The cruiser market must truly be on the long-term decline.

The Pan-America is butt ugly. That same headlight on the current Harleys is butt ugly. The streetfighter actually looks like an MT-01 Yamaha, or an old Buell, which isn't a bad thing.
 Weight will be the question on the "adventure" bike, then we will see how adventurous it is. I'm betting they won't come close to the Buell Ulysses or Lightning that they already had for sale 10 years ago! I won't be replacing either of mine with a new Harley.

When I opened the pic of the Pan-America at 5AM this morning, I thought someone had built a pig of an ADV bike out of a Venture Royale Yamaha. It has that 80s vibe going on! It took a second for my bleary eyes to figure out what the hell I was looking at...then I checked to make sure it wasn't April First! Next time, "Coffee first, then motorcycles!" , like it says on my mug. Lol.

The Pan-Am..... Looks like the family truckster.
The street fighter..... I’m diggin.
The electric thing..... meh, electric ain’t my cup o tea. I love the sounds, smells, and vibes that can only come from a motorcycle powered by an internal combustion engine. To me the experience wouldn’t be the same.

I like the street fighters look, and reading further they are promising a fully faired sport bike based on the same platform...hmmm

The others?    Not so much.

But it all comes down to how they run and how they ride.  HD is justly known for building overweight and underpowered motorcycles, when compared to much of the competition....especially when trying to build and sell performance type bikes.  Will these new bikes be more of the same?  Or will they be more than just a visual departure from the typical HD platform?  Only time will tell.  I’m goi g to want to see and possibly ride the new bikes before I pass judgement on them.  But for now, I think those bikes look promising, even if some are ugly.

Amen Brother

And at least they are trying to do something  different

Motor Company is making an attempt to remain relevant in the industry.

Am I the last guy on the planet that loves a big ole round headlight?  If you wanna put a bunch of bulbs and reflectors in there, fine.  Just make it big & round!

 Bigok
 Same sentiment here! I prefer round. One or two will do.
