what do you guys think, it may have lost something for me but give it time.
i think it needs a bigger headlight to match the big tyre.

I'm not real keen on the larger front tire either!

I am not a fan of chrome, so really like ´blacked out´bikes.
Will be interesting to see the fat front tire in person. However it won´t arrive here in Mallorca for quite some time, according to the dealer.

Not a fan of the beefed up front end. One reason why I liked the current version so much was because of the rim and tire size up front. Nice on the breaks on the new model, but think the single work well enough and could simply update the rotor/pots to get more breaking.

I would have liked twin discs, but am getting used to the single. Tried an Indian scout with a big fat tyre, not for me. Do like the black though. Shame to those who have spent a small fortune getting it there.
