    This looks like something I might actually want to test ride.

    Hey, I always wanted to start a model-specific thread. :)

    The Harley Bronx was introduced today at EICMA.

    Anxious to see how the bike actually performs.
    The name, however, sucks. :nah
    Seems they trademarked the name 'bareknuckle' not too long ago. That would have been a very 'Harley' name for a streetfighter. The name 'Bronx' just makes me think of an overpopulated, crime-ridden slum. Not exactly a flattering image...

    They're all a-twitter about it over on the Indian forum, claiming that Harley is copying the FTR.

    It's not, a lot of them just cannot accept it that the Bronx is styled in the general 'streetfighter' configuration, and not an FTR 'copy'. They don't look very much alike to me, and other than using a V-twin, are just as much a 'copy' of every other naked sportbike being offered from every major European and Japanese manufacturer.

    By the way, I like the looks of the Bronx.

    Looks good, be nice if it carries a decent amount of petrol. Along with tiny gas tanks (and this isn't just a Harley knock), I am amazed at how many bikes are lacking decent fenders and/or at least fitting a quality protective grill(s) for these radiators/coolers that are just waiting to be damaged at great expense. Anyway, looks to be a great buyers market in 2020.

    Funny you should mention it.
    I was just sitting here wondering why they would name a bike after
    a place that no one in their right mind would ever want to visit.
    :rofl:rofl
    Hey! Maybe they can name their next new one the "Camden New Jersey" or the "Downtown Detroit".
