As my triumph tiger verkoop gaan ek n cruiser koop. Besluit nog tussen die Triumph Rocket3 en die HD softail.

Hou my MX bike darem om in modder te speel

109 kW @ 5750rpm and 221Nm @ 2750rpm which is close to idle, it's a monster

That is a lot... :o. That big engine just looks a bit silly sticking out on the sides..

If I have to get a cruiser, it won't be a harley. Maybe the suzuki boulevard...1800cc V-twin. 160Nm, and it looks mean. I read about simple cheapish performance mods that you get for this bike, that will give you even more grunt.

the Rocket (Triumph) I'll also have, and of course, if your offering, the 'new' 1700cc VMAX

Harley's are too expensive. If you disect what your rands get you, they are overpriced.

BUT.....they are indeed, like Jupiter said, cool rides. Remember, they are the absolute original of this genre. The original.

I am a staunch Jap bike fan, but whether it is a Boulevard, Dragstar, Intruder or Royal Star, it will remain a copy. And seen as that.




I own an awesome Yamaha Wildstar which is copy of the Roadking, from the V-twin 1600 cc air cooled push rod engine to the belt drive. And being a Yamaha this thing will never let you down.

I often take this bike out of the garage ahead of my DS bikes and the more I ride it the more I enjoy it.

I especially love dragging cars from the lights, and have yet had one come even close, which surprises the hell out of most of them (I must have a perverted sense of humor)  :laughing4:  It is not surprising really, with the performance pipes etc fitted, this bike produces a ton of torque and can do 0-100 in pretty quickly.
Yes but that is like buying a MX6 and telling everyone "yes but it looks like an Italian sports car"  :biggrin:

Ya but I did not buy it, it just kind of ended up in my garage  :biggrin:

That is like Toyota launching a towncar with a 5lt V-8 turbocharged engine. Any point?
