If its the time tested unbeatable low rpm / high torque 'potato-potato' then yea it'll sell..some. But it'll never be another and there will always be only one SPORTSTER. Chromed out, heavy as helll (despite the XL tag?) sexy sport cruiser. Although the XR 1000 did damn good...20 freakin' yrs ago.

It'd be nice if new management could bring Erik Buell back into the fold. Maybe they could look at it like they're stronger together than apart. Watercooled engines aren't ruled out because of brand identity anymore. The Hammerhead 1190 and the 1190 SX make 185hp.
