A new direction for Harley Davidson

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' at netrider.net.au started by jd, Oct 11, 2006.

  1. Seems to have been a few new concepts unveiled at the Intermot show in Cologne - including a new prototype from Harley based on the old flat track racers. Aimed at the European market power's only around 90hp however it does feature USD Showa forks and Nissin brakes aimed at making it (supposedly) handle exceptionally well. Must admit I do like the look of it, be interesting to see how well it's accepted by Harley and non-Harley riders.

  6. I HATE harley davidson's traditional bikes.

    But that thing is totally sexy & I want to touch it in special ways.

    VERY nice looking bike, would love to take one for a test ride & see how it handles.

  8. Not a fan of the colour scheme, but does look like very ridable bike. If it goes as good as they say I might even consider trading in the Hyo... :LOL:

  19. Are Hardly ridables any more reliable than they used to be? It still amazes me how many I see getting brought down the gillies range on the back of tow trucks broken down.
    I live at the base of the Gillies range in Cairns and I can't help but notice how many problems people have with them.
    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Personally I can't see the appeal in the things, But each to his/her own of course.

    But I will say this is the first time I have looked a harley and thought it looked pretty good.
