A Pig is a Pig is a Pig

 

HD makes the same shet with different lipstick.  I called it a while back.  They have a brand new 750 motor, they can refine and build a decent V-twin but instead they stick to the same old PIG Er uh I mean HOG

I think they finally nailed what a Harley should be, lightweight with a big vtwin between your legs.  Although the price is still WAY too high.

Their 2020 lineup looks interesting but your right they need to do something other than just slapping lipstick on a hog lol

Are you looking at the same bike?  The cornering angle based on the images is still 4 degrees, pegs are to far forward.  All they did was introduce the FXR again.  This is what Harley is
A outdated design with no innovation to reduce weight, increase cornering, change ergonomics bringing to the market place a new Harley.  Nothing wrong with Nostalgia, I have great respect for HD's history and accomplishments.  They want to stay in a market that was built 70 years ago in a market that is more urbanized and the transformer look (Which I hate BTW)

Lean angle is only 32.6° right and 32.8° left, fork rake is 34°, the controls are too far forward, it is too heavy and too expensive.  Other than that I think they nailed it.  Hopefully they do better with the upcoming Streetfighter.

Isnt the max lean angle on the FZ in the high 40s?? 32 doesnt sound to sporty to me.  And almost 630lbs dry?! STARTING at 21k?! 

It pains me to say @r1limited is right, but......

Looks like hd is using weight to dampen engine vibration again. I mean still.
