Re: New MO Poll/Survey
 
Well, I think it's a cool bike. But (there's always a "but"), I tend to agree with Longride. Seems to me that it's too much of a tweener. There are certainly people who will go bonkers over it; whether that's enough to justify production is open to debate. I don't think they're going to steal a whole lot of naked sport riders, even in Europe. They may grab a few cruiser riders that want something a little sportier, but the anti-Harley bias and price/performance will probably make the XR a non-starter with the import crowd.



Probably too close to the Buell concept, too.



That said, I hope they put it into production, if only to see if we're all wrong.



One other note: From my understanding, the original XLCR was essentially nothing more than a tarted-up Sportster. Sexy bodywork but no more power (even though it was claimed otherwise) than the standard bike. Bad chassis, suspension and brakes, too. The XR-1000 didn't make much more power and was fairly unreliable. This new bike seems to be a much more serious piece.

You know this as well as I do that performance issue does exist, in a big way. I want more power, and somehow I get the feeling I am not alone. All these guys going stage this and cam that.



Nothing new there. What´s new is that the market is changing rapidly. Look at the real power cruisers out there. Lame old 64 hp on a dyno doesn´t cut it any more.

Now you're asking to get your air conditioning and all your power outlets secured for "troubleshooting" for about a month.



Don't f0ck with the snipes.

Yes, agreed, absolutely. I would have also liked to see a bigger tank. I know the peanut tank is distintive, but this one is too small for this bike.

What do you expect from a senior citizen-fleecing, war mongering, Fox News addict?
