    Great video Matt! Comments seem pretty positive aside from the few "final nail in the coffin" remarks. I've heard the whole thing about HD being behind in the times over and over, and then they announce these new bikes and people still gotta hate!! Damned if ya do and damned if ya don't type of thing I guess. HD will continue to build and sell bikes no matter what, their core buyer thrives on its history and pride of ownership. They'll forever build big cruisers, but its pretty cool to see them expanding into these other markets.

    Good on Harley. Harley needs to push the envelope in the industry. They haven't done that in decades. They might find that they no longer be the brand that everyone "eventually buys" in any category anymore. This will be a long hill to climb, but I'm glad they are headed there. Buell never had the brand cache to warrant further development.

    Matt, given the expansion of all these vehicles: will the dealerships at present be expected to handle all these models in their showroom inventories? And won't the demand for more mechanics requiring new training be pressing? Or will there be new ways to market/sell these units? It sounds like a window of just 2 years would mean ramping up on all this in a short time given the present size/capabilities of some of the Harley-Davidson dealerships in America.

    The boring electric motorbike sounds crap like a UK battery milk float. Kills the character of a Harley that beautiful potato, potato sound and roar. It might help save the planet but it certainly will kill my interests in Harley Davidson and what there about.

    I really hope they dont get rid of the sportster. Maybe just have one or two varieties and let the aftermarket keep it alive. Personally I'm excited for the smaller displacement bikes, I really think the street line was wasted potential.

    Harley has been guzzling the lunatic leftist Trump Derangement Syndrome cool aid. Harley does NOT want MAGA and does not want steel and aluminum in the USA so Harley can DIE OF OLD AGE just like their customer base.
    Looking at buying an Indian.

    They should also make a Livewire variation with supersport styling. Fairings, clip ons, riding position, even fat tires . I know that would be a motorcycle people would want . There were several companies that were building these type of bikes and many people were preordering . A few failed miserably .The problem was going from prototype to production . They didn't quite have the money or the means to get the e-bikes or the companies themselves off the ground. Harley Davidson on the other hand is one of the few companies that can succeed where they have failed . They need to expand their customer base in order to succeed after the boomers can no longer ride . No other company has the dealer network like HD . They can become the future of motorcycling if they only see that they most embrace tomorrow's riders & also realize there will always be a place for the classic Harley Davidson as well. They are well positioned to be the #1 motorcycle manufacturer in the world period. These bikes are a step in the right direction. Really excited for what they have planned for the distant future.

    Hey Matt, you might forward this idea to HQ, BMW has different displacement options for their 'Adventure Bikes'. Why? WEIGHT! I WANT MY HARLEY ADVENTURE BIKE WITH THE 975cc MOTOR because it will be lighter in WEIGHT, or at least it should be. Unnecessary weight off road is a killer. I DON'T WANT IT!

    • Matt Laidlaw

      Agreed but a 1250 doesn’t necessarily weight more. If it’s the same engine.

    Matt; something that has not been mentioned is a DCT or auto trans like Honda has out now. Since HD is looking at that market, I would expect they might be working on an auto trans for the internal combustion bikes. Speculation for sure, however.....

    I hate to be on the negative side of things, but am I the only one that think these new bikes look really cheesy looking? I like that Harley is trying to be more innovative and competitive, but the design doesn't really make me want to be seen on one. It looks like it has a Robocop body with an engine from Dragon Ball Z. Where's the class?

  • Tommy D
    Tommy D 6 месяцев назад

    Matt, Great video. I really like the fat bob looking one, but if it replaces the sportster line, then I hope they keep a sportster price line. Not everyone can do a $25k motorcycle. If they can keep the price down on these bikes, I think it will be a great avenue to a lot if new customers from the dual sport and sports bike worlds.

Then again part of me still wants a 1200cc air cooled engine rumbling under me. decisions, decisions

    Some important questions. How will that adventure bike compare with a stock standard KTM 1290 Adventure that delivers 177 horsepower and 104 lbft torque ? Will these bikes also require a $5k Stage 4 kit to produce 'above moped' power ? Will it have all the standard options including things like a quick shifter that both the KTM and BMW GS have ? Will it be priced to compete with those bikes ? Can this adventure bike compete with a company that has the pedigree in research and development backed up by 17 consecutive wins in the Dakar rally ? This is my prediction. 5% chance of this working out for Harley. They will sell a few of these bikes to their existing loyal brainwashed base. 95% chance that it is the kicks of a dying animal and will be the mercy bullet. Harley's shares are in the toilet and they decided to do something which most production corporates would see as insanity. Force these bikes to market 7 years early. Like a cornered wild animal it looks like an extremely desperate but slightly stupid attempt at survival. Goodnight Harley Davidson. Someone turn off the lights. Indian brought out ONE new bike and they are about to thrash the pants off Harley. Karma after all these years.

