Yeah, but the Bolt was modeled on the Sportster, so all is fair.

They already have US prices posted. It will be here by 2nd quarter 2014.
HD needed something to replace the blast.
I'm not crazy over it but will take it for what it is. This is a true beginners bike.
If my 4'11" wife was in the market she would probably be considering it.
And it does have potential (did you see the video with the concepts?) if you have thousands to pour into it.

To be honest it reminds me of a V-rod blast or is it a blast v-rod

What I am wondering is if folks out there think the Sporty is a girls bike what are they gonna call this?

HD made a point of saying it's made of steel. So, it's a metal POS imitation.
