Yes but the Sportster one is from more solid material, this ones are just thin walled box section, you can se the dent where the wheel axle is clamping it. But I will admitt the Sporty one are not my cup of tea, that's why I bought the JMC.

Ok, I understand.
My post wasnt that serious. I have to wait until I have seen these new bikes myself.
For that price I think that they might sell. It would be nice if HD could attract a younger crowd. And I think that HD needs more liquid cooled models if emission and fuel regulations in some areas of the world gets too tough to fulfill with the aircooled models.

It weighs similar to a solid mount Sportster, 492lbs vs. 584lbs(2014 1200C) so stock to stock if it has around 60 hp I'd say it will give the 1200 a run for the money. Good to see they finally are trying to get some of their investment in the Revolution engine back.

I would happily own one if it is putting out 60 horses. It looks pretty damn good.

I think you may be thinking of rubber mounts (i.e2014) ... solid mounts are right around 500 lbs. dry. And I think I saw a HP figure for the new 750 around the mid-50's. I assume that's at the crank. so probably mid-high 40's at the rear wheel. Don't think a 1200 solid mount has much to worry about... heck, I don't think a good Stage 1 883 has either.

We do this because the concept is so good
Doesn't matter what brand, there are always people replacing pipes/tunes and suspensions, and seats etc.

There are BMW and Ducati guys who upgrade all those things, even brakes sometimes.

THAT SAID, I think Harley PURPOSELY leaves more power on the table to encourage sales of accessories.

Hell, the fact that they sell 50 state legal modified mufflers proves that.

Now those annoying hipster guys will have something other than CB350s to ride.

Sorry about my mistake, I mixed up with the plastic oil tank on the newer rubbermounts.
