    Read this yesterday. Chinese Harley's are a great idea. Also invading Russia by land in the winter, peeing on an electric fence, and messing around with Jim- all great ideas.

    Didn't Harley market a 350cc bike in the late 60's ? One cylinder piece of junk.

    I once rode some kind of Italian Harley in the early '70s. It was a small bike. The guy who owned it had far fewer problems with it than my Dad had with his ElectraGlide at the time.

    I seem to remember that little Harley having the shifter on the wrong side.

    I'm glad to see Harley trying something other than huge V-Twins. Now, Indian needs to do the same, but for the American market. We need a wide range of bikes so the young folks can work their way up to the big tourers.

    The size is perfectly fine. The issue is that this bike is brand engineered. It's made by an Italian marque, owned by a Chinese company that does business in Iran. The only thing Harley about it is the tank badge.

    We already have an entire thread on this garbage. I think @Meggie was the first to point this stuff out.

    I take on board all you're saying baldhead and yes, its not a true Harley, I accept that but the concept, the idea I feel is a good one, in that both Indian and harley should be bringing out smaller engined, smaller sized bikes to allow people to enter the market at a younger age and also at an affordable price,.......and as the young ones get bigger, so will they bikes they ride,......

    ...aaand, that’s what it looks like boys and girls, when you become what’s called a “sellout”.
