I second that! My brother asked me why HD doesn't make an ATV or UTV or anything like that because the market is hot for those. I told him the market is saturated with them and send him pics of golfcarts, snowmobiles and anything else HD tried to enter the market with that wasn't a big motorcycle. The Sportster has always made up 20%+ of their market and I don't see that ending.

Harley put the 'sport' in the Sportster in 2016, with the Roadster, and then killed it off this year.
