Looks like someone microwaved a little B-King casserole to me. Too bad it's been in the fridge too long and is already moldy.

Lots of styling cues from Triumph in evidence here. Pictures look pretty dark. This needs to be seen in person.

The obvious Tiger/S3 engine treatment with the bright engine bolts sort of gives a clue. Not that there is anything wrong with trying to emulate the definitive streetfighter, the S3.

Default Plastic paneling is so tasty

Its amazing how the public taste has totally gone down the drain during the years. For fugs sake compare it to Z1000 of 1978.

I guess the only question that everyone wants to know is how will Harley top this bike? I don't think they can, so Harley might as well just close up shop and tell everyone to go home. I'm playing Cruz Yurup for the day, and believe me, it ain't pretty.

I thought it was styled al la B-King, maybe a touch less radical but at least a bit similar.

Can't arugue with the price, that's a HEAP O' MOTORCYCLE for a LOW LOW EVERYDAY PRICE of TEN FIVE NINEY NINE NINEY NINE!!!

Getcha on down to Klazy Ken Klawi Klingdom for yours TODAY!
