Interesting bike. I'd like to ride one. Not sure if it should be called a Sportster or not.

Interesting bike, and long overdue but I'm not convinced by the specification.

I don't understand the market positioning. It doesn't LOOK like a Sportster, it isn't the cheapest Harley by a considerable margin like a Sportster but it DOES have the single front disc and limited suspension travel of the late Sportsters.

Harley don't appear to intend to race it, which leaves it trailing (in British and European eyes) behind the Indian Scout and especially the FTR1200. The Kawasaki Z900RS is a cracker of a bike for a lot less money. Ducati have a small, but strong following, then there's the Yamaha MT10.

I'll be interested to see if it sells.

So, isn't it a SPORTSTER?



It's a PROPER Sportster.
