Two new Harleys…sort of

Same, but different!

It amazes me how many times they can re-hash the same basic layout and prices from £15,645? Wow, what a bargain,............not! Even keen Harley owners must be getting confused with all the different variations. Simply putting different bars, wheels, paint jobs exhausts etc, does not make a new bike! IMO.

Jap bikes are so different are they?

Mostly in line four cyclinder.

Liquid cooled.

Chain driven.

All 1000 or 600 cc.

All same layout mostly since the 1970's.

All within .3 of a second of each other on a track. All around £12000

Then there is the BMW - in line 4, liquid cooled, chain. Doh! £16000

All lose value far quicker than Harley.

All cant go over 70 legally.

None despite all the mod cons do as much as a car in miles per gallon.

So obviously they have moved on so far ahead?

NC700

Parallel twin, all torque, storage area where the "tank" is, you'd have to lose £10K off of a Breakout before it even gets to the price of the Honda, does 88mpg. If you want to bang on about Japanese sportsbikes, go ahead, but by and large they're loved more by designers and marketeers than actual purchasers these days.
