I don't think even Harley thought they could outperform a sportbike with a cruiser. The V-Rod actually holds its own very well in the cruiser world though.drumtap600RR said:The HD "V-rod" was Harleys attempt at making a bike that could outperform a sportbike - as far as i know, it still can't get the job done.
I dont see anything about street legal in thte question. So yeah, HD make the destroyer which will take a 600 (half the displacement) on the strip, but would loose miserably in the twisties, discounting rider skill. I'm so impressed, I think I'm gonna send them a cookieMeat_Shield said:Does harley make anything stock that can outperform a new 600? both on the strip and in the hills?
Cause they might have to hire engineers. We are talking about a company thats using an engine developed in the 80's. Who run the same models for over 10 years. What do you expect?636dood said:Maybe someone can explain to me why they don't... seems to me there would be a huge market for an american made bike that had the performance and handling of a sportbike.
