It's about the time we get a real performance street bike to Europe. This is just going to annihilate the liter gixxer blown streetfighters of the bombers.

Seriously speaking, do the corporation suits really think this is the bike for the younger tastes? Good Lord. What is the median age of their market research, 87?

Dude, you're slipping. You forgot to work "61hp" into your post.

Don't let it happen again.

Ain't it ironic that the only company he hates unmercifully, he supposedly owns a bike from that very company? I think somebody did a rolling burnout on his brain not too long ago........and not with a Harley, because they can't do em.

This is dirt track for the Pepsi Generation. A miss in my humble opinion.
I bet since Kawi redesigned the Z1000, Harley figured the parallel upswept pipes were fair game. Dibs!

Seriously, the styling isn't that bad. It kinda reminds me of a sportier version of the iconic 1980's UJMs. Considering that almost every one of their current bikes is based on 1940's and 1950's styling, 1980's styling is modern. ;o)

You are right as usual longride. It is ironic that a guy who has a certain brand of bike does not adoringly praise any unspeakable turd that his brand might produce. That he does not close his eyes from appalling deficiencies such as 61 hp (see Seruzawa I might be typing this without pants but I’m not slipping).

Talking about ironic, did you not notice this worster (albeit with rubber mountings), this grand daddy of anything that is still produced today, is touted as some sort of modern performance street bike for European youngsters? Irony, anyone? Hello?

I mean why don’t you guys just send us some groovy burgundy red Luminas with chrome tipped exhaust pipes.

Cool. You worked in 61 horsepower! I guess you are done for the day. Go take a break. I think your head is smoking.

How come this modern Performance Street accessory is sold only in Europe? This is what happened at the Motor Corporation:

After Edsel Buffington, President of the Modern Performance Street Design Department, 87, had finished with the concept, a silence fell. It was obvious to everyone the core market (Alabama) was ripe for a new technical breakthrough after the rubber mounting revolution. But there was none. The Junior Vice President Montgomery B. J. Blooberson, 85, put it into words: "we can't sell this smekma even in Boise Idaho".
