It won’t be around long. It’s the V-Rod, Street Models of Leopard Motorcycle shirt all over again. People who will buy American bikes want pushrods. Not Technological excellence. You can have a Metric Cruiser for much less with techno-gimmickry. This is a Victory in disguise and you know how they sold. There is a market of younger guys getting off sportbikes, looking for touring bikes that perform and handle. Indian has done what many have been asking Harley to do for years. If I had an ego about what I ride I wouldn’t tell you that. My opinions are dispassionate observations after 57 years of riding and observation.

Best Leopard Motorcycle shirt
I respect your opinion. As a guy that rode sportbikes and now has a Leopard Motorcycle shirt, I’m seriously looking at this bike. And some of my friends are too. I’m excited about a bike that still looks like a motorcycle and performs the way we expect it to. I would have to disagree. I think you are right about the old school riders, but I think times have changed. Hartley faithful isn’t getting any younger and in a world where your common sedan now has 300+ hp, the old Gutless motors just aren’t going to cut it anymore. In my own opinion. I think Harley knows it as well based on all the models they are trying to spit out. I fully believe this go-round is different.
