Well...like it, hate it or get used to it I guess...
I wonder if they started using metric sizes nuts and bolts to keep it together?

Thanks for sharing Stairman!

It's not the typical bike I go for but I think it's kinda cool. It looked better in person when I saw it at the motorcycle expo in Milan a few months back. Reminds me of my buddy's Diavel quite a bit. As much as I like Harleys I think I'd much rather have a Ducati than a Harley equivalent tho.

My gut tells me it won't be a hot seller. A ton of other options in the street fighter segment, many of which will likely be cheaper and many of which will likely cost about the same as this but already have a strong following and/or are super tried and true. What do I know tho.

The product offerings are definitely changing these days.

The Max is an entirely new liquid-cooled, 60-degree V-twin, available in two displacement sizes—975cc and 1,250cc. The smallest of the two versions underlines the Bronx and is expected to produce more than 115 horsepower and more than 70 lb-ft of torque, in Harley’s words. Power is sent to the back via a belt final drive.



Hmmmmmmm ... not my bike ... but anything that is successful at keeping HD in business should help at keeping the air-cooled Sportster offerings... Since it is really good as a platform for building whatever you want, even having only a couple Sportster models will be sufficient to keep the bloodline flowing...

Will be interesting to see final price vs performance, sport bikes are a very competitive field.
You ask most people why they bought a Harley and the answer is usually "because i wanted a harley"

Won't fly with this crowd, but i'm quietly excited.

Looks like the new guy killed this. The Pan America and the High Performance Custom Model are still listed under Future Bikes on the HD site, but the Bronx/Streetfighter is missing. I forget which one they were calling it on the site.

Looks to me like a reverse scenario of the Honda Shadow, V-Star ect. An underpowered cheap copy of their competitors.
This had better be priced right in order to compete with Z1000, FZ1, Ducs ect. It might make up for sales on people stuck on the name on the gas tank.

I wish the Yamaha MT bikes didn't look like Transformers cartoons. If you're going to make it look like a cartoon, make it look like Jessica Rabbit.
