usual aircooled stuff (vrod not included).
Four, that they're going to make the thing in the U.S. Or at least assemble it here.
When was the last time there was a "smaller" motorcycle built in the US?? (Other than the Buell Blast).
Harley's new CEO seems to be keeping his word that they're going to move a lot faster into product design.
It makes a lot of sense from a business sense. They are going to open themselves up to a completely new market in the U.S. (younger and first time buyers.) The biggest moneymaker for them will be the asian markets, where I assume they don't sell many current model Harleys.
I'm sticking with a Shadow copy because that's a liquid cooled 750.
