Pictures are really starting to pop up in places. Guess prototypes are on the roads. This color looks better than the orange tank one.

Could be interesting. I would probably never own one, but i would like to ride one.

The upright seating position may be enough to attract some riders.

Should be easy enough to get a test ride on one. Harley is known for that. I probably will go try it out when they hit showroom floors, just for the **** of it.

Good effort. Actually better looking than I expected. If it helps increase/grow the motorcycle market in any way, it is great in my book. I won't be trading my Africa Twin for one anytime soon, but maybe some buyers will like it. I also own a Harley touring bike and love it (for it's intended purpose). Harley quality gets a bad rap in my opinion and experience. Older bikes (ALL bikes) were poorer quality.

I looked someone said 19K and yes it is chain drive and not belt, 550 or so lbs. . Think 147hp. May be a fun Adv. touring bike but I would go driveshaft at that price, like Triumph or BMW

The first pictures I saw and with it being a "Harley", I laughed and blew it off. But these pictures and using it like most of these bikes end up being used, I bet it'll be just fine. Biggest drawbacks will be price I imagine and it'll probably be heavier than expected.
