I second the rumor. The HD will benefit from the Buell development, but not the heads per se. Remember the intake architecture of the Buells is very different -- vertical versus right side of the engine.

Third... Definately rubber mounts, styling is "freshened up" but it's still clearly a sportster.



Not sure about V-rods, although some new colors would be cool. Not sure if that would count as a "new model" though.

I can see the V-Rod motor put in a more practical package like the Super Glide. The Sporty will probably move closer to Buell. How much, I hve no idea, but Buell parts will more than likely show on the Sporty. Should be interesting. Ashely, tell Mr. Bass to show at the Harley 100th.

Sad to say I agree with you and I own HD bikes. I hope HD takes thier initive from the launch of the vrod and runs with it.



If all they can come up with is different colours and a 45hp vibration free sportster, then I'm done with HD. I may as well buy old shovels and fix 'em up, at least it would seperate me from grey ponytail crowd with thier 100 anniversary Roadkings.

Well I just ordered a 2003 883...what should I do ? Cancel or change it to a 2004 model. I don't like the idea of purchasing something that is being introduced for the first year unless it's just some simple changes. I'm looking for a go slow and somewhat comfortable bike. I put money down on a 2003 883c. Now what ???

You can quit speculating and see the first pics and read the real scoop on Motorcyclist at http://motorcyclecruiser.com/newsandupdates/2004HD/ I still think the real reason so many hypercycle riders spend so much time on this forum is because their overpowered and uncomfortable bikes make it safer and more comfortable for them to spend their time sitting at a computer raving about how wonderful their bikes are...

Get the 883 and ride it. If you decide you don't want it, I'm sure someone will take it off your hands for full price and then get the 04. It's a no lose purchase.

101-20=81.



That's 81 years of Triumph. All the fumes from those burning zeners are getting to you.

Nope, the reason we spend so much time here is that we actually arrive to the place we are going.

we also have the luxury of having soo much free time since we dont have to rebuild our engines once a month.
