Funny, they get rid of the guy that laid that on their door step 10 years ago. Wonder what Erik is working on now? Oh wait, electric motorcycles?

900 pound plus underpowered over priced versions of light quick nimble do not work. HD is as performance oriented as a 1972 cadillac. More likely they will either qickly buy or slowly buy and shut down a competent bike. Just to get it out of there system. Ahhhhh. That felt good.

1125R
Still the one.
I will bet it is more than a tad heavier too,
especially the front brake!!!

I would like to see the performance numbers on the HD Streetfighter....being liquid cooled with overhead cams should open up for alot more power than the old HD POS air cooled noise makers.

I just can't get past the headlights they are putting on these new bikes. Fugly. If that adventure had a more traditional headlight assembly I'd seriously consider it but as it is probably not.

The Indian is nice but not my cup of tea at 488 lbs empty. Of course the new H-D 975 and 1200 Streetfighter could be even more weighty pigs. H-d has to beat or equal the 1125R or the comparison will be drawn by every media in the world, the bike would be DOA. Let's see what the sales numbers are for the Indian FTR at 120hp & $13,499. The FTR 1200S is $2,000 more and 497 lbs dry! WTF?
Indian
