Longtime readers will know that very little luv is shown to motorcycles by Harley-Davidson on this blog.
I think the whole Harley-Davidson 'scene' and its faux counter-culture pretensions obscure some of the better bikes coming out of Milwaukee.
Below is what Harley-Davidson says is its new Forty-Eight. Those in the know will snicker at the notion that anything 'new' comes out of Harley-Davidson.
Most "Hogs" are just that, hogs. Heavy behemoths with huge ancient cubic inch motors that are nothing spectacular.
But, very few bike enthusiasts can totally ignore Harley-Davidson. Their bikes have improved, if even slowly, and if nothing else, they almost always look the part.
I like the 'new' Forty-Eight. It is nice to look at and the cut lines are low to the ground.
You can pick one of these up for less than $11k in the US. Here in the land of the perpetual rip-off this bike will post at least a 30% premium over the US price.
Still, this is one nice looking boney!
