Harley Davidson from the year 2020

we all heard how they are going to make an electric Harley (you don't have to push it as long as the extension cord is long enough) but what didn't make the news, was they are also going to make a new sport bike (think Ninja) and the "Future Custom" which is supposed to be a cruiser, but...

I did stumble across a picture of the "Future Custom". maybe they got their pictures mixed up and this is really the sport bike.

whatever it is I like it.

who'da thunk, the Year 2020 is only 2 years away.

    If it's a Harley, it will still leak. [:D]

    Think both of the new ones are water cooled. At least the Pan America was.

    Looks like the Street fighter had a radiator too.

    IDK about that. All the newer ones don't and I'm around 100's of the EVO and newer ones every week.

    Looks like a Jap bike with bigger wheels. Except more expensive. As always The EPA is pushing all motor Bikes to water cool versions.

    Looks like a V-Rod, and a Fat-Boy must of had sex, and since it isn't a BMW it must be good...[;)]

    bejeezus, if those other Harleys from the sailboat thread cost 44/45K you know a new one of these is going to cost more.

    no way would I sink 50K into something that can get smashed in an instant. what's that saying, "it's not if you get in a wreck, it's when you get in a wreck..."

    First they abandon bikers and target the yuppies who buy anything that says Harley Davidson on it, this has bikes priced as
    Much as a new Camry.

    Now they are targeting kids with zoomie bikes.

    I?ll never own another Harley, they lost my business just as Ford did with luxury car pricing of pickup trucks.

    Harley Davidson gives the best demo rides of any of the manufacturers.

    Id like to see bags or at least the option for bags in a few of these- but I will say this, im intrigued.

    "Naked" bikes are selling. You know the ones that originated from wrecked sportbikes that the owner could not afford new fairings for. Here's a Yamaha one. The japos copied the cruiser line from HD - what goes around ..comes around.

    A used custom that can be bought for pennies on the dollar, you can get one hell of a nice bike for under $10K.
