    Not live but noticed they trademarked the name a year or so ago so have been waiting for it, and knowing what the OG sportglide is means you could put money on it having a little fairing and bags.

    I didn't pick the inverted front end, rake and forward controls though.

    Seems confused as fuck.

    I actually don't mind the look either !
    The wheels look crap, and the exhaust , but I think it's one of the better bikes in the new "softail" range.
    Why the hell wouldn't they fit a dual disc front ??

    You have a point there John R.

    Oh well, a new release is better than no new release, right?

    I actually like the look of that bike (except the wheels which look like they came off a 1980s Yamaha) but as Speedzter said, why on earth is there no second disk?

    It's a shame they came out with this assembly of parts bin items. This new model should have been something up there with great bikes like the FXDXT and FXRT & (although nobody bought it) the FLD instead it looks like a breakouts little sister with a cheap chinese ebay fairing and clam shell bags.

    I own a dyna and don't really care that they killed off the model but lots of guys (especially the young punk market in the US) do. The sport glide hype has been around for a year now and THIS was the mocos chance to reel all the dyna clowns (currently crying into their corn flakes) back in.

    I still think the monoshock + m8 frame has legs but the moco just seems to be taking blind stabs in the dark for some of these models.

    They've gone about it all the wrong way. We should be able to spec these bikes from the frame up from the factory.

    -Choose your frame/rake, engine size, wheels, fenders, tank size, rear end, front end etcetera.

    Give me the tank and fenders off the Slim, the wheels off the slim only dual disk with the suspension off the new fatbob and removable top loading bags (only hard like a tourer) like the Heritage has and slap a decent sized removable fairing on.... I'd part with my hard earned dollars now.
