    I like it. It's a step in the right direction with the 17 inch wheels, low bars, improved peg placement and higher output engine.

    On par with the Kawasaki Z650? Are they talking the 68 hp? Weight and handling I would think are pretty far apart. And most likely fuel consumption. Don't get me wrong I like it and I am not a Harley fan. Just that comparison seems a bit of a reach.
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.

    Definitely the direction I wanted to see the street 750 go in. Now to make a 1000cc version with a little over 100 hp, clip-ons, and real rearsets, and I might actually be interested in this segment, I think they need to make something (at least an options package) that competes with the thruxton 1200r (i realize the thruxton is $6k more.expensive) or bin the whole idea.
    I'd pay real money for something that comes close to a Ducati sport classic for cheaper, or even something that reminds me of when Harley still made competitive race bikes. This is the closest they've come since the xr1200, which I love, and wish more people had bought.

    I don't like the bar, or the mirrors. But it looks like an XR1200 Jr., which is good because the XR is a decent bike, but too heavy. This might be a good size for it.
    I always find a soap box useful to get on my high horse.

    You are right. They might sell in the rest of the world but not here.

    If it's tall enough, it could almost replace my old guzzi, but another Guzzi would be cooler, and probably cheaper
