Well, color me impressed! (With the guy who moved to Michigan, that is.)

However, it may make more horsepower (but less torque) a bit higher in the rev range.



Still, I can understand why Harley likes to advertise torque figures - they give you some idea of how it moves at low RPM. I recently test rode a Buell XB12STT, and while I have to really wind up the GS500F I normally ride to get it to take off hard, the Thunderstorm would pull hard from 2,000 RPM on up.

I'm sticking with my original opinion. That is, it's a Street Bob for the rider with:

a) 1/3 fewer dollars

b) a short inseam

c) no Y chromosome



Bet they sell enough of 'em to make the board happy with the P&L again this year...

He posted that same line about 4 times already. Who is he trying to convince, us or himself?

I don't know, I wish I didn't argue with him, it makes me feel ill, and I swear I'm dumber afterwards.

So if a Sportster is a "Sporty", is the Nightster a "Nightie"???

Speaking of MotorcycleDaily, did anyone notice that they completely scooped MO on the new Trump 675 Hooligan?
