I for one say good riddance. I'm still p*ssed that they cut the Street 500 and 750s loose - they could have upgraded them at minimal expense but instead sank them.
Did you ever ride one of them?I for one say good riddance. I'm still p*ssed that they cut the Street 500 and 750s loose - they could have upgraded them at minimal expense but instead sank them.
I rode the 750 Street and wasn't overly impressed except compared to an 883 Sportster.Did you ever ride one of them?
The 750’s motor was surprisingly peppy… but everything else was useless.
The brakes were the absolute worst of any bike I have ever ridden, including those with drum brakes.
The quality of the welds and fit and finish were something that a 7 year old would do with a model car kit. Just terrible.
Made in China sub 500ccs if they ever show up (which I doubt).So Harley's entry level bikes are gonna be water cooled parallel twins in the near future? Like I guess everyone else is doing it, so fine, but doesn't that mean they're going to be directly competing with Japanese models then? Something they have more or less avoided for very good reason?
Sportster S has flown mostly under my radar. It starts at $18.5K CDN? Who is it for? That's definitely not entry level anything
Me too. I remember when HD released the XLX-61 in 82 or 83 (?) and I thought it was particularly good looking. The 883 was released in 1984 and was very similar and good looking. The original 4 speed, chain driven model was a simple, stripped-down, old-fashioned motorcycle, long before "retro" was a thing.I've done a bunch of HD demo rides at Ride4Sight over the years but never been tempted. That said I still have a soft spot for a 883.
How long after SWM files the paperwork to sell that in North America do you think it will be before HD files a lawsuit
Does it give the cost?
