    It's official.  I've started a new section for these new models.  Probably won't hit Australia till 2015 from what I've read but I'm sure we'll hear more.

    Was looking at some of the customised bikes developed by the designers at Harley, I must say I'm a fan already.  Pictures below pinched from Cycle World:

    The RDX800 concept (top photo) could be a credible production sports version. Dunno if the rumoured 54hp would excite me but I'm sure there'd be more power lurking in there somewhere. I'd buy one.

    Slap.

    Horsepower is not huge but with a wet weight of around 480lbs (218kg), power to weight is much better than an 883 Sportster.  And if you could beef the hp up to around 65 that would make things interesting.

    That white Cafe Racer looks good with half decent shocks on it. I hope they sell well!

    I Can't understand why they did"nt look at this line many years past, as market to Asia, with smaller capacity even, and you have the masses buying..

    Me , personnally no, but, to make dollars market is a yes for the company, I do hope they go this path, for the all of us crew who want bigger jazz.

    Put my deposit down on a Street 500 this week, now for the long wait till it arrives.

    Hope Harley ends up bringing some in a few months early.

    Great move from HD, i love the look of these things. They will be very appealing to the younger guys! Wonder what engine upgrades kits will be available? maybe a turbo kit??

    I'm definitely keeping an eye on these!

    G'day,

    Anyone out there old enough to remember when 500's were the bike to have and 750's were the superbikes ?

    Have the prices been sorted out yet?

    Yes I can, the Honda 750 was king but then came along the Kwaka 900, would still love one of those

     Yep I remember those days, and these days I still have 350cc, 500cc, 750cc motorcycles. Not much into the new bikes these days, but I do appreciate all makes of Motorcycles because without the early bikes we wouldnt have modern motorcycles.

    How cute,a miniature Big boys bike.
    I'd just save a few thousand by re-badging a Hyosung
    With HD badging.

    One of HD's main issues is it's aging owner demographic, HD need to attract younger buyers and these models might be the way to do it. Would I buy one? Not for me, but I can see the missus on the cafe racer one.

    Oh and bonus for the sporty riders... it'll give the 'skirtster' peanut gallery another target LOL

    I believe that HD will run the risk of becoming mainstream, and loosing some of its appeal....

    they do one thing well, which is the big bikes.....stick to it......
