To me, that's a huge styling clue difference between an old bike and a new bike that it easy to spot from a mile away, like comparing a V7 Classic or Racer to a real V7 Sport or 850 Lemans with a Tonti frame..
Well then I don't get your point. I loved my EVO RK, but the current M8 motor, 6-spd, linked Brembo brakes through the ABS or advanced RDRS (ABS, Traction Control etc) system, with stiffer chassis, better suspension, longer lasting dual compound rubber etc is miles and miles ahead of an old EVO.You don't argue that the new product isn't worth the price because you can have an antique for less that is half as capable JUST because it looks similar.
It's probably the best looking modern Harley cruiser that I've seen... just wish that hunkin' metallic dash wasn't stuck onto the tank, breaking up the basic aesthetics.
I guess where we depart ways is in whether or not we think this or a V7 is trying to pretend to be something it is not.This isn't a fake non-functional kickstarter bolted to the case of an electric start motor. This is a modem, functional, capable bike with styling cures based on a classic. That doesn't mean it's pretending anything, it's imitating form/beauty, but it's true to form and self.It's not an EVO with fake Panhead styled rocker boxes.There is something aesthetically pleasing about the natural, flowing classic lines of some motorcycles over the more angular, unnatural, insectoid shapes that dominate too many modern designs.Personally I feel this way about a number of things from houses to cars and trucks too. The neo-Beetles, the Mini Coopers, hell the last mustangs found their way back to classic lines over the soap bars that dominated the automotive landscape for too long. Wranglers fall into this category, hell I even think our new Defender got it right by taking cues from the past.Even our Monster, one generation after the full trellis was abandoned is still more or less a bike with classic lines, even if it's the arguably the most modern looking machine in the garage (maybe more so than the Defender).
I think it is a very cool motorcycle, and I would be proud to own it.Although, personally I have a lot of other items higher on my wish list before I would purchase that bike.Toy Hauler / CamperMiata RF or 370Z NismoHD LivewireMoto Guzzi V85TT AnniversaryKawasaki KLX300SMHD Pan AmericaI am going to try my neighbors Yamaha Tenere 700 so that might jump on the list.
Sorry, but the below is the bet lookin HD ever made... Period
