It’s a fine bike, but it’s too expensive and doesn’t vibrate the way it should

I wouldn’t buy one but I would take the motor. The S styling just doesn’t really tickle my pickle. Now if they made a model with a roadster hot rod styling or a new XLCR with a modern flair.

I love my real Sportster S.... if I had to replace it would likely be an Indian FTR1200 tracker...
