So, until tire companies play catch up, probably one overpriced tire available.

Hey, whatever floats your bike, lol.

It will be interesting to hear people's ownership experience as these bikes age.
I'm curious if these will last 100,000 miles like the previous Sportster or if these will be pricey throw away bikes.

If they have aftermarket support lined up for it they should be fine. If they go strictly P&A catalog they are dead.

I dont see why it wouldn't last equally as long, all else said. liquid cooled will mean it won't be overheated as much. not harder, just different maintenance.
