    Was a Japanese domestic model, was absolutely huge over there. Kawasaki had a similar model as well, the tracker craze was mental.

    not too bad, but having to rev that high to get Torque not my style I like it at half that rev at least.
    Ducati 1200 monster has more. 
    if they sell good for India!!

    JamesJ, the pipes look to have heat covers, S&S would know how to insulate from heat.

    yeah i noticed that,i thought more from the radiant heat build up over time.  Not burn the leg hot but uncomfortable after a few hours?

    I think S&S made up that style pipe, as the Flat track style getting people excited again. but us Aussies don't call it Flat Track, we call it speedway. it's all marketing, same as the 120HP just probably measured on an engine Dyno at the Factory and from the crank and might be at a very narrow rev band up high. you would really need to go for a long test ride. give me a Panhead & kick start only!!

    Krash you of all people should know that a flat track bike is a totally different type/style of bike with totally different motors, frames , brakes , no brakes , suspension rules etc. All manufacturers of vehicles that give HP figures are "factory quoted" numbers anyway and most likely from the crank . Still happy to have 120hp at the crank, thats plenty of giddy up.

    looks better...at least you dont mistake it for a Ducati at first glance :) what improves the look as well is the deleted rear number plate / mudguard atrocity ...also i noticed the lack of headlight indicators mirrors front guard etc.... at least it would be lighter hahaha!!!
