HD Just cut off there Dyna models production, changed the frame layout of there softtails. I'm not sure why cut the dyna, maybe to pull people like me into there ugly as hell softtails? (only two softtails I like are the rockers and night trains and they cut those years ago). They changed the motors to liquid cooled, actually balanced the motors so they don't shake so much, new rear suspension like a sport bike. That was something they should have done a long time ago but cut the best looking *sport bikes* they make for it, really stupid. There was a reason sorta why I bought a dyna over a softtail, they have a hard time selling bikes to yonger people basically cause of the price so they increase the price hahaha. I guess ill be going back to Jap bikes, unless indina makes something decent looking in the future.

I'm wondering if they will go bust again? But I don't really care if they do, they shot themselves in the foot I feel on this haha. I don't see this being able to compare to imported bikes. Only HD can take old technology and say its cutting edge.

At the price they cost anyway I'd never be able to buy one. Upwards of 150,000$, ill stick with my less then 20k bikes.

Indeed. I really like the new Indian Scout and I'm glad to see it's all liquid.

That's a nice looking bike. One of the few front fairings I don't mind looking at.

The new Indians just look like the victory with a new name. To me Indians look the best in the 30s and 40s. To me most new bikes are following cars they are just getting ugly and over priced.
If somebody gave me a new indian id probably keep it and ride it, but the new Harleys id just trade it in on a hayabusa, zx1400 or a big bore enduro.

I'm glad to see they (HD) are at least trying to save weight and gain some all-around performance

I could get on board with the new HDs... The new Fat Bob doesn't look half bad. Combine that with some added cornering clearance and it could be a fun bike.

I recently did a paid 5-day market research study for Harley Davidson. They hired a 3'rd party firm to facilitate the study and they didn't make it known from the beginning that it was paid by HD, but it was easy to figure out before they told us on the 5th day.

Anyways, they were looking for opinions of people who ride 125-150cc street legal motorcycles and scooters. Most everyone in the study rode Groms and Z125's.

The fact HD did this study tells me they are really reaching out to find new markets and likely reach a younger crowd.

I'm still waiting on my paycheck.... fuckers

A Grom sized HD would just look like a Power Wheels bike...
