Alright! H-D makes the big jump to 1500cc! I'll bet Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha -- with their 1700cc, 1800cc, and 2000cc V-twin models -- will be shaking in their boots.

Default Actually pretty significant...

6 speed instead of 5 on ALL transmissions. EFI on ALL Twin Cam engines.



So its a nontrivial bump to their whole line. Dragging em kicking and screaming into the end of teh 20th century...

They would be shaking.... with ecstacy if they could sell even half as many big cruisers.
