They should have made the engine like Moto Guzzi and pushed the foot control more forward.
Yup they should have abandoned their heritage engine format on their heritage style motorcycle. That would have made everyone happier. Shame that nobody is making a power cruiser with a Moto Guzzi style transverse V-Twin and drive shaft, you'd think at least one Italian company would have figured that out by now...They should have made the engine like Moto Guzzi and pushed the foot control more forward.
Well I guess they figured that the Cruiser market is a dying segment and only existent in the USA.Shame that nobody is making a power cruiser with a Moto Guzzi style transverse V-Twin and drive shaft, you'd think at least one Italian company would have figured that out by now...
Cruisers don't normally have much hp. Torque is where it's at, to get the hugely heavy things moving, especially when riding 2-up. (Sorry if you were just kidding and I'm beating a dead horse! )Here’s some pics from last Saturday.
Looking forward to see the bobber!
Yes!! I've never understood the allure of chrome plating everything on a bike. It's hard to keep clean, and I'd rather spend my time riding my motorcycle than polishing.it. It's not that looks don't matter to me, but when a bike is a pain to keep clean (and keep from rusting) the looks aren't worth the trouble to me.To my eye its a rather handsome and elegant bike, though keeping all the chrome clean would do my head in.
The bike is a work of art except for the silencers and the plastic thingy covering the air-box.Looks pretty good - apart from the silencers!
I respectfully disagree. The mufflers are kind of cartoonish in my opinion, but also stylish and a definite homage to custom cruisers of the past. But I bet they weigh a ton, and won't be cheap to replace since there are two of them, and they're massive.agreed....the muffler is god awful.
