It’s a great looking bike. It’s has a low stance, old feeling, more vintage like than 2018 bike to ride. And the combination of small structure with a bulletproof engine, is almost a dream. It’s not a match to speed bikes, but it’s powerful enough for driving in town or cruising at the right speed comfortably. The gearbox is clunky, and in a way that is exactly what HD fans like about them, and the mechanical feeling is not what I missed with the 883, same as all HD bikes.


The electronics are kept very simple, I mean really simple, which, in a way, is a good thing cuz you won’t have any serious electric problem. The only downsize is about active safety, when compared with the competition, since it offers a large panel of stability and cruise controls. Which could have let this old vintage bike fit in this modern world. However, it’s not the end of the world since this bike is updatable with a lot of aftermarket parts, and it's good new to modifiers. And who knows, I hope someone takes the lead in the future and add the necessary security panel to this good looking bike.


For maintenance, Harley Davidson parts are available worldwide, from engine and structure parts to the tiny little screw. Which means this bike can be restored from scratch no matter how old it is.


For brakes, they are a little bit spongy, not because of quality but rather because of American culture, they seem to like ‘em this way, and it is always possible to reset them for a more precise stop.


I would have given it a 5 stars, but I took one for the safety bag. It’s still a stable and safe bike to ride, but what the competition is offering is better in this matter, only this matter.
