Kinda scratching my head here. The bike clearly appeals to younger riders, but they cant afford bagger prices for a street bike like this.

21k?? Are they on drugs?? I just saw an investment link on instagram and most of the comments on it were stating they made under 2k/month. How can you expect someone drop 21k on a bike when they barely make that in a year??

As if indian needed any help selling scouts.

In their defense, the Road Glide Ultra got a 114 with little or no price increase.

But seriously, a street glide costs as much as the FXDR

Not bashing them but, I don't care for the price or the looks of it.

You can buy a Busa for 7k less....100 pounds lighter, and probably 100 more HP...not sure which younger crowd is going to buy it

I dunno, on one hand it looks neat, on the other, it dont look neat. I dont like that 2 into 1 ehxaust with the big fat mufflers/cats, that will generate heat. Also, shouldnt they drop the FXD from the FXDR, FXD denotes Dyna, its a Softail is it not? a Softail with a Dyna front end. It should be an FXST**** something or other
