Honda has copied HD again

I just found out that Honda has a copy of the Street 500.

We need to start a movement to keep them from selling it in this country and diminishing the value and reputation of Harely's best motorcycle on the planet.

The Honda is called VT500 Ascot

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

The guys gave me this picture.
The motor looks like the one in 10-64's photo.

Don't know what year it is, but it looks pretty new.

Here's a red one.

Maybe people on this forum could start a class action law suit against Honda.
I'd bet we could get rich.

Leo - what is wrong with you? 10-64 already told you that bike came out in 1983! Why do you ignore actual evidence and continue to push the issue instead of doing the reasonable thing (which would be to say "Oops. Sorry, should have researched first before speaking.")

Gaijin - don't waste your breath or energy.

The Honda is OLD - look at the rear brake - It's a drum, Honda hasn't used those in ages. Look at the engine - Air Cooled V-Twin. Honda uses liquid cooled inline twins on all their new 500 and 700 class bikes. Look at the rear shocks - outboard mounted coil overs. Honda uses inboard mounted Unishocks on almost everything except the Shadow and the Rebel (which are hold overs).

As far as the "Class action lawsuit" I hope Leo can find a lawyer to handle his case. That might keep him busy.

Guys, you know he is a troll right? Look at every single thread he posts in. I wish this forum had some more life and moderation.

Do not feed the troll guys.
