If I'm going to pay HD prices, I want something that looks like an HD... not another cookie-cutter bike that requires a billboard-sized sign to claim it's a Harley.

The Street 500/750 flopped for exactly that reason.  Way to learn the lesson, HD.

I know HD wants to diversify and expand their market but this will only devalue the brand. Only time will tell who is right.

Joint venture. Performance numbers are meh. Maybe Benelli buys HD or becomes a "partner"?  They make 1.2 million vehicles a year already.

The first of many I'm sure to lose the 1 as the first digit of the VIN. Next it'll be the Sporty or whatever they're calling it nowadays.
