Default Learning Curve

I heard pretty much the same things I'm seeing in the posts when Honda started selling big bikes in the US. If these guys are this good out of the box, in a few years they're going to be selling a LOT of bikes. I'll bet their product cycles will be much faster than the established builders and their 2ond and 3rd generation bikes will be outstanding, and relatively cheap. The Chinese will do the same in spades. What a great time to be a rider, so many cool choices...

Default A good chick's bike

Nice review.. I can see how it could be confused with the V-Rod from a distance.. I think it might be a good bike for my wife.. If I could get some HD stickers to put on it. Great pictures...

Default The big factor is the exchange rate...

I think the exchange rate will continue be the biggest factor in how these bikes will sell, because in that market segment price is everything. [*]With W's reckless fiscal policy of record budget deficits. which will be passed on the next administration and generation, you will see the dollar to continue it's death sprial See the 5 year chart[*]The Chinese currency has been falling ever since it was unpegged. [*]So the Koreans are figuring out that those dollars we pay them aren't worth much. Our manufacturing base is gone, hi-tech is crippled and our Walmart economy won't be able to sustain our appepite for Japanese, Chinese and Korean goods. Plus oil prices will rise because the Arabs will figure out that our dollar isn't worth shyt. [*]Thank God we have the worlds most productive farmers and the best aerospace companies in the world exporting planes, satellites , missiles, fighters, etc.

I'm waiting to see what they can do with a 1000 cc twin. Might be interesting. They could really have something in another 5 years. They have sound concepts and are targeting the right groups. I bit of improvement in disign and overall quality, then who knows...

It's nice and all, but is it fast enough to escape from the Fire Nation? (sorry, I have young kids)
