LOL. This is not going to be a thread that just dies and never comes back. Time to get some popcorn.

I had a VT500 back in the 80's and it was a great bike...especially since I was a city dweller back then. If these new HD mini's turn out to be as reliable and fun as that bike was, HD has several sure winners. I think it's about time for the hp wars to end anyway...I mean who really needs 2000+ CC's on a half ton bike?

The 750 will be getting a sharp look from me, and who knows, maybe one day HD will get real brave and put a tranny on this similar to that on Suzuki's Burgman line of mega scooters.

Yes it is similar to the Honda, but remember, that Honda was inspired by the flattrack bikes of its day; namely the Harley-Davidson XR-750! So it doesn't trouble me with its resemblance.

good, we have some open minded harley guys here! I'm curious if you guys feel that the Harley Streets have the potential to pull from the Japanese faithful? I mean typically the tastes of Japanese riders and Harley riders have been diametric, but the Streets seem to be making a real effort to bridge that gap...

Since Harley hasn't put something out like this in a while, I think it could pull from the Japanese sales. Plenty of people would be happy to buy an American bike instead, but right now there aren't too many options for them.

At least at the end of the day we can say HD were the pioneers of bikes like this. Although honda builds some amazing bikes, when it comes to bikes like this, HD deserves a lot of respect.
