Good engine for its purpose. The offset transmission and resulting offset frame make it borderline dangerous for any serious cornering.

I like that it's sized smaller but it's way too fucking heavy. Nearly 600lbs.

Make it closer to 500lbs while fixing the frame geometry and give it atleast 80hp peak stock without losing the low rpm power.

Because Harleys are constructed in suicide net-tier factories that hire the cheapest unqualified workers that accept shit wages.
>>
Because I own a 1200cc Indian FTR and sportsters are gay
>>
Because my 23 year old Yamaha 600 touring bike is more to my liking.

The aluminum panniers, top box and tank bag let me carry all my shit effortlessly, but they'd look like shit on a sportster....

But I'd test drive a 1200 Sportster for shits and giggles given the chance, sure.

Because I drive something that isn't a glorified bicycle. Your bikers need to know they have these things called cars now that keep the rain off you and don't tip over when they hit a patch of sand.

Sorry you can't afford to have hobbies

>>23851983
no

>>23851983
They're overpriced, underperforming and heavy as shit for their size. Cut the sticker price in half and might consider it as a novelty, but not as a serious motorcycle.

>Sportster originally invented to be an American competitor to English roadsters, the sportbikes of their time
>so thoroughly BTFO’d by the Japs they turn it into a chopper
>Harley already has a half dozen choppers in their lineup, so the Sportster gains a reputation as the baby Harley “for girls”

^this is why I don’t own one. Tell me when they turn it into something that eats the Triumph Bonneville’s lunch again.

Because a 1200 Indian scout makes almost double the power
