    Lock up your Evo’s and Knuckles, surley the end of the world is nigh with all this calamitous news! This rough beast is off to Jerusalem for the second coming.

    On a less spiritual note, I see the reasoning with most learners licences round the world limited in horse power not CC’s anymore ,Suzuki and others get a big part of that market.
    And it is big and you capture the soul straight away.

    Also with allot more women and smaller stature people wanting to ride it makes some sense.

    Then when the Baby Boomers cannot hold up their Dressers, they can use one of these to go off and get the 13 different colored pills they need to live from the pharmacey each week.
    With Born to Be wild Blaring through their drug assisted life. Everyone will be happy.

    The idea makes sense and even though I thoroughly dislike water cooling, It is a part of survival in the future .
    Dont like the corporate speak with false enthusiasm and silly hair cuts.
    Talk about acting……

    But now this siliines is out of the way, can they just please fix the back guard of the Fat Bob and bring back the Springer……Please God make them listen

    im liking the pricing, this would put this in contention for a cheap commuter bike while sticking to HD

    Eeek, not sure how it would like my 6′ 2″, 220lb biodegradable mass. Likely more suited to the diminutive architectural mass of the Eastern end of the third rock from the sun.

    If this is the “future” (please Lord have mercy and kindly take note of the crazy Kiwi 😉 then I would rather join ‘The Pickers’ and look up all those pre-’08-Fin-Collapse incongruities, grind off all the cake-decorations, pull in some of the rake and stretch and live happily ever after in the land of the (torque) giants…

    At the same show Yamaha introduced the 700cc twin MT07 which weighs 382# WET! And I seriously doubt it will cost more than these. I get it, v-twin, HD , yada yada…….seriously doubt these HD’s will sell that well stateside.

    Dung soup.

    In times past no one wanted dung soup because it was watered down. Now that your beloved Motor Company serves it in small portions [ wishy washy ] loyal’s jump on the band wagon saying what a great idea. Hypocritical ?

    No Not hypocritical just realistic

    SURVIVAL into the future.. I can’t stand water cooling and I’ve barely come to grips with fuel injection.

    I bought my first new Hd in 1983..it was not good and the motor lunched ,the crank pin failed.

    These bikes will still be quality, and they have things like …..gasp.. steel guards which so many bikes dont…including the Bonnie

    Me thinks the great unwashed are running scared.

    Tokyo news just anounced the Japanese motorcycle industry is asking for protection…joke

    I missed the memo, do we get extra points for using big words now? Does condescension cost extra?

    I suspect they will do well here in the USA if they get them here. They’re offering a first time rider bike at a price many will be able to afford without taking out a second mortgage or doing the 6 year payment plan.

    Those who buy these bikes will most likely stay with the H-D brand when they move up to a larger more expensive bike. This concept has been around for decades and has worked very well with all the Metric Manufacturers. H-D hasn’t been in this position (Sportsters don’t count as a small bike) and now they will be.

    Oh and water cooled means easily meeting future and current EPA standards.

    I think it’s a smart move on their part.

    dam I was so excited as the first pics on the page were showing the bikes from behind and I was thinking wow, 2 new Harleys….then I see the front of the bikes…

    I want an Indian Scout < $10K.

  11. 11 Seymour Nov 6th, 2013 at 2:40 am

    my gosh really? 6 separate stories on this? I think we believe it by now?

  12. 12 Mr Dick Nov 6th, 2013 at 8:16 am

    A watered down Harley? Ever wonder why G.M. builds “cheap” Cadillacs nowadays? People want one, but can’t afford the 100K Escalades. I suppose the Caddy owners turn their noses up too. I am on my third CVO, but I ain’t gonna whine because some kid wants one of these new Hogs.

  13. 13 JackS Nov 6th, 2013 at 8:26 am

    I still haven’t seen the left side of the bike. Does it have a cowbell horn cover? Shouldn’t there be at least one picture of the other side of the bike? And a video of someone swinging a leg over doesn’t count.

    I can’t stand when some corporate marketing design type cool guy tells me when something is “beautiful”. If it is people shouldn’t need him to bring it to their attention (ie: the gas tank). I guess I need to see it in person. I know it’s the RaRa roll out, and it’s cool The MoCo is going in a different direction, (they needed those models/markets) but the buzz word, cheese factor & manufactured enthusiasm of the videos bugs me to no end.

  15. 15 Terence Tory Nov 6th, 2013 at 9:25 am

    Dr. Doom.I’d have to agree with you.When I viewed the first video time seemed to go into reverse and I swear the clock stopped.

    HD had to get into the beginner game, too much market there, like mentioned, this will lead first time buyers into the bigger bikes later hopefully securing a future market for HD. That’s a comment from the 2014 me, the 1969 me, that went for his first ride on the back of a HD with my Dad says; “This is the end……….. beautiful friend…………..the end”.
