Last 7 bikes in a row were HD's... None performed anywhere near the Ninja.
The handling on the 650R (especially after riding cruisers for 40 years) is amazing.
The available speed (most certainly low end torque) is more than I would ever use.
1/3 the price of my last Harley
The noise was part of the reason I was done with HD's... Not only for myself, but for the neighbors. I live in a retirement community (golf, tennis etc.). With the Screaming Eagle Heavy breather and Vance & Hines large radius pipes the Fatboy had sounded like an entire gang of hardcore bikes. Felt guilty coming home after 9 pm... Quiet and fast now & I like ityeah its a whole other world when you twist the throttle to make speed not noise. welcome aboard the drama express.
