This wheel is apparently going to be one of those "love it or hate it" design options. 
Right now I am not crazy about them...but.....they may grow on me.   Kinda like GM/Chev trucks......every generation is ugly when it comes out.....but...when the next gen comes out the previous one looks better.

PS - I am a fan of spoke wheels on the right bike - Heritage, Deluxe, etc.

But definitely not on a touring bike and certainly not these new ones.  JMHO

I still wonder if the design of that new wheel will give you that "invisible" spoke/wheel look when the bike is going down the road at speed.
That would definitely be a cool look and maybe part of the design process.  :nixweiss:

When someone gets one you'll gave to let us know.

Going down the road I can't see my front my wheel.  Or my back wheel.  Not unless I've really screwed up.

If those wheel spokes were invisible when not moving it would look a lot better.

This would be a good place to start a rumor about a Harley solar powered hoverbike.  :2vrolijk_21:

No no no! Those are seriously ass ugly wheels. I had a Roadking Classic with spokes and they where beautiful but these look like something on a cheap pedal bike from Walmart LOL.