    I'm excited to see HD branching out. I've owned Buells before, and would love an HD adventure bike. I hope that the 975cc sport model comes in a version that is very sportbike-like, as it kills me to see that there isn't a full-production American sportbike. It doesn't even have to top 200mph to satisfy me; some slight updates to a Firebolt-like capability and I'd have loads of fun with it. I'll still keep my Ironhead though ;-)

    That's what we need is a dirt bike that weighs 800 pounds. Did you see that thing jump that hill? Looked like a whale trying to fly. Plus you drop it with it weighing 800 pounds and you are going to do some damage that is going to cost you big time. But it you just want to piss money away go for it.

    Thank you Matt for the information which is easy to understand from a laymans point of view.

    I am a young guy, actually a millennial, but I have no interest in an electric bike or car. I think they're lame and nerdy. I am interested in the street fighter and the new custom model. I think they'd be crazy to ditch the Sportster namesake, that might be why they are just calling the new cruiser the "custom", maybe they're considering it as the Sporty replacement.

    the live wire motor thing looks kinda ugly, sort of like the old boxer motor bmw used back in the the day. the flat plank style seat looks like a 2x4 with a peace of vinyl on top. the pan America name sounds to much like pan-am, and there is that plank seat again, also to me the snout needs a more stylish nose job other than that its pretty dope. the street fighter looks great all over. nice seat. the new sporty looks great except the fat front tire in relation to the location of the radiator and no fender guard in between could mean trouble for the fragile radiator and there is that plank seat again. however i like the idea of HD expanding their thinking. i hope they do well in these endeavors. time will tell. as for me know body does cruisers like HD. the sound, the looks, know body does it better. i cant afford one though. hopefully that will change for me with some of these new models.

    Canceling the Sportster would be a HUGE mistake. It is the ONLY bike that can give you the traditional Harley experience (sound and feel) for a more reasonable price. That sound and feel IS Harley Davidson, and they are doomed without it. I love my carbureted 1200 Sportster with an aftermarket exhaust.I rode Japanese for decades. I'd sure hate to see H-D build Japanese style bikes (smooth and quiet) Hopefully this bike will be a replacement for the Buell/V-Rod bikes. Maybe it will also replace the hideous and very poor quality "Street" series, especially if it comes in a 500cc displacement for beginners. I'm not against Harley building something new, but they damn sure need to keep what they have. As for the "livewire" it needs to be buried 200 miles deep. It's well past time we got over this battery powered toy fad.

    Adventure bike, yes!!! But, I have a big 'but'. Unless it is going to up there in performance with the world leaders in this class like BMW, Triumph and KTM (perhaps even the Ducati Multistrada), then it will be a failure. It would be great to see HD return to the cirucit racing scene with the Street Fighter, competing in world class (ie. 'world', not USA) motorcycling racing. 16 new models, hope this is not the typical HD BS, you know, fitting saddlebags, windscreen, sissy bar and a rack to a Sportster and then calling it a 'new' model.

    Erik Buell was HD's only real chance to remain innovative and relevant as a motorcycle company. If the current CEO and board of directors at H-D have any sense at all they would hire Erik Buell back immediately and give him carte blanche to run things as he sees fit. He was/is H-D's only hope! All that being said if H-D is expecting to compete with BMW and KTM in the Top tier 20K+ Adventure bike segment with this new Pan America concept that they better have their shit together! There are some really, really well developed bikes in those classes. Harley is going to have to win on merit not name in this game. Or they will end up making fools of themselves and be the laughing stock of the motorcycle world yet again...

      I have waited on harley for years to make the bike I’ve been waiting on.
      Test rode the v rod, low rider s with the 110, street glide with the m8, even the 114 fat bob. Walked away every time disappointed I
      No power, limited handling, but most importantly they didn’t fit my requirements.
      Guess I will have to build my own
      Harley it’s so simple
      FXR or FXRP
      Big motor
      7 speed transmission
      Performance suspension
      Smiles for miles
      Hey Harley
      If the pan America is your answer to the bmw or triumph adv bikes that’s fine I guess
      If your going after the dirt adv market
      Go sit on a Ktm 1090, 1290 adventure r
      Go sit on a Ktm 500exc
      Watch Ktm 990 adventure go up the rubicon trail
      Realize that Ktm has spent years perfecting light weight dirt and street bikes
      Realize that they have keep true to there slogan ready to race in what they build.
      Realize how they bought Husaberg, then husqvarna, then merged them back together as one again (read about the 25 yr history of husaberg and how it came to be. How the soul of husqvarna decided that cagiva was not going to be there destiny, how they built husaberg from meager beginnings to what it became In the end with the 70 degree motor before Ktm merged them. )
      I say that because it falls right in line with what SRT speed 5 said. Harley needs someone to remind them where they were with buell, the fxr and where they could be with it today if it was updated
      The aftermarket has shown that there is a desire for that style bike but no harley doesn’t listen
      Buell made other bikes yes but I’m only referring to the fxr
      The buell bikes he made are also up for discussion but that would be on the streetfighter or pan America discussion that I’m not talking about here
      Ktm in the last 10 years has improved by leaps and bounds with all there product lines, overall listening to there base (except for the cry for a true light weight rally bike or to fix the close ratio 6 speed with a wide ratio one on the 690 enduro. I don’t think the 790 will fill that niche but at least there trying something)
      If Ktm was to build a cruiser to go after harley I would say the same thing about Ktm
      Ktm is not perfect not by a long shot ( read airboxes pass dirt)
      But they keep pushing the envelope
      Harley just pushes the envelope you put in the mailbox with that payment every month.
      Harley I’m getting tired of waiting
      I’m 43
      How many more bikes will I buy
      Or am I to old for your new demographic of riders
      I look forward ( Harley Davison) to your reply
      Yeah I know the fxr frame is to expensive to make
      Yeah I know the whole buell story
      Yeah I know that I’m not your target rider
      I want harley to succeed believe me
      But it’s bad that everyone still says the fxr was Harley’s best handling bike (even out handles the mono shock dyna according to the experts
      Not my words
      And it’s 2018- what was the last year of the fxr???????
      Move forward harley not backwards
      The folklore of the fxr with harley is legendary
      When people say hayabusa they know that it’s a fast bike
      When people say fxr they say that was Harley’s best handling bike they ever made.
      Well Harley im waiting

    This is great news for Harley guys that have been looking for a second bike and want something entirely different. Let's hope Harley keeps the Streetfighter trim and well under 600lbs so it compares to other bikes in it's class. The BMW R1200 is 509lbs wet. The Yamaha MT-09 is barely 400lbs. That's what makes these bikes fun.

    Yeah. They lost me when they said high end low volume sales. Means super expensive like a lot of their bikes. Which means not a lot of them will be sold here in the USA. So this whole new line of bikes looks like their selling in Europe. The two I see maybe being popular out here are the new custom and the sport touring. The other to went do very well due to it's price tag and small niche market. Also new technology is good and all but the more complex you make something. The more the chances of failure of parts. So don't botch when shit brakes and you have to take it in to get fixed.

  • Francesco Galli

    The idea of a modular plaform that can replace the various sportsters, streets and the v-rod is pretty cool.
    However, much as I like it in terms of aestetics and appeal, the Pan America is doomed to fail here in Europe unless Harley takes a sharp turn toward technology. Adventure touring bikes sold here, like the BMW 1200 GS or the Ducati Multistrada, are almost spaceships in terms of engine and frame technology, and HD has a lot to pick up in that regard. We'll see what the engine and frame will be.

    Always did admire the Buell Ulysses. I wonder what, if any, of the Pan American is derived from the Ulysses.

    Wow! If Harley Davidson makes and electric bicycle with a big frame and reasonably priced, then I'm buying one. Hope these new models aren't all made in India....

    I've been down on Harley for the last few years because I just didn't think they were keeping up with the times. Triumph has no problem making everything from cruisers to adventure bikes, so I always thought, why can't HD? I know there's been a religious fan base for cruisers but things change. After today's announcement, I'm in for at least the street fighter. Maybe even the adventure bike. The only thing that could mess this up is if HD prices these bikes unrealistically. They need to keep these bikes below $18k and maybe closer to 15k in order to make these sell. I hope corporate is listening, $30k bikes will be a disaster.
