Check out the new 113 cu. in. FI Raider custom from Star motorcycles,
this one is going to be a contender for Harley, I do believe.

Its amazing how many companies mimick the HD styling and characteristics. Air cooled or not, there is a large market for them, but I'll never change from my Harley!

Every one says they mimic, but no one remembers that it was the MoCo that sold the tools dies and plans to the Japanese, Look up Ryukio before the MoCo deletes it from all thre official l history.

If I was 20 something and had limited income and wanted a Motorbike that was reliable that would be it.
As far as Mimicking I dont agree, a small cruiser is a small cruiser how many variations on that platform can there be thats like saying every 2 door converatble looks alike. How about how HD keeps making the same bikes every year after year after year so going into a dealeships its hard to tell this years from last to 10 years ago.

That´s just what I had to do when I was in my 20´s and couldn´t afford anything better than Jap bikes :broke:

But I knew that someday I would get the REAL THING :notworth: :)

Still that Yammy looks pretty good but it still aint a Harley and the girl´s are gonna know......:kiss:

Preach it brother, PREACH IT!!!

What, are they trying to reinvemt the Softail by using a different brand name, styling cues blatantly ripped off of Harley, and the poor Japanese still trying to steal that "mystique" by using am air cooled motor that is not near as good as their liquid cooled offerings and pumping up the displacement....because that's what Americans want! :angeldev:

Well yeah....at least a couple DIFFERENT things like the Harley Rocker and the Buell 1125 and it's brand new Rotax engine, which is the first sportbike to come along and make me actually want one.
