 If this gets counted as two more of the  hundred new Harley Davidson models that are going to be introduced over the next few years they’re in trouble

I should have titled it 2 “new” sportsters.  I do like the bars they put on them but at 6’1” and 270 lbs, I am not in their target market.  I’d look like a gorilla on a tricycle trying to ride that thing.

Whats different from my girl's 16' 48 we bought new for sticker out the door $11,300.  (Bars & Color?)  Well at least they didn't raise the price!

This is exactly what I was talking about when I scoffed at their claim about bringing out 100 new models.  They make some minor cosmetic changes to an old design, wave the marketing magic wand, and they have two "new" models.  If this is how they think they will attract new young riders to the brand, they have obviously been drinking too much of their own Kool-Aid.  Willy got away with this kind of hokus pocus BS for a long time, but the folks who fell for Willy's stuff are too old for these.

The MoCo has done this for years - take the taillights from one model, handlebars from another, fender from a third model, add a different paint scheme and HD tank logo, mix them together and bam, it’s a new model.

How about a Sporty or Dynatail with a Revolution engine?
