I dont care how it looks, its a Harley, so it has absolutely no chance of ever getting into my garage, apart from the fact that it comes from Trumpland, which I have boycotted.

Please don't bring politics into this wonderful forum.     There are other places for that.     :821:

It appears to have been very hard with an ugly stick. Other than that, I hope it's amazing and forces everyone to raise the bar.
Cheers, Ian

Hideous-looks like it was designed by a committee.  :004: Nice to see Harley finally trying to enter the 20th century though

Pretty sure I wouldn't be able to afford it even if it wasn't ugly as sin... :110:

See,  you guys don't see the brilliance in the ugly.   Sure you get the bike and it isn't everything you hoped but you need to put the screaming eagle exhaust on it, then buy the dual headlight kit.  Oh don't forget the Harley branded seat, and the luggage.  Now don't tell me you are not going to ride without your Harley adventure gear.   You need to customize it and make it your own, just like everyone else that buys one. :)

The bike will be the cheapest part of the entire purchase. 

Seriously though, I think there are pretty well defined criteria that it will need to meet if it wants to compete, HP, weight, handling, reliability, etc.   I am curious to see where they fall in the group.

Does it come with a case of oil for the first week of operation? :164:

Yes and a small trailer to carry the full workshop tool assortment around, with an ample amount of spare nuts and bolts to replace those lost.

Did I already say that its Hideous?

If that engine is derived from the V-rod, it is probably the finest motor that HD has ever produced. Sadly, did not migrate into their touring products and lacked the vibration and noise and crudeness that HD customers demand.

The V-rod was destined to fail, as it was the only HD engine that actually turned unleaded fuel into horsepower.     :164:
