hardlys adv bike announced

Post by minkyhead » Mon Jul 30, 2018 8:24 pm

bit radical ..

but i watched their video and after the horrible suger sweet syrupy blurb they are looking to have some pretty cool looking machines soon ...they are in trouble and it looks like those old style cruisers are going out of fashion

theres some nice stuff in there but the adv bike looks like a huge pig imho

The electric bike is the only true innovation, obviously. Even that looks heavy and token.

As to the ADV etc, well I wouldn't trust an ancient rusting outfit like HD to deliver a decent modern ADV bike any more than they are capable of making any other motorbike.

Of course, if you value nostalgia at about $80 dollars per kilo it may mean something to you, but otherwise I would stick to a proven manufacturer of up-to-date bikes.

Missed a trick not calling the battery bike the Electra-Glide.
