    The main competitor of the new small Harley 500 cc.

    That’s an UGLY motor. All that busy crap surrounding the skinny cylinder looks like shit. But the rest of the bike is great looking

    I’d sure like to see a new Interceptor twin from Enfield.

    Looks great. New frame. New fork. New Rear swing arm. Engine isn’t so bad either. Looks much better than the original Continental from back in the day.

    Gotta love a Thumper, great retro approach, or if you want more modern lines there’s always the 650 Suzuki Savage. This is a niche H-D coulda/shoulda offered as an entry/lightweight level bike instead of the Buell Blast.

    Brembo brakes, Paoli shocks, frame designed by Harris engineering in the UK ( featherbed type), Fuel Injection by Keihin – Produced in the brand the new state-of-the-art factory. Fit and finish is world class.
    MSRP to be announced soon, it will be very aggressively priced. In EPA and CARB testing at a California Lab at present. Delivery in the US toward the end of the year is anticipated.

    Classic looks, many nice features, should be the right starter bike for many. Like to know the price and weight.

    Of course you could just always buy a new Yamaha SR400.A proven platform of quality and longevity,with a Grand Prix winning heritage.They are virtually unchanged as a model for thirty-five years and have been virtually handmade in production far longer than any Harley motor model.I don’t mind Enfield Bullets,they are idea for dodging trucks and cows motoring down the Grand Trunkway.
