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:
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.
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.
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?
Bit of a write up and pics in Jan issue of Heavy Duty
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.
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
what were these like in the flesh walka ?
Just done the same " border="0" src="/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/_default/emoticons/smile.gif" />
Now dished the street for upgrade ipn licence and just bought the Iron 883.
Mods please block this prick.
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......
