That's linkage suspension
No mention of the PA in this article from the Milwaukee Buisness Journal site. Curious but not surprising.
is cool isn't it willie??
I bet it's the first time he's seen it he has that confused "what are we looking at" expression
He looks like that all the time. He thinks it's 1988.
Anybody post these yet ?
The top two are sportsters
Why would they go with chain drive? Harley knows a thing or two about belts, the Uly used a belt too.
So what do we think the bike is going to sell for? I'm thinking $17k-ish. Am I way off base?
The Ulysses was known to occasionally snap a belt when a rock or piece of gravel got caught between the pulley and belt. Belts continue to improve, but a chain is still tougher.
Belts, chains and shaft drives have their advantages and disadvantages so the factory chooses which fits the products usage and design goals best.
Added: No chain drive is as almost maintenance free as a belt drive, no belt drive is as efficient as a shaft drive, no shaft drive is as cheap or easy to maintain orrepair as a chain drive...it goes on and on.
I’ve never been attracted to HD bikes, but this prototype doesn’t offend me. Will it weigh more than the S10?
I heard people speculate yes and I heard people speculate no but I haven't seen or heard one spec come from the bikes maker yet.
Thats exactly where I expect Harley to fail on this bike- Value. Not build quality or capability or anything like that.
There is just no reality where they sell it for ~12-14k which is IMO where they'd need to price it to make the ADV crowd tempted to give them a chance.
Lots of people fed up with the company nowadays, more and more by the day switching to something else. I see a lot of GS's in harley rider groups nowadays even.
that bike is going to be at least 20k first year
...after a couple of seasons i can see it around 12-14k
(i see it going the way of the vfr1200x)
Is that 20k price tag official by H-D ? Curious minds want to know
it might be more...22-23k idk
(we'll know soon enough)
If you call next year soon.....
