    I like the look of the street fighter.
    Could do well.
    The adventure bike looks like it was designed on an etch a sketch. Ugliest bike since the fat bob twin cam.

    Re: Has Harley gone a bit bonkers?

    Looks like a desperate bid to claw their way into other markets to me with designers that are struggling with ideas.

    The naked bike looks like the failed MT01;



    The adventure bike is Fugly beyond belief and it will probably weigh a ton, unlike all the latest Adventure bikes which are offering high tech suspension, traction control, sports bike performance and genuine ability off road so tough market to try and throw a bike over the wall and cross their fingers someone needs to go to spec-savers and wants to be individual enough to buy it.



    The flat-track bobber is just odd and appears to appeal to wanna-be rap gangsters with the White and Gold colour scheme.

    The Indian Flat Tracker is by far a more beautiful bike.

    Had to check it wasn't April when I saw the posts today. Lost the plot comes to mind......or maybe Trump has influence on how to overcome the 20% import tax

    Hi John,

    It looks crap, even if it rides well I'll never swing my leg over it, the front end and exhaust have to be the ugliest I've ever seen. And just because we are a Harley club don't mean we have to like new models - we ain't HOG! Anyway - thats just my opinion, freely expressed on the forum, no one is obliged to agree, anymore than I have to like the direction H-D is going.
