Looking at the info would say not a sportster as different chassis and a brand new liquid cooled engine, so not a great deal of common ground.

Would say based on its original market aside from USA being Italy, India, Portugal and Spain they're going for the commuter/big city with lots of bikes market

Think it could be a good shout for Harley getting into the Indian and European commuter markets, wouldn't go for one personally though

Ah, sorry I missed that one...

Seems like I'm not doing a very good job of getting stuff in the right spot, I'll try to do better...

Looks like a Shadow or something.

Also the radiator looks fugly. And the rear fender is plastic.

They killed the Buell line to launch this?

No, thanks. Glad I already purchased my bike, every new model they launch, they make love me more my motorcycle.

I want to like them. I would be a lot more excited about them if they were made in the states. I feel like they arent really harleys.
