A Good Review

A good review of the USA built 750. This guy understands what the Street is all about.

Interesting the spec sheet is Carrying Showa as the fork and shock system.

Clearly the 500 I test rode was Endurance....

I like the review, but I think the spec sheet Harley is sending with the press kit is incorrect on the shocks and forks. Same thing happened in the Cycle World magazine... same spec sheet.

You know, I think I saw a comment somewhere a while back, that said that Harley was using some parts from the India factory on the early bikes, just until the USA factory got up to speed and their supply lines for parts got in place. So I am hopeful that the spec sheet is not a mistake, and the 750 will have Showa forks and shocks.

i wonder how many people know that, was this made public or did they just keep it as info that you actually had to dig up?

I have never seen it published. And all the 500s I have looked at are sporting Endurance not Showa. That does not mean the 750 won't be different, but the parts book calls the same number in the break down page of the front end and the rear shocks for both the 500 and the 750.

ah good to know, seeing how we still have yet to see reviews from many publications, the chance to see it in one of them still stands for now
