Could there be more models coming? This will be the roadster version? I would like to see a full fender version with a low mounted 2 into 1 pipe.

i would like to see a sportster and not an indian scout. imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but this is a little over the top.

I'd buy a Yamaha Bolt before I'd buy this.

That engine is my biggest dislike as I sort of like that bulky look. Passanger seat needed though..

I wished they would have made it 45 degree vtwin with pushrod actuated valves; pushrod tubes are pure sex... be it watercooled and 4 valves per cylinder that doesn't bother me.

Not going to win any enduro race with this one's 3.66 inches ground clearance though.
Mid controls for $650 are bummer, should come standard and forwards as an optional downgrade of "sports bike".
I like it, but I like V-Rod too.

The Pan American would do a lot better off road. I'm waiting. So far, we have a Pan Am, and an S, there will be other variants coming. I like the idea of a Bronx and I think something along those lines will be coming.

Between all the people who hate the new S and all the people who like it, has anybody actually ridden a new S? I have yet to see a "First Ride" kind of article; other than the Official MoFoCo propaganda.

I'd buy the engine and stuff it into a nightster. I'm really considering doing this if my boss let me lol. This should be a fun project to try and sell the wife.

Id imagine this is like a cross between panam and a 48. Looks just as uncomfortable as a 48 but at 120hp and 90lbs lighter i bet it rips just fine. For the price Id go panam or for nostalgia look just go softail lrs.
