Alright! H-D makes the big jump to 1500cc! I'll bet Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha -- with their 1700cc, 1800cc, and 2000cc V-twin models -- will be shaking in their boots.

Default Actually pretty significant...

6 speed instead of 5 on ALL transmissions. EFI on ALL Twin Cam engines.

They would be shaking.... with ecstacy if they could sell even half as many big cruisers.
