LOL. This is not going to be a thread that just dies and never comes back. Time to get some popcorn.
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.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.
I think it was a mix of them copying HD's style of bike and trying to fit within that segment of bikes. I find that it's typical that bikes from different bike makers, even with car makers too, tend to share similar proportions and design cues, but when you look at the close enough you see how different they really are.There is some similarity with the Ascot. But, as others have said, Japan copied Harley styling early on. My gosh, look at the Yamaha Bolt! I want to see the Street 500/750 in person.
there have been older bikes like it but obviously they can't really compare, nothing modern and out right now like it.IN all seriousness I think the Street is pretty unique
I cant find anything else that looks just like it
More like the Honda looks like a HarleyNah, I don't think it looks much like the Honda.
