So a mini V-Rod motor in a smaller (lighter, at least by Harley's standards) chassis.

Interesting, don't want one, but don't hate em.

Will have to see one in person. Too hard to tell from pics. I would not have anticipated a 500 twin.

the 500 twin might be just the ticket to set some really fast 500cc records at Bonneville!! But I cannot tell if it is still pushrod or not. Does anybody know?

I've been reading about their big push to sell bikes in India.
They would have to be liquid cooled to survive over there...

I like the seven spoke wheels and the semi turtle style tank. Definitely see a Sportster resemblance.

I think it looks good for the market they want to sell into, I'd give it a thumbs up. Any idea of HP ratings? Or should the 883 be scared?

John

Don't think so, 4V/cylinder and loosely based on V-Rod at least in name (Revolution motor).
