Finally, a 17" rear rim instead of that stupid 16" fat piece that never suited the Sporty from day one? 18" front? More travel? 4.5 gallon tank? Is the chopper look finally losing traction after all these years? Shock and awe.

Bon Jour. Damn that's really nice looking. Au Revoir!

The beer is really good here!

Nice looking motorcycle. That ol' Sporty will never die, just looks and sounds too good.

Hmmm... the wheels and tank are a good first step. Next, give it full suspension travel and a 1200 version. Then Harley will have an actual Sportster in the line-up again after the Roadster's inexcusable demise.

Wouldn't a Roadster with the XR1200 engine be lovely?

Hmmmm... wouldn't that be the 2011 XR1200X available in August?

Did I mention the beer is really good here? Hiccup!

So larger rear wheel, different shocks(that bottom out) wider handle bars and pegs that scrap. I'd say that's about .000005% improved. How ever to be honest it does look better than previous sportsters. And to the new Harley rider isnt that what its all about, looks?Does it still have the heaviest clutch in the business?

About the same level of improvement as in the average sport bike. eh? LOL!

I think the 18/19 combo works best for the older bias rims. Now that you can put some decent 17/18 radials on Sporties they need to increase ground clearance and suspension travel. I really do wish Harley would knock off the "Low" bullsh*t, maybe one or two models like this but every bike except the FLH series is a bit much
