Looks like a pretty incredible bike. Base price is around $25K and loaded is $27K. THAT is going to be hard to beat.

If Goldwing isn't worried they should be.

Also surprised it's a V-Twin. Must be going after the Harley crowd or trying to pick up the Victory Orphans.

Better keep it out on the open road or else roasted nuts. I like the looks of it though. With a belt drive you'd think they would've been able to keep it under 900 lbs.

I think they did a nice job and will sell a bunch this year... however,

you watch.... 2018 the Goldwing will get 2000cc motor, 6 speed trans,and DCT option, modes, heated everything, blue tooth everything and they won't be able to give these V twins away. The V twinner's will buy Harleys and the Touring guys will be back on Wings

You read it here first

I'm not. They have been building the twins since at least 2013 that I know of.

I hear ya on the heat, and that's a complaint about the Indians too but I honestly didn't have a big issue with it, even in 90 degree weather in NC.
