That's what I heard from Porter, tons of easy power and a good ride. When I finally got to his place he'd sent a peg off to some machinist to get the dimensions for a peg lowering replacement (he's 6'6" so that's a pretty standard op for him) and that made the scoot non rideable. Still, the fit and finish is excellent and it comes with the proper items stock, i.e. center stand, grab rail and tach. They've done an excellent job disguising the pipes running to the cat and the radiator is no more obtrusive than our oil coolers. Of course, now I want one...

I was so impressed with the Street Twin I am afraid to ride the Bonnie.

I don't get the Street Twin with basically the same HP and torque as America and Speedmaster 270 motors.

I am thinking the T120 will outsell it by a very large margin. Also standard pegs and upright riding don't fit in today's cruiser image.

Will purist reject it because its a waterhead?

IMHO the America/Speedy and Thunderbird are cruisers.

The Street Twin has it's Torque lower down in the Rev range where most riding is done. That's why an 883 Sportster feels more powerful than an America in everyday riding, even though it is not more powerful.

I think my 05 790 was rated at 61 HP and 50 lbs of torque. I do remember the little Sporty beating me out of the hole but being about even in the 1/4.

I just wonder how many they will sell with the 1200 available.

Waiting for those 1200 cc motors to end up on EBay from crashed bikes. It will take awhile, but show up, they surely will.

I would prefer the 1200 also, I was just making the point that the Street Twin will feel faster than it is due to the low RPM Torque. I'm not talking about a Drag Race, just everyday riding.
