Yeah, where is the smog monster? I can't believe they did this comparo without the smog monster. MO has definitely shown its bias.

Default No Trailering info.

I was hoping MO would include GVWR information on these models. I wish to know which would be most capable of towing a goose-neck trailer with a 40hp Kubota tractor.



Another question- does one "ride' these bikes or does one "sit" on these bikes. My guess is the latter.

posercycles kind of sums up how europa sees harleys. here, the japanese makers outsell HD by quite a large margin; harley is indeed seen as an interesting piece of americana, but not very practical considering their prices.

No, none of the metric V-twin cruisers are identical copies of a Harley. The average Harley owner wouldn't know that, however, because Harley owners don't know anything about other motorcycles.

The Roadliner is horrible...what gaudy sense of style...dont like it. I guess to each his/her own but I really think these bikes will not be remembered in any favorable light style-wise.

That CVO Springer is in another league IMO. Take a rig like that to the local bike night and you'll see the masses walk right past the other bikes in this comparison to cast their winning vote.

"One too many cylinders to be compared with this crowd I think."



So a cruiser is defined by how many cylinders it has?

You must be wearing the typical HD blinders.

I'm a Harley owner and I'd bet my last buck that I forgot more about other motorcycles than you ever knew. Why don't you just go buy a Harley already. If you get any greener, you will be mistaken for a pine tree.

So Fonzie got labeled "Masaji" eh? I fondly remember the masaji's I got when I lived in Korea. Hurts so good. And then of course, they have the "special masaji"...
