I have a good friend here in Tanzania looking at purchasing a Harley but not sure which are the reputable dealers. Who is recommended in either Jo'Burg/Pretoria or CT?

Cheers

I just bought mine at Gold Rand in Boksburg. Very good so far.
I also believe Pretoria is excellent.

Esh, that's a good looking machine!

If the 750 engine is 40% smaller than the 1250 V-rod....I hope they can offer this bike also at 40% less  :xxbah:

Was wondering if anyone has ridden the Victory and/or Indian and how do they compare to the HD?

Was wondering if anyone has ridden the Victory and/or Indian and how do they compare to the HD?

They are supposed to be top end of the marked, competing only with the very best HD has to offer.

According to one of the testers of recent (Indian was tested) definitely superior in many ways from classic looks through to performance.

Polaris is the manufacturer, and they only target the top end of the marked with most of their products, from side by sides to snow mobiles as well as bikes.

However, HD will ways be the 'iconic brand' and still today most people who know or doesn't know motorcycles will always comment when a cruiser ride by; 'look at that nice Harley' and most will tell you; 'one day when my ship comes I will ide a Harley'

With regards to the 500 and 750. They are great looking machines, although one can clearly see that it is meant to produce in numbers and commercialised just by looking and comparing the Indian mass produced wheels (cast) with HD models build in the States. Yes is still HD, and looking good but the Americans will probably not even acknowledge it a 'real HD' because it is 'refined, water-cooled and build in India'.

Finally a HD model which will be affordable to the middle class bikers who's not bothered by status but just want to own share in the pleasure of ownership.

They should come in at around R80K and R100K
